Not alot of news

Not alot going on here as far as work. I am at 96% support though!
There are some plans being made for what I can begin to do once I am released to my ministry assignment. Apart from training meetings that I'll need to attend, one of those plans is to attend the Youth Specialties conference in St.Louis in November. We plan to interview youth leaders as to what areas of their ministry we can help them accomplish in missions. I am creating a list of questions that we will use. We are also creating a design for our booth at the conference, complete with tents and hammocks. This is represent the camping ministry called Jungle Jump Off. We hope to recruit both campers and helpers!
Last week I was blessed to have been given a trip to Ohio with my Dad to see a special air show, called the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends! There they gathered 100 P-51 Mustangs (WWII aircraft) among other aircraft. It was a really special weekend, not only to be surrounded by my very favorite airplanes, but to spend time with my Dad. We can't stop talking about it. I took 200+ pictures, but here are a few for you.
Right after I returned from Ohio, a girlfriend came to visit me here in Ca. Anna Tuckwiller from Virginia came for a week. Her last request was to watch the sun set over the Pacific. As you can see, it didn't disappoint!
As to prayer requests, I have found a church that offers a singles ministry and although it is far away I plan to supplement my future home church with that ministry. I am so excited to have been introduced to this Evangelical Free church ministry. I am still looking for a local home church. Also, I will be traveling at least once every month for the next few months. It's hard to settle here and travel so much, although I LOVE to travel. So I would appreciate prayers that I can settle with a church and friends here while at the same time accomplish all the travel. One of those trips is coming up next week. I will be going back to CT for Calvary's Missions conference and hopefully the birth of my next nephew/niece! Perfect timing!!! Thank you God! and thank you Dan Getz Jr for the ticket home!!! Thank you for checking in on me and my ministry situation! See many of you very soon!
