Visiting Around

In addition to readjusting to Central Standard Time – an adaptation from nearly two months about 12 time zones away, Bonnie and I are trying to catch up on some of the things at home and in the office that we were unable to do in our absence. We have been attending doctor and dentist visits, too. We were exposed to some diseases while abroad and Bonnie broke a tooth. Bonnie is about over her cough, but mine lingers. Today (Wednesday), she had to go for tests at the local hospital because of something that was discovered in her blood work. We’ll have to wait to see if there is anything there over which to be concerned. My white blood count is elevated, possibly related to an infection associated with my lingering cough.

Sunday, November 18, Bonnie and I accepted the invitation to visit the Union, MS Church of Christ for morning worship. Our good friends Therman and Sadie Hodge worship there. There was a fellowship meal at the building following morning worship. It was pleasant to be warming a pew for a change rather than being the speaker.

That evening, we worshipped with the Siwell Road Church of Christ in Jackson, MS. This congregation is our sponsoring church. Once more, it was pleasant to feed on the spiritual diet presented by others. We made an appointment for a future presentation about our 2012 mission trips.

Monday, Bonnie had some preliminary repair work done on her broken tooth. Afterward, we spent enjoyable hours at a local eatery, talking over sandwiches with Gary Hampton.

Brethren John Dean Muppidi from India, Therman Hodge and Erving Skinner came to be with us through lunch. Jerry and Paula Bates and Bonnie and I hosted our visitors for homemade lunch. We enjoyed one another’s company, and John Dean brought by some boxes of books for us to ship to India. In addition, he selected books from our warehouse to add to the shipment.

We are visiting around and receiving visitors as well since our return last week from 48 days overseas. Shortly, Bonnie and I will resume our traveling and teaching stateside; we are gone about 45 weekends annually – including time in distant lands.
