Set Course for Vincennes, Indiana


Friday, April 15
, I had intended to leave Winona, MS for Vincennes, IN, but instead I made a detour – going the opposite direction. Off and on for a few weeks, my teeth have been bothering me. Thursday night I decided that the pain was significant enough and regular enough that I needed to address that situation before embarking on a 2-week, stateside excursion. So, Friday, I made my way to Jackson, MS – two hours away – to have the dental problem examined. Brother Andy Dulaney was unavailable, and so, his son Drew took charge. The short-term solution was prescriptions for antibiotics and pain.

Jerry and Paula with the help of visitors Kenneth and Connie Tipton had everything unloaded and put away before I got back. Good timing on my part, huh? The local preacher lent a hand, too.

Finally, late Saturday afternoon I left Winona and headed to Collierville, TN to my daughter Rebecca’s home. Saturday night, Rebecca and I – mostly Rebecca – worked on repairing her washer. After Bible class and worshipping twice on Sunday with the Collierville Church of Christ, Rebecca and I finished mending her washer and changed out the storm windows in her doors with screens. Between worship periods, we enjoyed a very tasty lunch at Corky’s Barbeque.

Brother Roger and sister Mary Wright are my hosts; he preaches for the Central Church of Christ in Vincennes. The last time I visited Vincennes, Bonnie accompanied me, but of course, now I am alone since her passing. The India Workshop continues through Friday, the last day really being a tour of Vincennes.

Then, I will go over to McMinnville, TN where I will be preaching, Lord willing, at two different congregations. Tuesday, I will go to Hamilton, AL in preparation for the Maywood Missionary Retreat that will be Thursday and Friday. Eventually, I will return to Winona and return to the dentist office on May 3 to see about my teeth. All I need are some more holes in my head!
