We just spent the weekend in Greenwood, Wisconsin at Missionary Baptist Church visiting with friends, Pastor Geoff and Pam Smith.
Our family shares a number of similarities with the Smiths. Geoff and I are both from Pennsylvania (having grown up about 45 minutes away from each other). Sarah and Pam are both from Colorado. We all attended Northland Baptist Bible College, and then Geoff and I both graduated from the same seminary. Not only that, but both sets of families have 5 children. Needless to say, we had a lot of fun spending time together.
As in just about every place we go, we have felt very welcomed. Our kids loved the time playing together, and we had some fun outings (like visiting a farm and playing miniature golf). I am grateful for Geoff and Pam’s ministry at Missionary Baptist, and their investment in our family as well. They were very gracious hosts and were so kind to take time out of their schedules to make us feel at home!
