Vegas and Musicals.


Yesterday was a long day at work. We left Prescott at 5:45 and drove over to Las Vegas for a couple of meetings and then drove back, we got home around 8:15.

The trip was nice and we got to hang out with a bunch of children's pastors at an area networking meeting. It was cool seeing all these people working in children's ministry and how they are working so hard to provide quality experiences for the kids they work with.

After that meeting, we went over to Pei Wei (pronounced Pay-Way, pardon?) and met with some of the youth ministry team from Central Christian Church. They have a really cool ministry going on where they run 3 or so campuses, but are teacing on the same lesson plan and doing lots of activities together. Each of the guys has their own area of expertice, from writing the material to marketing to leader development and others. We had a blast hanging with them and hopefully they will be coming to camp this coming summer with the JR High kids.


Rachel is directing a childrens musical that will be performing in March and last night they had audicians. She said it was great seeing all the kids and being back in a theater environment. I know she will do a great job and while she loves banking, she excited to work with something artistic, even if its just on a very part time basis. I am really happy for her and can't wait to see it all come together.

I'm glad you had fun in Vegas! Play any slots? :)
I KNOW Rachel will definitely enjoy working with the community theater. She is just like her mum! I think that's why I have embraced crochet to the extent I have over here. I MUST have some kind of creative outlet in my life! If I can't have theater, then I had to find a substitute. Artistic people must have an outlet or we just withdraw and get depressed! I am happy that YOU, Chris, have found an outlet with playing for that singer. It is as necessary to people like us as breathing!

You spelled auditions wrong...
