We were privileged to have Ward Tanneberg of the CASA Network as a speaker for the first day and a half. I had attended an event sponsored by CASA in Anaheim last fall and found it to be encouraging and inspiring. This gathering scored high in that respect as well.

An Encouraging Conference/Retreat
I just returned this evening from a three-day trip to Little Rock, AR where I met with about a dozen fellow senior adult ministers. I only knew one of the attendees prior to the meeting, but I enjoyed some rich fellowship and sharing with these men. It turns out that I had mutual acquaintances with a number of these guys. One had served as a music prof for our worship minister and had been a classmate of a close missionary friend from Argentina. Another had taken a mission trip to Argentina, serving alongside a former colleague there. Still another was good friends of a missionary acquaintance from Mexico. I'm amazed at times at the number of relationships and ties that exist in Baptist life when you scratch below the surface just a little bit.
