Our CMA chapter is having the annual 8 chapter campout this weekend. This year we are at the Baptist Encampment on Pace Bend Road. One of our members works part time at the facility, and they have a home there. They graciously opened their home and “porch” for all the activities. The house actually has a covered porch that goes all the way around the outside of the house. Pretty neat. Debbie and I aren’t doing any camping, so we went out the for day. and a great day it was. Food, fellowship and fun.
We had our Seasons of Refreshing yesterday and today in fairfield, which is about a 2 1/2 hour drive north east of Austin. Debbie and I drove up yesterday afternoon, using Hy79, which was great as there was little traffic. The conference was held in the First Baptist Church of Fairfield, which is a very beautiful traditional building with pews and stained glass windows. Very nice. The actual conference was very good too, John Ogden Jr our Regional Evangelist was the primary speaker and he gave a very grace filled message. We had BBQ for lunch on Saturday. I took about 40 of my Moments books along, and gave them all away. Oh, you will see some photos that may look strange, so I should mention that we had some skits to illustrate some of John’s teaching point.
Tonight was out monthly chapter meeting at IHOP. We had several visitors, which was real nice. It was a good meeting and the mood was light. We also had our 2014 Officer Nominations and several officer positions have multiple people running for the office. There may even be some competition for the Chaplain position, oh my 🙂
Also had some good socializing afterwards (otherwise known as tire kicking). Well anyway, here are the photos;
Time for our October planning meeting. We will have a ride on October 5th, and then the 19th we will attend the TMRA II Freedom Run that we are coordinating with Pflugerville. Probably another activity on the 12th, if we can get it organized. The meeting was at Robin’s house, and we had Tacos for dinner, and cake for desert. Yum! Sorry, no pictures of the food.
