I am in the Pittsburgh, PA area this week – home (or at least one of them). I spent Thurs. through Saturday at St. Vincent’s College, Latrobe at the Southwestern PA synod assembly. This was my third assembly in three weeks. (I can say that I am glad not to be churchwide staff who have to attend multiple assemblies every year!) As I expected, I saw more people I knew and met many others. My two forum sessions went well with more people in the 9 a.m. one than the other at 4 p.m. (To be expected...) Here is a picture I took of Bishop Kusserow during a plenary session.
It has been rainy all week. Many days I have continued to walk most days. Here’s an attempt to share a gorgeous cloudy sky between rains taken in Latrobe. We even had a thunder storm one day with thunder and great lightning – reminding me of storms in Garoua Boulai.
I have a few more days in Pittsburgh and then back to Mechanicsburg and on to Texas next Sunday. Travels continue!
