Mobile, AL-Mardi Gras

Judd and I had the pleasure of joining our friends Tripp, Candice, Mrs. Carolyn (Nana) and Mr. Ralph in Mobile for Mardi Gras this year. We truly had a blast. Candice was such an amazing hostess! Thanks so much for letting us stay with you!
Tripp was the First Knight at Mardi Gras a few years ago. The year that he was on the court was our first time down to Mobile for the Mardi Gras celebration. It was so much fun to watch coronation and the parades. We have gone back every year since Tripp was on the court, except last year because we were in Philadelphia. We love Tripp and his family so much! We are so grateful that they invited us down again!
The pictures below are of us watching the Crewe of Columbus Parade, eating at the local hot spot--The Dew Drop, watching the Mystics of Time Parade (MOT), and preparing to go to the MOT Ball after watching the parade from the Athelstan Club. Yay for Mardi Gras!!! Yay for being back in the south!!!! Even bigger yay for such great friends!!!

Amy in Africa

A very close friend of mine who is about to graduate from pharmacy school at Auburn University, Amy Pennington, is on a medical mission trip to Ghana, Africa. She is a true steward of Christ. I know she will bring so much to the people there. She is keeping a blog of her experiences. Please follow Amy as she touches and helps to save the lives of the people in Ghana. She is including prayer requests in her blog. It would be lovely if we could all join together in prayer for Amy, the other missionaries, and for the people they are attempting to reach everyday.
