Debra and I take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks to Londa Richardson, Jill Mandrell, Michelle Brooks-Young and Kim Batson for all of their hard work and preparation for the Pastor’s wife/Lady pastors retreat held this last weekend in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It was a weekend of good food and good fellowship.

We did all we could to spoil the pastor’s wives and the lady pastors in attendance. The weekend was filled with shopping, eating, games and a special party and a special dinner at the Apple Barn Farmhouse restaurant. Imagine the fun as we awoke on Sunday to a fresh-fallen snow and a morning devotion in a beautiful mountain-side chapel with a panoramic view of the Great Smokey Mountains.

We had to force the ladies to go home.
