bump into us // Blacksburg, VA

We're back to the first town we ever lived in at the same time... one of the places our hearts call "home"... the always wonderful Blacksburg, VA. It is no secret to anyone how much we love it here & how fortunate we feel to get to spend two weeks here before our move.

As most of you already know from reading our latest newsletter, we are spending these two weeks serving at our sending church, New Life Christian Fellowship, during their kickoff for the year (with students arriving to our dear Virginia Tech!). We are so excited to be of service to them and to get to reconnect with the church!

So far, we've been able to attend a day at the staff retreat and get to see all of the staff again, which was such a delight. Then, yesterday we were able to help with the special service for the Corps of Cadets at Virginia Tech. NLCF hosted the combined "contemporary protestant" church service with two other churches in addition to us, where all three churches were able to be a part of the service as well as share their information with the Cadets that attended. The new Cadets arrived on campus on Saturday for intensive training before classes begin, and on Sunday they were permitted to pick between four different genres of services to attend. Because NLCF is located directly on campus in the student center, it's also a great location for the Cadets in relation to where their buildings are located.

We can't wait for the rest of the student body to arrive on campus and get this move-in week going!

As always, we love to let our ministry team, friends, and blog readers know where we're going to be because we would love to "bump into you!" Please let us know if you're in the area (Blacksburg tends to have a high turnover rate, understandably, so we aren't always aware of who is even here!) and if you'd like to meet up & see us!

Also, we owe a HUGE shout out to our wonderful hosts, Justin and Linda Summers, who graciously offered to have us in their home for two weeks!! Linda was one of Lesley's sweet roommates during college (Lesley got really blessed in that department!) and we are so excited to get to connect with them again while we're here! Thank you so much again, Justin & Linda!
