I am heading to Little Rock this morning at 6:00am. I am driving with a couple of pastors to go to a training conference sponsored by the district. I am looking forward to meeting some new pastors in our new district. One of the biggest adjustments has been the fact that I do not know anyone. We were in South Texas for most of our ministry and in the same section for 10 years. We became good friends with a lot of people. Now we are starting over. But with new ministry is new opportunities to get to know people. I value the friendships I have already formed.
