On Wednesday, we were given the gift of listening to Chris Perry share his story with us. Chris is a mentor and leader, as well as an entrepreneur and a wildly interesting person to get to know. While he is used to sharing his story, his Wednesday leader lunch talk was uniquely crafted for our group. He even offered to give a copy of David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell to anyone who came and asked for it! Thank you for the time and thought put into this lunch, Chris!

|This is what the menu looks like at Forsyth County Club when the fellows come for lunch. |
Thank you Chris and FCC for taking such good care of us!
|Sean got teased a bit for ordering two entrees, |
but he looks pretty happy with his decision.
|Will, Campbell, and Christina finding some free time to shoot hoops.|
|As if we didn't already know Christina had the most school pride... As an Easter gift from her mom, she now has an official |
Wheaton College license plate frame to prove it! Nice Easter dress, Christina ;)
Fellows Fun Fact (FFF): Christina's work takes her to sites all across the state of North Carolina!
She has probably raked up the most miles of all the fellows this year.
We are up to five Fellows for next year, with the addition of Tucker Bartholomew, an upcoming Wake Forest Graduate.
I just learned this morning that the invitation we extended to Antonius Gunawan on April 3 never reached him! Good Lord. Please pray that the technology demons don't get there way and Antonius accepts. We want this guy!
This week we have two more interviews and another interview the following week. We may try to squeeze in one more before we head out of town for our Mission Trip.
Keep praying y'all.
We are about $1,000 away from reaching out Israel Goal, and for our overall 2017 budget (our fiscal year ends July 31) we are about $12k away.
