What a great time! Abbey's parents were amazing hosts. Thanks Roger and Lisa!
Kate Donahoo and Sarah Wilkins provided the wedding music. I captured a bit of their practicing...
More photos to come!
|Natalie can't wait!|
|Poor Isaiah was having a hard time getting down the communion bread!|
work. or should I say: work?
|Mathu had a great week at Boosterthon|
|Team of volunteers at High Point Christian|
|The got color too!|
Christian McConnon also had a questionable work week. NCS, his employer, sent him off for five days in Germany.
|Did Christian clone himself and then climb a golden sphere?|
I really can't say anything - I got to 14th Street early and joined the line dancing group...I guess my work could be called into question at times as well!!!

I had the privilege of joining Fellows Alum, Natalie Bayer and Fellows friend Ally Hall at the ABC Gourmet Luncheon.
|This was the best table...|
I'm serious about that. I was surrounded by Natalie's coworkers that wept the whole time out of love for the kids they serve. I'm not telling ABC what to do - but if they spread these ladies around, they would have raised more bucks!
Their tears doubled my donation!
Natalie also made their annual report!
ROUND TABLE at the John and Mary Spangler.
|Bryan and Andrew and hors d'oerves|
It was so fun to be with Tim's parents Monday. Mary joined us for worship, announcements and prayer. She is so cool.
LEADER LUNCH with Steve Lineberger
|Steve and the gang|
Steve bought enough pizza for each of us to have our own pie! The crew at Winston-Starts was pumped! We had a special guest come in - friend of the Fellows Lauren Miller, co-owner of Up Dog Kombucha.
Steve shared his story and gave us some amazing insights from his life. He is a repeat performer for the Fellows - but this is the first year that we have actually been able to have a leader lunch with him at his office. So cool. If you haven't checked out Winston-Starts yet - you've got to.
We started our service action projects this week. Some Fellows are working with Terrance Hawkins at LIT City. Other Fellows are working with Bill McClain at GIDE. Still others are working with Senior Services.
This is the Fellows' chance to do a deep dive in service. I can't wait to see what comes of it.

We interviewed our first Fellows candidate for 2019-20. We shall see!
We had class inside (outside it was pouring rain). We said good-bye to our Fellows candidate. We ate some chips and salsa. Bryan and I talked about life. A good day.
|Anna Rose and Topanga were Peanut M & M's|
|David ate lunch with his shades on|
|We tried to make funnel cake|
|Anna Rose did horse yoga|
|What do you think about that?|
Then it was off to Powatan, Virginia to Abbey's wedding
