Well hello my friends. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. I sure did. It was great to see my little sis who I havent seen for five monthes. We even get to spend more time together later this week when she comes up to GF. We are going to go to a movie, some UND hockey games, and who knows what else? It should be lots of fun. Things with me are pretty uneventful but I am charging ahead as I await a call. I am not strickly tied down to ND…although it would be nice to be closer to mom. I am visiting the congregation in Hazen the second weekend in January. They want me to spend a whole weekend with them which to me means that they must see something in me. I guess I will just have to wait and see. But if not Im going to look into an opening in Waverly Iowa, it not only possibly could be the position for me but also would bring me closer to Wartburg and my seminary friends. Speaking of Wartburg, Im so excited. My Uncle Terry who is very active in ND Farmers Union said he is taking a trip later this winter that will take him pretty close to Dubuque which means I could travel with him and visit all of you. EXCITING Huh!!! I guess thats it for now. Hope you all are doing well and wishing you a blessed 2006!!! GOd bless!!
