Morning View of River, St. Paul, MN
This morning both Matt Harrison and I are in St. Paul, MN for an Elders' Retreat sponsored by Bethlehem Lutheran Church of St. Paul, MN. The retreat itself is held on the campus of Concordia University, St. Paul. About 150 to 170 men are in attendance. Right now the St. Paul Winter Carnival is taking place, hence the decorated trees in the photo above. It is mighty cold up here, especially when packed and dressed for the Caribbean. Both Matt and I presented last night. This morning there are four more hours of presentation. The last presentation is going to be about what transpired last week in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. By late afternoon, we should be on an airplane headed to Miami. Tomorrow morning, we should arrive in the Dominican Republic, and by tomorrow afternoon Jacmel, Haiti. A Mercy Medical Team should be on its way to Haiti now.
