Life brings many changes. Matt and Jesika headed home on Sunday after a great week away from classes. It sure is quiet around here. It was a wonderful time and much was experienced and expressed!

My friend Mavis Braun moved into eternity this Sunday afternoon. Her brain tumor progressed very quickly and she quietly quit breathing on Sunday. Her service is on Friday and I have the privilege of speaking. Mavis completed 42 years here. Her life was one of simplicity and authenticity. She was who she was and she has left an amazing legacy. Over the last 20 years she has invested her life into the lives of children…children who needed a place away from home while moms and dads were working. Her faith encompassed every area of her life and in showed in everything she did. She will be sorely missed by many. Thanks Mavis for showing us how to live life well. Your greatest adventure has just begun…eternity!
