Fargo to MN… then MI, NE and CA

In the next two months I’ll be doing four parenting workshops in four different states. It all starts this weekend in the gigantic metropolis… Fergus Falls, MN.

I love small towns. Tomorrow I’ll get a good taste of small town America. I fly into Fargo, ND, then hop in my rental car and drive to Fergus Falls, MN. The youth pastor told me today, “The weather’s going to be great. We’re expecting 10 to 20 degrees!”

These aren’t comforting words to a California boy!

We Californians start panicking when we hear it’s going to freeze overnight. “Oh man! Did you hear it’s gonna be down to 30 degrees tonight? I’ve gotta go outside and cover my hibiscus bushes so they don’t die!”

Truth be told, I really don’t mind the cold. Besides, I’m all excited about speaking to parents this weekend. I preach in the morning services over at Fergus Falls First Church of the Nazarene, and then I teach my Parenting the Texting Generation workshop that night from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. If you’re in driving distance, you should come out and join us!

The weeks to follow I’ll be in several more U.S. states preaching and doing the same workshop:

March 25, 2012 (Wyandotte, MI)
Preach, Parent Workshop, First Baptist Church

April 1, 2012 (Ainsworth, NE)
Preach, Parent Workshop, Ainsworth Evangelical Free Church

April 22, 2012 (Fresno, CA)
Preach, Parent Workshop, First Presbyterian Church of Fresno

    We stayed in Fergus Falls in the summer…very nice place…it’s ‘anytown USA’!

  2. It’s not a good day to be flying on United Airlines. Today is the day that United Airlines and Continental officially merge their computer systems. I told my wife last night, “This is going to be like United’s Y2K!” Sure enough, it was chaos in the ticketing area this morning. Computer systems down, people panicking. Luckily I printed my boarding pass yesterday and am just carrying on luggage.

    Regardless, flights are leaving about 60 to 90 minutes late. I’m not too worried, I have a 2 hour layover in Denver (a layover that is rapidly shrinking, currently looking like about a 30 minute layover). Although that flight will probably be late too.

    Pray that I get there!!!
