We left early this afternoon to head to the Pocono Mountains to attend the Annual Conference of the Bible Fellowship Church. Last year Joe was an Alternate Delegate, but this year he was elected a full Delegate.
We went a different way than we did last year. This time we headed for my sister's house. About 2/3 of the way to her house, we turned off. But knowing where I was going made it so much easier.
The scenery was so beautiful. And it just kept getting better as we went along.
You can tell it was raining. Well, more like drizzling. Very lightly.
After I left my familiar roads I didn't know where I was going. So I was very happy when we at last made it to the hotel where we were staying.
Last year we stayed on the conference grounds and although it was very convenient and very beautiful, it wasn't great for people with disabilities. So this year we are staying at a hotel just 11 minutes away in a room that is handicapped accessible.
The people at this place are beyond friendly and helpful. We got settled in and then found our way over to Pinebrook for the Conference. We parked by the Guest Services building. Look at this beautiful view.
We had dinner and then went to the first meeting. The worship time was wonderful and the speaker, Dr. Sloan, was just great.
Here's Joe at the delegates' table.
The singing was great.
My friend, Donna, saw me sitting there and sat next to me. She introduced me to one of her friends. That lady knows everyone! I saw my former pastor, Pastor Wayne, there and was able to talk to him for a few minutes. Hopefully I'll get to see him more tomorrow.
We also welcomed a new church to the Fellowship. That was nice.
Joe stayed as long as he could and then gave up. We left just about a half hour before the meeting was over to come back to the hotel. I got lost just once driving in the dark. By the time the conference is over, I'll know the way by heart.
