So, last weekend, Alex's wife Rebecca had a late class, but wanted to go with the band to Lexington, TN (about 4 hours from Chattanooga, in between Memphis and Nashville) to hangout and to teach a Bible study for FBC Lexington's D-Now weekend. Once the Sethenater approved it, I decided to tag along, so Becca didn't have to drive by herself. We had a great time talking and laughing in the car, and I was grateful for the time spent with my friend. We're usually surrounded by 4 or 5 boys whenever we hangout, so it's always good to get in some quality Rebecca time!
We got to Lexington about 45 minutes before their first large group session, and found out we were leading and staying with a group of middle school girls. OH SNAP. Rebecca's first d-now, and she's coleading with me, who thinks middle school girls are strange aliens (I kid, I kid!), this could be interesting. I was surprised to see that up on stage with the band stuff, was an extra microphone..I thought I was just riding with Becca and leading Bible study, but I got to sing with the boys too!
It was a great weekend and the students at this church were great. Their youth pastor seems to challenge them so much, which was awesome to see! I laughed so hard at the girls in mine and Becca's house. They were so much fun, and I was super impressed with their spiritual maturity and love for the Lord and one another. I'm usually with high school girls at D-Now's but I was glad for this group.
We left Lexington at like 11pm and drove back to Chattanooga Saturday night. We lost an hour in the time change, and I got home around 3:30am. I was craaaaazy tired at church the next morning, but so glad I went!
