While we were in MS, Raymond had the opportunity to preach 2 times at the Southern Miss Baptist Student Union. The BSU is currently going through the book of John, so Raymond taught from John 8 on Tuesday night. Everything went really well that night and we got to see a lot of old friends as well as talk to several students about seminary life. Thursday lunch was a very informal preaching time since most students have a very small window of time between classes and they are mostly focused on eating their food :) Raymond spoke about the power of the tongue and church membership. He also wooed the students over with a few book give-aways!
In general, our time in MS was wonderful. Abigail was a happy trooper the whole time – she met new people, napped in the car a lot, and went to bed late most nights! We had a great time with my family throughout the week, and my sister, Emily, even came over 1 day earlier than she was planning that we could spend some extra time with her!
Here are a few shots from our time with my family:
