Weirdest introduction ever.

Posted on April 21st, 2009 in church by Andy

So I’m at church on Sunday and a friend of the family comes up with her daughter who had come in from out of town. I was introduced as “This is Andy – your grandmother has a crush on him”. Very funny, pretty embarrassing and the most memorable introduction ever.

Homeward bound to the UK!

I heard the sad news that my Uncle passed away just over a week ago so I am heading back to the UK for the funeral just before Easter weekend and it also means that I will be flying back out on Easter Monday. My plan is to fly into Gatwick and fly out of Manchester airport and hopefully get over to Wheelock Heath on Sunday. So my question to you Wheelockites is, Can you put the word out and see if anyone would be able to put me up Sunday night and take me to the airport Monday (13th) morning for 10am? It would be cool to meet up with everyone again at the Sunday service – I’m trying to see if I can get to both services, but I’d definitely be there for the evening service.

Although it’s a sad occasion it will be nice to see the rest of the family and friends back in the uk – will be 4 years and 3 days since we left to come to the states when I fly out.

I’m already eating Turkey leftovers!

Yesterday we had a potluck at church – Kristen and I made green bean casserole – as did about 5 other families in the church. Unfortunately we were watching a film so decided that it would wait just 5 more minutes…..until we checked the oven and the topping was just a little bit browner than normal 😉

Still, it was edible and several people ate some of it, but there was plenty to bring home. There was also tons of turkey left over so we got a bag of turkey meat, so I’m already having turkey sandwiches – before Thanksgiving!

We had a great time – got to know a few more people from church – you really do get to know people the more you put in and join in with various events.  A couple of weeks ago I helped paint the nursery, which was good fun and it looks really nice too. 

We’re going to be pretty busy at church between now and Christmas – there is a concert coming up which sounds like it will be fun and we’ll be attending the rehearsals for the various christmas services too.
