Greetings from Rochester!  You’ll be seeing me a little bit more often for the next few weeks.  I’m planning to preach at First Lutheran on November 2 and November 9.  In fact, on November 9 I’m bringing quite a few friends along!  Ascension, the congregation I serve in Rochester, has a “Praise Band” that leads worship once a month.  They will be providing the music for our service on November 9th!  They are really looking forward to meeting you and playing for the service.  I’ll be here in La Crescent on the next few Tuesdays as well. 

On November 23’rd my dad is coming to La Crescent to preach!  Whenever I talk to him on the phone he asks how all of you are doing.  A month ago when I was asking pastors to guest preach he asked if he could volunteer to preach.  He served in Big Bend, WI for over 30 years before retiring a few years ago.  Jill Bartels grew up in Big Bend and had my dad as a pastor for many years.

The Christensons and all of you are in my thoughts and prayers often.  If there is anything I can do to help you, please let me know.  And thank you for your continued “graceful patience” toward Pastor Christenson.  He’s getting back into the ministry.  It’s healthy that he will be able to take things a step at a time.  The Lord sees the loving way you are treating your pastor … and He is pleased with you.
