Isaiah 6:8

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

July 3rd

Up early - breakfast was a yogurt at 7, voting at 7:15, and the caucus at 7:30. Today, I gave the invocation - it was the one about the Three Trees that I tried out on you guys last week. After the Caucus was over we headed over to the Convention Center to work on the newspaper again. Today's paper is going to be 4 pages with lots of pictures. We finished by 1:00, had it proofed, and printed by 2:00. I returned to the Assembly Hall to find a wonderful bag from my Iowa Contact, Deb Coltrain. How fun! I gave my new Florida buddy a purple AEA shirt. She was delighted. Scott Austin, a candidate for office spoke and asked us why we teach....His response was very powerful..."I teach...I don't always teach the kids I want to teach...but I teach them just the same." Yeah! That is exactly what I do and why. I am so tired...but satisfied at the moment. Dinner tonight was down from the hotel at a great steak house called East Bully's. I miss Frank!

So glad you are pleased with everything, especially after putting all that work into it. Get some rest now.

Sounds like quite a full agenda! There is a certain satisfaction from that sort of tired when you know you're doing good work! Looking forward to hearing from you soon - have a safe journey home.
