To boldly go where Melissa has never gone before

David and I had the opportunity to get away this weekend to go explore Minnesota. I had never been before and David hadn't been there since he was a kid. We had a chance to catch up with our good friends from college, Dan and Angie Leverence, who gave us a very thorough tour of the Minneapolis/St. Paul area of Minnesota. Here you can see us all in front of the Minnehaha falls (I don't really know if that's the way it's spelled, but I was pretty sure it wasn't "mini ha-ha").



















We also had the chance to visit Five Oaks Community Church in Woodbury, Minnesota (just east of St. Paul). We heard they had just hired a new Worship director and we decided to go check him out. He did an awesome job and now I'm pretty sure I've got a thing for Five Oaks' new worship leader....


Get it?

    Minne-SOH-ta... Eh?? Wow, awesome news guys! Gotta say I'm a bit jealous you'll get to see so much of Dan and Angie, what a blessing!

    Jim and Jaena said...

    Yea! So happy for you guys! Looks like a happenin' place. They don't have your pic on their website yet...what's the deal? :)

    It'll probably be there soon. David starts on Thursday...

    Maybe I'm just a little slow on the news, but . . .

    HOLY FAST TRANSITION BATMAN!

    Will you be singing "We bring the Sacks of Rice on Trays?"

    Robin,

    I told them that I just couldn't take the job if they wouldn't allow the "Robinizing" of certain unusable and out of date choruses. I'll give you a call when we cut our first "robinized" album. :)

    You're too good to me.

    How about "Oh Victory in Jesus, My Savior Forever, He Socked me and He Bopped Me. . ."

    Admit it, you miss me making you laugh from the second row!

    Congrats on the new job! When is the big move?

    TheGaffords said...

    That's a good question, Michelle! It all depends on when we can sell the house and find a new one. David will be coming and going a lot in the mean time. We've had a bit of action on the house in the last two days and I'm planning on an open house Sunday afternoon, so pray hard!

    congrats man.
    is that a fender jag in the background?
    looks like you're in good hands.
