Here we are!  The rain is back, school is back, the Cummings family is back and so is Barefoot Students!  Stacie and I are so happy to be back in Port Angeles with our First Baptist family.  We thoroughly enjoyed our time away and are back ready for a great year.  

Our time away gave Stacie and I time to gain better perspective into our roles in ministry.  To give you a quick snapshot of our time away, we spent much of our sabbatical traveling and spending as much time together as a family as possible.  We drove around 7,200 miles, visited 11 states, bought way too many bags of ice, and made more family memories than we can count.  

We’re still settling back into the swing of things, but we’re really excited to jump back into mission with each of you.  A big thanks goes out to all of you who filled in the gap while we were gone; it truly gave us a chance to be away and take full advantage of this time.  God is so good and has a greater plan for this church than we could ever imagine.  

Let’s make sure we spend more time with God seeking out that plan and discovering greatness.
