Yesterday was an amazing day! I got up a little earlier than usual, my head abuzz with the thoughts and excitement and yes, even a smidge of fear. I went through my usual routine in the morning, hopped on the bus, went to the transit center and transferred to the next bus and worked with the bus driver to figure out where, exactly, I was supposed to go. They were VERY accommodating!
I’m sure I’ve mentioned that I was asked to write a grant for Overcomers International Ministry. I am glad to do it but as always, when faced with something I have never done before, I didn’t know how to proceed. I tried to read a couple of grant-writing books, including Grant Writing for Dummies but apparently I needed more because it made NO sense lol.
So, after getting off the bus yesterday at the Broadmore Hotel, I walked the direction the bus driver instructed and finally made it to my destination. I was blown away-the view was amazing!!
I was in the first class, “Case for Support” from 9-12. That went very well, and then we had lunch (most of the people went out of the area to eat). Then, at 1:30, we met back at the Penrose Room and started “Effective Grant writing”. Because I’m new to the area, there are a lot of places I’ve never been and so yesterday I played TOURIST as well as STUDENT. What a day! Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity!!
Please enjoy the following montage of the pictures I took yesterday!
