a friend just emailed and asked where i’d be traveling to in the next few months. i knew this was going to be a crazy few months, but i just looked at my calendar and made a list of the places i’ll be between now and mid-may. oof.
Grand Rapids (three times)
New Zealand (2 ½ weeks, but fam is with me)

Marko, that itiinerary makes my head spin! Didn’t you say you weren’t going to be accepting any more travelling speaking
engagements? Yikes, don’t tell me that these are ALL YS related?
I dunno . . . my commiseration is truly with Jeannie for the heavy load she bears in your absence.
Blessings on y’all!!
yeah, the speaking sabbatical (1 year) begins may 1. that’s why my summer is so wonderfully empty.
Crazy! I would never laugh at you, just with you. Have fun in Honolulu!
When are you going to be in St. Louis? What for?!
He will be speaking at Believe a Jr. High event in St. Charles at the family arena. You can get more info and sign-up at http://www.ciy.com and click on Believe. It is the best weekend event for Jr. Highers out there.
Marko, if you need any help with the speaking overload, let me know. I have no idea when the Honolulu or Kauai trips are, but I’m pretty certain I could fit them into my schedule! :-)
yikes! when does that sabbatical start??? sigh…
didn’t read the comments – i see it’s may – yay may!!
The engagements in Honolulu and Kauai sound rough. Blessings on you.
hey – I live in orlando.
what are you doing in orlando?!
mary — i’ll be speaking at JH Believe, and big event for middle school kids put on by christ in youth. see: http://www.ciy.com/believe/default2.html
when you go to kauai, you have to track down jojo’s (http://travelchannel.igougo.com/planning/journalEntryDining.asp?JournalID=37374&EntryID=22484&n=Jo+Jo's+Shave+Ice).
it was my family’s favorite place to go for shave ice. and when you live in hawaii, you have a lot of shave ice. this is the best. so worth it.
I will see you in Anderson. We will have 15 with us.
Marko, I bet that Jeannie is eager for May 1st’s sabattical! In the meantime, hang in there. At least you get gobs of frequent flyer miles!
markO, what are you doing in hawaii [honolulu & kauai]?
i started in ministry there, and there really aren’t THAT many churches… who are you working with and what are you up to with them?
I see that you are coming to GA a couple of times. Are these speaking events? If so, are they an open or closed event?
