Hey, friends:

Jim and I are back from visiting our daughter Molleigh during her semester abroad in Brazil. While it was a lovely visit, it was also wonderful to know that the class was being marvelously managed by former Presidents Jim and Julee Embrey, who graciously agreed to step back into their old positions. I also need to especially thank Karen Campbell who stepped up last week and did the majority of organization for the Minute To Win It Tournament and Pot Luck Social in my absence. Although Molleigh’s Portuguese is developing nicely, the only two words I learned were "obrigada" and "caipivodka." The first means "thank you" when spoken by a woman (a man says "obrigado") and the second was my favorite Brazilian beverage. So, obrigada to Jim, Julee, Karen and the rest of the Social Committee for making everything look seamless even when Jim and I weren’t there to do our part.

One thing to note this week is that BASE (Boston Avenue Service Experience) Camp is this Sunday, April 10th. Jim Embrey has provided a list of suggestions for those people participating in our Burroughs Elementary mission, including wearing your work clothes and bringing outdoor work gloves, hats, boots and other outdoor attire with you to church so you’ll be ready to roll after the 11:00 service.

Angela Hooper will be back this Sunday for the second of her lessons on how to pray. I heard the first lesson was terrific (missed it due to food poisoning), so I’m looking forward to hearing her second lesson.

Hope you have a great week and remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.

See you Sunday.
