From California...

Arrived in LA yesterday and so far everything has been awesome. Jon Ellis’ mom and step dad picked me up from the airport and are letting me use their Hyundai (more on this later as it is about the coolest car ever - everyone looks at me while I’m driving), I am getting to stay with Corrie and Danielle Paxton (who is Traci Rowe’s brother and sister-in-law and super cool), and getting to hang out with one of my best buds, Jasen… If only Jeff were here (see, I don’t hate you)… I'm still upset Marlow didn't show up too...

So far the The Origins Conference has been amazing. It is nothing less than inspiring and packed with reminders of what God is calling his followers to be about.

So far either Erwin or Alex McManus has taught each main session. It seems they are taking the Core Values of Mosaic (their church here) and sharing each one in some detail. M , vb nioooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo nun njn . – (Pardon the typing as Hannah – who is Corrie and Danielle’s daughter is sitting in my lap and trying to type – an unbiased male , maybe her father, says she is the sweetest little10 month old ever)

I am hearing/learning tons of fresh insight on leadership, life, vision, passion, and mission. Hoping I will be able to grab hold of some of this and mesh it with our life and community back home.

I'm glad you are having fun with my bro, sister in law and niece... I can't wait to hear all about it!

I'm getting ready to walking with your wife!
