A crew of wonderfully creative and talented folks began arriving in Amarillo this week to get the civic center ready for our annual meeting. When I arrived Thursday, more than 20 people were building and painting sets, unloading trucks, and scurrying here and there to execute the many detailed plans.
Dennis Parrish is the ringmaster for this behind-the-scenes circus. It’s similar each year, with the look and theme changing and processes being tweaked. It’s hard work, but it’s also fun.
I want to say a special note of thanks to David Isbell, who heads up the logistics and execution of actually getting all the stuff to the annual meeting site each year. People on the stage each year may not know about David’s tireless work, but without him much of what happens would not be possible. This year, David is still at his post getting things done despite serious illness in his extended family. Please pray for David’s family and say a word of thanks to our Father for servants like David Isbell. He’s one of your BGCT employees, and he’s a good one.
I look forward to seeing you in Amarillo. If you haven’t made plans, there’s still time. Come and be a part of this missions celebration and impact the future of God’s work through Texas Baptists. Visit the website for details.
