Rachelle and I completed the eight hour drive to San Antonio, arriving around 6:30 p.m. Central Time. We are staying at the Marriott Rivercenter Hotel in downtown San Antonio, right across the street from the convention center where the Southern Baptist Convention will be held beginning Tuesday morning.
Tonight we had dinner on the Riverwalk with Ben Cole and Art Rogers. While we were eating a host of Southern Baptists stopped to say hello. It was quite easy to pick out the Southern Baptists among the throng of people walking the Riverwalk, including thousands who are here for the NBA Finals between San Antonio and Cleveland. Game two of the best of seven series is Sunday night here in San Antonio.
This morning, Sunday, June 10, Rachelle and I plan to attend the worship services at Castle Hills Baptist Church in north San Antonio. The Pastor's Conference begins Sunday night at 6:00 p.m. Immediately after the Pastor's Conference Rachelle and I will be in the lobby of the Marriott Rivercenter and anyone who reads this blog and happens to be in San Antonio is welcome to come to the lobby for a time of fellowship. Lord willing we plan on possibly hosting an informal prayer meeting in one of the suites late Sunday night, but regardless, if you are reading this we would love for you to come to the Marriot Rivercenter lobby around 9:00 to 9:30 p.m. Sunday and meet some very special people who will be with us.
I plan on blogging about tomorrow's events early Monday morning. There are already a huge number of people in downtown San Antonio, but it is hard for me to tell if it is because of the basketball game or the Southern Baptist Convention. Either way, it is an exciting time to be in San Antonio.
In His Grace,
