... and we're off again!!!

Just one week back from South Carolina and now we are headed to Washington, D.C. We will be taking part in a missions conference at Independent Baptist Church of Clinton, Maryland.

I do not know what my schedule will be like or if I will even have access to the internet this week. Blogging may not happen at all, or I may manage to check in a few times. I really hate to be away from my blog for too long! I lose readers every time.

I hate that!!

For awhile I was averaging 220 readers a day, now I only have about 130 of which, roughly speaking, only about 20 ever leave a comment. The rest are lurkers. I see a few of you regularly on my site meter...I wonder why you never comment? I love comments!

Who are you?
How did you run across my blog?

JM, looks as though there is a worldwide audience...just not talking!!

Certainly they have something to say, too!!

Be blessed and a blessing while you are at the conference!

I'm pretty sure the Ecaudorian is Heather...my neighbor from Costa Rica. Remember her?

Have no fear... I am still here. I will continue to be here when you return! I hope you have a good conference.

I wish I had better news to post, but not this time.

Tricia's health is rapidly declining and will be prepped over the next 6-24 hours for her c-section. Please pray for her health and the baby that is only 24 weeks and 5 days.

Thank you for your prayers Rita. It is AWESOME to see the Body in unity.

I'm the Ecuadorian lurker (Not sure I spelled that right - I'm not really up on all the blogging lingo yet :-) Enjoy DC - that's my home town :-) Wave to all the monuments for me :-) I love to read your blog to keep up with you guys and the Venezuelan news! Keep up the good work. Thanks for all your insight!

How can I contact you privately...would rather not post publicly. Have enjoyed your blog as I've checked it out from time to time. We have mutual friends in Luis and Maria Helena Leon from Venezuela, BTW, they have spoken to us often about you guys. Becky

I don't remember for the life of me how I found you, but I'm glad I did!

Hi! Please delete my first comment. I don't like to put too much personal info on the internet for all to read. I enjoy checking into your blog every now and then. I'm not sure how I found you, but I have been praying for you since your country is going through some rough waters now.

Enjoy all that travel in the civilized world while you can!

American Crusader said...

Good to see that you're still blogging. I've pretty much fallen off the scope lately. My readership has almost completely disappeared which makes sense, since I haven't posted much at all.
Have a great time in DC!

John said...

I am your reader from Panama. I have never posted before. I am sorta like 9 year Henry who never spoke until one night at the family supper table when he said "These mash potatoes are cold". Susan, his older sister, looked at him in amazement and said "Henry, you spoke..what gives?". Henry answered "Well, everything has been alright until now".

MightyMom said...

wow, 200 readers a day?? wow.

I'm doing really good when I cross 80. I lost a lot of readers over last Thanksgiving. folks just didn't like me putting in the sea stories I guess....now I'm averaging around 40...sigh.

I just trust that they (or others) will be back

Rancher said...

Well I have six loyal readers who I would have to shoot to lose. Anyway your gone and I’m back, hope your holidays were as great as mine.

I that's awesome. I am stationed in DC right now with the United States Army...and I am unfortunately one of the lurkers who enjoys reading your posts and doesn't comment very often. You have my apologies.
