From RURAL Mississippi

Greetings from the rural countryside outside of Florence, Mississippi - near Jackson - where the Twin Lakes Fellowship Conference is about to get underway. I, and my luggage, safely arrived yesterday and as of last night, Banner of Truth is once again set up, on location, here at the Twin Lakes Conference Center. It's been good already to see a number of guys I've gotten to know through my travels to previous conferences and seminaries, besides meet some new students here at RTS-Jackson and a number of other pastors from primarily the southeast, but several from far and wide. Interestingly enough, Tim Challies and I have finally met and even ended up bunking together. For "thoughout the conference" blogging on what goes on here, I'll defer you to Tim's site (www.challies.com). He's all set up here next to me and ready to bring you the details of what happens throughout the next couple of days. As for Banner, those back on the home front are getting your orders processed and shipped as fast as they can. It sure is obvious to us that you received the Spring mailer that went out last week. If you didn't, let me know (steve@banneroftruth.org); I'll send you one right away and get you on the mailing list for future announcements. For now, it's back to work ....
