* * *What a gracious and hospitable church our Charlotte venue turned out to be. Myers Park Baptist Church not only has a large beautiful campus nestled in a very old and impressive residential community, but the staff also have hearts as big as the physical presence of the buildings. We are very grateful for their provision. Again, the attendees were a wonderful mix of families from near and far. A missionary family that served in East Africa and now lives nearby were the first to arrive. It was fun to see so many diploma families in attendance. Most memorable were two young men. One, a young teen, who was full of probing questions that included if he could come and work or volunteer with our company. Another who talked so much, engaging with us in all kinds of discussion, his mother thought it necessary to apologize. I want to go on record to say that I love these kinds of kids. They are the future leaders that give me hope. In my experience, the engaging nature of such a character (when carefully directed) can produce a courageous godly leader that can have great influence. I am thrilled to have them getting a classical Christian education with us. Off to Atlanta for a restful Sunday with my sister and her family. We meet next on the north side of Atlanta, Monday night. - Marlin (Veritas Press Founder, Marlin Detweiler) ______________________ In order to get the word out about our new VPSA Local Communities, Founders, Marlin and Laurie Detweiler - along with their son Brandon - are hosting Family Game Night events in 13 cities nationwide over 16 days.
