Lutheran Synod Assembly in Amarillo, TX

Bob and I went to the Lutheran Synod Assembly in Amarillo, TX this past weekend. Pastor Julio Cruz, his wife Maria and our intern Monica went with us as delegates of the Emanuel Lutheran Church. We flew to Amarillo on Friday. After lunch and a bit of shopping, (Maria forgot to bring a jacket and when we landed, it was 48 degrees!), we drove to the Civic Center for the registration and welcoming part of the assembly. There were close to 300 people from churches from Northern Texas and Northern Louisiana at the assembly. We had dinner at the Civic Center on Friday night. The assembly started bright and early -- 8:00 a.m. on Saturday. There was a worship service, mission moments, Bible studies, and voting on church issues and voting for the officers of the synod. We had classes we could attend in the afternoon. Bob and I took a break to go see Cadillac Ranch. There was a western dinner at the Civic Center on Saturday night. We were told ahead of time to bring our cowboy/cowgirl hats and boots. I have a red cowgirl hat that Zach gave me to wear at my Red Hat outings, so I wore that. This morning, we went for the business part -- more voting -- of the assembly. Then, the five of us left to go see Palo Duro Canyon. This was the best part of the trip!
