Picked up yingnan on the way to prestudy, and found out that it had been moved from halsey to jess’ place after getting him. We quickly went over the lesson on david’s encounter with ahimelech the priest. From prestudy we went to westwood park for a counselors’ appreciation lunch/bbq/picnic put on by the youth group parents. On the way to the park we stopped at a gracepoint garage sale.

They were trying to raise money for a mission trip to china this summer. I ended up buying some christian books, some CDs, and a DVD set for the Godfather trilogy.

The BBQ was pretty fun. We had a good time chatting with parents as we ate burgers and salmon. Pastor Eric gave us a short talk, and then they gifted us with cards and gift cards to trader joes.

Rested in the afternoon, and then went to worship practice at 5. Nathan picked out the songs and led the team today. We didn’t really have any melodic instruments, so anna led musically today. I think it went well — it was just a pretty stripped down set.
