Thursday 1997 - [South Africa]

Friday 1998 - [Kentucky to Alabama]  Left for Montgomery about 9:30 with Ken and _________ Comm [?] and Mary Virginia.  He is an insurance adjuster and she is a High School teacher and sings in MV's choir.  We stayed at Suites Plus.  The church has about 7M [7000] members and 4500 attend Church on Sunday.  They have these seminars twice a year on church growth.

1998 We went to Montgomery, AL to Frazer Memorial UMC for their semi-annual church training "Every Member in Ministry". The couple, although not sure it's significant, are Ken and Janelle Conn. Group from Somerset UMC went and had cancellation so Dad went along with us as I recall.

From Dad: Catherine, on that Hana trip summary, it looks like an extra digit in the # of bridges. No big deal, but people might think that I couldn't really count. [Changed post from 507 to 50+ on 2/24/10]
