On Thursday of last week, we welcomed Angie Fulks along with Sydney, Dillon, and Sylvia for a visit. Dean and Angie Fulks are dear friends who now live in Columbus, Ohio where they, along with some other families, have started LifePoint Church. Dean is serving as the Lead Pastor. Angie was in the Memphis area for Spring Break last week.
Unfortunately, we didn't get a photo of Angie and the kids to share on our blog! The primary reason is that Diane and Angie spent basically all day chasing all of our children around the house and the yard, so any photo that I would have posted would be blurry at best.
Seriously, everyone had a great time, and we always enjoys catching up with Angie and the events occuring in the Fulks' life.
We met Dean and Angie a few years back in Ohio. I've already mentioned that Diane and I volunteered with our church's college ministry at Far Hills Baptist Church in Dayton. At that time Dean was the collegiate ministry strategist with the State Convention of Baptists in Ohio in Columbus, Ohio. We spent some time together at a few state collegiate retreats and Dean spoke at several of our own collegiate events. Dean and Angie moved to Memphis in 2002 to be a part of the new Highpoint Church and Dean served on staff at Highpoint for a couple of years. Now he's back in Buckeye Country.
We're already looking forward to our next time that we can share together. We were able to spend some time with the Fulks in Columbus last fall and might possibly see them again on our next trip to Ohio.
