Life as a Patrick

Joey and I have been in Greenville almost a year. Our first year of marriage went by too quickly. We have had so much fun learning to love and learn something new about each other daily. It is funny how many people told us the first year of marriage is one of the hardest because we have enjoyed every minute of it! We are truely blessed to have one another.

We are now preparing to go to Panama in June on a mission trip. This will be the second year of going to Panama. We will be there for 10 days and our group has tripled in size from last year! Please pray for safety and funding for the group as the group raises support for the trip.

Basketball...A Crazy Season

We had a good time watching the kids play basketball this year. Sam learned the humbleness of losing some games, Anna experienced the high of a Championship, and Kara felt the disappointment of an almost undefeated season coming to an end in the championship game. They are all really into basketball and it has been a great way to learn important life lessons!

Sunday school class

This is the College/Career Sunday school class at Hampton Heights Baptist Church. Joey and I are teaching mostly college aged young adults and are having a blast. This is us on a trip to a Greenville Growl hockey game supporting a fundraiser for a young woman in our church awaiting an intestinal transplant. We had a really good time that night.
