Monday – Get up early … Work on newsletter … Work on powerpoint presentation … Work on blog … Teaching evening much like Thursday … Answer questions and sell literature … Pack up all equipment and books and load them in vehicle … Get to guest home about 10:30 pm … Get to sleep about 11-12 pm.

 Tuesday – Get up early for travel.

 This is fairly typical for all the speakers at AOI. I am not complaining mind you … I love what God has called us to do. I do have to admit though, we do get weary after a while on the road. As we get older, it takes a little longer for our energy level to bounce back day after day. Yet, the Lord keeps providing the strength and energy and opportunities for us to continue on in this ministry.
