Let’s begin with things on the work front. For those of you that didn’t know I work for iPCS Wireless, Inc. which is an affiliate company of Sprint. We own the Sprint cellular network for much of the area from Iowa to Pennsylvania. My official title is Network Planning Associate. I’m on the Network Planning team which is responsible for helping create web tools that help to plan our network expansion. We keep pretty busy keeping everyone happy. I’ve learned so much about cell phone technology and refined and enhanced my web-service programming and database administration. Lately I’ve had the opportunity to dabble in AJAX for a couple of the projects I’m working on. I work with a couple of great guys at our location too.
I’ve also been pretty busy with things at church. The church just opened the doors of it’s new youth building and also kicked off a new Sunday morning ministry call Splash. I’ve been involved with the Splash ministry running sound. It’s been sort of hard as we haven’t had anyone else really on board to dedicate to helping run sound for Splash, but we’ve been getting by. I’ve also worked on setting up a new online bookstore for the church. As soon as the new website design goes live we should be launching that new store as well. There is always plenty going on at church. I’m also apart of a small group that meets on Thursday nights. We’ve been going through a series by Andy Stanley that has been excellent. We only get together a couple times a month so I’m still getting to know people.
I’ve also been getting together with some people in the area to play card games/board games/party games. I became apart of the group through Meetup.com. I’ve gotten both Vanessa and her brother involved in the group too. Vanessa’s only attended once recently. It was so fun to have her join me! They only meet a couple times a month too. It’s been fun to just meet some new people and play some fun games.
And of course I’ve had the joy of spending lots of time with my bride-to-be. We’ve been having a lot of fun planning all the details of our wedding. We’ve gotten the ceremony location booked at Frederik Meijer Grardens as well as a small reception dinner there to follow. I know many of you are bummed about not begin able to come to the wedding. We’re hopeful that a summer celebration will work for many. We’ve gotten our wedding rings, the wedding dress is on order, and the honeymoon is booked. Doesn’t seem like we have too many more major things to cover. It’s all coming together so nicely.
This month will be quite busy with Christmas parties, and a Christmas vacation out to the great state of Minnesota. I sure hope that we’ll get to see a lot of you while we’re visiting. Well, that’s all for now. Till the next update!
