PFYC 2020 And Odie Update

Special Update About PFYC 2020

This is Odie, last Saturday I shared a post about the upcoming PFYC 2020.  You can find it by clicking here. Yesterday I received a text message update about the conference. I wanted to pass it on to you. Please share this message word others too.  

After the PFYC update, I will have more below.

Official Statement from PFYC Board of Directors concerning PFYC 2020:

"The status of the coronavirus (COVID-19) is changing daily and our staff is listening carefully to ongoing guidance and updates from state and federal agencies. We have been in contact with Sevier County, TN City Manager and the Governor of Tennessee - Bill Lee both of which have assured us that we are safe to continue with our event. There are no plans to limit sizes of gatherings. In light of the ongoing attention given to the virus, we are making this public statement to assure you that we are taking this situation seriously and that the health and safety of attendees remains our top priority.

First, all events and activities remain as scheduled. As of today, there are no directives from the CDC or state authorities to avoid domestic travel or limit large groups. It is important to note, however, that the situation is fluid and we will provide updates as dictated by officials. In short, we are having PFYC unless the LeConte Center or TN State/ local authorities require us to cancel. It would be a mistake to cancel 23 days out when this may be under control in a week or so.

We are grateful for your confidence in us and reiterate we are taking the situation serious.  If there is a mandatory cancelation or the board deems it necessary, we will be sure to get the message out ASAP! Thank you for joining with us to take steps to keep our folks safe. Let’s be in prayer for the Lord's will to be done".

Rev. David J. Webb

Odie Update

Hey Friends,

I am checking in from Ohio. Dad asked me to write a post for you. My parents are doing good. It is hard to keep track of them because of the seventeen hour time difference from their location and mine. I am grateful for the technology that allows us to chat daily. We can at least stay somewhat connected across the world.

Several of my friends have text or called to make sure that I am surviving at home. I appreciate everyone being concerned about my well being! I am glad to report that I am making it just fine. 

I know that many people near me are available if I need anything. I am so thankful for my family and friends that help me get where I need to go. It has been really good to attend church at Dryden Road this week.     

Something that is now available in my area is grocery delivery from Walmart. I have now utilized the service twice. It is very convenient for me to get my groceries this way. I push my laundry cart outside. The delivery guy loads my bags in the cart. Then I take them inside. Now my cabinets and fridge are stocked. Have you used grocery delivery from Walmart? If you have not used grocery pickup or delivery click here. You can save $10 on your first order by using my link.

One thing I enjoy about being home is getting salsa and food from Alcapulco. Monday I got a call from Mamaw telling me she wanted Alcapulco. Mamaw and Papaw said they were coming to get me for lunch and I definitely did not try to change their minds.😀 We had a fabulous lunch! 

Yesterday I was able to spend a few hours with my Mom 's parents. I always have a blast with Gran and Papaw. There was lots of laughter, food, and, as usual, ice cream was involved in our fun times together. Thank you, Gran and Papaw, for spending part of your day with me. Soon It was time for them to head home. 

Well, that is a quick update from Ohio. Thank you for reading.
