I just want to say "hello" from the Chicago area, where I have spend most of the 30 years since I attended (then NABC). For about half that time I've been actively involved in an Evangelical Free church, and don't have the close contact with the NAB conference that I once enjoyed, although I do receive NAB Today and hear bits and pieces. I reflect fondly on my NABC days, and am amazed at God's leading and direction in my life since those days. He is faithful and good. I can only imagine how the little campus in the middle of nowhere looks today. I hope to have the opportunity to get up there one of these days and see for myself. God continue to bless you all.
