Bishop Hits Ground Running After Sabbatical

And doesn’t even stop to put on shoes….

Members of the JAFC Staff tried to keep up with Bishop Jones after he returned from Sabbatical in May, but they were left in the dust. All they could find was this footprint left somewhere between Ohio, North Carolina and Washington DC!

Back to the Business of the Lord, the Bishop made trips to North Carolina to ordain Chaplain Jesus Dominguez to the priesthood then made the road to Ohio for the same with Chaplain Lawrence McElrath.

Next it was off to Washington, D.C. for meetings with top level members of Hidden Heros and meetings with NCMAF and AFL.

Take a breath….The Bishop has scheduled video conference training sessions with newly ordained chaplains this weekend, then will prep for Convocation training presentations, and pack and drive to Wisconsin to ordain another chaplain. Then its off to Wheaton Illinois for the Commissioned Lay Chaplains Academy, and our 2017 Training Symposium and Convocation.

All I can do as the Bishop’s Chaplain is …take a deep breath and mumble, “Its gonna be a long, LONG year.”
