New Word: Quadricentennial

We just landed on the shores of Virginia Beach this evening... so to speak. We're here for a celebration to commemorate the 400-year anniversary of the first settlers arriving here on April 26, 1607. Those first people humbly spent 3 days in prayer and fasting aboard their ship anchored in Chesapeake Bay before going ashore. They built a wooden cross, and their first order of business on the beach was to plant it and pray. On Sunday morning we will join with countless others to once again plant crosses on that beach. Lou will be speaking tomorrow morning along with many of our other friends throughout the weekend.

This is my first time to Virginia Beach. It's beautiful here. I would like to get over to Jamestown before we leave.
