It was a lovely day to worship, and to bring all our petitions to the Lord. The weather is more like summer, with a splash of rain to make things green. We had so many to mention, to thank Him for the good things we enjoy, and the things He continues to bless us with.
We were blessed to have Brother Raymond and Sister Naida with us Sunday, in the absence of our pastor. Raymond spoke from John 4:19-26, we must worship the Lord in spirit and truth. Raymond and Naida also sang for us, two beautiful songs.
There will be a working/cleanup day at Camp Piland, Saturday, beginning about 9 a.m. to spruce up camp, inside and out, before camp begins. They would certainly appreciate any help you can give.
We hear by way of the grapevine that Sister Mae is a little better, hope this continues to hold out.
Brother Martin has not been doing too well, but he thinks he is a little better. His company has been Wes and Kim, Ronda Soto and Albert Elliott.
Jadon Lansdown spent a weekend with Ronnie and Pat Lansdown, recently. Myrl Cox is not in very good health, at this time. Her children take good care of her, from errands, grocery shopping and lawn care. I’m sure she appreciates it a lot.
Harold Hutchison just returned from two weeks at Cox South, following triple by-pass and valve replacement. He is doing very well, trying to walk as much as they want him to and getting stronger.
