Fall and the Future

                 Today marks the first day of fall that is to arrive this evening around 9:30 and it felt like it this morning! I know the cold weather is coming; this is God’s way of reminding us that the seasons pass and we are on to another aspect of His glorious creation. I am glad I am alive to see it! Wasn’t Sunday’s services special?! I truly enjoyed the time with the Bowman’s as they shared their ministry and calling with us. It seems that you too enjoyed it as the evening attendance was amazing! Over 120 of us were here to hear Roger and Karen share their lives and ministry in Saltillio, Mexico. We gave them a love offering of over $900.00 which was a tribute of your love for God’s people and missions. Thank you for supporting our mission efforts!! A special thank you to Alan and Janice Kirkley for having them in their home and feeding them lunch; the Bowman’s said it was great {I knew it would be} and the Kirkley’s were able to share time with them. Thanks Kirkley’s!

              This next Sunday I will be in Springer, Oklahoma preaching for John Wylie at Springer Baptist Church and then Monday September 29 I will preach in their Pastor’s Conference in Ardmore. I am looking forward to time with John and preaching to the Preachers! I have asked Bro. Chester Webster to fill the pulpit Sunday morning and Daniel Keely Sunday evening. I know they will bring a message from God.

            Also our son Benjamin and his wife Christina will be here this weekend to stay with us a couple of weeks of vacation from Hawaii as they come to start the adoption process of little Grace, our twenty – third grandchild! I can hardly wait to see them and her! Grammy is pretty excited too!

              No doubt God is at work in and through us here. Don’t become weary in well doing….in due time we will reap; if we faint not! Galatians 6:9 Our building plans are continuing as we are waiting on soil samples for our foundation and the finalizing of the structural engineer’s plans. Russ Shipley should begin work on the driveway this week…please pray about your part in the financing of this great project for God.

             ‘Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.’ Hebrews 13:20&21
