God's Wondorous Ways

All last week was tough on me. My Dad is in the hospital recovering from foot surgery and my Mom is home with Lukemia not doing so good. I am privileged to take care of them and do for them when they can't do for themselves. Please keep them in your prayers. They need extra grace right now.

We sang to Dad on Saturday in the hospital then we went and sang to my Uncle John at his place. It was a joy to see them both perk up and enjoy the goodness of God through music and fellowship. We all got some hugs and handshakes in as well.



We were up at 5am and off by 7am we traveled to San Marcus and visited Open Door Baptist Church with Pastor Evans and Mrs. Evans. They had a pretty building and a friendly church family. We enjoyed the congregations singing and the pianist was great he was playing the piano in a brace from having suffered a bad fall breaking his back and neck. Wow that is great that God spared his young life and he is giving God the glory through playing the piano. That alone encouraged my heart!



Between services we stayed in their mission house. We didn't realize that was available and it proved to be a huge blessing to be able to really get some rest between services. It was decorated nice and built well also. Somebody did a great job!

The church was blessed with the singing and preaching we were blessed with God's presence and the sweet fellowship with God's people.
