Yours in Christ,
Is it September already? With the changing weather folks in the nursing homes are already worrying about another future lockdown coming this winter. How we pray that does not happen!

But there is good News! I can now enter Mitchell Care Center to visit residents. I cannot do group Bible Studies but I can visit individually. Praise the Lord!
If you were looking out our back window a couple of weeks ago you would have seen a sight like this.
We have never gotten more than a dozen peaches from the tree in the past. This year several boxes were harvested with several people in our church canning and freezing them. What a treat the Lord gave us!
What an amazing few months we have just lived through, so many sudden changes to adjust to. Changes that seem to have end of the church age significance. With the pandemic causing the closure of our church and with the pastor retiring and moving to Colorado our church has faced some very real challenges and changes. Read more
