Dec. 7-10: Lakeland, FL to visit Bro. Handfield. His wife passed away unexpectedly. Please keep him in your prayers. Sis Handfield will be greatly missed. We appreciated her faithfulness to God and love for her church family.
Dec. 11: Harrisburg, Rhoda and I went to the Home Mission Christmas banquet. What a great update and meal. Each pastor shared how there had been new people in church and how someone had been saved in each church. This is truly the reason for the season!
