It began on Saturday with a potluck dinner. These are always a lot of fun as we always have a great time of fellowship. Right after that, we had our first service. Our two speakers this year were Dr. Greg Mutsch and Dr. Rick Flanders. Both have been pastors in the past and have been involved in Christian education. Their sermons encouraged us in several areas of Christian living--revival, missions, and giving your worries to God. On Sunday, these men preached for Sunday School and both services.
Q and I had a special time with Dr. Mutsch. We were able to take him to the Cracker Barrel for lunch on Saturday. Dr. Mutsch's current ministry is with A.C.E. ministries, which is where my father-in-law is ministering. He and "Dad Johnson" go way back, as the Lord has allowed them to serve together in a couple other ministries over many years. So the time with him was very sweet. He encouraged us in the Lord with our unknown days ahead. He gave great counsel to us during this transition time. And for that, we are so thankful.
