Painted hands around Granny

Christmas at Granny and Pappy's was fun this year. There are 10 grandchildren with Caleb the youngest. Caleb loves anything military. Guns, tanks, etc. All the other kids asked for clothes or good smelling stuff, but not Caleb. Thank the Lord we had one person that wanted things that were still fun to watch them open. After they finially got the gun put together Caleb stood in the middle of the room with 18 people around him and bullets went flying. It was so funny. Earlier Chad took all the cousins bowling. They had such a good time.

The next day we went to my Mama and Daddy's house. My brother and sister both came with their families. We had such a good time. It was so good just to sit around and visit. I thank the Lord that Chad and I were raised in Christian homes.

We spent a few days in the mountains.

We had such a good time the last few days. We have been in the Smokey Mountains. We love coming here. I'm so glad the scheduling worked out so we could come away a few days to this wonderful place that holds so many memories for our family.

Morning Star Baptist Church Easley, South Carolina

Sunday afternoon we traveled for over three hours to Morning Star Baptist Church in Easley, South Carolina for the night service. The pastor is Bro. David Ellenberg. What a wonderful welcome. This church made us feel like home folk. We enjoyed the services and fellowship with them. As the service was ending the pastor got us and said God was dealing with him about taking us on for support. So they voted right then, and we are now their newest missionary family. Wow, What a mighty God we serve.

Community Baptist Church Lenoir City, Tennessee

Sunday morning, Dec. 7th, we were at Community Baptist Church in Lenoir City, Tennessee. The pastor is Bro. Mark Smith. Bro. Mark and his family have been missionaries to the country of Russia, and now for the last six years at Community Baptist. We enjoyed so much the fellowship with this dear couple. They know exactly what our live has been like over the last six months. Being on the road, experiencing the deputation trail. What wonderful memories God has given to us.
