Back in for good warm sunshine until Tuesday late and could be a bad storm from the weather report this Monday. I got to work in my yard most of last week and then that storm came in early Friday and Saturday. I thought I would chill to death from that cold wind. My heart goes out to all who have lost everything in the fires and the tornado. I can never remember living in such times as these days.
Everything at Seminole is ongoing, getting ready for the Good Friday service on April 22 at 6:30pm. We will be observing the Lord’s Supper. Easter Services will celebrate the life of Christ. The service times are 8:30, 9:45. and 11:00am. Bring your family and friends to join us. Seminole is a blessed church. Almost every Sunday we have new people joining us.
Danny and Nancy, of Macomb, were in Springfield last Tuesday. They visited with Marise. I’m so sorry I missed seeing them. I was at St. John’s Auxiliary.
Marise and I attended St. John’s Volunteer Day breakfast at 8:00-10:00am Tuesday morning.
Oscar and Gladys Cunningham just returned from a revival in Unionville, MO at the Broadlawn Baptist Church. Unionville is in north Missouri near the Iowa line. Oscar will be preaching the Easter message in Bentonville, AR. They had great visits with dear friends, especially with Mrs. Don Rowland. Some locals will remember them from Camp JOY.
In the home going of Lyle Dickison, I wish to send sympathy to Marybelle, her son Lynn and family and her daughter Linda and family. While I attended the First Baptist Church in Ava, Lyle let me know we were related. His mother was an Alsup and my grandmother was an Alsup. Lyle and Marybelle gave to me a photo they had clipped from the Douglas County Herald of March, 1960. This photo was taken when all 12 of Howard and Lola Proctor children were home three weeks before Howard our father passed on to his home in heaven. This was the first time all our family was together since July 1936. A day to remember. Thank you and God bless you Marybelle.
