It is hard to believe that another school year has come and gone.

Kelly and DeAnn Thompson, Kailey and Kyle went to Illinois last weekend to see Kelly’s folks.

Norma Cross and I went to Claremore, Oklahoma Sunday afternoon. We went to watch our great niece graduate Monday night from Claremore High School. We spent time with Sue Johnson and Georgia Sanders and our brother, Pete Jenkins and Sandra came over from Fayetteville, Arkansas. Georgia got sick Tuesday morning and had to spend the night in the hospital. She got to come home after her blood pressure came down.

I was sorry to hear about Audrey Hadeen passing away last week and her husband passed away the next week.

Kinsey Thompson played ball in the rain last week. It was kinda hard to find a time to play last week when it wasn’t raining.

Thursday Ervin and Lodean Schultz, Sue Brown and Dianne Brown drove to Ava to do some shopping and ate Chinese.

One day Ervin built Sue some laying nests for her chickens. They sure look nice.

Saturday Sue went to Silver Dollar City with her son and family, Rod, Lisa and Kayli and a friend of Kayli’s, Lizzie Fleming. They had a great time. They were celebrating Sue’s birthday, Number 72. They also saw Lisa’s sister and husband, Dottie and Wayne Cantrell down there. They all had a nice visit with them.

Pastor David Welsh used Revelations chapter 2 and other scriptures for his sermon on repent. There were 78 in attendance at service Sunday. We were glad to see some back after being out with sickness. Both Larry and Lynn Clayton are down at this time.

Susie Adams sang a beautiful song for service.

We all gathered in the dining hall for lunch after service. The men cooked hamburgers and hot dogs. It was our regular birthday and anniversary dinner.

Pastor David used Matthew 23 and other scriptures for evening service.

II Peter 3:9, “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
