Today the church at Delta ordained Bro. Ray Bellew to be an Elder. It is such a blessing for us because we have doubled our Elder population. It has been 30 years since they last ordained here. Everything went very smoothly. We had a very good meeting. It was also church dinner day and many people stayed for dinner. Our new building is coming along nicely. It is trussed and sheeted, now for the windows and doors. The little kids have really been enjoying playing baseball in there with the tennis rackets. That will definately have to stop once the windows go in. Looks like by this time next year we will be in the new building, Lord willing.
The brethern have had so much unity lately. That feels so good. To know that the brethern truly love and care for one another. It was our intent to ordain two more elders, but neither of them felt that this was their time. But hopefully next time it will be easier. We are so blessed that things went so well this time. I will post pictures of the new building soon.
In other news....I curled Amy's red hair for church this morning. She looked a lot like Shirley Temple until she got her face dirty playing in the dirt pile. Oh well. Tom boys make the best girls I've always heard. Randy & Sheri N. & kids came by after church and we had a very good visit. We sure do enjoy them. That little Melanie is a doll.
