Holidays with Nana

We enjoyed the weekend. We got to spend the 25th with Nana (my mother-in-law). She is still up and around, but not functioning too well memory-wise. The crowd was small, as more and more have their own family obligations, or have moved off, and it is hard to get them together.

We have learned that our 7th grandchild (Leah's) is to be a girl, which makes us very happy - not that we would not have been equally happy with a boy.

Primitive Baptist ordinations December 2006

I was blessed to be in two ordinations at Ft. Smith church Saturday : Bro. Steve Woods as elder and Bro. David Owens as deacon. There was a large crowd Saturday morning, and the services were impressive. Elder James Isaacs did the questioning of Bro. Steve, and it was THOROUGH, but he answered the questions ably. We now have seven elders within the Salem Association - all sound and content to be plain, unadorned Primitive Baptists.

Primitive Baptist Churches in central Alabama

This past weekend I was with Beulah, Ebenezer, Coosa River and Vestavia churches in central Alabama. I enjoyed the visit very much, and stayed with my dear friend Elder Louis Culver. He is a fine, hospitable gentleman, and his wife, Sister Betty, treats her guests in a wonderful way. The services were spiritual, and I felt to be at home.
