Memorial and Missions

We were so blessed by the Ashe County Honor Guard as they paid honor to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

 Below is a pic of the 22 member mission team that worked at the Winston Ronald McDonald house.

Outer Banks and Band of Brothers

What a great time we had at the Outer Banks. Just a couple of days but it was oh so relaxing..

Thursday, I went back to the VA to get the word that the doc just can't do anything about my knee right now, Final verdict...Deal with it... OK, I will
Thursday night, our Band of Brothers group met for some fun adventure firing many different weapons and really noting in particular. We grilled some meat and talked about our stories just a bit as we had invited another man to join us...Good times indeed!!!!

Spruce Pine Update

So in this whirlwind of a story, the state has decided not to take the house, but there are so many questions. There are issues with the septic tank so it seemed that the state we think is a little confused. TC talked to our contact person and he is suppose to talk to his supervisor and contact us if that is necessary. This has become so aggravating, I wished it would come to an end either way, but for sure we do not want to leave ourselves in a bad place for the future. We have about decided to try and fight this thing so that the State would have to purchase our house. We will see. I am personally very torn about the issue. I guess I would be OK either way....

Pictures are the best words

We have had a couple hard days at the Fire Department. Here is one of our trucks backing in from a wreck call...
Below are pictures from our Spring Chicken Barbecue Fundraiser. We sold out fairly early with around 500 chickens being cooked..

 Down at Mom and Dad's house on Mother's Day. TC and I spent the night and we were enjoying a nice morning outside..

Yesterday was a good day indeed. God is good and faithful. We started with our Gideon speaker and had an offering of over 700 dollars. Afterwards, our church, and a good number, went to Ebeneezer Children's Home for a cook out. Everyone had a great time and it was a good thing for sure. TC worked hard to make sure that the workers were served instead of them having to do the serving. Daymon, Bobby and Glen did a good job cooking. Good day indeed...

Since Revival the church has been very busy. God is working in our midst, and I might add that I don't understand all the ways in which he is moving. There is a unity among the core group that I have never experienced before. God is like that. We recently went on a mission trip to Red Springs Mission Camp. We really enjoyed this time together and we assisted a family in getting closer to getting in their house. What a special place..
