Oct. 8: Lebanon, I greeted the riders on the bus as they was being dropped off. One bus full of riders started to sing to me, Happy Birthday. Then a little girl as they finished singing said, “Jesus loves you!” I was blessed. What a great gift on my 54th birthday. I also received a number of cards and gifts from our friends at the church. Thank you! It was my privilege to preached three times today. First in the chapel service during the Sunday School hour for those adults who ride the bus. Then twice for the Harvest Home service. The congregation did a great job honoring the pastoral team.
