Happy Mother’s Day! We recognized several mothers today for the following:

1.  Mother with the youngest baby – Sis. Laura
2.  Mother with the earliest Mother’s Day greeting -Sis. Connie A. (received a call at 5 am)
3.  Mother with the biggest bag – Sis. Georgia
4.  Mother with the biggest age gap from one child to the next – Sis. Carol (15 years!)
5.  Mother with the most children – Sis. Elsa (7 children)

Sis. Patty received the special Mother’s Day award this year for being “Mom” to Amey while her dad, Bro. Byl, is deployed. The ladies shared a Mother’s day poem and song and Casey and Chloe sang “My Mother’s Gentle Love”.

After service there was another bakesale for the Mission’ s trip to Thailand in 2009.

Windows of the Heart

May 7, 2008

This year’s Mother’s Banquet was held at the Yuan San Restaurant at the Grand Plaza Hotel. If our heart had a window for others to peer through, what would they see? Several ladies presented “Windows of the Heart”, a ladies program by Dorothy Skinner. Through this program, it is her hope that listeners will allow God to clean their heart windows until they shine with God’s love, spilling out God’s sunshine to those in need. It is also her prayer that God will mend broken hearts, rendering them beautiful and useful, no matter which heart window they possess, for His service and glory!

Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: Psalm 139:23

Mrs. Byrd shares her testimony and opens our time together in prayer.

Sharing how different windows can depict our heart condition.

 Mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends!

What a cute flower growing out of that flower pot!

 Of course there was food!

Mothers are known to be expert multi-taskers. They can carry their baby, talk on the phone, do laundry, and go shopping, sometimes simultaneously and without much trouble. Here the ladies are showing how it’s done in a game called “Super Mom”.

In another game, daughters were blindfolded while having to choose their mother’s hands. These daughters truly know their mothers…they all guessed right!

 

Some men dropped by to spy on us ladies!

Down to Merizo with Bro. Jon

May 4, 2008

After our back-to-back service last Sunday, we headed down to Merizo for our last fellowship with Bro. Jon De Rusha. It was a little overcast but the sun peeked out enough to give us a cloud covered sunset with reddish hues that was still picture perfect. Many jumped into the water from the pier, while others just relaxed and watched from dry ground.

The drive down to Merizo is breathtaking!

Put Bro. Frank near water and it’s fishing time!

Are we eating again?

Group pictures with Bro. Jon.

Time to get into the water…

1, 2, 3…JUMP!

A few more pictures after the sun set.

So long Bro. Jon, we will sure miss you!

Portia, who paints and draws the scenery for the shows, and we can’t forget the guys in the sound & audio department, Bro. Toney and Bro. Jesse. Great job everyone!
