November 23, 2008

We held a change of command for the Master Club during the evening service today. Bro. Besar Santos, outgoing Master Club Commander, gave the command of the club to Bro. Mark Ishmael. We would like to thank Bro. Besar for his leadership these past two years. We pray the Lord will continue to use and bless him at his next duty station. We’ll miss you Bro. Besar!

John had to be carried out of the water. I think the crabs were pinching his toes.

Speaking of babies…let’s have another Blog Contest! As you all know, Ed and Marie Collado are expecting their 5th son, (yes, it’s a boy,) early next year. They need some help naming their new baby. All of their son’s names begin with a “J” and yes, they want another “J” name.

Here are their other son’s names starting with the eldest: Jonathan Edward, Jared William, Jason Paul, and Jeremy Luke. If you’d like to join the contest please place your name choice in the comment section of this post so we can keep track. This time the contest will be open to our former members who are off island too : ) There’s no guarantee any of your names will be chosen but if it is you’ll win a “little” prize. Have fun!
