A Weekend of Rejoicing

What an awesome weekend we've had. Sharing memories and glorifying our God for bringing the church in Napa from tent to tabernacle. Friday night we visited the 'church on the hill', the first building that Bro. Price built here in Napa. We crowded into that little sanctuary and listened to testimonies of what God did there. Many pointed out the spot where they received their personal Pentecost. On Saturday we had a day of remembering what God has done since the move to the tabernacle on First Street. Many friends came who were a part of those great days. On Sunday we had an awesome service as we looked to the future and what God has in store for this city. His work is going on.

Ephesians 2:14 "For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition..."

Bro. Becton preached an awesome message on Sunday. We have many walls in our lives due to our personality and upbringing. We need to tear down the ones that hinder our effectiveness in serving God. Thomas had a wall of unbelief that separated him from a revelation. Jesus walked through that wall and ministered to him.

"...then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you." John 20:26

God moved in a glorious way and His people responded in worship.

No new news regarding my situation. My oncologist reported on Friday that my liver and kidney function and blood work look on and on with chemotherapy. This is truly a long valley. To God be the glory.

May the God of peace richly bless you today with peace.

Continuing on

I just love October skies. The majesty of the cloud formations, the colors, the bird migrations ...Spectacular. We enjoyed a few days at the coast in Pacific Grove. That particular coastline is beautiful. I never tire of it. Our friends, the Gordon Richardsons, came down to spend the day with us. We had fun picking out some new hats, touring the shops in Carmel by the Sea, and eating together.

New Life Tabernacle here in Napa is gearing up for our 60th Anniversary next weekend. Ya'll come. Sixty years ago, Bro and Sis Price set up a tent and Bro. Becton preached our first revival service. The first Napa convert from that meeting still attends our church. What a blessing of continuity.

I am enduring my treatments pretty well. Still waiting to have another PET scan in a few weeks. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your continued prayers.

Your friend,
