Our second great-grandson was born last April. We met him for the first time on Friday. This is Jordan with Len's son Lenny (the grandpop).
Granddaughter Madison stayed with us in the fiver on Saturday night.
Last year while visiting this area, we drove about 60 miles to the town of Natural Bridge. The town was named for a natural stone/rock bridge that is open for tourism. When in the gift shop, we saw a brochure with the United Methodist logo on it. The brochure was about the Christian Place Mission in nearby Nauvoo. The mission provides meals and other necessities to local residents. The gentlemen running the gift shop told us a little about the mission and church and their plan to build a community building.
We told him a little about the NOMADS and how they might be of help. We were thrilled to see the pastor, Roger Westin, and the director of the mission, Carole Newman, followed up with our suggestion and the plan is for some NOMADS to head their way this Spring to assist in whatever way they can.
This morning we drove the 50 some miles from the campground to attend their small church and meet Roger and Carole in person.
Maddie was asked to light the candles.
We stayed for Sunday School. The children:
After services we went out for Barbecue with Carole and Dorothy (Granny). That is Granny on the left with Carole on the right.
Once more it was a real treat to meet such nice folks while on our travels. Especially ones who are so dedicated and filled with God's love.
