On Sunday morning, August 2, we will be down the road in White Plains, Kentucky at the Mt. Carmel Cumberland Presbyterian Church with our dear friends, Pastor and Mrs. John Shoulta.  We always look forward to a great time with them.  They have a tornado come through there and have which did some extensive damage to their church, but they have come through strong.  We will be excited to celebrate another homecoming with them during the 11:00 am (CT) service hour.  The church is located at 11504 Mt. Carmel Road.

On Sunday morning, August 9, we will be in Central City, Kentucky at the Lighthouse Baptist Church for a homecoming service at 10:00 am (CT).  It has been a few years since we have been at Lighthouse, but we have some longtime and very dear friends there who started this church many years ago-the Everlys.  We love them dearly and look forward to celebrating homecoming with them.  The church is located at 350 North 4th Street.

On Saturday night, August 15, we will be in West York, Illinois at The Barn which is located on the Hickory Holler Campground there.  It is part of Crossties Christian Ministries.  We will make our annual visit there.  We are a little later in the season this year, so we are excited about that and hope to see some new friends there.  They will be serving food at 4:30 before the 6:00 pm (CT) concert time.  I am not sure what the charge for the food is, but you can find out more by calling 618-563-4779.  The Barn is located at 9876 East 2000th Avenue.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope, and a future.

This time of the year we are celebrating graduation day with so many of those who have studied and made preparations for the future, rather it be high school, college or otherwise. We have recently celebrated the graduation of our own daughter/granddaughter, Courtney, from law school. It seems only yesterday when she was graduating from kindergarten! To say we are proud parents and grandparents would be an understatement. We were proud of her accomplishments during those years and to watch her hard work pay off was quite rewarding. We heard the speakers say that she was valedictorian at the high school graduation and graduated magna cum laude from both college and law school. Yes, we were proud of her, and we were waiting with big hugs and proud grins at the end of the aisle afterwards.
