We have been constantly amazed at the beauty of this country. It is a feast for the eyes during the spring. On a recent hike, I saw fields of dandelion flowers, the largest blooming pear tree I have ever seen, and gorgeous vistas of faraway hills.

Easter was pretty special this year, but the day started like most other Sundays. We got up early, got ourselves ready, picked up Bob and Dana, and headed to church. Just a mile or two before we arrived at the church building, we received a call from our pastor, telling us that there was a wedding in progress at the Seventh Day Adventist church. Many of you know that we rent the Seventh Day Adventist’s building for our Sunday worship each week, since they aren’t using it. However, our rental contract includes a provision which allows them to use it occasionally. They had told us a couple of months ago that they would need the building on April 1st, 2018 for a wedding. Rene had announced it in church. And, all of us had promptly forgotten about it – until 9:30 yesterday morning. Plan “B” was to worship in our living room. Most of our members and a few visitors showed up. Nearby is a picture of the luncheon afterwards. It was a joy!
