10/11/12    Fall 2012 Travels

“Oh, those WV hills, how majestic and how grand . . .!”  Suzanna had forgotten how much she loves the autumn time, after our last 3 years in South Asia, where we had no fall season.  Praise the Lord for the opportunities to visit churches, friends, and family in WV and VA during this lovely season!

Pastor Bud and Bernie Israel 
How many couples do you know who have been married 61 years and not only celebrate each anniversary every February but also celebrate the date of their first date every October?  How romantic!

Pearisburg, VA
Uncle Gillett Wickline will be 94 October 21st.  Tears ran down his face as he praised the Lord for being with him in his lonely hours since Aunt Bobbie passed away.  Every night he reads John 17 and rejoices that Jesus’ prayer included all of us who have believed.

We first met Heather and Zach Rice in 2003 while they were part of our Owensboro church, Pleasant Grove Baptist.  It was a joy to worship with them at Corinth Baptist Church in London, KY, where Zach is worship leader.  It was a special delight to meet Macey for the first time!
