Life is settling down, except for a few happenings.
My biggie was the party at the church for Earl and Lenda Thompson’s 50th anniversary. I’m telling you, these folks know how to party. The stars of the show were our pastor and his wife, Scott Fenton and Judy. Those two are something else, fun but deeply committed to their ministry. They are real people persons, and very friendly, but never forgetting the seriousness of their calling. Pastor and wife  are truly loved by all the church family.

Without question, this is a stunningly beautiful part of our country. We were blessed to enjoy the mountain vistas from Pikes Peak, giant rock formations at Garden of the Gods, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Cave of the Winds and a tour of the Focus on the Family ministry headquarters.
