Newsline for July 29 2016
Good morning to you on this last Friday of July. It seems like July went by slower than June. But, some of you know that this last week has gone by especially slow for me. And on that note, keep our group of chaperones and youth returning from Peru this weekend in your prayers that they will have safe travels as well as others from our Chase Park family that are travelling (last minute vacations, etc.).
Happy birthday today to Martha Ferguson and Clarence Albright. Feliz cumpleaños, Señora Ferguson. (This is for my Lane who has been speaking Spanish in Peru all week.) And remember 94 cards to Mr. Clarence on this his 94th birthday. Happy birthday Saturday, July 30 to Brannon Emperley and Ben Hand. On Sunday, July 31, happy birthday to Nathan Hill and Donnie Sharp. Remember all these with blessings and best wishes.
Congratulations – New Christian
