The Dunk Tank
We finally got a new pastor. Our church has been without a lead pastor for about a year and a half. That's hard on a church. Anyway, his first day of work is today. He and his wife are soooo personable and his couple of "tryout sermons" were really good. I think he will be a good fit for us. Dr. O and I got a chance to talk to him for a few minutes. We found out that he loooovvves applesauce and apples! I think it will be fun to try to get to know him. He's our age so that's cool. I guess by the time your our age, that's an acceptable age to be for most positions! I alway think of us being so young, but really, we're not so young anymore. My the time my dad was my age, he'd already been pastoring about 12-15 years! Oh, now I feel old! Now about the dunk tank! We had baptisms yesterday. I love baptisms. They always share their tesimonies and I love to hear the way people come to Christ or how they have grown in Christ. It is always so exciting. We had 2 adults and 4 youth. It was so neat! It also makes you realize how easy some of us have had it or how hard others had to fight to get to where they are today. Not everybody had as good a home as I did (even tho I didn't think I did for a very long time). It could have been much worse. Calico Kid has been sick yesterday and today. Yesterday his fever got up to 102.9 then went back to normal. Today, he woke up with 102 again. Hopefully, he'll go back to normal and stay there. Our Dr. is 45 minutes away, so I hate to go if we don't have to. Wish I knew what's wrong with him.
