This past Sunday we headed over to Keyport Bible Church (Bob's home church) for Sunday School and Worship. We sat in on Curt Browning's Adult class in which we covered Zechariah 13. Curt was Bob's Junior High Sunday School teacher, former Elder, hiking partner and continuing mentor. Pastor Mike Chinn preached from Luke 9 on a "Glimpse of Glory! Back to Present Reality." It was a good time to get to know a few new people and fellowship with many we've know for years. We had a nice lunch with Curt and Marilyn Browning following church. There are already a couple others who want to spend time with us next go round.
After lunch we headed south across the Narrow's Bridge toward Elma, west of Olympia. We took a short detour to the Tacoma Mall for a few items. It also gave us time to contemplate where we go on to Elma considering the snowy situation on the road. We decided to make the trip which went fine. Arriving a bit early we decided to stop in at Saginaw's Cafe for coffee and dessert. Then we made our way to the High School for a Christmas Cantata. Grace Community Church, where NICE Missionaries Ken & Ruth Davis serve as Pastor, were one of five churches involved. Pastor Ken was given the privilege of sharing some thoughts following the concert. The musical was called The Promise of Light which had a great Christmas gospel message.
