White Mills

Terri Spencer, 862-4604

I am so sorry about not having a column last week. My Internet went down. Isn’t it amazing how we have become so dependent on technology?

This has been an awesome spring. The weather is starting to get warmer, but not in the summer temperatures like last year. No really severe weather, which always is a concern this time of year. The trees are such a bright green and just look so fresh and wonderful. The spring flowers are blooming in abundance and in the fields, even the weeds look pretty. It has been a while since we have had a spring like this and I am really enjoying it. I hope you are too.

ANNIVERSARIES. Happy anniversary to the following couples, Michael and Lanissa Elmore on May 16; and Randy and Kari Ash on May 17. May God bless you with many, many more wonderful years together.

BIRTHDAYS. Happy birthday to all of the following Chris Strange on May 5, Arielle Hammett and Brianna Singer on May 8 and McKenzie Gum on May 9. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

CHURCH NEWS. The Childress Family came May 5 to White Mills Baptist Church to sing and help us celebrate our homecoming Sunday. They were awesome. If you have never heard this group, I urge you to get in touch with them via their website and have them come to your church and sing. We had a great crowd and a terrific meal afterwards. Thanks to everyone who worked to make all of this happen.

On April 28t I visited Franklin Crossroads Baptist Church to be a part of giving out Bibles and certificates to the children who attended the Good News Club at Howevalley Elementary School. It was such an honor to be part of this team that included John and Linda Gearheard and Vanessa. The children were so wonderful and faithful to attend each week. There was an average of 24 children there each week to learn more about the love of Jesus and the Bible. Good News Club has ended at Howevalley for this school year, but will return after school starts again in the fall. I hope to see all of you back then.
