The time has come. This is our very first week in retirement. We know it is going to be an adjustment for us, after 56, none stop, years in pastoral ministry. We are spending time here at our condo for Bess to recover from her shoulder manipulation procedure that was on Tuesday of this week. She is following this up with a time of therapy for a number of days. Thanks so much for all of your prayers and concern for her. We are very grateful.
This coming Lord’s Day interim pastor Jerome Hancock will begin his ministry at Lake Gibson. Bess and I know Jerome and Brenda very well. They are an outstanding couple, with a tremendous pastoral record.  Bess and I know they will do a wonderful ministry during their time here. Please keep them in your prayers with love and support that is so important during this transition time. Be sure to be present their very first Sunday, and invite all you can to join you.
The best is yet to come!​
