Classmates from Hammond

I preached this week end for Pastor Dusty Ray. He pastors the Heartland Baptist Church in Murfreesboro, Tn. We had a great day in the Lord. A dad and his daughter trusted Christ this morning in the service. It was great! I preached the sermon, "Who Shall Be Damned?" Tonight I preached the sermon, "Everything Rises And Falls On Followship."

Before the service tonight I was reminded that Pastor Ray's dad Allen and I attended Hyles-Anderson College of Crown Point, Indiana, at the same time. I do not remember him but he says he remembers me and my wife. The picture is of Pastor Dusty Ray and his sister Lynnea. Then it struck me that his son Pastor Ray and his daughter Lynnea were in the Hammond school system at the same time and in the same class that my daughter Kim and son Bob were. Lynnea is married and her last name is Mejia. Talk about a small world!

We had a great time of fellowship after the service. The church had a time of fellowship with all the necessary food in their fellowship hall after the service. You would have been so proud of me. I did not eat the deserts. I was good! I promise! Baptist ladies are the best cooks in the entire world!
