Pastor Ben is doing well, and was released from the hospital yesterday. We had to talk him out of coming to choir practice last night -- a good sign that he's spunky again.
Huckabee dropped out of the race. Everybody knew he didn't have a snowball's chance, but I loved his delightful quips and stories. It made the race much more interesting. Maybe McCain can hire him to give some public speaking and bass guitar lessons.
Today, we're headed to Waterloo to visit our son, Adam and his beautiful wife, Allegra, and to see their new apartment. That's going to be a lot of fun!
Our Faith Promise total for Missions last Sunday, was about $64,000 -- well on the way to our $80,000 goal. (In comparison, last year at this point, the total was on $28,000.) It was a blessing to see that even in tough economic times, our people rose to the challenge of bringing God's love to those who are less fortunate.
