JW and Loreen Johnson

JW Johnson and his wife Loreen, were with us over the weekend. He preached all the services on Sunday at Bible Baptist Temple in St. Joseph. We spent quite a bit of time together and really enjoyed the fellowship which we really needed. Loreen gave her testimony Monday night at our ladies Heart N Home meeting. She is such a blessing to my heart. Safe travels!
I think people who never have missionaries, pastor or other full time Christian workers in there home or spend time with them are missing a huge blessing. You make friends for a lifetime!

Racine Wisconsin

My trip to Racine Wisconsin with my friend Janette was such a great blessing. Janette got to see some her family and I got to see some long time friends. Janette's brother rented us a great car and the ride gave us time to really enjoy fellowship. We also got to eat at the Iowa Machine Shed on several occasions. We were gone from Monday to Friday and traveled 1465 miles.

What wonderful fellowship we had with the Rettigs. They are headed back to Larimore ND be there a week or so and then back to the Czech Republic. They are truly servants of God.

Had a busy day today. Jon and Emilie Rettig, missionaries to the Czech Republic are coming by and spending the night on Sunday. We are so excited they are great friends and we have known them for MANY years. We spent 2 1/2 months in CR while they were on furlough in 2007 watching over their ministry. What a joy and a blessing that was.

Amelia Earhart

Today in history ---

1776 The Continental Congess votes for independence, passing a resolution that
"these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States."

On July 2, 1937, aviator Amelia Earhart took off from Lae, New Guinea, in her twin engine Lockheed Electra and flew east into overcast skies toward Holand Island, a sliver of land 2,600 miles away in the Pacific Ocean. She was never seen again.

Even today, searches for clues about Earhart's fate continue. Some experts believe her plane ran out of fuel and had to ditch in the Pacific. Others theorize that Earhart and
Noonan reached another island, where they eventually perished. So far, no solid evidence has turned up. Earhart's sense of adventure and determination to fly farther than before still fascinate Americans. "Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace," she wrote, words she lived by to the end.
