Arkansas Again

Saturday, January 19, Bonnie and I launched out to Arkansas (from Rebecca’s home in Collierville, TN where we had lodged Friday and Saturday nights). We were the guests Saturday evening of Melissa and Garry Polk of Center Ridge, AR. He is one of the elders of the Center Ridge Church of Christ where I spoke Sunday morning for the Bible class and worship hours. As always, we received a kind and friendly welcome from the members. I made the 2012 Mission Trips PowerPoint presentation in class and preached What Is the Mission of the Church? in the next hour. After being treated to lunch at a Mexican restaurant, Bonnie and I headed toward our next appointment – also in Arkansas.

Sunday evening, I made the same PowerPoint presentation about missions to the Southside Church of Christ near Batesville, AR. It is a pleasure to visit these brethren every opportunity we have. From there, we headed back to Rebecca’s home for the night.

Both congregations visited on Sunday in Arkansas participated with us financially so that we can take the Gospel abroad. Not Bonnie because of recent illness, but I leave for Guyana, South America on February 7, 2013.

Before returning to Winona, MS, Bonnie, Rebecca and I did a little repair work on her home. It is incomplete, and at an unspecified time in the future and when we can squeeze a few moments out of our schedules we will continue some small repairs. At Grenada, MS some 20 miles north of Winona, Bonnie and I bought some groceries before dragging into 705 Devine Street, Winona, MS. We made the obligatory after dark grocery run on the way back to Winona from a weekend of appointments – this time in Arkansas.
