Some of the Nicest People—Brethren

Saturday, August 18, Martha and I made a leisurely drive up the Natchez Trace toward Tupelo, Mississippi. After pausing for lunch, stretching our legs and refueling the car, we proceeded to Tuscumbia, Alabama. Our hosts this weekend, brother Daniel and sister Joan Counts, always graciously receive us into their home. I suppose that I have been their occasional guest for about a decade, first with my late wife Bonnie and now with my wife Martha. Catching up and enjoying good meals together are the delightful norm.

On the Lord’s Day, we worshipped with the Leighton, Alabama Church of Christ, where the Counts are longtime members. Here, too, we are always well received. We are indebted to the Counts and to the Leighton Church of Christ for their encouragement and participation with us in our mission work.

Sister Counts loves animals, live (e.g., her dog and three cats) as well as figurines, paintings and statues. One of the new arrivals are a bronze doe and buck in the Counts’ picturesque front lawn.

Silently and largely unheralded, supporters send funds to sustain what we attempt to do for the Lord. We are thankful and dependent upon each kind word and selfless gift. For instance, individual Christians and churches of Christ have made it possible to provide a robust ATV to brethren in a very remote interior part of South America, so those Christians can more expediently evangelize the savannahs, mountains and jungles where they live. Thank you to one and all.
