Home with a Heart, Liberty, SC

Thank you, Mike Johnson, for inviting our family to come and sing gospel hymns at your Home With a Heart Fish Fry.  We had fun and admire all of the work for the Lord ya’ll are doing over there!  We look forward to coming and watching your graduation later this month.   Our prayers are with you and the men.

Deborah was excited to try on one of your sombreros as she is excitedly anticipating her Mexico mission trip!

Padgett’s Creek Baptist Church, Union, SC

It was a cool experience to sing and play our instruments in the 4th oldest church in South Carolina!  Your sanctuary was beautiful, and it looked so old-fashioned!  We had a fun time providing the music for your evening service!  🙂

Also, thank you SO much for the sandwiches after.  We always get VERY hungry after taking down our music equipment!

Thank you for inviting us to provide music for your evening service at New Life Baptist Church!  You were a very nice group!  🙂  Thank you, Mrs. Carrie Dallas, for sending pictures you took that night.  We appreciated that and are including several here below.

First Baptist Church, Laurens, SC

We had a really fun time singing and playing our instruments for your senior luncheon.  Thank you for inviting us, Mrs. Rogers!  We were glad that Luke and Deborah were able to make it from work—in the nick-of-time!  The food was incredible (especially the creamed corn)!  And the cheesecake hit the spot!!  🙂

Deborah was rushing to get to the church from work, so Phebe had to tune her harp!

We liked the cute snowman decorations!

Greenville Place Christmas Service

Even though we didn’t have a white Christmas, there was a thick coating of frost covering the whole ground Christmas morning, so I guess that’s all we can expect in the South. 🙂 We had fun spending time with our wonderful friends at the Greenville Place on Christmas Evening. We did a lot of Christmas songs, and Daddy gave a great sermon.

The Pastor’s Class Christmas Party!

Thank you so much to our wonderful pastor for inviting us to sing and play for your class Christmas party.  The dinner was DELICIOUS!  Thank y’all for all the extra food you gave to our family.  That was so thoughtful.  We are already enjoying it!  🙂  Mama and Papa have also enjoyed being part of this Bible Fellowship Class.

Thank you for having us sing and play our instruments for your Christmas party!  We really appreciated the meal.  The cakes were phenomenal!  As you know, it was Deborah’s birthday, and she said, “That was the most fun I’ve had at a senior luncheon!”  We all enjoyed it.  Mrs. Kathy did a great job in her drama presentation of the missionary, Lottie Moon.  We learned a lot, and we loved her costume.

Thank you so much for inviting me (Deborah) to play my harp for your Sounds of Peace Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony!  I had a lot of fun.  Thank you also for the bell you gave me.  Also, the punch and cookies were delicious!  🙂

Seekers Class Christmas Party!

Thank you, Sheila, for inviting us to play our instruments and sing for the Seekers Class Christmas Party!  We had such a great time!  Your class is so friendly, and the food was delicious!  🙂

In Memory of Wes Hansen

Thank you, Mrs. Hansen, for asking us to sing and play at your dear husband’s funeral.  He loved Jesus Christ and served him faithfully to the end.  We all look forward to seeing him again one day in our Heavenly Home in “Beulah Land”!
