DSC_8924The Gabriels gave an amazing concert.

They are one of my favorite, local gospel groups – because they are quite talented and because Derek (right) is the son of my cousin Diane and her husband Keenan.

DSC_8931Will Stoner, a driver for Beam Farms, shared his testimony – of how the ABCs of Salvation (a regular section in TFC’s Highway News) helped him understand salvation through Christ.

DSC_8938Jeff Batzer, TFC’s Executive Vice President of Ministry Programs gave a ministry update.

DSC_8939Chaplain Jay asked the Elkton #1 team to come forward for prayer.

This is the chapel where Jay serves as lead chaplain.

DSC_8942Bunny O’Hare, TFC’s Director of Pastoral Care for Chaplains, anointed Chaplain Richard who will be leading a new ministry at the TA Travel Center near Bloomsbury, New Jersey. He has been serving and training at the Elkton #1 Chapel.

TFC had a chapel at the Bloomsbury truck stop for many years, but were asked to leave when there was major construction, and the general manager claimed there would not be room for a chapel.

DSC_8946We are excited that this truck stop is again open to TFC ministry.

DSC_8952Jay presented him with a journal…

DSC_8955…and a few joke gifts, because he has apparently lost or misplaced some things. 🙂

DSC_8963Jay gave an update of the ministry at the Life-Saver chapel.

DSC_8966 Prayer for his and Nan’s Prayer and Advisory Team.

Then there was more music by the Gabriels.

DSC_8997The program closed with Jay and Nan thanking those who helped make the evening possible, and Pastor John praying for Jay and Nan and the ministry of TFC.

DSC_9004Jay and Nan wanted a picture of the TFC staff who were in attendance, so I found someone to take our picture.

DSC_9011 It was certainly a delightful evening at Manor Church.
