Cerwin and Dwayne went to the chapel early and helped the local men set up the chapel. By the time Doug, Ellen, and I got there this is what it looked like.
A pastor friend of the New Caney ministry team, David Lino (dark blue shirt) stopped in to see the chapel. I loved his British accent and thought maybe his birth country was Australia. However, he said he grew up in a British speaking area of Africa.
Cerwin, David, and his son were hooking up the TV and computer for worship on Saturday and Sunday.
Pastor Lino was asked to pray for the chapel, staff, and activities in the next few days.
Pastor Dennis presented the New Caney and TFC staff with nice shirts.
Pastor Dennis and his wife treated everyone to supper at the Fish Pond Restaurant in Willis, Texas.
He promised us a unique atmosphere, and we weren’t disappointed.
I enjoy unique restaurants, so loved this place.
The best catfish sandwich I have ever eaten.
It feels like we have know these Texas people forever, yet we only met them a few days ago. It was especially fun to meet Chaplain Don’s wife, Barbara, (pink blouse) after corresponding with her for the past half year.
We could have visited much longer, but soon it was time to move on. They were taking us to another place for dessert.
What fun! Choose a bowl. Fill it with your favorite flavor or flavors of yogurt. Choose toppings – from lots of toppings. Weigh it. Pay for it.
Me: I like to stick with something simple and close to the same flavor. Mango yogurt. Tiny mango flavored balls – similar to fish eye tapioca. Real mango chunks. I am still delighting in the flavor of mango in my mouth.
The chapel cross was beauty to our eyes when we got back to the Flying J parking lot.
