Several have asked about Alice and My Weekend Away which you gave Alice and I at Easter for the 10th Anniversary of my Installation at Zion. We left the afternoon of Thursday, June 11th, and traveled out along I-80 as far as Cheyenne, WY, seeing several old friends we hadn’t seen in a while. On Monday morning, June 15th, I stopped at Jennie Edmonson to see a member on our way through Council Bluffs. The trip was very good. Heloise Zwonitzer of Cheyenne (mother of one of my friends from Seminary – it was through her and her husband that Alice and I met) wishes to express her thanks (she turns 90 this year and Alice calls her “My Cheyenne Mom”). Thank you for your gift to us, what a blessing to serve our Lord with you.
Our District’s Camp Okoboji is celebrating its 75th Anniversary. To help the Celebration, our Endowment Committee sent a $750 check ($10 per year) with our lay delegate Allen Fann to the District Convention. Also, our Endowment Committee will cover 75% of the registration of any young Zion camper who attends Camp Okoboji this summer. Kids, this is a great opportunity and you can get more information from our Church Office.
At our June Semi-Annual Voters Meeting, we reelected and elected several officers, but not someone for Christian Nurture. Without a Christian Nurture Chair or Co-Chairs, Sunday School, Children’s Christmas Program, Weekday and other educational programs will be difficult to keep going. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to lead someone (or perhaps a couple) to step forward and serve. Keep praying and see you in Divine Service.
