Church Outing

We attempt to have a church activity each month. It is usually inside during the winter and if we can get a sunny day, we do try and get outside. This past Thursday we went to Cotehele which is a Tudor house that has been maintained in the same family for several hundreds of years. One of the men who attends our services made his living as an antiques dealer and offered to give us a tour of the house and explain all of the furniture and artifacts. It was quite amazing to hear what all the things were. Little items that we would see as just decoration were actually things that were essential to life in the 1600's. We all enjoyed a picnic in the garden and then walked the grounds. The Harveys from Exeter came over for the day and it was agreed we need to have another day out in May.

Kent had a few good conversations with a few that came and it was good to spend time with the people in a relaxed atmosphere.

Easter Weekend


We trust everyone had a nice Easter weekend. In England, the Friday before is a bank holiday and the Monday after is a bank holiday so most people have a four day weekend. Everything shuts down and a mob of people come to Cornwall from upcountry for a holiday. We pretty much stayed around the house and worked on projects.

Sunday was a nice day. We had a few visitors in the morning service and a good service it was. People just seem to sing louder when we sing about the Resurrection. We had James and Connie over for Sunday lunch and cooked the traditional ham. It is always a joy to spend time with this couple She is 93 and he is 89 and they still desire to serve God. What a testimony of faithfulness!!

Took a new family pic for Easter and some new prayer cards.
