Jerry & Rachel's Farewell

Sunday night was Jerry and Rachel Wyatt's last service with us. They are leaving the 15th for Tanzania, East Africa. They are going to spend time with family on their way to where they will actually leave. So we had a special service last night. We are full of mixed emotions! We are going to miss them so much,but are so excited and proud that they are going to serve their Lord on a foreign field. They will be joining Jerry's folks there to work with them so that is a very special blessing. We will miss you guys! We love you !! Our prayers go with you !

Joe called them to the Pulpit to present them with a few gifts from the church.
Each were given an "English" Bible.

A cd of Marion Ave Special Music

and a dvd of the church's history
After the service we headed downstairs for fellowship

Donuts and coffee
Signing Bibles
and our "good byes"
and LOTS of fellowship!

Mary Jane got caught TWICE getting donuts !!!

This blog brought tears to my eyes. Okay really streaming down my checks. I will miss them so much; and I remember Michael and I talking about maybe some day seeing them on the field. That dream is gone for me but I am proud to say they are from our church.
