Yesterday, Debra and I we thrilled to attend, and speak a few words at the retirement party for Luther Massengale, Pastor of the Crab Orchard church. After announcing his retirement some months ago, Brother and Sister Massengale have begun the process of preparing for their move to Coalfield, Tennessee where their home is located.

There was a large crowd in attendance, a lot of nice gifts and great food! This party was hosted by the Massengale children, and invitations had been sent out so that we could be a part of this day, we are so happy to have had the opportunity to be there.

Effective August 1, 2008, Pastor Terry Swaw, his wife Heather and their son Andrew will assume the responsibilities there. Please join me in prayer for the Massengales and the Swaw family at this time of transition.
