Church Farewell - January 8th, 2012

I don't know words to express how overwhelmed we were by everyone's love and thoughtfulness in the surprise going away they did for daddy and us.  It was so special!!!  A huge thank you to everyone who helped make it so special - were appreciate it and are truly blessed.  Here are some pictures...
Note: I'm sorry some of the pictures aren't super great quality.  I was having camera trouble that day!

Everyone assembled and enjoying lunch

The Blevins family joined us for the day - what a special surprise!!

All of the men had something to share - such a blessing and encouragement.  
Joshua even called in from San Antonio!
Mr. Bender

Mr. Howell

Mr. Ford

Mr. Sawyer

Mr. Thomas

 Mr. Hofmann

 Mr. Fleshman

 Billy Gilmore

 Mr. Ahlgren

 Mr. Lindsey

 Mr. Ocker

 The Ockers put together a really neat slide show of the history of our church and friendships over the years.  It's amazing that it has been 10 years now since the Lord helped us to plant what is now Reformation Heritage Fellowship.

Below are a couple of my favorite slides of the day :)


 "God Be With You Till We Meet Again"
-I don't know why we had to sing that song... it makes for too many wet eyes!

 Ariel Ford made this beautiful cake for the occasion 

 Isn't that neat?!

 Keith Allen is so adorable!!

 Me and Melinda Blevins - such a dear friend

 Yay!!  I got to hold Keith!! :)

 Game time


 More Fellowship

 More games!


 Corinne and Calvin

 Fun times

 Ping pong

 The men

 Lilian is a doll!!  This is how she posed when I asked for a picture! :)

 They gave us a really neat surprise basket filled with fun things for our trip and special notes of encouragement for everyone - thank you everyone!!!  So special!!!

 The men started playing the most interesting game of pool I've ever seen

 Daddy did his famous "Casey at the Bat" :)


He does such a great job!
