We started an AWANA program a couple of weeks ago with seven kids and now we are up to ten kids. The kids seem to love it. We discovered a couple of boxes of old Awana materials and we were able to obtain additional material on Ebay and Amazon.

Currently, I am preaching through First Peter and I will finish up chapter one this week. Our average attendance has increased to about 16 and we are continuing to make contacts in the community. Our pianist has been gone for the last three weeks so I have been doing all the music on my guitar. Dayle is teaching a junior church for the younger children. We have also been busy taking care of the grounds as well as the building. Along with Awana, sermon preparation, music planning, and making weekly bulletins. It's all a lot of work, but we love it!
On November 19th we will be driving 7 hours to Grants Pass where Dayle will receive her third infusion treatment for her osteoporosis. We will also spend two nights with Mel and Annie and celebrate and early Thanksgiving. If weather permits we will also drive to Sacramento to spend Thanksgiving with Stephen and Neeley.
