Standing in the Midst of Heroes

A few Sundays back we honored one of our members, Carlos Easterday, who has recently been nominated to the Ohio Military Hall of Fame. What a special day it was! Mike Art, a brother from the Cambridge congregation, did a great job in honoring Carlos in hid presentation. Carlos, a Korean War veteran, was truly humbled and it was the firs time I ever have seen him speechless :). Carlos and Mike are both members of our local Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter. We are honored that they meet every month at our building. It allows me to surround myself with heroes on a regular basis and get some great food as well. Recently at our local courthouse a new monument remembering our local Purple Heart veterans was unveiled. Please take time out to thank God for those who have served and who are serving our country in the military. Because of them we are free.

On a side note our teens leave for our mission trip to Nashville on Saturday. Pray for our success and for a safe return.
