  • Deer hunting season in full swing on the Branch

    It was 28 degrees on the Branch this morning. It’s always a little colder here in the valley than the surrounding area.
    Deer hunting season is in full swing. All the Whitesburg contingency are at the hunting shack. I heard the shotguns in the distance. We don’t allow hunting our farm. It’s just too narrow and we have three houses with vulnerable windows to protect, but there are lots of deer and they know a “free zone” and congregate on our land.

    Bro. John’s sermon was on John 21:20-25 “What’s That To You” where Peter worried about what John was doing instead of worry about his own actions.

Please keep in prayer all those on our prayer list, including unsaved family and friends, families who have lost loved ones, the military, missionaries, our police force, government officials, school systems and our church family.
