He who laughs, lasts!

Written by: The Bridge on Wednesday, May 17th, 2006

The other day, my Mom and me decided to go checking up on what the men were doing. We strolled down to the mill where they were working on the grader. As we got closer, we heard Paul Vetter and my Dad laughing so loud. We looked at each other, and Mom wondered what brought that on; she commented on how good it was to hear dad laugh like that. They stood there, laughing and laughing; they could only sa....

A Friend In Need Is A Friend, Indeed!

Because, the children eat with the adults, things can sometimes get quite interesting. At some meals, one little boy will get it into his head to show off for everyone, no matter how many times he's asked to sit down, he will still keep at it.

We had a good three hour service, then towards the end all the baptized members were called to s....

Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. Matthew 10:16. Somehow, I think that this is a very fitting verse for our situation. There are so many people who will simply try and take advantage of you, and then there are others, who are honest about what they are doing. Somehow, we have to discern between one and the other.
Last year, about this time, Paul Vetter wanted to buy t....
