24 Ė 27 August, 2017
Sure enjoyed Yellow Springs. It was wonderful to hear George Peterson again. Travelled with Aaron Farough (left) and Jean Gravil (right) to Brownstown. We had the night with Dave and Rita Miller in their very comfortable home, 3 hours from Yellow Springs including a supper .
We left at 9:20 the next morning for the 3 hour trip to Brownstown and arrived at 11:20. (gained an hour so now 7 hours behind SA). Lunch was at 11:30 to be able to watch the full eclipse.
We saw it reach up to 98%. A little further South would have given 100%.
Alice Ė Peggy sends greetings. She is to be with Laura this year. Laura has just had the happiest year of her life. Started at 18 a year ago. Have met quite a number in the USA who have started at 18.
All buildings are air conditioned. Dining on left. Meeting hall is red with 2 stories of accommodation on top. The sisters are in the house; including the garage and basement. 7 of us brothers are in quarters to the right of the meeting hall. Have room on my own with a wash basin.
* We heard Saul (Paul) after deciding didnít walk around in the guilt of being wrong but of how he could be right with God. After seeing the light he fasted for 3 days that there be no distraction.
* Love helps us see things as they should be.
* Our human nature clings to the dust and clings to the worthlessness of a grudge or unfairness of what we may experience. Faith may be the first work changing our thinking. May it also work in areas in which we donít know how and deepened in areas in which we know Him.
There is a very hearty couple on the grounds here with 3 boys. They run a trucking business. Last Tuesday some of us visited an Air Force Museum. Today 7 of us brothers and 3 sisters accepted the invitation to see the Lincoln tomb and the Lincoln museum. The trip each way was close to 2 hours so it was a whole day affair with lunch out and an ice cream stop on the return. I was glad to chat a little to Lana MacDonald. She is from Ontario but went over in 2007 to the East and has worked in both countries Jim had time in.
