Winie Bradford had the birthday stage all to herself today since Dean and Sue were A.W.O.L.  Dean and Sue, you can run but you cannot hide from the birthday hat forever!  Winie is shown rocking the birthday hat, below.
Bob Barmore was our speaker today and presented a slide show of his recent trip to Israel.  Bob was joined on the trip by his wife, Julie and 44 others from Bethlehem Baptist Church.  Bob and Julie packed a lot into their ten day trip, visiting four sites each day, and gaining a new perspective on the Holy Land and the origins of their Christian faith.  Bob and Dana are pictured below.
