I don’t have much news this week, but I wanted to pass this along. I just learned that Beth Patterson, of Jefferson, passed away and was buried in the Tira Cemetery on January 4, 2019. Her husband, was the late Jerry Patterson. Please be in prayer for the family. I have to admit that I am not familiar with this couple. I would love to be able to share more about their connection to our community.
Joyce Dodd would like to remind everyone about their Bible study at the Tira Methodist Church. The meet every two weeks and their next session is at 1:00 on January 22nd. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Our grandson, Kenden, invited us to hear his girlfriend, Whitney, sing at her church on Sunday. Chip, Tiffany, Jaidyn and I met Kenden and Whitney at the Church of the Nazarene, after attending church and Sunday School at First Baptist Church. We enjoyed her song and their service. Afterward, we picked up Grace, Chip’s mother, and went out for lunch.
Chip spent Monday and Tuesday in Malvern, Arkansas, helping Tiffany’s fiancé, Perry Gilbert, with some home repairs. He returned just in time for Jaidyn’s Little Dribblers basketball game at North Hopkins.
