Coming home from our trip east, we got back in time to fill the pulpit at East Delavan Baptist Church on Sunday June 24th where Steve Hollenbeck is the pastor. I preached for the AM service as well as sharing a word of greeting to their Spanish-speaking church pastored by Rick Valdez and also their deaf class. With the state School for the Deaf and a large Spanish speaking population in their area, East Delavan Baptist Church has taken up the challenge of ministering to their demographic community.
Following the service we had a delicious dinner at a local Mexican Restaurant with the Hollenbecks. Pastor Hollenbeck has done a great job the past four years as the president of the WFBC. He will be ending his term as president this September at our annual meeting. Continue to pray for Steve as he recovers from thyroid surgery which he had on June 19th.
