A Thanksgiving Report

Thanksgiving Centerpiece, originally uploaded by Shirley Buxton.

At the registration table for Andrew’s Thanksgiving service at his church, was this beautiful centerpiece fashioned by Elena. Andrew is into the second year of planting a church in La Mesa. At this special service the Sunday before Thanksgiving, they had 92 in attendance, served a beautiful dinner, and gave away six or seven baskets of food and 60 turkeys. We attended that service which was at 1:00 pm.

We had come from Steve’s 10 o’clock service in Chula Vista. They also served a huge meal after the worship service, deep frying 15 turkeys and presenting scores of other dishes. Their attendance that morning was more than 350, and the service was wonderful with beautiful music and dynamic preaching by Steve.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 83 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
