Leadership Seminar in Casa Grande

We’re in Casa Grande, a town halfway between Phoenix and Tucson, for a leadership seminar, staying at a hotel called the Francisco Grande. After we arrived here yesterday afternoon, I prowled around a bit, taking lots of pictures of this interesting place.

Brother David Bernard, the newly elected superintendent of the UPCI is the speaker for the sessions; last night was exceptional. A capacity crowd united in purpose and spirit, beautiful worship, plus an anointed and intellectual presentation made for a perfect service. Our final session will be at 10:00 this morning.

We’re on the 7th floor. There are a couple floors higher than ours, I think.  Beautiful soaring lines.

View off our balcony. Makes you dizzy, huh?

Tranquil gardens, here in the dead of winter, yet…unique pots…

Edit Saturday evening: Because we were at this resort such a short time, I didn’t really learn all its history until a few minutes ago when I watched the video that is on the hotel link. Very interesting. Take a look and a listen. Think you’ll like it.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 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. :)

I am an editor for which is a social network dedicated to the christian community. As I look through your web site I feel a collaboration is at hand. I would be inclined to acknowledge your website offering it to our users as I’m sure our Pentecostal audience would benefit from what your site has to offer. I look forward to your thoughts or questions regarding the matter.
