A Sabbath in Safford

Summer road trip. Day 18 Sunday, June 19, 2011

Here in Safford at Harvest Tabernacle, they have their Sunday school classes completely separate from their regular service, which begins at 12:00. Their music is excellent; great instrumentalists, as well as talented singers. Very nicely done music.

Jerry did a great job preaching, using as his text scripture the story of the four men who tore the roof off the building to get their sick friend to Jesus. What a powerful account that is. I never tire of hearing it.

It was after 4:00, I believe, when we had finished eating, and we had gone back to our motor home. The Keyes invited us out to their home for dessert later in the evening–well, more dessert–for we had already indulged at the restaurant. Around 7:00 we drove to their house, where we spent a couple of hours visiting with them, and talking about the things of God. Oh, yes! The dessert: coconut cream pie and strawberry shortcake!

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. :)
