Art/Architecture Christianity/Religion Church Road Trip Journal

Sunday in Globe, Arizona

Summer road trip. Day 25 Sunday June 26, 2011

Brother and Sister Dean came to Globe 19 years ago. Since then, they have baptized scores of people, and have erected this fine building. Actually the front half of it was already standing when they bought the property; the extensions were added by them. All of it is paid for.  I want to honor this fine couple today for their commitment to God and to His Church. They are a wonderful couple, with the Work of God being uppermost in their thoughts and plans.

We joined them in a sweet service on Sunday. Several visitors were present, and were praying in the altar.

More food afterward, of course, and Italian it would be. Delicious meal in a wonderful atmosphere.

This building piqued my interest as they showed us around Globe.

In the evening, we met them in Judy’s Cook House for a snack and for more great visiting.

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. :)
