    By Edith Elliott
    Monday’s showers reminded us of the song, “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head.” And we were SO rejoicing over that! Though it was good for the farmers, Monday’s rain did cause our crowd at Evergreen Outreach to be a little short.
    Donna Smith greeted us with her great collection of music. She doesn’t need the notes before her to play the piano – only the titles of the songs. We do enjoy and appreciate her.

  • There are times that our hope needs a little help

    “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13.12

    These past three years, the Vandalia Ministerial Alliance has sponsored the National Day of Prayer. Until 2009, Duane Luallen organized this event for more than 20 years. When Duane gave it up for health reasons, it took several ministers to do what he had done. As a community and a ministerial alliance, we are eternally grateful to Duane for his outstanding contributions over the years!
