CHURCH HUMOR:huPastor woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he just had to play golf.

As soon as the associate pastor left The Pastor woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he just had to play golf. So.... he told the associate pastor that he was feeling sick and convinced him to preach for him that day. As soon as the associate pastor left the room, the Pastor headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away. This way he knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew from his church.
Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church! At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from heaven and exclaimed,
"You're not going to let him get away with this, are you?" The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not."Just then he hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole. IT WAS A 435 YARD HOLE IN ONE! Saint Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked,
"Why did you let him do that?"The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he going to tell?"
 
Dear Friends and Family,

Today the children that I work with in the Strumica UMC led the morning church service, in honor of Mother's Day.  They did a fine job: leading prayers, reading Scriptures, singing, presenting an interesting drama.  I was very proud of them.  You can see photos of the service at this web address:

(You do not have to belong to Facebook to open this link.)

Please pray for us as we plan summer activities for youth and children, including children with special needs.  Of course, finances are always a deciding factor.

Many thanks to those of you who support my work with your prayers and financial gifts.

Blessings,
Carol
