My Wonderful Help Meet!

Today is our 32 anniversary and I want to say how much I love my dear wife Sherry. 32 years ago we started out on our journey together with a desire to serve the Lord. I told Sherry of my hearts desire to carry the gospel message and she said she was willing to follow me anywhere in the service of the Lord. She has certainly done that.

After being married only one year and three months we sold out, packed up, and headed to Mexico in February of 1978. Our first house had no electricity and no running water. It cost 18 dollars a month for the rent. Sherry washed all our clothes on a scrub board and that happened most of our first four years in Mexico.

Sherry has never complained about the conditions or the hardships we faced along the way. Three daughters and 32 years later, I am happy to say that she continues to help me and encourage me as we serve the Lord together.

Thank you Lord for my wonderful wife and thank you Sherry for your unconditional love. I am truly blessed!
