Christmas is a wonderful time to get together with family and friends. One of the highlights this month was being invited to a preachers fellowship dinner by Pastor John Labins of Bible Baptist in Placerville, CA. We had a wonderful evening of laughter and festive joy in one of the church member’s home. We left the event encouraged and strengthened spiritually. I truly appreciate these men and their families as well as others that were not able to make it. I am grateful for these pastors and the churches as they serve as lighthouses to our dark state of California.
