The Last 'Chili' Supper

Last evening was the 'Last Supper for the Archer Adoption' and was so well attended, it was amazing! I'm guessing 300 folks! Others said the same amount. It was impossible to get a count! But there were still folks we didn't see, some who had said they would be there, but for one reason or another didn't show up. It was a great time!

Connie, how many bowls of chili did you eat? It was very good!

Armon joined some kids playing a game in the south fellowship hall.

These good looking young men are all members of a Northwood University fraternity! They were the only folks dressed up and, boy, did they look good!

A small portion of the line waiting for food. The line went clear down the hall, through the double doors, and beyond! It moved fast though!
Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful evening yesterday. The folks who turned out were amazing! Thank You for the reason for the supper. Thank You for the way folks have rallied for Rob and Jessica, Armon and Elmise.
