Return from the Holy Land

    Plantersville News

I have returned from Egypt and Israel and it was an experience of a lifetime. I really appreciate what my eyes have seen, and ears have heard. It was a group of 97 people, the largest group for radio station Gospel 1360.

I met new family and friends on the trip. It was amazing to walk the same places that Jesus walked over 2,000 years ago. We experienced many of the places the Bible speaks about. The tour guide was knowledgeable in every detail. Their security was very tight and strict in all parts we visited. I think their security is much stricter than ours. I didn’t see a dirt or rock road anywhere. Even the places underground was paved or bricked. Thanks for all your prayers.

Attention BlackBerry community residents, the county engineer informed me via email they had a meeting and are in the process of hiring an engineer to design the project for our roads. Hallelujah on every aspect of this news. Our roads are long overdue for improvements or upgrades. Thanks Mr. Harry Walker for all you’ve done to improve our roads.
