The Skidmores recently took a 10-day trip to their old home area near Los Angeles. They went to attend a reunion of some of "Skid's" longtime fellow workers of the City of Los Angeles.
It was a joyful occasion to renew old acquaintances and relive old times and adventures.
They visited Harold's brother, Dan, and Juandeane's two brothers, Max and C.J., and their families. They also spent time with their daughter and husband, Teresa and Roy Furutani, and their children Sara and Rachel.
Pastor Lonnie Burbank had the help of Aaron Burbank and Dan Hayes at the Oct. 7 worship service at Pedee Evangelical Memorial Church. He showed the short video of the "World Harvest Mission Offering" in preparation for the Oct. 21 Evangelical Church Mission offering.
A nice surprise was Teresa Jahn Gitomer from Charlotte, N.C., playing the organ and piano for all the singing and services. She was visiting her sister, Linda Chertudi and family in Salem, and they brought her to the service. Also attending was Teresa's sister, Pam Dalton, and Maurice and Lois of Dallas.
The pastor's message, "Do You Love Me" was from scripture readings of John 13:12-17 and 33-35: Jesus set the example, and our hearts must be right as we serve.
