Hey friends, this is Odie reporting in on our last scheduled Saturday in Hodgenville, Kentucky. Wow, I cannot believe it has been a month since we came to HPC. The time we have spent with the congregation of HPC and Pastor David Webb and family has been extraordinary! They have treated us just like part of their family! It will be hard leaving our friends here.
Thank you to everyone at HPC for welcoming us with open arms! This will be one of the highlights of our year. We have made many great memories in this short month and we will treasure new friendships that will last a lifetime.
One of the families that we have come to love in our time here is the Hawkins Family.
It has been amazing to watch God work in this family this month. Bro. Austin has some serious health problems yet they are singing as a family and praising God through it all. They are facing some scary uncertainties right now but they are trusting God to walk with them!
I am expecting to hear great news in the near future! Until we receive that news, please pray for Bro. Austin, Sis. Janice and their precious daughters. I know from experience you can NEVER have too many people praying for you.
Thursday night was a special night at HPC. It was graduation banquet 2017. Mom and I were able to take part in the celebration. The theme for this year's graduation banquet was "A Sweet Ending To A New Beginning".
Several people in the church worked very hard to decorate the fellowship hall beautifully and prepare lots of sweets for a dessert buffet! The fellowship hall looked wonderful and every dessert I tried was amazing!
There were four seniors taking part in the banquet. Each of the seniors had a table decorated for them.
Mom provided beautiful background music for the evening.

Just a sample of the sweet temptations served.
After dessert it was time for a word from the seniors.
Then a word from Pastor Webb. All the speeches had us laughing and crying. It was a special evening.

Thank you for reading. I hope you have a fantastic weekend. I am excited about this coming week. If everything goes according to plan, the house being built for me to live in should be framed in a few days. Please helps us pray the rain holds off as needed.
