I know how people hate old grandparents showing off pictures of their children but sometimes I just have to.Â I love being your pastor and having the privilege of working with you but I desperately want you to know my family and how God has blessed us.Â Our daughter, Joy, just sent us some pictures and I wanted to share them with you.Â
This Benjamin and Lelia Soncco sitting on a ledge outside their house in Arequipa, Peru.Â
This is a little Mrs. Betty.Â I think she has to be one of the most beautiful little girls in the world because she looks so much like the most beautiful woman in the world which is my loving wonderful wife of over 33 years now.
There she is Betty Jr. with that cute little face that captured my heart so long ago.Â
I realize that it isn’t that interesting to see pictures of the grandkids so I try to keep it to a minimum but you are the people that I most love in the world and so I want you to see the others that I most love in the world.Â I want you to know my family.Â I thank God for His rich blessings on my life and on the lives of my children and grandchildren.Â I thank God for you.
I look forward to seeing you tomorrow and to seeing what great things that God has for us.Â I hope you will get there early with some guests. I pray that God will bless you richly through the Sunday School classes and also through the preaching in the morning.Â Don’t forget that I will be preaching on How to fight in two parts tomorrow and I don’t think that you are going to want to miss it.Â Thank you for allowing us to love you.
