Highlights and Old Pictures :))

Here are the pictures of my Grampa and Gramma Wakefield. 
My Grampa and Gramma started the church in Anderson, CA in 1968. Bro. Green is the pastor there now. 
Awww :) Look at my dad!! And look at my Gramma's hair!! Heehee :))

My Grampa :) 

Bethany, Sis. Yeary, and Nicole. 
Elder and Sis. Wakefield won Sis. Yeary to God years ago and when we went to the Green's church a few weeks ago, she brought a bunch of pictures from when the Wakefields were pastoring. It was really neat to see!!

(This is when the button fell off my jacket, for everyone's information :)
On our way back down to Mexico on Thursday, we were all talking about which churches we liked the most.
We all had different responses, but I think my favorite service was the one in Anderson with the Greens.  
They have a beautiful church, and we had an awesome move of the Holy Ghost!! The people worshiped in a way that was so beautiful and the Spirit of God was moving. It just felt good!
After church Sis. Yeary told us stories about my dad (she used to babysit him and his sisters). 
Then they brought out this basket FULL of food. For a couple weeks, this is what went on when after we had been driving for hours:
Person #1: "I'm bored."
Person #2: "Let's eat!"
Then we'd dig into the Green's basket...or the Marchbanks' basket(s) [more on them later!;] and chow down!

We were with the Olivers in El Paso, Texas for our last few days in the US. 
We went over to their son and daughter-in-law's (Jeff and Nancy) house one evening and Nicole had me taste the coffee that Nancy made. At first I was pushed it away and said, "I hate coffee, you know I'm not going to like it!"
But Nicole said, "JUST TASTE IT!" So I did and....WOWSERZ! 
It was so good! Here's a picture of this momentous moment: 

**Please do not think that if your church doesn't make in onto the blog, I don't like you!! LOL!
Remember my camera got stolen WITH a lot of un-downloaded pictures.**

I vividly remember having this picture taken in front of the Anderson church when Dad (Grandpa Wakefield to you) changed the name of the church to New Life Fellowship.

So you're all back in Mexico now? For some reason, I thought you would all stop by since you were so close.

I enjoyed looking at the pictures. Looks like you had a wonderful time.

Take Care, Aunt Corena
