Cambridge Senior Chatter Success by Janice Vuich Cawyer -- 257-3358 It seems so strange to see the empty fairgrounds now, when just a week ago there were crowds all day long and into the evening hours. But once a year, that's how it is in Cambridge when its time for the Washington County Fair. There were lots of food vendors, more than I think I've seen in past years; the smells were delicious. As you know we had a BBQ Pulled Pork dinner at the Senior Center on Friday night during the Fair, and I must say Jack Coburn's BBQ pork was the best I've ever had. Many thanks to our faithful volunteers who helped ensure that this dinner was a success: Bill Noah, Paul Radasch, Beth Bramble, Dan and Glenda Castleberry, Charlie Caruso, Ed Hargis, Virginia Seid and Wilfred and Maxine Fox. Thank you all for your help! We served around 80 folks, including the band members who really rocked the place with their country music. I do so appreciate their willingness to provide music for our fundraisers. I had heard many people weren't able to come to the dinner because of the fire out on Cow Creek, which was a big topic of conversation that evening. Thankfully our volunteer fire department and fire departments from other locations responded and it was put out rather quickly. We are fortunate to have local individuals who volunteer their time in service to" their community. We are in need of a volunteer to deliver meals to our Meals on Wheels people in Midvale on Friday's. If you can help, please give me a call at 257-3358. Our monthly shopping Pastor's Corner by Les Sheneberger This past week our family was traveling back to Idaho from a family reunion in Northern Minnesota. As I was stopped for a rest break in Dickinson, ND, I noticed our back tire was low. I filled it up and heard a hissing sound. We had caught a nail in the tire! It was Saturday afternoon and all of the tire stores were closed by then. We went over to the Walmart tire with the nail in the" shoulder of it, but could replace it with a new one. As you can imagine my blood pressure started going up due to this unexpected event: When he told me it could be up to a four hour wait, I started trying to think of other options, but there really weren't any. I went for short walk outside and prayed. I needed patience. I also needed the Lord's THOMPSON FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORY Family Owned axial Operated tire center.

It says in God's Word, "May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind- toward each other that Christ Jesus had toward each Other that Christ Jesus had." (Romans 15:5) Jesus often took time during his journeys to stop and talk with people who needed his help. We thought to make the most of the time. Amy took the He is still in control and provided me with his patience. He helped me discover the hole in the one place and time during that part of our trip that we could receive the help we needed. The next major city was hundreds of miles away. He provided a cool place for us to wait with the kids. He had put our family on someone's heart to get us those thoughtful gift cards. We were inconvenienced, but it girls shopping for a toy. A would have been far worse. family friend had given each of the kids a gift certificate for Walmart, so that kept them busy for a while. James and I hu,ng out together on a bench by the checkout lines. It was good to spend a little time with him. In the end, it only took about two hours before we were On the road again. God taught me that We could have been stuck on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere trying to fix a flat tire and then been forced to stay in North Dakota for the weekend where all of the hotel rooms are booked. I thanked the clerk and told him we were fortunate to have found them open. I thanked God for giving me his perspective!
