Pine Grove Happenings 8/23/2021

Sunday, August 22nd Joys:
Hilda Snuggs – I want to thank all the women of the church who provided a wonderful and beautifully presented meal for my sister-in-law’s, Betty Ruth Burleson’s, family.
Bonnie Burleson – Along with Hilda, I would like to thank all those who helped with the Betty Ruth Burleson meal.
Also, we fed the West Stanly High School Football team on  Friday. There were about 50 people in all and I would like to thank all those who helped prepare and serve that meal too! The Team and Coach were very appreciative.
Pastor Ron – Jonathan had three more tests scheduled at Duke last week and two were completed.  The third was postponed to this Wednesday and if it all goes well we hope and pray he will be added to the transplant list within 48 hours after results are in.
