The children gathered before Rod to hear his message to them. Then he spoke not only to the children but to all who would listen. He told of one who was healed after washing in the muddy Jordan. Could he have been healed elsewhere? More than likely. Reliev- ing us of our sins will open the doors of heaven. Welcome guests of themorn- ing were Charles and Joy HellBr, Kirk and Kathy Holliday, Clair and Mary Sloan. Fellowship followed. "l'his Is My Story." Lila Frost and Theresa Sholtz passed their 4th of July helping granddaugh- ter and d0ughter get her house near Long Island ready for occupancy. She will be living near the Northern Valley School where she will be teaching in the fall. They returned Wednesday and continued to work on Megan's house. A fish fry benefit for Scott Marihugh is in the planning stage. The event will be Saturday, 5 to 7 p.m., at the Esbon Community Center, sponsored by Sam's Place and other community friends. Paul Frost, Concordia, and Carter White, Belleville, visited Thursday with grandparents, John and Lila Frost. As mentioned earlier, this area has received good rains. As I write this twice in less than a week we have been fortunate in receiving rain. Last Satur- day night amounts received and re- ported were Gale Burgess 1.40, John Frost in town .91, Eula Silsby 1.05, and mine in town 1 inch, Early Thursday morning the amounts some received were Eula Silsby 1.50, Dwight Frost 1.50, Larry McNabb 2., Wayne Frost 1.90, Wayne Broeckelman 2.50, Vir- ginia Alexander .65 and Shawn Frost .55. Lindy Broeckelman, daughter of Mike and Sharla Broeckelman, Beloit, and granddaughter of Wayne and Joan, has accepted the job of teaching first grade in a Topeka elementary school. Shannon White and Mike Stouffer have been working on the deck at the home of John and Lila Frost. Burdette Callaway is working at the new Loves Station and Conve- nience Store in Belleville. Carol and Chug Fogo and Glenna Fogo met Wednesday evening at a restaurant in Mankato. For the 4th of July the American flags were put up along Grand Street. Putting "Old Glory" out were Barb Mizner and Dave Hastings. Taking them down Tuesday was Pam Hajny. The Esbon Volunteer firemen ar- rived at the firehouse last Tuesday evening where they held their monthly meeting and were served a rib meal prepared by Bill Allen. Rumor has it that Tim and Laura Benoit have sold their place of busi- ness outside of Glen Elder. Monte Manning, who has been sta- tioned at San Antonio since entering the service, has been deployed for over- seas duty. Monte's parents, Daphne and Dennis, were in the Texas city last week where they had time with their son and his family before he left for his new duty. During harvest, Anastasia Willitts is working atthe Midway Co-op eleva- tor in Mankato. A good name is more desirable then great riches. Wheat harvest is finished at the Sloan farm and the other fields which are controlled by Shawn Frost, so Sat- urday morning Clair and Mary Sloan headed for their home in Hart, Mich. Johnnie and Janice Griffin, Mis- souri, were in the cafe Saturday visit- ing with friends. The Griffins for sev- eral years came to this area to hunt and at one time owned a home in Esbon where they could stay when here. While making a short drive Satur- day I was admiring the beautiful corn fields Even saw one field that was tasseling. "God of Grace, God of Glory." Everyone who entered the Esbon United Methodist Church Sunday morning was greeted at the door by Gale Burgess. Janet Kriley and Wanda Thummel were the musicians. The Gillett boys and Walker girls served as acolytes. Guests were Charles and Joy Heller. Pastor Gerry Sharp spoke to the children as they gathered in front of him and said to them "practice makes perfect," and that applies as we live Christian lives and practice as Chris- ates Wasteco @ Welcomes you to the Jewell County Threshing Bee, July 16 and 17 Reliable Service at Fair Price Billing Home 785-794-2256 Cell 785-534-7212 785-378-3006 Available for Special Service as Needed, Auctions, Remodels and More...

Lila Frost in laer special read a Billy Graham story where he was hon- oring Einstein. At the end, Billy said"I don't always know who I am but I do know where I'm going." Pastor Gerry chose his message "what is a plumb?" He read 10 verses from Amos 7. "Plumb is the unit of measurement that has been around for many years." Pastor showed the congregation a "plumb." God' s word is exact as a plumb line, in our lives. What is truth? We all iden- tify it differently, as what is right with us. The plumb line theory can be used in many ways. Christians must stand in the gap, if not physically but in prayer. The Gillett boys Derreck and Jerrod served as ushers. A joy mentioned was that Sam Gillett's surgery on his knee is over, was successful, and he now is ready for therapy. Also mentioned was that the Marihugh family is happy with Scott's progress. This church group went to the basement where they greeted those that had come from the Catholic Church and they all had time of fellowship together. "Marching to Zion." I had a nice Sunday morning visit with Judy Donley as she stopped here following her church activities. Nelson Underwood brought his bucket calf project to this years Jewell County fair. His entry received the reserve grand champion in the class. Whitley Frost won the bucket calf grand champion ribbon at the 2016 Jewell County Fair.
