  • Sunrise volunteers - May 3, 2017

    How wonderful it is to go to Sunrise Manor and see lingering smiles of our Spring Revival held April 19-21. Our residents were challenged by our speakers, Bro. Mike Williams, Bro. Billy Curle and Bro. Richard Binkley. They were also filled with joy with the messages of truth and love from God’s Word.

    A special thanks to all the family members, visitors and volunteers that came out each evening to encourage and support our residents. May God bless you all.

    Respectfully submitted,

    Obediah Okeson

    Thought for the week: Life is like a 10-speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never used - Charles Schulz.

    Prom was this past weekend. I loved seeing all the prom pictures on Facebook. I can’t believe that it is May already and it is time for the Derby. I haven’t picked out a horse yet, but the one I pick out will probably join all my other ones, which are still running.

    May is going to be a busy month for me. It’s my birthday month plus lots of other activities planned
