Comment from Bette Manning:

Your trip certainly tops our trip, but your trip reminds me of one of ours.
We had been married for 6 months. Bill had just graduated from dental
school in Memphis, TN. He had to report for his Navy physical in New
Orleans on a Monday morning. Some friends of ours married on Sunday night
and we both were in the wedding. Just like you—young and foolish—we left
Memphis after the 8:00 p.m. wedding on Sunday night to be in New Orleans
for his 8:00 am Navy physical Monday morning.

Unlike you, we had a brand new Pontiac convertible—no problem—right!! As
we were driving through the state of Mississippi, on the two lane highway
(no interstates back in 1955), our headlights suddenly went out. At that
time, Mississippi did not have ‘fence laws’—-which means that
cattle/livestock were not confined to their fields, but were free to go out
on the highway, if they so desired!!! Young and foolish kept on
driving—-trying to see whether there were cows on the highway. We could
not stop, for we HAD to be in New Orleans at 8:00 a.m. The Military does
not take excuses for missing appointments! Every so often, the headlights
would come back on and then go out again.

We know that the Good Lord helped us navigate through the cows on the road.
I guess they thought the grass on the other side of the highway was
greener. We also learned that cows do not always sleep at night, for there
were many roaming on the highway!!! It was a much slower trip than we had
anticipated, but we did arrive safely in N.O.!!! We quickly found a motel,
Bill took a shower, changed clothes and I took him for his physical—-no
sleep.

My assignment was to find a car dealership to find out why our headlights
went off and on. They discovered that there was a short in the light
switch on the front panel. Bill has very long legs and when he would shift
his position, his knee would hit the switch and the lights would go
out——later he would change positions again, his knee would hit the switch
and the lights would come back on. They repaired the switch, Bill passed
his physical, and then we proceeded to Parris Island, S.C. where he
reported at the Marine Base for his temporary duty, and we had headlights
all of the way there!

It was a stressful trip, but Youth is wonderful!!!!
Thanks for letting me stroll down memory lane. With God’s guidance, we
both made our trips without harm!! Thanks be to God!!

Comment from Roger Luther:

What an exciting time at FBC. New Home/Community Groups are being formed, Sunday morning discipleship (Sunday School) is healthy and adding new classes (1500 adult participants last Sunday) and the Timothy Initiative A Term has jumped out to a fantastic start with 213 people in classes this week. Thank you, Lord.
