Raymond Reece passed away March 2nd.  He had many visitors in his last few days and was able to recognize and understand them.  Rachel and Emma were with him when he died.  There was a funeral at PG March 10th, which about 175 attended.   More than half were Spanish speaking, so the funeral was in both English and Spanish.  Raymond spent 55 years in the work in Mexico. The pamphlet in the upper right corner of this page gives more details.  Here’s Raymond and the workers that spoke or prayed at the funeral, LeRoy, Loren, Alan and Lyle.

Dad (Jack Newman) has gone down hill recently.  He moved from his house on the farm into the residence in March.  We are in the process of getting his house ready to rent.  If anyone knows someone who might want to live in a house here at PG, please let us know!

There were 3 birthdays in March.  John turned 92, Salena 25, and Lety 30.  Marcos and Lety are expecting a son in April, so Lety won’t be working for a while.  We have hired 2 part-time employees at the residence, Abigail Hoffman (who lives on the farm) and Kashaunna Edwards.

Samuel and Conchita came to Raymond’s funeral.  It was wonderful to see them again.  Deanna Smith (NH) visited Fern.  June and Terry Stafford (LA) visited Gilbert.

Colin and Hannah Ruan and their children came for a visit.  Colin has worked with us in the past.  Melinda Yule and Stacy Seidlitz (LA) came to see Gilbert.  Lori Cortez and Andrea Harris (Round Rock, TX) and their children came to visit and fish.

Jananne, Kent and Sharon Chappell visited from NH.  Gail Townsend (Katy, TX), Kent and Addie Johnson (CO) visited.  Clyde and Murlene Corneille (LA) visited Gilbert and John.

Elton’s daughter Cheryl Hutchinson (WA) is here for a visit.  Ty’s parents, Gary and Sharon Nordic (CO), and daughter Shanaye, are here also for Easter weekend.

Marybelle loves to feed the Hoffman’s animals.  We didn’t have as many wild flowers this year, but there were some.  We had 5 1/2 inches of rain in one day this week causing some minor flooding.  We’ve had three 500 year storms in the last three years!
