Yankee’s Traveling Update with Texas Friends
Ralph “Yankee” Arnold
We left Wally and Jane in Pharr, drove about 600 miles and was ready to have a great relaxing evening with Charlie and Karen Bing in Burleson, Texas. We also got to meet his beautiful daughter, Laurie. Charlie is a missionary of Calvary Community Church of Tampa and preaches a solid clear gospel around the world. His home is in the prettiest spot we have seen in Texas.
We did not really want to eat this cake and ice cream, but we did not want to offend Charlie and his wife, so we ate it all up. I even licked the bowl; boy was it good. Celebrating our 60th anniversary at every stop is rough to do, but we will manage somehow. They did treat us to Texas Bar-B-Que Monday evening.
I asked Bob Wilkins and Shawn Lazar of Grace Evangelical Society to meet with me on Tuesday for breakfast in Flower Mounds, Texas. I wanted to talk to them about the conflicts we have in the contents of the gospel. I think we both enjoyed hashing over our differences but with little progress being made. They were both exceedingly kind, friendly and exhibited a loving spirit and they did pay for my breakfast.
Dave Adams (right) had his Pastor Warren Johnson and Florida Bible College grad, Danny O’Leary meet for lunch at Cracker Barrel North of Dallas. We enjoyed swapping stories while making new friends.
We men talked about the things of the Lord while the women went shopping. You should see how much money they saved us. Pauline will graduate from Florida Bible College of Tampa next year.
I had the privilege of speaking at Mike and Nancy McFarlin’s church (Lake Country Bible Church) last night in Mineola, Texas. They are also searching for a solid grace preacher to take their church. Mike conducted the funeral services for Dr. A. Ray Stanford back in 2012. Nancy goes back to the original Miami Christian Youth Ranch days of 1955 where she trusted the Lord. Betty and I enjoyed their fellowship. If interested in this pastorate call: Phones: 903-571-8738 (Mike Cell) Grand Saline, TX 75140.
Hoping to arrive in Denver by June 5th Friday night.
