I had a wonderful day Sunday, our son and daughter in-law came down from Iowa to visit. we went over to The Happy Hill Church of God, to praise and worship Jesus with the family.
I love going to Happy Hill, Ron and his family have such a wonderful gift of music. The grand piano, organ, keyboards and choir of voices fill the church with a joyful noise that fills your soul.
If you like old time gospel or just love Jesus, then come with us next Sunday and sing along.
Ron Dunlap is a great pastor and plays the piano like nobody else. Ron has recently released an album entitled "Jesus, What a Friend". I had to buy a copy so I can listen during the week.
Here is a sample of Ron's music as recorded on his album
Hope to see you there! If you need directions please call the church at: 417-395-4346.
From Rich Hill; take MO-Y 4.1 miles, turn left go 1.8 miles, turn right go 2.3 miles and follow the signs to Happy Hill.
Bible study precedes services, there is a children's church also; so bring the whole family! We usually try to get there about 10:00 am.
If your looking for a place to worship in Bates County or just want to try something new, come on along; you'll be glad you did.
Come join us as we pray for our friends, family, community and America!
God it was a beautiful weekend, we hauled the camper down 71 HWY to our family farm on the River near Virginia, MO. Saturday after I had the water, electric and sewer hooked up I took the John Deere down to the bottom-land, where the River meets Walnut Creek.
The River and the creek were really swollen, going over the bridges near Nyhart we saw the Bates County Drainage Ditch was nearly to its limits too.
We lost yet another tree down by the river, seems we lose more trees each year than we can plant. I spooked up a young deer from the brush, watching that cotton white tail bouncing away made me long for deer season this Fall.
Saturday was hot, muggy and we saw a bit of rain, I snapped a few pics of the flooded creek, I took a picture of the deer I spooked up, but he didn't show up well in the photos.
Sunday was breezy at first, but the heat was getting more intense when we got out of church. I love visiting the Happy Hill Church of God, Pastor Ron and his wife raise the roof with some of the best old time gospel music I've ever heard. I look forward to going there when I can. Fathers Day is one of those special occasions. After church we headed on into Butler, MO for Dinner.
One of our favorite places to eat Sunday dinner is the Flaming Lantern in Butler, MO. We usually try to get a spot near the fireplace.
Driving the gravel roads of Bates County, MO I sure saw a lot of flooding. A fortunate few had managed to get some crops in, but so much of the Bates County Farmland was flooded and simply too wet to plow.
Some of the cropland in Bates County looked like it had been planted before it was flooded, darn shame all those good crops under water. Bates County has some very productive, rich soil, but when the floods come, there's an awful lot of damage.
Guess we can look forward to a great harvest of some winter wheat.
Anyhow, if we can help you with your find any hunting land, cropland or a home on the range in KS or MO
, give us a holler. 816-313-8876.
