Well it was beautiful day today and a great one to have Sunday service at Magnolia....It seemed that a steady stream of people were coming in the door to hear the Word of God being taught...We had just over 100 in attendance again today...Pastor Stacey had a great message today as usual teaching from the Book of James, Chapter 5, verses 19 and 20...The theme of the message was "Wanderers"....A lot of teaching and learning can be had in these few verses that can affect a great many for the word of God and his followers...We just need to further our understanding of the many things that God wants us as believers and followers of Christ to heed to and do...Study for yourselves when ever you can for the word is for all who are willing to learn...Continue to pray for all those that are sick and for solutions for all those that are troubled with some type of problems whether in sickness or financial needs...GOD BLESS ALL.....
John Kent passed away peacefully at the Aurora House Hospice Foundation on February 17th, 2011.
He was born June 23, 1926 in Freemont Michigan. He joined the army in 1944 as a member of the 96th Deadeye Division. He was wounded in the battle of Okinawa in 1945. He was transported back to Battle Creek Michigan for recovery and spent 2 1/2 years getting mended. It was there he met his wife of 64 years, Joan Plummer Kent. They were married November 30th, 1946.
John retired as assistant fire chief for the Emmet Township Fire Dept. in Battle Creek, in 1976. John and Joan are well known in the Rio Grande Valley as well as the Midwest because of their devotion to country and gospel music. They performed in a band called Kountry Kousins both in Michigan and the Rio Grande Valley for over 30 years.
John and Joan have been a big part of Magnolia Park as well. Our Tuesday Jam has always been very popular in large part due to their influence. John will be sorely missed. Joan plans to stay on here in Magnolia Park. She says it is home. She will take occasional trips back to Michigan.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her and their family.
On Feb. 11 , Milton Hennig and myself had the honor to represent the park to the bridge Mid-Valley Senior Winter Olympic ,we won all the games but came 5th . on high score. We were proud of our performance. We had only two hours of practice.We never had played together before.
This morning when we got to Allen Hall for Sunday Service I couldn't help smiling because of all the great attendance that Pastor Stacey is drawing at Magnolia....It makes a difference when the word of God is being taught and the people are learning and understanding what is being taught...We had just over a hundred in attendance this morning....Today was a continuance of the lessons that Pastor Stacey has been giving from the Book of John, Chapter 17....Today's lesson started with verse 20 with the theme of "All May Be One"...The lesson studies how Jesus prayed that all the believers are united as one under the power of God....A wonderful lesson and great to strengthen your faith...
Today also after the service, Eva and Floyd Foote were honored with cake and coffee for all that wished to partake....The happy couple were celebrating their 74th wedding anniversary...They are such a special couple and are loved by all....I was able to get a picture of the happy couple to put in the blog....HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Floyd and Eva...
Remember to continue to pray for all that are sick and need healing for we all need prayer at some time in our lives.....GOD BLESS ALL.....

A surprise going away party was held in the pool hall for Donna and Don Brandt. Donna said they were going back up north to build a snowman. We will miss their cheerful faces in many places in Magnolia Park.
What a great day today as the weather has finally broke loose and given us warm temperatures again....With the warm weather people were really willing to get out and attend Services at Magnolia....There were 100 in attendance this morning to hear Pastor Stacey's message and it was a great one as usual....The theme for today was "The Prayer of Jesus" taken from the Book of John Chapter 17....This is a continuing study of the prayer of Jesus for his disciples and us as his followers.....Pastor brought out many things that we should study and think on as we read the Word of God in our studies of the bible....It was also brought out that continuing prayer should be in our lives for all that are sick that we know of....Continuing prayer will keep us on the right path in the ways of the Lord....GOD BLESS ALL.....
We are one of the oldest parks in the valley and within walking distance of the famous Don-Wes Flea Market. Along with being one of the oldest we also have the wonderful reputation for being a friendly and active park. We have an association of members who give generously of their time in a myriad of ways to make coming to the Rio Grande Valley each winter a whole bunch of fun for everyone. So come on down and have fun with us!!!
