This didn't happen today, but last week I was pleasantly surprised by a visit from Lester's son. Hadn't seen him in at least 15 years.

Who hadn't you seen in 15 years, Lester or his son?

And they found Mary and Joseph and the baby wrapped in swaddling clothes...

Lester's son. Used to be in the same class in school, tho he was 2 grades ahead of me.

And I'm really trying to understand how my sentence was less than clear...

It was a poor attempt on my part at humor. It is a common occurrence in the English language that allows you to transpose the subjects of a sentence... Were Mary & Joseph also wrapped in swaddling clothes? :mrgreen:

OK. Sorry I missed the humor! If my sarcasm filter hadn't kicked in my reply would have been more like "I never mentioned Lester, only his son. Think about it!"

Look out Josh, I had a man at our church today try to tell me that the Independent Baptist churches are the one true church. :lol:

In seriousness though despite his constant struggle with nervousness this was the handicapped man in our church wanting to talk and rather by the end of our conversation I believe that I got the impression that he was trying to encourage us and was concerned about us eventually leaving again. He battled addiction and suicide attempts before he was introduced to Christ and the gospel from the Pastor. Glad to see he has a place to come as he lives alone in welfare housing in the roughest part of town.

Today (well actually tomorrow) we start the rebuilding process with MDS at Constance Bay, Ontario as the first condemned house is to be demolished. It will be a little out of my comfort zone as I will be the only Mennonite on the site, facing TV crews and other media. This is not normal fare for an old old order man like myself. :D Starting some time mid December, we hope to have volunteer feet on the ground, getting a frame up and the 2 houses closed in before the worst of winter hits.
