As I prepare this, my weekly info and church bulletin, we have almost made it through the first week of September. Days are getting shorter and the evenings are a bit cooler. I hope everyone is adjusting and preparing to enjoy the fall season.
Be in prayer for the Social Committee as they prepare the Cold Plates for those who have pre-ordered them. Thank you to all who have supported this fundraiser by buying a meal and to everyone who donated food and are helping out.
A few of the men are continuing with the upgrades to the downstairs area of the original church. The office is nearing completion and a storeroom is in the process of being built.
A special thanks goes out to the men who have worked most of the year building and renovating BRE Baptist Church. We are able to enjoy the facility we have at present due to the support and hard work done by the members of our congregation.
A BIT OF HUMOUR:
There are several men in the locker room of a private club after exercising. Suddenly a cell phone that was on one of the benches rings. A man picks it up and the following conversation ensues:
"Hello?" "Honey, It's me." "Sugar!" "Are you at the club?"
"Yes." "Great! I am at the mall 2 blocks from where you are. I saw a beautiful mink coat... It is absolutely gorgeous!! Can I buy it?" "What's the price?" "Only $1,500.00" "Well, OK, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much..." "Ahhh and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the 2020 models. I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the salesman and he gave me a really good price ... and since we need to exchange the BMW that we bought last year..."
"What price did he quote you?" "Only $60,000..." "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options." "Great!, before we hang up, something else..." "What?"
"It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account and...I stopped by the real estate agent this morning and I saw the house we had looked at last year ... it's on sale!! Remember? The one with a pool, English Garden, acre of park area, beachfront property..." "How much are they asking?" "Only $450,000... a magnificent price, and I see that we have that much in the bank to cover..." "Well, then go ahead and buy it, but just bid $420,000. OK?" "OK, sweetie... Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love you!!!" "Bye... I do too..."
The man hangs up, closes the phone's flap and raises his hand while holding the phone and asks to all those present: "Does anyone know who this phone belongs to?"
