San Diego and Church

Saturday we left early to go down to San Diego for the day.

David had a meeting with his 50th High School Reunion committee for Hoover High School, where he graduated in 1962.  Their reunion is set for September 2012 and plans are being formed.  Prior to that meeting in La Mesa where we dropped him off, we went with him to a violin repair shop so he could get some input and opinion about his violin that he bought while in high school  It is an instrument that was made in England in 1803.  It has some heat damage and needs restoration.

After the violin shop, we took some time to go up to the Point Loma Lighthouse.  It is located on the national park grounds where the explorer Cabrillo sailed and first stepped on land in what is now California.  It was a gorgeous day, with sunshine and breeze.  For lunch, we went to the landmark Chicken Pie Shop, a restaurant diner that opened in 1940 in downtown San Diego.

Yesterday was Sunday.  Our church air conditioner did not get repaired in time, so we had an abbreviated worship service.  We sang one song, and then I preached the morning message.  After about 40 minutes, we dismissed.  We asked the congregation to gather on the stage to take a group picture for me to take to England for our mission trip.  We will then be able to show a picture of those in our church who are praying for them (in the U.K.) as they serve the Lord there.  It was a good day.
