I am the Pastor/Teacher of Rivers of Joy Baptist Church in Minford, Ohio since August 2008.  I am married to Charity since June 14, 1969.  I have four grown children.   Having served in the local church for over forty years as Pastor/Teacher, Asso., Youth Pastor, Minister of Education, Building Upkeep, Camp Director, Sunday School Teacher, etc. Also I have worked in the public place for as many years as I have preached. Charity and her sister are co owner of Union Mills Conf. (Bakery) in West Portsmouth Ohio

Lumberjack Charles

We have been working on our new place for the last month, I am beginning to believe that sore is normal.  Working as a lumberjack has been out of my league for sure. But I hope I am doing good to save $1200 on this project.

Charity has been working on the inside of the house, arranging the rooms.  The house itself was in perfect condition when we moved in. That is the second  (first time  was in Connersville, IN when the church build us a brand new house never before lived in)  house that we have every moved in to a house that did not need fixing up.

This is the view when we moved.

 I know some say that the growth of the trees and vines are good, and to a degree that would be right, but after 30 years of growth of vines its a little too much for me.







Charity took these pix yesterday of this lumber jack. 

Below are the view after the work yestersday






Well, really I am only having a little work out.  We really enjoy the place we are living too.

Charity loves to set a nice dinner table, and the food she has is wonderful too.
