I had a lovely day yesterday, visiting with an old friend and her mother. Karen invited me to an event at her church. The Lieutenant Governor David Onley and his wife Ruth-Ann are members there and they had been invited to speak yesterday morning.
He has an inspiring story but talked mainly about the time around his appointment last summer and what it had meant for him and his family. His wife is a Christian gospel singer and she also spoke briefly and sang a few numbers.
The event was hosted by the church’s pastor, and the morning opened with some gorgeous music by the HiMiG Gospel singers, a group from the Philippines who call this congregation their home base and act as the church’s choir. The event wrapped up with a delicious hot lunch for 150 prepared by the pastor’s wife.
