World Class Fisherman: Fish fall for my line every time.
Early to bed, Early to rise, Golf all day, Make up lies.
If it wasn't for flashbacks, I'd have no memory at all.
Middle age spread: The waist of time.
Good idea for a highway billboard: 'YOU ARE NOT WATCHING THE ROAD.'
Old barbers never die, they just can't cut it like they used to.
One wonders if the man who invented lifesavers really made a mint?
A desk is a wastepaper basket with drawers.


One Sunday the pastor announced he was passing out miniature crosses
made of palm leaves. "Put this cross in the room where your family
argues most," he advised. "When you look at it, the cross will
remind you that God is watching."

As a woman walked up to the pastor, shook his hand and said, "I'll
take five."

On Monday we begin our 28th Annual Lighthouse Campmeeting in
We hope that you make your plans to be with us. We will have great
singing, preaching, eating, and fellowship. There are dorm style
bunk beds available and we provide great food and plenty of it. Our
theme this year is APPRECIATION. We want to show our appreciation to
the many pastors and friends that make the Lighthouse ministry
possible. See you there.

At the Lighthouse in Costa Rica we are preparing for the government
test. These tests are given twice a year and they are very
important. The tests must be passed before you can be promoted to
the next level. Please pray for our students as they prepare for
these crucial test.
