~God's Bible School Homecoming #2~

On Saturday, my Phillip needed to work on our house, so I GOT REALLY BRAVE and went out alone for the first time with our 5 children (Mary was only 10 days old). I really wanted to go to Homecoming on Saturday since they were going to honor the 50 year graduates (My Moma was one) and they were going to do more honoring of Bro. Wolf and Sis. Wolf. The Lord helped me and I made it through...and ENJOYED the day! Here are some pics for you to enjoy!
~I took this pic a long ways off...but it is Rachelle Wolf, Sarah Wolf Fry, and Deanna Wolf Mander playing a beautiful violin trio for offertory Saturday morning.~ ~This year was 50 years since my Moma graduated from GBS high school. Here is a picture of her class from 1960. (She's the only lady in the picture and Dad Sankey is to her left.)~
~My Moma is very good at preserving things. She is wearing her original GBS sweater that she would have worn 50 years ago. WOW!~
~Kevin Moser was going to take the picture below this picture...but then he needed to be in it...so Pres. Avery took the picture. =)~

~Bro. Wolf with the teachers that have taught music.~
~My sweet parents!~
~Kimberly and I enjoying homecoming!~
~We music majors got to honor Bro. and Sis. Wolf and spend some special time with them. First, we did a GBS Music major time line. They put up markers with each year and the names of those who graduated with a music degree in that year. Those of us who attended homecoming found our marker and stood by it. Then, the Wolfs walked by and greeted each of us. These girls graduated a year after I did, but we had a lot of classes together, so we posed for a quick pic.~
~A fun music majors picture! (I'm on the Left, on the second row.)~
~We gave Bro. Wolf 2 neat frames with the words "A Charge to keep I have" on one, and "A God to Glorify" on the other. Bro. Wolf's picture is in the middle, and then there are LOTS of music notes around the edges, and each music note holds a music major's photo. Sis. Karen Mills made these and did a beautiful job.~
~We had a great 2 hours together...just the music majors and the Wolfs. We laughed together and then we sang "Great is thy Faithfulness" and WEPT and praised God together. We asked Bro. Wolf to pray over all of us one more time, (Like he used to pray over us in the big bus on tours) ,and we wept some more. Then we had a yummy nice reception. It was a special time that I will cherish for a long time. ~
Then I went home to try to recoop and regroup after 2 BUSY days, and to get ready for another busy day. Baby Mary went to church for the first time on Sunday, October 10th. (11 days old)

Thank you for sharing this post! What a special time for the music majors and the Wolfs! My sister, mom, and I were sitting on her back porch on that Saturday and heard the beautiful singing, but had no idea what was taking place inside the building. It was so good to see you and your beautiful family at Homecoming. Baby Mary is an angel. You are blessed!

How neat that your Moma still had that sweater and could still wear it. She is the neatest lady I know. I'm so happy she is my friend. That sure was a nice celebration. So glad you could attend, love you tons
