April meeting notes

We had a great meeting starting with devotions lead by Vaughn. Our featured verse was Mark 1:35-37. Giving up things for Lent reminds us how Jesus gave us His life, so giving up pleasures for a short time helps us prepare for the Crucifixion.

Vaughn giving devotions and River Dan visiting with us

River Dan shared how his Grandma and Mom refused to stop praying for him daily and how he came to know Jesus while in maximum security in Prison. Dan also shared how his shoes became famous while being on Billy Grahams security detail. We heard how he was saved from freezing in the river after being thrown from his boat in the winter. 

He then shared about his knowledge of Handlining that started in the 1920s on the Detroit River. He shared some of his favorite lures, colors and techniques for how to fish the river. River Dan is a great river fisherman and was very entertaining.

Remember that the May meeting is going to take place at the Spring Outing.
