Yarbro's Leading Annual Christian Dental Mission to Jamaica
Posted July 20, 2017

Jody and Nancie Yarbro left Saturday July 15 for their annual dental student mission trip to Jamaica.  Jody is leading the team trip that will have 26 dental students with them, and a total team of 36 people.  Their daughter and grandson are part of the team.  Several of the students received partial scholarships from WB Chapel. They are thankful for the support and prayers of the Chapel. 


Their mission trips are sponsored in part by the Chapel through the Global/National Mission Committee led by Vicki Thompson.   The financial support from the Chapel is used for supplies and in some cases to help students fund their travel expenses.  Jody is the Chapel liaison for this mission.  If you would like to know more about this mission or maybe volunteer to join them on future trips you can contact Jody.

On the Road Again


The End of the Road
Posted July 20, 2017

by Jim Browder

It was a sad day when Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus went out of business a few weeks ago. It made me think of Susie.

Susie was a nice girl...a little plump...but pleasant.

I first met Susie in downtown Fort Worth behind the old T&P Railroad Depot, on the other side of the tracks. She had a long nose, flat feet and wrinkled skin, but she was in show business--and that's all that mattered.

However, after a long walk together, I discovered that all Susie really wanted to do was drink a lot, and then hit the hay.

So I left her there with her friends...all of them drinking shamelessly.

Yep, they were drinking water out of 55-gallon drums and happily eyeing a couple of tons of hay on the other side of the fence. Susie, you see, was one of 18 elephants in town with the circus. I rode Susie from behind the T&P railroad station to Will Rogers Coliseum - a bumpy two and a half miles on a pleasant, but smelly beast.

What's it like riding an elephant? Well, it's dirty. The first thing elephants do upon being taken off the circus train is grab trunks full of local dirt and spray it on their backs. There is an odor, too, but after a while you don't notice it so much because you smell the same way.

You ride way up front on the elephant's head. The swaying motion can almost leave you seasick. The animal's lumbering gait keeps throwing your hips and pelvis into gyrations akin to Elvis Presley doing "Hound Dog." At the end of the trip you're all shook up.

It was a unique experience. Unfortunately, no one else will ever be able to enjoy riding a circus elephant like that. And no little kids can dream of running away to join the circus. You see, a group of activists forced the circus to stop using elephants.

Apparently, in today's politically-correct world it is unacceptable for elephants to be used for entertainment. So, when the elephants were gone, attendance plummeted and Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus was forced out of business. Hundreds of people lost their jobs. Pray for these workers and entertainers.

Today if you want to see world-class clowns in action you must visit Congress.

Getting back to the subject at hand, I wonder: Was Susie still there when the circus folded its tent? Maybe I should have checked it out. Nah, some say elephants never forget. She'd undoubtedly remember that I didn't even kiss her goodbye.

One thing we know for sure. God never forgets one of his own and as noted in Hebrews 8:12, He will "forgive our sins and remember them no more."

What We've Done


Men's Ministry Responds to an Urgent Need
Posted July 20, 2017

by Ron Williams

We received an urgent request to build a ramp for a man living near Covington who recently had his leg amputated due to diabetes complications.  So on Saturday July 8 several willing Men’s Ministry volunteers met at the warehouse in Whitney and pre-fabricated ramp framing modules.  Then on July 12 and 13 nine volunteers worked over two mornings to install an 81 foot ramp.  This was the 52nd ramp for our team, and the longest and most complicated. 

We pray it will be a blessing to the recipient.  The healthcare worker who applied for the ramp on their behalf said “You guys are such a blessing to those in need and I'm amazed at how quickly you were able to help him out... Thank you so much! God bless each of you.”
