Greetings from Capps. So glad for the gorgeous weather earlier this  week. We saw some crocus blooming and heard the spring peepers near Capps, a sure sign that Spring is on it's way. Our plans to attend the Valentines banquet put on buy Capps Full Gospel were interrupted by a structure fire last Monday night on Twin Stone Lane in Batavia. Myself and a few other firefighters are nursing injuries so we requested mutual aid from Harrison Fire Department, which promptly sent us some much needed manpower. It's nice to know that there are other departments that have your back when you need them.  We try to be there when other people need us as well. Due to the challenging driveway, we had to set up our water supply tank on Highway 392 and close off one lane of traffic. It's refreshing to hear of the Revival fires that are burning on some college campuses lately. I'd like to believe that same fire is burning in the Capps Batavia area as people get hungry for a deeper relationship with Christ. I'd like to encourage you to, "Come and see" for yourself.  Blessings, Doug more

Greetings from Sayre, Oklahoma, huh? As of this writing, we were working our way back home from Albuquerque, New Mexico, where we visited my mother briefly. Prior to that, we were in Denver, Colorado, where I performed my son's wedding ceremony last Sunday. Needless to say, 2500 miles and a week later, we're bushed. There was plenty of action while we were gone starting with a structure fire between Capps and Batavia that the department responded to last Thursday night. I heard the blow by blow from my motel room in Salina, Kansas, thanks to our new app. Some of the crew didn't make it home until well after midnight. There also a couple vehicle accident calls in Capps and on Highway 65. We heard from our farmsitter friends that the heavens opened frequently, adding to our mud totals. Hopefully we won't return to farm animals floating down the ravine. Remember to let that special someone know how much you love them this Valentines Day. Blessings, Doug more
Steve Smith taught the adult Sunday School class last Sunday morning at Restoration Life. He did a great job teaching and sharing his story of deliverance. My sisters, Janice Harris and Lee Hankins, had lunch together at one of the Mexican restaurants in town one day this week. We very seldom get to spend much time together so that was a real treat. Our brother, Lynn “Bud” Smith had to spend a few days in the hospital due to some hart issues and water on his lungs. He has been able to come home but still has to have treatment for the water issue. more
