Fingerprints

Congratulations everyone, our HUMC rummage sale took in over $3100 for our mission to Mexico! Here’s a side story on our merchandise.

At this time of year many grown men don rubber pants to ply the rivers in search of hungry trout. But not this man. This is the season to sit in the bow of a canoe with a fly rod while a fine friend paddles in the stern and offers a running stream of commentary, wisdom and advice. I always feel smarter by journey’s end even if the fish fail me. For scenery
