We want to share our exciting news that our son, Tom proposed to his girl friend in Jamaica recently. They will get married next year. We are so happy for them.
David went to Homecoming game in Jacksonville for his class reunion. He enjoyed there. He went to Jacksonville Lutheran church on Sunday. Pastor Tom Phillips was happy to see him again.
We volunteered to paint someone's house from Lutheran Immanuel church in Palatine that had Paint-A-Thon organization. Betty Jo, Paul, & Bill were there too. It was a good feeling for us to be involved to help painting. There were other hearing members from the church to help too even two pastors helped too. The owner of the house was very happy and served us some food and drinks.
Our church interpreter had to move to a different state because of her husband being laid off from his job. Right now, we don't have an interpreter at our church. Hope to find one soon.
We still go to Lutheran church in Elgin on third Sunday where we had our deaf picnic this summer. It was fun. 35 people came. Dee still goes to church for quilting on Thursdays. Have a happy Fall. God bless all of you. David & Dee Mills.

On most 2nd and 4th Sundays, we have interpreted services on the main floor with the hearing congregation.
On most 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month, we have Bible Study in the Fireside Room. After finishing a study of the New Testament, which begins in October, we will have a new lesson series (thanks to Rev. Reinke).
