Diane and I are currently on the Western Slope to attend the Cowboy Camp Meeting. Despite the last-minute scurry to secure a new location for the event due to encroaching wildfires near Silver Jack Reservoir, God truly blessed in helping coordinators locate the Columbine Campground near Columbine Pass.
Next week, Diane and I head to Wyoming for camp meeting at Mills Spring Ranch. Ron Halverson and Mic Thurber will be the main speakers for this spiritual convocation on Casper Mountain.
On a personal note, I have some exciting news. There aren't many of us, but I'm one of the faithful few who have mourned the loss of Numete and Nuteena for many years now. Since Worthington stopped making those products, there have been a number of attempts to imitate them, without much success.
Just this week, Suzanne Haffer, the Adventist Book Center manager, shared with me a new product just released by Cedar Lake Foods called “Nutabella.” I was quite skeptical at first, but I must tell you I was happily surprised! It really is very good. As a Numete enthusiast, I heartily endorse this new product. Thanks, Suzanne and Cedar Lake!
By the way, I received no monetary gain for plugging Nutabella.
Happy Sabbath everyone!
