On Sunday morning, Mike Buxton called on Jay Zeilstra to go to the platform to announce the Arizona On Fire meeting that is to be held in Tucson beginning Thursday night. Did Jay ever have a surprise in store.
Jay made a remarkable presentation to Pastor Buxton and to Sister Buxton, calling them both to stand with him and Holly as he spoke beautiful words of love and appreciation. It was so well done, so sincerely from his heart, that nearly the entire congregation was in tears. His words were especially endearing, seeing he has been in the church only a short time. He came through the Christian intervention program of the church, and he and Holly are developing into outstanding Christians.
The words on the plaque could not have been more appropriate to express love and appreciation to a pastor.
…nor could the flowers have been more beautiful.
Jay and Holly Zeilstra “outdid” themselves in showing honor to their pastor and to his wife. It will never be forgotten.
