Thank you, Jim. This is something new to me and I am learning every day.

These new pictures reminded me of a dear friend in Bodega Bay, now gone to his rest, whose mother prayed him out of Alcatraz. He became a preacher and missionary, and when we see documentaries of Alcatraz, sometimes we see him. I believe that most men who were sent there never got out alive.
I wish you could have known Reverend Earl Nevins. Even into his eighties, he took no money for pastoring the Bodega Bay church, supporting himself and his dear wife by operating a backhoe on construction sites. He married and buried many of the longtime residents of Bodega Bay.
I believe he had killed a man in a bar fight or something in his early wild years, which is what got him in. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ got him out.

Hi Mary,

Thanks so much for visiting. Hope you are feeling better now.

Praise God that this site has uplifted you spiritually. May the Lord continue to use me through this medium to bless others as well.
