  1. I just finished reading about the passing of your friend, Chuck Perlos. First Pastor Whiteford and now Mr. Perlos. Your sensitive heart has taken a battering. I am praying for you. Dear Brother Ken. May God give you loving power from on high.

    I also just read one of your Camp Barakel stories and saw a picture of your brother Kevin. I was amazed at how he looks so much like the Bud Shipley I knew–although your Grandpa’s hair was probably whiter!! Isn’t it amazing how much we look like, or act like, or sound like, or even write like our parents, our grandparents? ? (Now that I think of it, that “Patty Duke, identical-cousins-show wasn’t so far off the track after all!!) I loved your grandparents, Bud and sweet Charlotte–I certainly never wanted to “hush” HER!!! ? I loved praying with Charlotte. You’ve been blessed, my Brother, and you ARE a blessing!

  3. How wonderful our Lord is, to allow your path to cross with Charles Perlos and to enable you and Lois to buy Bittersweet Farm, making it your current home.
    Now Mr. Perlos is safe in the arms of Jesus. I’m very glad you got to tell him good-bye.
    God is so good, all the time.
    Have a blessed day!

  4. Thank you for sharing all the details of this story of God and how he orchestrated this meeting and goodbye. Pastor Ken I am so glad you took that fall drive, we get you, Lois and your family to love and lead us! But Charles is the true winner, he gets Jesus and Heaven now. There is no coinincidence with God. Thank you again.

  5. This is such a JOY to me to see how the Lord answers our fervent prayers for our children and for another soul for whom Christ died entering the Kingdom.
