Fellowship of Christian Magicians--FCM

Last night we had our monthly(?) meeting of the FCM. We had a good turn out and were able to take care of some business as well as having fun with magic. Our local officers will stay the same for next year; John as Pres, Joe as VP, Gary W. as Treas. Since we rarely actually meet monthly due to numerous conflicts, we voted to meet on the third Sunday of odd numbered months at 2pm at Hopedale Baptist Church. If you are a magician/clown/vent feel free to join us. If you would like more information, click comment below and make your request.

Updates on some of our members:

Dwayne and Janice are temporarily home from Haiti. Keep their new grandson (Paul Timothy) in your prayers. Just days old now, Paul Timothy will be undergoing heart surgery. Because of the unexpected trip home, our local has voted to donate $150 to the Bakers to help with the cost of the trip. If you would like to contribute, comment below and I will get the info to you on where to send your contribution. Dwayne and Janice are Bible Baptist Missionaries in Port Au Prince, Haiti.

Walt has resigned from his current church and is seeking God's direction for what is next. I know that God will continue to use him in some area of ministry. I imagine that he'll be at the FCM Convention next summer.

After catching up with each other, we got down to the business of having fun. Joe brought his non-magician friend Cecil and so Cecil became the volunteer for any effect that we did. Cecil is the kind of audience that every magician loves to have. I'm not sure who is having more fun--Cecil or the performer. "Do it again," became a phrase that we heard over and over again. It was great to have somebody there to reminds us of how much fun we get to have when we play at our hobby/ministry/craft.

All in all, I had a great time. I am looking forward to our first meeting of 2007. To Gary and Mary, Walt and Vivian, Rebecca and little Benjamin, Joe, Gary, Cecil and those that couldn't make it--Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and may God bless and prosper you all in the coming year. I hope that more of you take the opportunity to join us in '07.
