Last Days in Snyder

Our trip to Snyder, Texas was wonderful.  We were welcomed with open arms and certainly experienced good ole Southern hospitality!  One thing that happened that we didn’t expect was having John, my sweet husband of 8 ½ years, talk to “Fellowship Christian Athletes” at Snyder High and briefly at a crisis center for abused women. The principal has already asked if we would come back when school starts next year and have us speak to girls and boys as high school and middle school!

John was married and divorced for 33 years before we married.  He had a Damascus Road experience when he was saved and spent those years as a bachelor studying God’s Word about a man’s relationship in dating and marriage. 

I had never heard him speak and now see that God has a ministry for both of us!  To be referred to as his “Princess” and “Beloved” is something I never expected to hear from a husband.  We look forward to seeing what God has in store for us.

The last day we were in Snyder we had a book signing and reception at an adorable shop call Manhattan Coffee House on the Square.  What a glorious week!!!

  1. It was nice to see you, again, Daphene, after 50 years, and to meet John for the first time. I'd say that you landed on your feet. -Michael DeShane Hinton
