We arrived without our luggage, so the two shirts Shirley had got me especially for the trip, never got worn... and her colorful dress never came out of the suitcase. They told us they would deliver the suitcases to us, but there was only one flight a day from Vancouver to Sacramento, and once they received it they would have it delivered to us... and they did (about 80 miles). 10:30 pm. Saturday after we just got in bed there was a knock on the door. They arrived. At 8am Sunday morning we left for the airport to fly home.
I think that the organ in this church is as good as it gets... and the music was over the top spectacular. Susan Roberts had an amazing Easter message... without a single note, she stood up and spoke for at least 30 minutes. "We all have dreams... and Jesus still asks each of us to, 'Follow Me."
Meet Katy Van Arsdale... she is the Archivist for PUC... the one who encouraged me to donate my poster collection to the school. Here she is holding an original letter from Ellen G. White... the last page that she just found this past week. No one knows how it got misplaced, but there was a lot of excitement when she was able to put this last page with the rest of the letter.
Katy showed us a few other treasures... like this leather case of J.N. Loughbourgh... his initials are stamped on the front. What a privilege for Shirley to hold that big briefcase.
With the helpful eye of Caleb Pudewell, (art student) they set up a colorful display of the posters in the foyer of Paulin Hall (the music auditorium).
Shirley took this photo of Buz and me. We became very good friends and I helped him make a record album, did a lot of PR work for the Fellowmen, as well as took photos of the group.
One of my art professors, Charles Temple, was the one who encouraged me to explore the possibility of silk screen printing to make posters. (Yearbook photo)
It was hard to get back far enough to get in the whole church bell tower, so I cheated a little and tilted the camera.
"Not more surely is the place prepared for us in the heavenly mansions than is the special place designated on earth where we are to work for God."
