Pat's Chat Pat Ridpath, Burnsville 472-5102 or 888-294-5401 Familiar Faces in 4nother Place I am sorry to tell you that my friend and former classmate, Iva Lob (Love) Eubank's son, Roger, died on July 10 at home. I just don't know how people survive losing their children. You and your family have my deepest sympathy, Iva Lob. I am still in Kansas City. Pat Mor- gan Detko, a friend of ours from our years of living here, took me to church yesterday. It is not the same building we attended when we were here. but I got to visit with some of the same people: The new church is beautiful and modern. Some of the folks who read this Chat will remember some of these people. David Lewis used to be a member here, but he moved to south- ern West Virginia. I was surprised to see him here; he is vismng for a week or so. Among those I talked to were: Ernie and Bever, ly Van Carpenter; LeGaye Malcolm and Peggy Tern Geriche; Roger Stocker wife, Joy; Charles Shaw q remember me); and Kern Hansen.

We had a nice attendance, a fun auction and a good meal. We enjoyed a visit from Tanya and Aden Isenhart; he is a cutie and is surely growing. All of my grandchildren really en- joyed the fireworks, in spite of the little shower that just dampened things a little. It appears that Dog Days set in dry, as we can't seem to get the good rain that we need badly. Congratulations go out to Sara and John Wayne on their new baby boy. We need to add Dewayne Riffle to our prayer list. Wayne, Mikala and I attended the Tanner #4 Reunion at Shock on Sat- urday. There was a nice crowd, with good music and staging. u/U/Z The summer harvest day begun With cloudless dawn and flaming sun: Ripe grain the sickle flashes through. The sweep of scythes in morning dew. The nooning underneath the trees Made cool by sea or mountain breeze: The thundershower, the clearing sky, And sunset splendors of July. [From The Governor's Desk: l weekly column by Gov. Joe Manchin Attention All Drug Dealers: Operation Eviction Coming to Your Town Soon Earlier this week I met with fed- Thismoney alloweLth’ West ir- eral, state and local law enforcement g,-,,-'ate.:P_',,ell;er offzcials, commUmty leaders and ia':forceme h- elected officials in Huntington to dis- cuss the next steps in dealing with crime in Cabell County and across the state. During the meeting, we talked about current law enforcement issues in the county, as well as the success of efforts to tackle crime in recent months. In addition, we announced Operation Eviction. a new initiative that is a collaborative effort between state and local law enforcements to get drug traffickers off our streets. When I took office as Governor, my administration immediately be- gan working with the members of our law enforcement community to target illegal drugs and enhance our drug eradication efforts. In July 2006. we dedicated an additional $1 million to combat the drug problem in West Virginia. out the state, to crack down hard on the state's drug trade. We are seeing results from our hard work over the past few years. For instance, in 2004. the WV State Police's Bureau of Criminal Investigations (BCI) unit seized more than $910,000 in drugs. Last year, the BCI unit alone took nearly $13.7 million in drugs off the streets. Working with county and local law enforcement, we have made great advancements in putting criminals behind bars during the past four years. And. this week. with the announce- ment and kick-offof Operation Evic- tion. we take our fight on drugs to the next level.

Operation Eviction will allow the use of state resources to combine with county and city agencies to continue this fight in illegal drug trade in our communities. Operations such as this are no easy task. I am calling on the people of West Virginia to be courageous and support law enforcement in their ef- forts to take back our communiues and restore our families. People in the affected communities have knowl- edge, that if properly passed on to law enforcement, may become crucial in winning the battle. With your help, we can win this war. If you are a drug dealer who is reading this, the choice is yours: "You can leave or we are going to hunt you down and arrest you. Either way, you will be evicted from the streets of West Virginia!"

"Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?" Matthew 15:3 Baptism Is Essential To Salvation ..... Truth Or Tradition? Bapt!,s m Saves Us. In regard to the flood in Noah's day, Peter wrote: The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save ' us. (1 Peter 3:21). How does baptism save us? Water can t wash,,.. away sin ..... can it? -  -7-lau Example Of Naaman. Why would God require Naaman to dip in the Jordan River? (2 Kings 5). Water can't wash away leprosy ..... can it? Could it be a test of his faith? Would he do what God said to do even if he didn't see any sense ]n it? We know Jr'was the power of God fhat cleansed him, but he laad to go into the water in 0der to contact that power. He wasn't cleansed until alter he had done what God required. Could baptism be such a test of our faith? ! Power In The Blood. All sincere Bible students agree tha! there is only one thing in the world that can cleanse us of sin, and that i the blood of Christ. If there were anything else, surely God would have not required His Only Son to suffer as He did. The question is, How can yo and I contact that blood that was shed almost two thousand years ago, half!ay around the world from us? " For The Remission Of Sins. Wln Our Savior msututed the Lord's Supper, He took the.,gu , th e fruit of the vine, and declared: ,"For this is my blood of the n0' testament, which is shed for man' b, FOR THE REMISSION;F SINS." (Matthew26:28). However, on the Day of Pentecost, when the Jews asked Peter what to do to be forgiven of the sin of crucifying the Messiah, Peter responded: "Repent, and be aptized...FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS..." (Acts 2:38). Jesus said 'the blood, and Peter said repentance and baptism. Whom are we to believe? Can we believe both? Could it be that Jesus is talking about the pctwer, the blood, and Peter is talking about how to contact the power, i'epentance and baptism? There must be a connection, because repentance and baptism do he exact same thing for us as the blood. Baptized Into His Death. Paul said that when we are battized into Christ we are baptized into His death. Why would he say that? Itwas in His death that the blood was shed. When His side was pierced there came out blood and water. (John 19:34). What do you think? Baptism Is Essential To Salvation ..... Truth Or Tradition? ..
