The Birthday Boy


It’s not everyday that you are 90 – but yesterday, Saturday the 1st of August, Lachlan Mackinnon (Parkhouse) Balephetrish celebrated his 90th along with family and friends. Today, the church family joined with Lachie and his wife Rena in marking this very special occasion.  Becky Wright presented him with a birthday card before leading us in singing happy birthday. Then, on behalf of the church, Ian Tainsh gave thanks for Lachie’s faithful service over more than 60 years and presented him with a Bible – suitably inscribed.  Movingly Lachie gave God thanks for his grace in bringing him into his family and enabling him to live for God’s glory for so many years.  The service concluded with us sharing in Holy Communion. Afterwards we thoroughly enjoyed a celebratory meal. There’s no doubt that the chefs excelled themselves today.
