The joy of meeting old friends by surprise!

Yesterday as Susan and I sat at a booth in the Old Spaghetti Factory in Chesterfield, Missouri, I looked up and, behold! There stood Dennis Breland, a friend from long ago! He was joined by his wife, Rene. Memories came flooding back, spilling from our mouths.

Dennis was one of a group of young men discipled by my father, Glen Segraves, when Dad pastored the United Pentecostal Church in Dexter, Missouri during the 1970s. Dad considered these the most fruitful years of his ministry. Most all of these young men are in ministries of their own today.

Dennis pastors the United Pentecostal Church in Perryville, Missouri. The church has a website and Facebook presence if you would like to know more.
