Sunday Special: Pentecost & Ron Riley

... because each one heard them speaking in his own language. Acts 2:5

Ron and his wife, Bonnie, recently joined a Lutheran Church near their home in Florida.  Ray told me that Ron read the Gospel in German on Pentecost  At our church, the gospel used to be read simultaneously in many languages on Pentecost.  Ron didn't learn to read and speak German from his German-American mother.  While he was in the service, he was stationed in Germany and made it a point to spend time with German families and learned the language.  I am so impressed that these many years later, he could still feel comfortable enough with his language skills to be able to do this.
