Tubing on Diamondhead Lake

Our family was invited out to the Osborne’s today for lake fun.  Elisabeth, Luke,  Benjamin and I went tubing on Diamondhead Lake (just outside of Dexter…which is just a few miles west of Wiscotta or 12 miles northwest of Pitzer)  on this Memorial Day, not for very long, but just long enough to make Karla cringe in disbelief  as we cruised by the front of their lakefront property.  You may ask why I did it.  Because I could not find any good reason not to do so.   I had a bit of trouble getting into the boat and then onto the tube and hanging on with one good arm, but other than that there were no problems!  We are heading back up to Mayo next week for three days of follow-up visits.  I think it would do my heart good (not literally) to show Drs. Meyer and Fogleson (the neurosurgeons) pictures of me tubing on Memorial Day weekend.

On the mend slowly but surely,


“Welcome Back Pastor Mike Sunday” May 31st

Greetings my fellow bloggers,

It is with great joy that I write to you. We are preparing for the “Official welcome back Pastor Mike Sunday” May 31st. In preparation for this glorious event for our church we would like to give each of you who have been following the blog and praying for Pastor Mike, his family and our church an opportunity to send him a note of encouragement. You can do this by email or if you want to get more creative send us a video, poster or banner. In your note please let Pastor Mike know how God worked in your life during his stay at Mayo.

Please use the following email

mailing address:
8435 University Blvd STE  7
Clive, Iowa 50325

If you plan to send a note please do so by May 28th. We praise God for the many thousands of you who prayed for Pastor Mike. God has been very gracious and we at Crossroad church are looking forward to seeing how God will use this for His Glory.

On behalf of Crossroad Church and the Evans family thank you for your prayers and support.

Jer 29:11
God Bless

Dean E. Osborne
