WHO’s Picnic!

February 13, 2024

HOUSTON – The date was set. Sunday, Oct. 1, 2023. The World Harvest Outreach Seventh-day Adventist Church, better known as the “WHO” in Houston, Tex., was anticipating to have a long-overdue and well-needed fellowship picnic.

Throughout the planning process, we were faced with many setbacks and deterrents including the unusual hot weather we were experiencing late in the fall. But after much prayer and turning to the One who is in control of all things, things began to turn around. I can happily report that everything worked out for the good! 

On that Sunday, the “WHO” family gathered together at the Harris County Tom Bass Park at Pavilion #5. The weather was beautiful! Whether you sat under the pavilion or amongst the trees, there was a cooling breeze always blowing with no humidity. 

There were plenty of activities for every age group which included card games, board games, volleyball, corn hole, tug-of-war, sack racing and gift card giveaways for naming “that choir.” Oh! Did I mention the food? It was a royal feast with nothing lacking. And all this happening with the soothing melodies spun by the DJ, Ryan Wilson.

We were blessed with showers of blessings. Lorrain Bevis said, “I really enjoyed myself, I had a great time.” 

“I had not planned to come because of my schedule, however, I’m glad I did. I had a wonderful time,” shared Rosenda Gregory. Charles and Theresa Phlegm said, “We enjoyed everything. The fellowship, the food, the ‘letting the hair down of the members’ and the weather was perfect. It was a very special day.” 

“Thank you so much for a successful church picnic,” echoed Paula Moss. “I had an unexpected great time.” 

Well, it was a great day and a great experience! This was my first time attending a picnic with the “WHO” and I enjoyed it so much, I think we will try it again next year!
