Moments in the Life of Charles Dailey
GONE PREACHING – Nebraska
The first baptism that I had was Doyall Allsman. Doyall was much taller than me. I'm not sure if he ever realized that I dropped him momentarily in the baptistry. But I remember it clearly. After that I learned better techniques.
We met some wonderful saints there including Earnest and Clara Hoffman, grandparents of Ron Edson. They were a great help, both spiritually and with food. The church could not continue to meet our salary and survival became a concern.
The Hoffman's had led many in a Congregational Church at Cora, just over the state line in Kansas to understand the Lord's Church. The new believers attended the church at Inavale, Nebraska after the denomination closed the building to the Hoffmans.
After making some grand friends in Nebraska like Don DeBord and Dale Williamson, we returned to the west coast with a stop at Parma, Idaho to visit Ron Edson's parents, Lee and Marvel.
