I grew up in Lincoln, NE, but spent many days during the summer, and other times of the year, in Arnold. The people of Arnold genuinely took interest in this city boy. My Grandma and Grandpa Halstead were laid to rest in the Arnold Cemetery, and when I visit their graves, I look forward to the day that I, too, will be buried in Arnold. Although I did not grow up in Arnold, the people of Arnold have always been a part of my extended family. In particular, Dale and Donna Fletcher have made me feel like a son and have welcomed my son into their home and their lives.
Of the most importance is that my spiritual life was influenced by Arnold First Baptist Church. God blessed me with a church home to attend while in Arnold and this church home provided me with opportunities to learn the truth of God’s word and how to apply it to my life.
Thank you Arnold, and may God bless you.
