November 24 – We met at Caney the night before Thanksgiving. Service began with singing. Bro. Jim Lafferty took charge of the service. Prayer request and praise reports were given. Sis. Charlotte Roberts led in prayer. Jim read Psalms 1, Matthew 7:13-14, 21-23 and Revelations 2:10. There is no consolation prize was his thought. There is one way and only one way to get to heaven. There is two ways to go up or down, you make the choice now. No do overs and no consolation prize. A very serious thought.
