Everything happens “in the fullness of God’s time.” To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under the heaven.” Read the whole chapter of Ecclesiastes 3. It’s wonderful. A time to be born and a time to die.
In the fullness of time not too early, not too late, but in God’s time. That’s hard for us to wrap our head around sometimes. We want to hurry, hurry.

Bro. Gary said he didn’t have a sermon planned, but God planned the evening through Bro. Bill Bolding. Special songs were by Linda R., Emma, Linda R. and Betty H. We had an awesome testimony service. God’s presence was very evident in the service. Bro. Gary sang and gave an invitation for anyone who needed salvation to come forward.
