Jeff led us in prayer. Bro. Hi’s thought for the evening was “Choices.” He read from Acts chapters 8 and 9. He named many of God’s choices in the Old Testaments. God chose many special people to do special work for Him down through the ages. How blessed we are today that we have the opportunity to “choose” to be a child of God.
Sister Janice was the teacher for our young people’s class tonight. We are so thankful to have five in her class and pray in the future more children will come on Wednesday nights.

It was a very good Bible study. We were dismissed in prayer by Sister Melba.
