Wednesday night service was a very spiritual time and enjoyed by all. We had a young man just out of high school who brought the message.
Michael was a very dynamic young man. He preached the word and didn’t hesitate. His text was from Matthew 19:16. A rich young ruler came to Jesus and ask what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? Jesus told him and the young man went away sorrowful. He had kept all the commandments since he was young, but to sell all his worldly goods, he was not willing. Michael said, “read Romans three, it’s a pretty good read.”
All things are possible when God is in the situation. “We are the strongest when we are on our knees, that’s the direct life line to God.”
Prayer requests were for Denny Cunningham, Naomi’s Jacob, Bevy’s Dad, the lost, Donna and family, Bonnie and Bill and Zelda.
Sunday morning was a beautiful day that the Lord hath made.
Morning prayer requests were for Roy Patterson, Linda Donnelly, our military men and women, Leah request prayer for a graduate who was in an accident, John and Lorin, Marvin G., Martha – April’s grandmother, little James said pray for papa and my son, Kevin C.
Special music was by Linda R., Bevy, Betty H. and Gary M.
Romans 12:1 was the scripture. Present your bodies a living sacrifice – Holy acceptable. We will sin, we are human, but we have an advocate with the Father, if our hearts are sincere. Be not conformed to the world. It sounds easy doesn’t it?
Sunday evening was a heart felt and touching service. Teresa Wilkerson, daughter of Steve and Angie Wilkerson, is leaving Saturday for Minnesota. She is going to be at the White Earth Indian Reservation. She will be helping the couple who are missionaries there, teaching and whatever needs to be done.
She told us some very interesting facts and some very sad ones too. Fathers at the reservation are not around much. It’s mothers and grandmothers and aunts who take care of the children. Schools and teachers are scarce. Fourteen percent have a chance to go to high school, only one percent stay and get their diploma.
Come visit us when you can. Our church is at the corner of N.W. 6th Ave and N.W. 7th St. Gary Moore is pastor. If you need anything just give him or his wife a call, their home phone number is 417-683-6547, Gary’s cell 417-543-6197 and Bevy’s cell is 417-683-8106.
What good is a clean slate if you don’t write on it?
