October 2 was a beautiful Lord’s day. The Elmore’s came and sang Sunday at Garrison Baptist Church. A bountiful dinner was served. Church decided to have Sunday night services and it was sure good to see and show if you obey God and let Him lead, you can get results. Everyone was around the altar praying. Attendance was down to 45 Sunday. Pretty good attendance Sunday night.
