Brother Ric was away for the weekend, and we appreciate Brother Richard and Molly Potter who were guests, in both services. Brother Richard read Ephesians 4 and spoke of us walking worthy of our vocation. It was a very good message and we certainly appreciate Brother Richard filling in with another good message in our Heart of the Ozarks service in the afternoon. We had an excellent turnout, great participation from our church, the listeners and visitors. Again, we appreciate Norma Stillings for being our piano player, what a great job she does.
