Everyone in Mt. Tabor community is enjoying the abundant rain of the last few weeks. Some of the creeks are running full and ponds are to the point of overflowing, with rain still in the forecast, what a blessing for August.
We continue to pray for the many needs of our community, church, and nation, as well as the unsaved and bereaved.
