Brother Martin read the devotion after we brought all the prayer petitions forward, and prayer by Sister Hellen. We are very thankful for all His goodness and mercy, not only at Thanksgiving, but every day we live for Him.

Brother Ric read from ll Thes. 5:16-19, all about thanking the Lord daily. It was a very good message, especially timely, and we should do this every day. Brother Ric took a few minutes to let the  congregation tell some of the things they were most thankful for, a very good service.
