We had a very good discussion. We heard good scriptures read, all told of being thankful. Sis. Melba taught our youth a lesson. We are thankful that we have a few youth.

Last Weeks News – Nov. 15 – Caney came together singing praises to the Lord. Bro. Hi Lambeth welcomed everyone to service. Sis. Melba Austin led in prayer. Bro. Hi read Matthew 7:13-23. Some of His good thoughts – when God prepared hell he made it for the devil and his angels. He did not make it for man. There are many false prophets, according to this they will be with the devil. You must be washed in the blood of Christ to make heaven your home. We must be established on the foundation of Christ. We had a good discussion, wonderful scripture read. We certainly learned some things tonight. Bro. Hi is a good teacher. Sis. Melba Austin had a good lesson for our youth.

He can do over and above anything we ask. We don’t know how big a God we serve. He created everything you see, hear, taste. He made any and all you can think of. We were truly blessed today with several visitors. Please come again.
