We had the pleasure of experiencing another great Sunday morning worship survice with Br. Mike Peper visiting us. I have talked to so many of you that came away from that service with an exclamation of “WOW!”. The missions field is truly ripe unto harvest and every time we have a missionary share the work that is going on in other countries I get excited all over again. Bro. Mike and his staff are truly doing a fantastic work in Sierra Leone and I know that you will join me in extending our prayers to him for safety and that God will continue to meet his needs in that ministry. I look forward to every worship service but Sunday (11-17-13) was just special. The prayers, preaching, fellowship and music was just electric. It all culminated Sunday evening with Sis. Dominie playing “We Shall Behold Him,” a song that brings home the hope of every Christian who faithfully serves God.
I would like to thank all of you who came out on our “workday” on Saturday, 11-16-13. We had a chance to really give the house of God a thorough cleaning. I thank each of you for helping us keep our building and grounds clean and free from litter. I have witnessed so many churches that seem to lose their passion for keeping up properties and it is so encouraging to see your zeal for the cleanliness of our sanctuary.
Most of you know by now that Sybil and I are grandparents again. Ellyette Quinn came into this world on Thursday, November 14th, 2013 @ 10:30 am. She weighed 6 pounds 15 ounces and was 20 inches long. I must report to you that both grandparents fell in love at first sight! Our smallest grandson, 1 year old Luca, had a slightly different analysis upon his first sight of his sister. He simply looked at her and pointed his little finger and said in an inquisitive voice, “squirrel”? I think (and pray) he has a little more understanding now. Thank you all for your prayers and I am happy to report that both mom and baby came home Monday, 11-18-13 and they are doing well.
That’s all for now. Please stay safe and remember all of the infirm who are on our prayer list. Do not forget to pray for our country, our troops and our churches.
God Bless you all!
