Our Friend Day was a success! Though we didn't reach our goal of 50, we did come close with 45 people present. Bro. Chovan preached an excellent message in the morning service, and presented the Gospel clearly. No one was saved in the service, but the seed was sown. My prayer is that the seed fell on fertile soil and will one day bear fruit for the Lord. Mrs. Chovan volunteered to teach my Sunday school class, which Wes agreed to. She taught about evanglists and what they do and why. Our ladies brought an abundance of food, and no one went away hungry. In addition, it was one of our members' and his daughter's birthday, so they had their large family there to help celebrate; many of them didn't come till time to eat, though, so we couldn't count them in the total for the morning service! LOL We made some new contacts, and several visitors were repeats from our anniversary service. Our evening service saw about 15 people return, our core group of people. Bro. Chovan preached a message on "I Am Debtor" concerning our responsibility to win souls. It was a challenge that I needed, even if no one else did. But I think it was a blessing to our people too! ;) Thanks to everyone who prayed for us - we can't make it without your prayers!
