I have just typed for probably an hour and hit a key that I didn't even realize and of course erased all that I had typed. I love it when I do that. I don't even know what I did wrong. The things I wanted to record were a lot but at least I should put down a couple of things.
1. The last post came the day before we had our first baptism, and it turned out to be a great day. We had 6 baptisms, 50 people in attendance, and God really blessed me by helping me to do something I had never done before, so I was very grateful and thankful that God was in our midst.
2. Andy has been speaking for me the last two Sunday and will again speak tomorrow. He is being groomed by the Lord for future things, at least that is what is seems like to me. He is doing well and is using the gifts both recent and long ago, to help him do a good job.
3. Joey Patterson continues to be such a blessing to me. He is so eager to follow Jesus and to do all the things he needs to, to grow in his faith. He wants to be baptized, give his testimony, and is giving financially too, which is great to me for where a man's treasure is, there is his heart also, so Joey is definitely excited and genuine in his faith.
4. I continue to preach in Giles and will do so again tommorrow, so I want to be used and yet will be glad when we can switch to 11:00 am services if that will help the Life Pointe family to grow. Well that wasn't all that I had typed but before I erase something I am going to post this. God is good!
