We began with singing, followed with our scripture reading and so many prayers for all our loved ones. We had a good lesson, again about Paul, comparing this Christian life we are in to a race. There is no place to quit and we must keep our eyes focused on the prize.
Brother Ric read from Genesis 6, about the evil of man in those early days. Do we see a comparison in then and now? Evil was evil then, and it continues to be evil now.
We were glad to have our visitors in our morning service and hope they will want to come each Sunday. Our Sunday school begins at 10, and morning worship at 11. Sunday evening bible study is at 5:30.
Sunday was the first night of our new bible study and we had a good turnout and a very interesting lesson about Abraham, Sarah, Hagar and Ishmael. Sister Nina is our leader and we have workbooks, if you would like to join us, please do.
Glad to hear Clifford and Imogene Madewell both got good reports from their doctors this past week.

Ronnie and Pat were in West Plains with Jadon and Kaylee Thursday evening, while Doug and Kristie had to work.
