An Awesome Service

Real Estate Agent with Tennessee Realty

Just had to share this with all of you. God has been so good!

Tonight we observed the Lord's Supper at church. It was done in a special way however. Our pastor asked all family members to sit together, and then he called us up one family at a time to observe. Before we took the bread and the fruit of the vine he let each one of us know how much he appreciated us. I was sad because my husband, our son and myself were standing up there but our 18 yr. old daughter chose to stay home so I just felt a little emptiness there. We sit back down in our pew and my 9 year old tells me he is ready to be saved. Of course I asked him if he was sure and that I'm very happy but want to stress the fact that he needs to be ready. He assured me he was and that he wanted to talk to our pastor but only if I go with him. So my tears of sadness turn to tears of joy!

God has really blessed our church too. Tonight there were 80 people present. Easter Sunday we had over I believe 250 people - last Sunday almost the same amount. Our deacons had to stand aganst the wall we were so packed. Praise the Lord what a wonderful problem to have! 

Just want my brothers and sisters on Active Rain to know I am praying for you. There are so many that I can't name you all but you are in my prayers. Please say a little prayer for my church and if you happen to be in Dyersburg, Tennessee please come visit Second Baptist Church. You will feel the Holy Spirit moving!

Renee, God is Good, isn't he?  I wonder how or why anyone would want to be without him?  Even though I am having some tough, sad times, I know he is with me always.  That's pure consolation. Keep me and my brother in your prayers too.  I appreciate you.  Oh!  and I will see you soon in class.

Both of my daughters came to the Lord last year. I know how proud you must be. Courtney has been taught by a good example(you and Joe) so rest assured you have done your part. Just keep praying for her!

Hugh- We are actually searching for another building. Thank you also for praying for my son. God Bless You.

Mike - Thank you! I am very proud of him as I know you are proud of your girls. They are good girls.  I am praying for Courtney (and Blake) and just hope that we have (and the Lord will give) them enough guidance to make the right choices. Just look at Joe; he has come a long way in his walk.

I really enjoyed meeting you today in Dyersburg.  I'm glad we are now "associates" and friends on AR.  I am also glad to know that you are a Christian!  Congrats on your son's decision to come to know the Lord.  How precious. I remember how sweet that moment is for a mom, and I will pray for your church and your family.  Be blessed!

I really enjoyed meeting you as well. Although we did not get to talk much I could tell from your conversations with Brad that you are a sweet, caring, fun person who also loves the Lord.

Last Sunday he was baptized. Mikey stayed Saturday night at a friend's house and his little friend said all Mikey would talk about was being "bapitized" that's how he says it -so cute :)

Thank you for praying for our church and family. We are truly blessed! Today was a blessing too!!
