Bible conference 2009 Day 1

Well last night we started our annual Bible conference with Brother Smith. He is an old time preacher from Oklahoma. I wasn't sure what to expect, because of late the church has been in a slump. I was praying hard that God would send some people to hear this man of God!

God blessed and we had 21 in attendance. For us on a Thursday that's not bad. Many of these were children, but as you know Jesus said, suffer the little children to come unto me!

The children were a blessing to me and 7 called on the name of Jesus for salvation! Praise God for that!

We weren't expecting children to come, but God thought different. As I drove into the Gypsy village to pick up one of our families in the church, there were 11 children standing in front of their house waiting to go to church. I told them to come Sunday when we have a program for them, but they said, "please can we come to church." I said, "you'll have to sit for two hours and listen, Can you sit that long?" They said, "We will be good please let us come?" Of coarse by now, how can I tell them no! I think these children need some one to love them. I pray that God will love these children through me. Many come from broken homes, and have hell on earth! I pray that God will save each and everyone of them, and that through them their parents will be saved!

I can't wait to see what God will do tonight! We praise him and give Him all the glory!
