Church Building

We here at Franklin have found a property which we are interested in buying for the Church. We can afford to get it, and have found out that it is zoned correctly for us to use now, but we are waiting on confirmation that we could expand it, or build a new facility in the future, without major rezoning issues. Please pray that everything will go smoothly for us.

General Assembly Building

Just in case anyone out there wanted to take a peek inside, I have uploaded a video that Bro. James Smith took of the inside of the building we are going to have the General Assembly at this year. It is short, only about 15-20 seconds so if you would like to see it you can just click here. There you will find a picture of the outside, as well as the video of the inside. Both of which are the courtesy of Bro. James Smith, our regional overseer in the North Eastern US. Thank you Bro. Smith.

Back from BTI

Well, we made it to BTI and back safely. We had a wonderful time while there. It was sad that some of our old friends were unable to make it this year for different reasons, but we made some new friends as well. Anna did real good on the drive down and on the drive back. On the way down, all of the driving was at night, so she slept the whole time except when she needed to be fed. We drove back during the day and were worried that she would have problems, but she did just as good as she did on the way down.
While at BTI, we were able to go look at where we will be having the assembly this year. IT is very nice, and I think it will work very well for us. Bro. Grayson should have some pictures up on the General website before too long.
Unfortunately, while we were there, my grandfather's brother got very sick, so they had to leave to go see him before he died, which he passed away yesterday, so we didn't get to spend as much time with them as we would have liked to. Please pray for my family during this time of loss.
It is good to be back home. Even though I have a lot of catching up to do. There have been some positive things going on here locally at the Church. A couple of our young people that we had not seen for a while have shown up this past week. One of them to two different services. Unfortunately, she will be out of town for the next month or so, but we look forward to when she will get back. Secondly, my cousin that got saved last fall will be able to get out of jail about three months sooner than expected. She will have some restrictions for a while, but hopefully she will be able to come to church. At the very least, it will be much easier for all of us to go and see her. Please pray for her that she will stay strong in the Lord.
Well, that's about all for now. May God bless you as you labor for Him.

I forgot to put anything in my last couple of posts about my visit to Evansville Saturday. It was good to see everyone. Unfortunately, Sis. Loya had to work. The Loya's have been busy. They have only live where they are currently at for about 3-4 months I believe, and already had one neighbor asking for SS lit. and two more that they think are interested.

Showers of Blessing

I just want to thank the Lord for the wonderful things that He is doing for our local church. We had a wonderful service last night in which the Holy Ghost came down and blessed in a very special way. I am anticipating great things in the days, weeks, and months ahead.

In other topics, I now have a thumb licking daughter! She doesn't suck her thumb, she just licks it. I haven't seen anything like it before. I would put a link here to the video, but then realized I have it on myspace, which I don't know if you can view it without an account. I will try to upload it to Youtube sometime soon.

Hope that God is blessing you where you are at.
