Banner of Love

I would just like to say thank you to all who have raised money for the Banner of Love program. Thanks to it, we now have a large church flag to put in our church. We received it in the mail yesterday. When the program began, and possibly even still now, many people probably just thought of churches overseas not having a flag because of finances, but the program is being a blessing to our church. We are not destitute or anything, but the finances that we have are going towards just having a place to worship, and the upkeep on it. So it has been a blessing to receive a flag without having to wonder where to cut a corner somewhere else. It came to me, during the assembly sometime, that possibly we would be able to get a flag thru the program, but I did not feel that I should say anything. The Lord worked it out that I didn't need to ask. Our overseer asked one of our members if we had a flag. Upon discovering that we didn't, he said that he would look into getting one for us. It is wonderful to know that in this world-wide church we are all the same. If there is a need we work to fill it, whether the local congregation be here in Franklin, South Africa, Colombia, or India. Please pray for us that we can be a blessing to others, as others have been a blessing to us.
