OLD FASHION DAY

 We had a wonderful day at church yesterday.  Had our regular Sunday School, Morning Service, Children's Church.  Then we ladies all brought food and ate and had sweet fellowship together.  The children were feed a little earlier and then went outside for fun and games until time for the 2: PM Service.  The Lord  came and blessed and I think at least six were saved in the morning and afternoon service.  Several in the children's church.  God was there to hear our prayer and bless us and encourage us.  Below are a few pictures that we snapped.

 This lady is really old fashion.  Notice what she is carrying!  A gift bag with a diaper on it.  I think she will be giving this to one of the ladies that is expecting a baby soon.  Look at the diaper on the outside of the bag!
 This was a big trailer filled with  hay. The children had a good ride around the  the acres of the church. 
 This is one of the young men that was willing to be flooded with a bucket  of water.  If a target was hit with a baseball the hole in the bucket would open up and spray him real good.  I hope he doesn't get sick.  The weather was a little chilly.
There were many more booths that were good clean fun for the children.  The bus children were then brought home and we had our afternoon service.  The Lord again blessed us with good singing and preaching.  More souls were saved. 
We must have had about 500 or more in attendance.  Our buses have had a goal of  reaching 200 boys and girls.  They reached and surpassed their goal yesterday.  This was done by getting out and knocking on doors and telling people about the Lord.  Some of the parents are beginning to come and  getting saved. 
Is it worth all the work?  All the effort put forth to go out and bring them in?  Yes!  A thousand times yes!
Just seeing one soul saved is worth it all. 

Sometimes we use the excuse that we can't go.  That is true as you get older or your health is bad.  But the Bus Captain told us that without prayer their efforts are in vain.  So we can pray for those that go.  Our goal is souls, not just to say we had over 200 on the buses. 
Working together is the key.  I think that is why is blessing our church and our people.  People had a mind to work. 
We'll work "til Jesus comes,
We'll work 'til Jesus comes,
We'll work "til Jesus comes
And then be gathered home.

Oh that looks like such a fun day Aliene, I miss those times, I wish I had lived back in the 1800 when ladies were true ladies, and things were so much different. Love you sister, and have a great day. Lots of love, Barbara

I've never been to a church
that celebrated in this way
but it looks like so much
fun. I love the clothes of
those days, long dresses in
particular.
Blessings,

Praise God! Children's ministries can sometimes be so taxing, but it's so wonderful to see precious little ones saved then baptized. It's been such a blessing to see the kids in our church get saved and baptized through our various minitries. What's even more exciting is watching revivals happen in the families that started out just as "bus kids"
