On Sunday March 15th we ministered at First Baptist Church of Monroe. Pastor Matt Spoonhour is the pastor of this church. During the Sunday School hour I shared a Bible message and presented the ministry of the WFBC via power point. I also preached on “The Will of God” for the morning service. It was a blessing to see the church auditorium three-quarters full and to hear of plans for a new entryway and parking lot. Praise the Lord for his blessing on this local church ministry under the leadership of Pastor Spoonhour.
Two interesting things happened on Sunday morning in addition to the great services. While driving to the church three deer tried to outrun our van, and one of them wanted to get across the road real bad! While I was trying to get to the church in a timely way, I slowed down and let the deer get across safely. Upon our arrival at the church and while getting set up Pastor Spoonhour asked me if I had seen that the van had a flat tire. Apparently it had been losing air during our eighty mile trip and only went completely flat after stopping, since I had not felt any indication while driving. During the service a couple of MBBC students took off the tire and went to Farm and Fleet where the church purchased a brand new tire to replace the original that had been damaged. What an unexpected series of events! Thanks again to First Baptist Church of Monroe for a blessed day, lunch, a love offering and a new tire for the van. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
