Later during the offertory, an instrumental ensemble played "There's Something About That Name." Bennie Russell sang a solo "You're The Only Jesus." If not from you, Who will it be? Albert May spoke from John 5:17, 19-20, continuing on with the thought "The Father is Already at Work, #2." After Jesus had healed the crippled man on the Sabbath, the people were wanting to kill him. Jesus told them that "the Son can do nothing-'of his own accord but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever he does, the Son does likewise. For the Father loves the Son and shows him what he himself is doing; for whatever he does the Son does likewise." We need to follow the Commander to be victorious. We shouldn't go off on our own like a second commander. We were created spiritual beings and were not meant to function without him. We need to try to make a commitment to h)llow God's leadership. In the evening service, we had a message on Love from John's book on love. There is an awesome responsibility to love one another in our church. As we attempt to serve with one another, we shouldn't be openly disgruntled. After the prayer time, we had the business meeting that was post- poned and then there was a special time in the fellowship hall for the Promise Keepers to show their pictures and tell interesting happenings in New York and also to have a snack. Coming soon in November: Nov. 2--there will be an International Mission Banquet Nov. 3--Joy Travelers luncheon; speaker will be Dr. Hough. Nov. 10, 11 and 12--Branson trip is scheduled. No more spaces avail- able. Agra Baptist Church By Lois Sumrall If you missed Saturday evening's gospel singing at the Christian Church, you missed a beautiful praise the Lord couple of hours. We thank the Southern Praise and Gospel Vision t~rouos olus Bob Duke and I)drv] [{vans I()r giving ol their time alld voices. \ge pl-ay God's Mehan Union Church Mehan Road 372-4544 Rev.

Agra Baptist started Sunday morning with a French toast and sau- sage breakfast at 9 a.m. Then Sunday School at 9:45 a.m. Morning worship started as usual with songs, children's church, a lot of hand shaking as several families have recovered from the flu. then the missionaries from Argentina showed slides of the people and coun- try where they serve the Lord. Sandy Whitall sang a medley of songs. Randy Whitall's message from the text I Cor. 15:31. This is the most opportune time to reach the world with the gospel. We need to capture one idea it's not us, it's God that does great things through us. The answer to "Why am I here" is that we are tools in God's hands. We should also answer "Am I letting God use me?" He will use us in His time so if we don't feel we are doing much, remember that we are put where we are because God wants us here and when the time comes, He will let us know what we are to do. That time may be as you prepare your children or even grandchildren to be God's chosen ones. Always believe whatever roll God chooses for us and we listen to Him and carry out our part of His great plan to the very best of our ability. We are all missionaries right where we are. If we aren't willingto do as He says, God will do this great plan of spreading the gospel without us but it will be done. The fellowship continued over dinner. The Whithall children, An- drea, 14, Caleb, 12 and Abby, 8, told of many of the customs while we ate. Evening worship services was again time to hear of things being ac- complished according to God's plan. Also many objects and items of clothing were shown and explained. All in all, it was a very educa- tional day concerning missionary work. We all thank Randy, Sandy and children for their loyalty to God as they are all missionaries. Sandv is the da.u&b.t.e r of. K.D.. and. Mar.iej.ta, hfldrcn lloisinglon ol ]\grll. So God does use our children and grandc ' ' fron~ every corner ol Ihis world. The Whitall family will be at the l'erkins Baptist ( hurch on Nov. 2rid during evening services. We encourage all to attend.
