Boy, God is blessing! We just re- turned from the Promise Keepers meeting in Dallas, and it was fabu- loust We went along with Eden Chapel-Lost Creek, the Nazarene Church in Stillwater, and about 69,960 other men. For this country boy, it was awesome to stand on the fifty yard line of Texas Stadium and hear 70,000 men praising God by singingAmazing Grace accapella. Heaven is going to be a wonderful place! A personal thank you to Max Rudd for inviting us to go with them! Sunday morning was a carry over from the trip.

Never in the history of man- kind has there ever been the move of God on His men as there is today. In over 20 cities around the country, football stadiums have been fill- ing up with men for the sole purpose of praising God; over one million men have answered the call this year. One of the speakers said he had been in Texas Stadium for a lot of exciting moments, but none as excit- ing as men getting together to love God, and to love one another! Sunday morning in all the rain we had a full house! It was good to see everyone come out, and to have the visitors that came to see what we are about. Come again! We had several come forward for prayer and rededication, and some for baptism. We will be having another baptismal service on the 11th of November! Praise the Lord for all the use of the new baptistry is getting. And thank you to Wayne and Jannette Hennis for building and providing the baptistry. Sunday night was more of the same! The men who went on the Prom- ise Keepers trip each got up and testified of their experience. Twenty from Mehan went and each one had some wonderful things to share with us. God is good! Wednesday night we are going to the Arthur pond for a hot dog roast. It will start about 6:30. Everyone is invited to come out and share in this special time of the year. It is so right for campfires, and hay rack rides, and wiener and marshmallow roasts. It is just good to get out in God's creation, and to think about Him, and to have fun together! We celebrate this time of year and many times we do not even know why. It started out as a religious holiday, November 1st is "All Saints Day." It is a day to remember all those who have died and have gone on to heaven. It is a wonderful thing to celebrate. Heaven is a glorious place. Somewhere along the lir/e, Satan and his. demons decided to cause people to concentrate on the death and dying, and all the morbid stuff. They wanted to take away from the glory of eternal life. They shit ed from November 1st, the Holy Day, to Hallowed Day Eve, or Hallowed Eve, thus Halloween. We celebrate All Saints Day around our house. We still have hay rack rides, wiener roasts, and enjoy God's creation, but we concentrate on good things! Praise God. First Baptist Church of Perkins Wanda Earp A new spirit arrived when the group of men returned from the Prom- ise Keepers this weekend and it was wonderful to know this had been such a blessing to them and then to have it affect all of us. CliffJohnson, Terry Spence, Garry Wiliams and Jim Bickell gave some of the accounts of this trip they made to Dallas along with some 60,000 other men. In the busses and every other thing they shared, a new brother hood has been formed, camaraderie was evident and a new zest for service to God. Our special music was a solo, Creator, done well by Scott Wilson. Pas- tor Albert May chose as his Sermon title, The Rest Of The Story (Isaiah 7:7-9.)
