I got to tell you, the friends that I have through church are absolutely amazing. When they get going doing God’s work it’s like they’re unstoppable. Last night we had put together a homecoming for our church. This church used to be a flourishing one with well over 200 members. We’re blessed on a great day now to have 30 people now, and that’s usually when we are hosting a pot luck. It seems like many churches are suffering currently with the loss of members. It almost as though people have forgotten about God entirely. Last night we were extremely blessed to have a hundred plus people at this spaghetti homecoming. We had a couple of really good singers that got up on stage to praise God with beautiful voices. I wish that our church would have that many people in attendance every week. I firmly believe that we will again have a thriving church. God is good and faithful, especially when we submit our plans to him. “Heavenly Father you know our hearts desire. We would love to have a church overflowing with new and old members. Last night we had prayed for just one person to show up but you answered our prayers with a blessing of over 💯!!!! Thank you for listening to our prayers. In Jesus name we pray amen.
