The Surprise!

Sunday we were scheduled to be at American Baptist Fellowship Church in Temple, Texas. The Pastor and his wife told us that they had a Surprise for Zoi.....


We got up early to go to church in Temple. We took the bus this time because Bro. Harrod had to fix the brakes on our van. When we got to the church Bro. B and Mrs. Michelle told Zoi that they got her a guitar case full of candy but when she opened it up it was a new guitar!!! She was so excited to see her new guitar she had to sing the only song she has mastered on the guitar for a special!


The service started with us singing a couple of songs and then Bro. Harrod got into the Sunday School lesson on, "The Heart of a Queen." The Sunday School Lesson was so good that he continued that lesson right into the service.


After the service they had prepared a great feast for the whole church and then the people from our church came over and ate with us it was such a blessing to see everyone again. We always miss our home folks. After the meal We sang a few more songs which was a challenge on a full stomach but we never shy away from singing for the Lord! Then we got to hear Bro. Reed preach a great Sermon on the, "Foolishness of Preaching!" The church sent us home with leftovers galore and they have been a big blessing. The ladies there really know how to cook!

Then we went from there over to our home church just down the road and spent some time resting and preparing for the night service. Zeke sang his new song and it was a blessing then we got to get in one the question and answer service which was really good. Our pastor, Bro. Reed takes the Bible and answers Bible questions and questions from life as well. This is such a blessing to the family and encourages us all to be reading our Bibles.

After the services we were privileged to go and see Bro. Gentry in the hospital. He has been moved the recovering part of the hospital and only has about 3 pumps feeding him right now instead of the 12 pumps that were keeping him alive a couple of weeks ago. Praise the Lord we heard good reports of how God turned him around after he almost died with a blood clot. The blood clot dissolved and they say that he should be able to go home in another 2 weeks. Thank you God for miracles! We let Zeke sing his new song to him and it was an encouragement.
