Good Weekend

The Lord blessed our little mission church this past weekend. Bellevue Baptist Church, First Baptist Church of Oakland (TN), and our Fayette Baptist Mission sponsored a block party at West Junior High School in Oakland this past Saturday, May 17th. We have been focusing our evangelistic efforts on the 369 new homes in the neighborhood surrounding this school. At the block party, 285 people registered, and 60 of those were volunteer workers. Eighteen of our folks from the mission attended, and seventeen of them wore their mission shirts and did volunteer work. In the photo, Rick is on the left, and Tom is on the right. Rick is one of our members, and Tom is on loan to us from First Baptist Church in Oakland. You can click on the photo to make it bigger.
We also started our Sunday School organization this past Sunday, May 18th. Eight men were in our men's class, and five women were in our women's class. In our worship service, one of the men who attended the block party came to our worship service for the first time. God is good!
