I am in Texarkana (part Texas; art Arkansas. Get it?). Tonight, will be my last of three nights preaching for Pastor Reginald Reid and the Polly Chapel Missionary Baptist Church. The first two nights of the meeting have been great. Pastor Reid, a new friend, has been a warm and gracious host. And the worship services have been very warm and encouraging, which make for a “in season” setting to preach in. The Lord is doing a great work here through Pastor Reid and the Polly Chapel family.
Please pray for the final night of this meeting. And continue to cover Pastor Reid and Polly Chapel in your prayers.
