A small number gathered in Jim’s home again this week. After up to date reports Graham spoke on the Cities of Refuge from the Old Testament. There followed a lovely time of prayer and worship. Several brought their own personal contributions during this part and there was a rich presence of God with us. We give thanks to Him who provides refuge for us in the storms of life.
We had a slightly smaller number than usual but still were encouraged to see several newer faces with us again this week.
We began with a short time of singing followed by a testimony from James to salvation, baptism in the Spirit and deliverance, and an up to date report from Alan concerning the work of God in his life. Both were very encouraging.
Diana Rutherford preached on the importance of having a personal relationship with Christ rather than just having a belief in God. This was what would hold us through the storms of life. She made comparisons between the Old and New Testament with the coming of Christ. There followed an excellent prayer and worship time. There was much personal ministry with singing, laughter and dancing. It was truly wonderful to be released into His wonderful presence and to find His joy. God is good!
Airdrie folks took to the streets tonight with leaflets advertising the Struthers Church local meeting and the upcoming Will Graham Hope Crusade. Others remained in the hall to pray. We managed to deliver to a good number of doors. Elaine and her team came across a group in the street, one of whom came to church back in 1993. He still remembers meeting the Presence of God through prayer with Hugh Black, and still speaks of the effect it had on Him. We pray that we will see him again at our meeting in the near future. It was good to be about God's business and folks were fired up for the work concerning the salvation of souls. The prayer team also found God richly with them as they interceded for the work. Pray we see much fruit in the near future! 🙏🏼
