Audrey Simpson reported on the trip to feed over 2,040 students and members of the Jess Jennings Nehemiah Team. Fourteen members from First Baptist joined others at the luncheon. These student missionaries will form 52 teams to go to various countries worldwide to spread the word of God. This is an awesome task and these young people need prayers.
Pam Jones presented the program, giving her testimony and sharing her experience as a cancer survivor. Along her journey she has met others having the same experience. She had two such ladies, Carol Harcrow and Trisha Noah, from Hokes Bluff with her. After playing a CD, “Blessings Come Through Tears,” she quoted Romans 12:12, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” As she closed she asked the question, “Are you blessed?”
Ramon closed with prayer. Thirty-four members and 11 guests enjoyed fellowship around the dining tables. Guests, along with Pam, Carol and Trisha, were W. A. Nickelson, Savannah Thornberg Caleb Smith, Aniah Jones and Amanda Smart and her three children.
