Awesome Experience! The church is small, but well attended, and well organized.
Elder Shirley Scott began the day with an inspirational “Songspiration” by Pastor Lola Moore, followed by a thought provoking lesson, taught by Elder Benjamin Jones, Jr. –who reminded us that, “Repentance” is a call to renounce your sinful ways & to change your life…practical change, not just spiritual or intellectual change”; and “Baptism” should reflect change that can be seen by others… It is a change of who’s in charge—Christ or Satan“ Finally, Elder Jones asked, “How has your baptism into the SDA Church changed your life? Think about this…”If you were given the assignment to change the world, where would you start?” ANS: “Changing People — changes the world! – God calls us to walk in His way, not ours, through His Spirit and power. Sin is abnormal, not normal…We can have victory the same way and through the same power Christ did when He lived on the earth”. When we live like Christ lived, we can say, “it was good to have been in the house of the Lord”

And his desire was granted….God does care about the little things too!
