|Dr. Jeff Owens|
Tonight Dr. Jeff Owens and I had the honor of preaching for Dr. Ron Westmoreland who pastors the BETHEL BAPTIST CHURCH of Walls, MS.
The first time I preached with Dr. Jack Hyles was in December of 1978 for his father Dr. Roy Westmoreland when their church was located in Memphis, TN. I preached with Dr. Hyles for 22 years and with him the last time he spoke in Mexico at Dr. Tommy Ashcraft's church. This conference was dedicated to the memory of Dr. Hyles. Dr. Owens and I taught lessons on Dr. Hyles the preacher and church builder.
I preached my sermon "GOD'S SIMPLE PLAN FOR A SOUL WINNING CHURCH" and Dr. Owens preached his sermon "SPIRIT FILLED EARS." The altars were full and the resolve was obvious. The two sermons dove tailed into one great truth! What a great night! After the service we had a time of fellowship with the pastor, his staff, and area pastors. GOTTA LOVE THE SERVANTS OF GOD!
Tomorrow morning at 8:30 the film "FRESH OIL" featuring Dr. Hyles will be played in the auditorium. Then preaching begins at 9:30 followed by an Q & A after the luncheon. If you are in the area please make plans to join us. If not please come Tuesday night for the 7 pm service. Hope to see you then.
