This morning I was up early and spent some time with the LORD and His Word. GOTTA LOVE THE OLD KING JAMES BIBLE! Truths galore in a dark day brighten every thing in life. We are all just a breath away from eternity and this will all be forgotten. So cheer up child you'll soon be dead. Ha! Not so bad to go to Heaven.
I showered and dressed and Called some of my converts to make sure they were up and ready. I have had a great week of soul winning with 10 precious people trusting Christ. I had 5 lined up for church this morning.
|Marci & her Best Western staff|
As I was leaving my room I noticed one of the cleaning ladies in the hall way. Her name is Rose. I said to her, "I am so sorry that you have to work on Easter Sunday!" She teared up and said, "So am I!" I gave her a Gospel tract and began talking to her. Soon, Latonya walked by and quipped, "Don't forget to pray for me pastor!" To make a long story short, soon I had the entire staff around me in the hall way telling the resurrection story of Christ.
Then a door opened down the hall and it was their boss Marci. I thought to myself, "Oh my goodness she'll be upset and stop me from giving the Gospel to her workers." I quickly told her who I was and what I was doing. She did not smile or give any note of approval, but quickly walked toward all of us. I thought well I tried any way.
She came into the middle of us and said, "Pastor, you take all the time you need." Wow! So I did take all the time I needed. In a few minutes of going through Scriptures about the resurrection story, all of them bowed their heads and prayed out loud to receive Christ.
|Pastor Shawn Cuthbertson|
I drove to church on cloud 9. In fact I passed the flying Nun on my way to church. Pastor Cuthbertson has been the pastor of LIBERTY BAPTIST CHURCH, Pine Bluff, Arkansas, for 3 1/2 years. The church is 33 years old and was started in a brush harbor meeting. They have been at their current location for 28 years. Brother Cuthbertson was saved in this very church. When he became pastor he had 26 people with 22 of those being over 60.
In spite of a thunder storm this morning there were over 100 folks in church. Several were saved in the service with 3 following the LORD in baptism. The church was filled with young couples and young people. This is a good man of God and he is a personal soul winner.
I will be preaching tonight at 6 pm. Also, I will be here Monday and Tuesday for special services. The services will start at 7 pm each night. Tuesday morning the day services will begin at 9 am. If you are in the area please come and join us.
GOTTA LOVE CHURCH!
