I had a great weekend with the friendly members of the Fremont Hills First Baptist Church. I have to say that it is often difficult to assess the success of a weekend revival at the end of the weekend. I suppose the real assessment won't take place for several weeks or months. By then, I'll be on to other churches for other events and other revivals. It can be difficult and frustrating to be task oriented instead of results oriented, but moving on is what I am called to do.
Next weekend I'll be at another of our association churches. This is a small rural church that is currently without a pastor. I have been there twice in the last couple of months. The last time they mentioned that they had two youths that needed to be baptized and asked if I could come back to baptize them. Next Sunday is the first week I had available so I'll be there for the morning service, an after church meal and then we'll head to the creek for an old fashioned baptism! I am pretty excited about it!
Then vacation. Then a school show. Then the association annual meeting. Then another revival. Then ...
