We had a guest preacher today: Mervyn Christopher. It was great to be in church.
In the morning service. We thought about one of the outstanding members of early Christianity. He encouraged others and sold a field to help with the collection for people in need. He went on long journeys telling others about Jesus Christ. We were challenegd to be a support and encourage others.
