Reflection & More . . .
That yearly, scrumptious Holiday Luncheon
Is not just meant for joyous munchin’ . . .
Therefore this year, who would appear?
But two merry Santas and one lonely Reindeer.
One Santa, so merry, led us in great song,
The other one supported, intoning along.
When the Santa got ready the gifts to give away,
The Reindeer took action without much delay.
In order to take the heaviest bag,
He jumped on the challenge, He did not much lag.
(And He lugged other bags,
and others helped, too!)
Though the gifts were meant to be a reward,
This recipient feels strongly to give her regard
To those who arranged and brought to success
This fun-filled occasion that others did bless.
My personal “Thank-you” for the pretty and
useful “Heater,” “The Glorious Pink Stuff” and
the contents of the envelope.
God’s blessings to all!

This is a report from our brother Sylvester Imogoh on a recent Bible lectership at their congregation in Nigeria. Please continue to pray for these efforts to spread the gospel and for those who are involved. For the elders, Ken D
Our Bible Lectureship yesterday (Nov 27) was very good. Attendance was 293 adults. There were 110 children so we had to arrange them to have Bible class separately in the Children Building. Everything worked out very well.
The lessons were good. We baptized 2 after the program. And we baptized 2 more after worship today from among the visitors (of the 293 adults, 93 were invited persons who are not yet members of the church). We are already receiving reports in the community of how impressed those who attended were because they learned lessons they have not been hearing elsewhere. One of the persons we baptized today is physically challenged. She works with crutches.
We have been working crazy schedules. two of our brothers went down before we finished yesterday. One of the first speaker Daniel Amaize has had a fever, And it got worse and the second brother is the interpreter Ayo Alade. This morning I went to visit them in their homes. Daniel could not come to church this morning because he was on IV infusion but the other brother was in church. I will give you more information in time.
Give my regards to everyone, Sylvester
