“Well,” I stated as we returned from Grove Hill, Alabama, “this is the last night, I guess.”
“Yeah, I guess so,” Felicity agreed.
We grabbed our things and headed inside.
“Good evening,” Pastor Mast greeted us. “It’s good to see you again.”
“Thank you,” I replied.
The prelude began at 6:27 that evening.
“Well good evening,” Pastor stated when the service began. “Let’s open with a word of prayer.”
Everyone bowed their head.
“Lord we thank You for this day and for Your Word. Bless this service we pray and give us traveling safety when we leave tonight. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
“Please take your hymn books and turn to hymn number 489; hymn number 489, ‘Glory to His Name’, please stand.”
“Down at the cross…” we started.
“You may be seated,” Pastor stated when the song was done.
We all sat down.
“Now, we’re going to do things a little different tonight,” Pastor Mast began. “As anybody does, we have questions. So before we close, we’re going to give everyone a chance to ask a question, and we’ll try to answer it. Afterwards we’ll sing another song, take a general offering, and then we’ll close and the refreshments and cookies will be available after the service.
“So what we’ll do is rotate speakers for the questions,” Pastor explained. “We’ll give each speaker a chance to answer three questions at a time, and if you have a specific question for a speaker, ask it at his turn, and if any one of you speakers has a comment on a specific topic, feel free to voice your opinion. So Brother Antoine, you’re first.”
“Turn me loose on the audience, eh?” Antoine asked.
“Who’s first?” Antoine inquired.
Someone raised their hand. Antoine nodded.
“Um, when this conference started,,” the person began, “you talked about Charity Ministries; could you explain exactly who that is?”
