The past couple of days we have been in Merced, California for our Western District Conference. My! What a Time! The Apostolic Tabernacle and Pastor and Sis. Sam Emory were the host for this conference and did a superb job. If you have never heard their choir sing you owe it to yourself to go and listen. WOW! They do know how to “get down”!

The conference itself was good too. Tuesday Night started off the conference with the Foreign Missions service. Bro. Sones from the country Spain preached and blessed us all with his zeal and compassion for souls. God has blessed them mightily in Spain and we are rejoicing with them. Wednesday morning the ministry took care of business and the ladies had a time of fellowship and worship together. Sis. LaQuita Mullings (ladies president) did a great job in putting this day together. I was honored to speak to the ladies today. There is no place I’d rather be then with people of like precious faith. I love my sisters in the Lord and it was a privilege to be part of this service. Wednesday Night was the ordination service where men and women are ordained by the presbytery. It was another great time. Elder Paul Price, Elder Harvey Cantrell and Bro. Ron Mullings preached the ordination service and it was tremendous. These are all men that I highly esteem. Superintendent Allen Abbey gave the charge and then the presbytery laid hands on them and prayed for them. It was very special. I don’t think I have ever been in an ordination service that I was not touched. It is a very special time.

Among all of this was great fellowship with our friends and also making new friends. The Kingdom of God is full of GREAT people. Perfect? No! But good. We are all trying to do the right thing and make an impact in our world for God.

We will be headed toward home tomorrow to continue on the work God has called us to do. God bless and have a great day!
