Cottondale Meeting Begins With A Family Affair

The revival meeting at Crossroads Baptist Church began with excitement in both Sunday services. The morning service ended with at least seven years of prayers being answered as a man walked to the front during the Time of Decision and received Christ as his Savior. What a joyous time it was, but it didn't end there. At the close of the evening service this man's 8 year old grandson came forward to be saved! It would be an understatement to say the family and church members were excited! I must say it was certainly an honor and pleasure for the Lord to allow me to witness these family members coming to Jesus.

The music for the services is being led by Kyle Graham and Christy Mabrey, students at Baptist College of Florida in Graceville, Florida. They are doing a super job with the music. I'll post a video of one of their songs on this site tomorrow.

I've known Kyle for years as he is a member of First Baptist Church of White Springs, Florida. It's been wonderful to watch him grow from being an "on fire for Jesus" student at Columbia High School in Lake City to answering God's Call to ministry to hearing him preach at his home church in White Springs and now see him developing into a mature minister for our Lord.

Kyle and Christy are engaged to be married in May of this year. Christy is the daughter of Rev. Louie Mabrey, pastor of Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church in Lake City.

The meeting will continue at 6:30pm CDT tonight through Wednesday at Crossroads Baptist Church located at 3275 Highway 231 in Cottondale, Florida. For more information contact Pastor Mark Fejes at (850) 352-4559.

If you're in the area, I hope you'll join us. Who knows what the Lord will do before this week is over!
