Today was a good day for our church. Attendance is down due to summer vacations and the heat, still the worship service was wonderful. We began with a breakfast and I had four helpers (men) show up and when we were done the kitchen was clean. The service started with a baptism. We had four visitors who will most likely be back. We shared communion.
When we took the children my wife and I pick up on Sunday mornings home, a little girl thanked me, hugged my neck and gave me a kiss on the cheek.
There are rewards that money cannot buy in service to our Lord.
