It is exciting to think about the week ahead here at Lafayette! Tonight, we have the State of the Church address where we outline some goals and our 50th Anniversary in September. Then Wednesday evening starts our Annual Mission Conference – We Support Israel and we have an excellent line up of preachers. Next Saturday evening at 5:30 PM we will have our international carry in dinner with all kinds of dishes with international cuisines. Finally, we anticipate a wonderful day next Sunday with Bro. Seth Demarest to Uganda and Bro. Dave Hermance speaking. What a week that’s planned! Please ask God to show you what your Faith Promise should be for 2018! Please pray Satan will not have the victory; he hates what is going on here! Praise God and shame on the devil! This past week has brought some heartache to some. Mrs. Brown’s father passed away Friday night; he had been ill for some time and is enjoying heaven this morning. Bro. Smith’s Aunt passed away yesterday; she too is enjoying heaven this morning. The Girls Home had a bus accident and lost everything as the bus burned to the ground in a matter of minutes. Please pray for these folks as they grieve the loss of a loved one!
