Sunday was a great day at Ellisville First Assembly. We had two great services and wonderful crowds considering the extenuating circumstances. Two men from the church passed away Friday night and that was a hard blow to the church. One of the men was 96 and has not been able to attend church for many years. We have never met him before.
The second brother was a pillar in the church and his loss is keenly felt by everybody. Bro. Glen Atwood was 81 years old and taught the men's Bible class for many years. He was a father figure to many of the folks and his sudden passing is hard to believe. Bro. Glen was at the wild game supper Friday and I visited with him some that night and I am so glad that I did.
Both funerals are today and Pastor Kenny Morris is preaching both of them. It will be a long day for him and the family and church folks. Please keep them all in your prayers.
Even with all of that, we had wonderful services all day. God was moving in the altars and folks were getting help from the Lord. We always have a great move of God in the altars here and I know it will only get better all week.
Bro. Marty Millikin is having surgery today so do not forget to pray for him.
God bless you all.
