Back in the day I used to watch Saturday Night Live, back in the day I used to get in a lot of trouble on a Saturday night too, especially in a small town with not much to do. But last Saturday night we had a wholesome fun night. We had what our church calls a 4:19, Matthew 4;19 says “And He said to them, Come after Me [as disciples – letting Me be your Guide], follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men!” (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
It was a fun night full of fellowship. We had a fish fry and desert auction to raise money for our Youth Group to go to Mexico and build a Church for less fortunate people that don’t have a place to worship God at.
Not only did we get to eat fried catfish, hushpuppies, and fried pickles, we also got to bid on desert and that stole the show. I played the role of bidder, jacking up the prices. I made sure I had the funds available to cover in case I won the bid, but there were a few times I backed out of 100 dollar banana pudding. The banana pudding is really good and it was for a good cause. It was a success and we had a good time, as opposed to running the streets in a small town with one movie theater, and not too much else to do.
Not only did we have an awesome Saturday night, Sunday morning turned out pretty good too. Sunday morning the Holy Spirit was stirring in Church in full force. Three young men were baptized and saved and another joined the Church, God has BIG things planned for our Church and I am glad I am a part of it. Stay tuned for more fund raisers and to find out how the Youth Group Church building goes and if we can manage to top this last weekend.
