Harmony Share Report for 7-27-14

Prepared by Retired Pastor Bobby Lamb, Harmony Baptist Association

***RLW Prison Ministry

Both services at RLW had high attendance.

…Sunday evening, we were blessed to baptize five men and celebrate the

Lord's Supper. As I've done for some time now, we have followed Jesus

example and admonition to wash each others' feet. My washing the men’s

feet has taken on a spiritual dimension with responses by both the men

involved and the men in the congregation.

…God is blessing us all in a new way. God is also using my wife, Rene's

poems and Lee Bowers beautiful singing to inspire and lift up our men.

Praise God.

Dr. Harold Mitchell of FBC Pine Bluff reporting.
