The church will not die out if Otter Creek has anything to do with it--We blessed about 35 babies last night in our annual baby blessing. The last few years have averaged 35. I think there are 30 young women about to have babies soon.
Such a blessing to see young parents up there who are committed to rearing their
children in the Lord's care. Who knows what lurks in the minds of those precious children? Who will be the tribe's best preacher? How many will be elders? How many will be Bible class teachers? Scientists who find a cure for cancer? Teachers who crack the ghetto? Musicians who write new hymns for their generation?
It is exciting to contemplate and pray about.
