The Christmas Cantata at New Life was a blessing. &nb=
sp=3BRebekah and I were able to lead a visiting couple to Christ. &nbsp=3BP=
ray that we can get them to start attending church faithfully. &nbsp=3BThey=
found us on the internet and were told by a friend that they needed to att=
end a Fundamental Baptist Church. &nbsp=3BThey actually did not know it was=
the night of the cantata. &nbsp=3BGod is good. &nbsp=3B
