We had 4 different missionaries last night, 3 from India and 1 from Puerto Rico. The gentleman from Puerto Rico works with youth in his country, and he is an 'illusionist'.  He told us a story from the Bible, using his talent and it was quite amazing.  

He had an empty bag and as he told the story, he able to pull 'trophies' from the bag.  Each time he would show us the empty bag and then as he talked, he would pull a shiny trophy out, and at the end he had 6 trophies.  Where they came from and how he did it, I don't know, but as he said, he certainly held the attention of the youth and he got the Gospel to them, along with the illusion.

Tonight is the final night of the Conference and it has certainly been a blessing in so many ways.

This morning our best friends are coming to pick us up, and we are driving to a orchard down in Alabama for apples and apple cider.  This has become a yearly trip for us and we just enjoy the fellowship, as well as the apples.


HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY!
