It was a great blessing for us to again be at Bethel Church (last time was May, 2021).
We received the same loving welcome and fellowship as in past visits.
As always, Bethel Church did a great job in hosting this meeting.

We thank God for the good preaching and loving fellowship.

It was a great blessing for me (middle) to again be with these two precious brothers,
Bro. Tim Lawrence (left), and Bro. Mark Lawrence (right).
We love and are thankful for them and their precious familes.
