Foothills Baptist Church

Foothills Baptist Church in Hardy, Arkansas was our next stop.  Saturday morning, we got together with the church family for prayer and a big breakfast at a restaurant in Cherokee Village.  For a whole family Sunday School class, I was able to introduce the church family to Rosie and the story of Ruth as God took the pieces of her life and made something beautiful out of her future as she sought to serve the one true God.  For the morning service, I preached out of the book of Acts on the Life of Paul and Silas as they shared the gospel with the Philippian jailer.  Then the church came together for some fellowship and a potluck dinner.  In the evening I preached on the living portrait with demoniac of Gadara out of the Gospel of Mark.
