The last days of our gospel trip here in Lethbridge were very busy and full of enjoyment! On Thursday, February 8, we had another neighborhood children’s meeting. Because of a snow storm that came in, we had less children show up, but there were still three neighborhood children and four of our own children. We had a really fun time with them and sang songs and told a story about God’s creation. After the dinner, a couple of us went with some saints to visit a family they have been in contact with for a while. We had a very encouraging time of singing and the mother of this family told us that she enjoys these visits more than she enjoys their own assemblies with their church! We were so encouraged!

On Friday evening, February 9, brother Greg Spencer spoke to the saints concerning inoculation. We also watched a video about M. E. Barber that was so encouraging. We have a rich history in the Lord’s Recovery and we need to realize that we are standing on the shoulders of so many loving seekers that went before us!

On Saturday, February 10, we spent the whole afternoon with the young people. We went to the university gym and did some rock climbing and played basketball. The young people had a really good time. Then, after dinner, we had some fellowship to encourage the young people regarding service and getting a good education. Later, when we prayed in twos and threes, two young sisters prayed that the Lord would help them with their grades in school so that they can go to the Full-Time Training!

This morning, Lord’s Day, February 11, we had our last table meeting and prophesying meeting here with the saints in Lethbridge. Many saints came from Calgary (3 hours away) to enjoy the meeting and a love feast together with us. The prophesying this morning was a glorious culmination of the Christ we have all been enjoying over the past two weeks. In the afternoon, we had an encouraging word concerning our need for a vision of the recovery, the universal church, and the local church.

After our time in the afternoon, some local saints from Lethbridge went to visit a brother in Coaldale, whose wife was not yet saved; there was a young boy staying at their house. The saints preached the gospel to them and both the brother’s wife and the young boy got saved. The saints also gave the boy a Bible. Praise the Lord!

Overall, we have had a wonderful time here and we are sad that it has come to an end so quickly! But we are so happy to have had this opportunity to be built and blended together with the saints in Lethbridge and to labor in the word and on the gospel together with them.

Praise the Lord for a glorious two weeks!
