New Congregation

"The Lord's church in Cypress-Fairbanks (Houston, Texas) began last spring. Its first meeting was in the Post School in Jersey Village. We held our first meeting in August with Billy Dollar preaching, and closed another meeting in late November with James Wilson from Home Owned Estates. There were at least 100 visitors present during the week of this effort, many of whom were not members of the church, and many from unsound churches. We reached a new attendance record of 50 the first Sunday night and had nearly 100 present on Thursday night (Thanksgiving). Several have been restored here recently. We are sending to Ray Votaw a check for his travel fund to South Africa and we continue to send to three other evangelists each month. We reach at least 5,000 people on four rural routes with a publication we send about twice monthly. We are buying property on the Hempstead highway but are determined never to let a material building program hinder the work of sending the gospel to those at home and abroad. Three of us do the preaching here and in addition we have capable teachers and an excellent songleader. We sing the old songs heard in churches a hundred years ago. Pray for our work here." Written for the church and submitted by: W. D. Medlin, Rt. 9, Box 1077, Houston 40, Texas.
