It is hard to believe that this is the last full day of Bible Conference 2013. The time has passed so quickly.
Once again all three speakers presented well prepared messages from the Word of God. Dr. Hamilton taught about the life of Joseph indicating that 12 of the last 14 chapters of Genesis contained his story. Commissioner Israel Gaither spoke from two passages, one from the Old Testament and one from the New. It was a reminder that people will not always receive the Word of God gladly. We as believers must not add or take away from the Scriptures.
Commissioners Raymond and Merlyn Cooper wrote and presented a tribute to General John Gowans. Many of the memorable songs from various musicals in which the team Gowans and Larsson worked together on were featured. My favorite was the duet sung by the lady and the drunk who came to the Mercy Seat, “we’re all seeking the same savior.” It was a wonderful evening and the Coopers were simply amazing.
This is the last Bible Conference Commissioner Barbara and I will be a part of as active officers. We have had the privilege of putting together five Bible Conferences as Program Secretaries working with the legend, Mrs. Pat Germany and the past two years leading the Bible Conference as territorial leaders.
