Selwin Brings A Few Back

Cowboy Selwin
Well, it's official.  We are in heat wave season.  Whoa, talk about fun in the sun! We almost got a tornado a few nights ago but luckily the air wasn't hot enough and the winds died down. Our power went off three times so our flashlights were brought into action.  Yep, that was exciting … scary, but exciting.

We had a rough week but despite our problems we saw the Lord work miracles for us as we were able to visit with quite a few members who haven't been to church in a long time. I'm talking like forever ago but these people were so happy to see us, including one Native American who thought his name was no longer on the records because he hadn't been visited in a while. Guess what?  His wife has the same first name as our mom and she pronounces it the same way.  How awesome is that? And, they are willing to come to church, which is even better news. Yep, you best believe the Lord truly does work in mysterious ways. I also had the opportunity to speak in church again but this time I just spoke about "love" and from reports it was a good talk.

Jacob 5:70-71 reads:
70 And it came to pass that the Lord of the vineyard sent his servant; and the servant went and did as the Lord had commanded him, and brought other servants; and they were few.

71 And the Lord of the vineyard said unto them: Go to, and labor in the vineyard, with your might. For behold, this is the last time I shall nourish my vineyard; for the end is nigh at hand, and the season speedily cometh; and if ye labor with your might with me ye shall have joy in the fruit which I shall lay up unto myself against the time which will soon come."

As compared to the world we are definitely very few but our efforts are great because we have the Lord on our side. This is His work we are doing and in time we will have joy in His kingdom on high.
