Dear Church Family,
Thankful for the promise of the special resurrection of those who have died in the faith of the 3rd Angels message.
Graves are opened, and “many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth … awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.” Daniel 12:2. All who have died in the faith of the third angel’s message come forth from the tomb glorified, to hear God’s covenant of peace with those who have kept His law. “They also which pierced Him” (Revelation 1:7), those that mocked and derided Christ’s dying agonies, and the most violent opposers of His truth and His people, are raised to behold Him in His glory and to see the honor placed upon the loyal and obedient.

10. Pastor Nate and I along with our families attended the North American Division Called Convention in Lexington, KY this week. It was exciting to connect with classmates from college and friends from across the division. I also learned about some exciting outreach tools and resources for evangelism that we can explore for Greeneville. We also had a chance to visit with Hope Channel leadership about considering the Explore the Future series that was recently filmed with Little Light Studios. Pray that God leads in this.
