Missionary Gloria Ward and a friend from Atlanta left Friday to attend a ladies conference in Memphis.

Early Saturday morning, they left for Blytheville, Ark., to assist in a Bible quizzing where 300 or more youth from different parts of the country were in the quizzing that was sponsored by Cedine Bible Ministry.

East Tennessee Community Service Federation Convention met last Saturday, Oct. 13, at Sevier Street Seventh-day Adventist Church. Seventy people attended this convention from Morristown, Greeneville, Chattanooga, Knoxville and Cleveland. This was a great day for everyone who attended this convention.

Their service opened with Sabbath school at 9:15 with Elder Ruby Jean Boyd, who is superintendent. The spoken word for the morning worship service was delivered by Pastor Nathan Williams.

At the end of this service, Elder Ruby Jean Boyd was called up front. She was so surprised. The pastor had members to surround her as they presented her with a plaque, a beautiful corsage and made her mother of the church.

Jean was so thankful and blessed to have this honor bestowed upon her. Pastor Robert Mann and his wife from Brownville were Jean’s guest last Tuesday through Friday.

Get-well wishes to Willene Gordon, she has been a patient in Oak Ridge Methodist Medical Center.

We are wishing Bo Smith a speedy recovery. He has been a patient in Roane Medical Center.

On Sunday, Oct. 28, annual Women’s Day is all day at St. Mary’s Baptist Church. Morning message will come from our first lady, Sister Elfredia Williams.

Music was by women’s day choir. Afternoon speaker will be Sister Danielle Scott from Oak Ridge. The afternoon service will begin at 3. Everyone is welcome. Sister Pat Taylor is women’s day chairwoman. The Rev. Jesse Williams is pastor.

Happy birthday wishes to Ray Knaff and to my niece, Pam Powell, who celebrated her birthday Oct. 18.

The Five Star Morning Praise Appreciation Service was a great success. The service was very spiritual. Braxton Chapel Choir, The Five Star Gospel Singers, Roane County Community Choir, were all great. Others were soloists, including Yvette Woods and Margie Moore.

Wings of Grace were young people who did two praise dance. They were the best. They received a standing ovation.

We thank God for all who supported these two men, Curtis Anderson and Roy Guther, and Alicia Harris, who is there when Roy must be out of town.

We thank Pastor Weaver and Bazeltown Baptist Church and all the church members and friends who came and supported these men. That’s love. May God bless all of you.

We must give thanks to Sybil Cannon. She was a great worship leader and for Tina Boyd, who was a great help to the committee and the Five Star Morning Praise.
