A wonderful steak dinner with all the trimmings was enjoyed by all. Special music was given by Bruce and Bethany Corbitt. Margie Hampton gave the auxiliary presentation. Jack Benschoter gave his testimony and how the Gideon's touch his life while he was in prison. Phil Hampton gave the Gideon Message and was a blessing to all. Chris Smith gave the benediction for the evening. I was blessed by all who gave of themselves and this was a perfect evening for me and many other pastors in our area. Thank You!
