MARIETTA, OH 45750 During the week of March 9-14, I was privileged to conduct a gospel meeting for the Lord's church at Pennsboro, WV. The meeting saw eight responses to the Lord's invitation. Seven wanted to be restored in their service to the Lord, the other was a young lady who requested the prayers of the church to help her make the important decision to be baptized into Christ. This was a most joyful and rewarding week for me as a gospel preacher, and helped remind me that the gospel is the power of God unto salvation. Romans 1:16. J.D. Conley, 102 Laramie Road.
