MAINE
Castle Hill - Sunday, July 21, 2013, was a beautiful day as friends and family gathered and sang "At the River" while three ladies were escorted into the Aroostook River by the boat landing and bridge at Washburn, Maine. The water was clear and cold as they made their way through the strong currents following several days of rain.

With the sun shining, they turned to face their family on the shore. Pastor Lucy Lovley, with assistance from her husband "Bev," proceeded to baptize Anita Moody of Woodland; Holly Preston and Shirley Kidney, both from Washburn.

Following the service, they returned to shore while the people there, led by Kristin McDaniels, sang "Amazing Grace." They were greeted by family and friends with hugs and dry towels. (Submitted by Holly Preston)

GEORGIA
Loganville - For the second year we had a revival in the Jackson Mobile Home Park just down the road from Hope Community Fellowship. About 125 people showed up - most of them from the park. The gospel message was presented; there were two different praise teams that led in worship; and the children put on a presentation of Noah's Ark. One young lady praised God in dance, three people accepted the Lord and Pastor Ross baptized five young people. We thank the Lord for what God is doing in this mobile home park. Pastor Ross has baptized 23 people from this park in the last year!

NOVA SCOTIA
Bear Point - During the past few weeks, Pastor Alvin McComiskey, conducted a series of sermons from the book of Ruth. The truths of this book were explained and the applications to us as Christians were expounded. Ruth was an unbeliever, and Boaz the kinsman redeemer. We were like Ruth; and Boaz has many similarities to Christ who is our Redeemer. The church’s Special Events Team organized a “wedding” to conclude the messages. “We’re Trading Hearts Today” was sung and then two church members dressed in costume to depict Ruth and Boaz
