The Church in Holtville.  Despite Brother Sam not being able to speak to the church, they gather and listen to recorded sermons.  Pray for the Lord of harvest to send them a faithful and loving servant to feed them rich, sound gospel food.  Elder Arvell Charles is now the church's co-pastor and preaches there on second and fourth Sundays of each month.  Thank the Lord for Brother Arvell's labors, and pray for the Lord's rich blessings on him and his labors there.
