I (Sal) wasn't able to be here (was in the cities for family "stuff"), but here was the report: We had about 3 guests and 10 volunteers to listen to an "excellent" guest speaker-Reverend Larry Campbell (see evangelifecenter.com) of Waupaci, Wisconsin. He is a missionary for Special Touch. The recorded offerring was $1.
"17"We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish," they answered.
18"Bring them here to me," he said. 19And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. 20They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 21The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children."-Matthew 14
