The Trout Creek Seventh-day Adventist church held an evangelistic meeting in Thomson Falls last spring. The meetings began at the Rex Theater and ended at the Trout Creek Seventh-day Adventist Church. On opening night we had 24 visitors and 25 members in attendance. On the second night we had 21 visitors, 3 of which were new to the meetings, with 30 members in attendance. We had a small group that only came on the weekends due to work issues, but we had a total of 42 registered visitors that come to at least one meeting. Without counting our weekend group we had 14 of our guests all the way through, many of them only missing one meeting and only one of them missing more than two meetings. We had a great time meeting and interacting with these folks throughout the series.
Five of our visitors accepted the Sabbath truth and three made a decision for baptism. Since the meetings ended, we have had eight of our meeting interests regularly attending church and our follow up Bible studies on Wednesdays. As a church we are engaged in six Bible studies with the interests that came from the meetings.
We praise the Lord for His goodness and faithfulness in blessing our efforts. I have had several members tell me what a blessing it was for them to go through these meetings and be reminded of the previous truths that we have as a church. The church members are so excited with the results of the meetings that they are planning on holding another series next year!
