There is so much that I would love to share about our recent trip to Mebane, NC. For today I think it would be the love and the joy my heart feels of how welcomed we were.
How my heart is praising God for the faithful presence of the Gospel I so beautifully encountered at Tabernacle Baptist in Mebane, NC. Oh, I thank God for the elderly ladies that so embraced me. Their fragrance of Christ and faithful presence is an inspiration to all of us who name the name of Jesus and love and serve Him.
The church was made up of such a diversified group of people. There were young and old, black and white, teenagers & toddlers. Many of the older ones had been there all their life. But the older people possessed such an amazingly youthful and vigorous spirit!
Tabernacle Baptist isn’t caught up in the national debates that go on within the church, but they’re just busy serving God! They participate in helping with a 24/7 Rescue Mission for men which also has a Pregnancy Center for Women. Every summer the Pastor & his wife have what is called their “Mobile Bible School” They travel to different churches and take their Bible School with them. This is a ministry! WOW! What a ministry. These people aren’t old…They’re serving Jesus!
They gave us much more than you can even imagine. We were treated like royalty. The folk’s place where we stayed was the nicest place we’ve ever been. If I didn’t know better I would have surely thought Bro. Mark was my husband’s long lost brother. Do you know how it feels to know you’re really welcomed? The kindred spirit just did our heart good!
My husband and I have always felt the Lord made us to help others in life’s journey in a very meaningful way & to point others to Christ – but we came back to Ky feeling so cared for!
Tabernacle is surely a sign of God’s blessing!
