Services were blessed at the House of Prayer Sunday. A blessed Sunday school lesson was taught by Clare Franklin, and there was a blessed word from evangelist Shirley Benton. Her subject was, "Many Are Called, But Few Are Chosen," taken from Matthew 22:14. She asked the question, "Can God Choose You?" Evangelist Juanita Jones was our guest from St. Louis. Juanita was down for the homegoing services of Pearl King.
