Follow the Lamb
In January 2011 when the Brookings Church invited the community to a Revelation Now seminar, they did not anticipate the overwhelming results.
More than 50 guests attended many if not all of the 22 nights of meetings. Jac Colon presented the seminar with topics ranging from "Angel Warfare" to "The Unpardonable Sin." ‘dena Colon provided the inspirational music in song. Jac Colon ended each meeting with the salutation of "Follow the Lamb." This became the thread that wove the presentations together to create a powerful and insightful study through the Word of God.
A grandmother told of how her grandson had asked questions about the mark of the beast just prior to receiving the invitation to the meetings. The timing was perfect.
One night each week home-baked cookies were offered to attendees. This provided an opportunity to meet with new friends and get acquainted.
"These people are so friendly, whatever they have, I want to catch it!" says June, an attendee.
Much prayer and planning, visitations and unseasonable dry and sunny weather led to a great turnout. The Holy Spirit worked among both church members and guests.
Sixteen people joined the church organization, including three generations in one family that were baptized together. In addition there are several who are continuing to study with Jose Galvez, pastor.
Follow up includes a study in Revelation conducted by Galvez and a Bible marking class conducted by Bob Biegel, Adult Sabbath School teacher. "I was very blessed by the whole presentation. It was very well done," says Biegel.
