Greetings in the Name of our resurrected Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! I am so happy to know beyond any doubt that He truly HAS risen from the dead, and is alive today, manifesting Himself in the hearts of His children. For we truly are His Spoken Word sons and daughters of God, adopted into His Kingdom, by His Grace. Praise be unto His precious Name!
As the sun begins to warm the grounds here in Jeffersonville, and the dormant seed begins to bring forth new life, how could our minds not reflect back on our Savior that rose from the dead some 2,000 years ago. And I am so thankful to know His Message in this day, which truly PROVES there is an empty tomb in Jerusalem.
After praying very much unto the Lord about what to do for Easter this year, I felt it upon my heart that special services would be appropriate, especially after not having an Open House or functions for you last year. We have gathered through the emails, letters, and phone calls that there certainly is a great anticipation amongst the people for that.
Brother Billy and I had written to Brother Collins, Pastor of the Branham Tabernacle, in December informing him how the Lord had led us to have Easter services this year.
It was just announced that Brother Collins would also be holding Easter services at the Branham Tabernacle, thus, I do not feel it would be appropriate to have two services here locally, at the same time. Daddy was such an example to us, when he made the statement:
So I said, "Oh, I wouldn't go and our brother there. That wouldn't be right, two meetings at the same time." So I said, "Well, I just won't go then." 'Fore I signed up for anything, I just let it go. I let it go like that for a while.

I certainly feel the same way in my heart today, my friends.
If our Lord Jesus is willing and if He tarries, we will re-schedule our open house and our Easter services for next year.
Please keep us in your prayers.
