A Practical Example of
an Active Church Book Service

On the weekend of November 19-21, 2021, the new church in Seminole, Texas hosted a small conference. Seminole is a small city in West Texas about a one-hour drive from both Odessa and Lubbock. The topic of the conference was from the book The Crucial Revelation of Life in the Scriptures.

The church in Seminole invited the surrounding West Texas churches and others who know the saints there. The total attendance was around 150 and included the churches in Odessa, Midland, Lubbock, Amarillo, Fort Stockton, Fort Worth, Irving, Houston, and others. Some even attended from Mexico.

In addition to enjoying the ministry of the word and the fellowship with one another, the book service of the church in Houston, in fellowship with the church in Seminole, functioned to offer ministry books, Bibles, and gospel tracts to the attendees. A book sales table was also set up that included Brother Lee’s book The Crucial Revelation of Life in the Scriptures in both English and Spanish. About thirty copies of this title were sold to the saints who wanted to enjoy the riches presented in the conference more fully.

Moreover, the church in Houston book service presented the church in Seminole with several boxes of used books to begin to build up a lending library. It was wonderful to watch as nineteen of the attendees checked out books to read.

Praise the Lord for the spreading of the churches, the building up of the Body of Christ, and the propagation of the ministry of the age!
