worship service... We all gave a Texas Whoop for Brother & Sister Ogbu...
And then it's over... Brother Barkman is here giving the "Sending Forth" just
after the last Lord's Supper... Let's remember what God did here in these three days... But let's also look forward
to next year when it will be a greater Conference.

During Conference there was a bulletin board with many of our Dayspring Ministers,
envelopes from our out of U.S. Ministers... and several flyers from Africa with our Archbishop's picture on them....
We also had a map showing that Dayspring Ministries International is operating
in 29 Countries... As of July 13, 2004 the number has risen to 32 countries in less than two years... WHAT WILL CHRIST DO
IN FIVE YEARS IF HE WAITS TO RETURN???
