Notes & Transcripts

When a fire destroyed the Poyen Missionary Baptist Church in Arkansas, the congregation had no place to gather for worship. Youth pastor James Green said the pastor called him and he was frantic because the church was burning. He rushed over, but Green said the fire was too intense and there was nothing he could do. The next day, he was discouraged because the church had no place to worship and he did not even have a Bible to use to teach the youth. That night they meet in the parking lot and the move helped them focus on the future. Green said the church had outgrown the building and the fire will help them grow. He added, “This is a minor setback to a major comeback. I do not understand why, but God does and there’s a purpose for everything. We will move forward.” —Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
