Texarkana, Ark. » The Texarkana Seventh-day Adventist Church sign, “Why Pray When You Can Worry?” intended as a play on words and food for thought, caught the eye of passerby Simi Gamble, who stopped in to let the church know the sign was wrong. 

In the words of Daniel Supler, pastor, “Simi came in to correct us and he hasn’t left us yet.” Supler explained the intent of the sign and Gamble began faithfully worshipping with his new church family, attending their study groups and prayer groups. Gamble was baptized June 17, 2017, as a member of the family of God and the Texarkana Seventh-day Adventist Church.
