A Church Home
Jennifer Lewis manages a Subway restaurant in Texarkana, where she moved with her family six years ago. However, they were still praying to find a church home.
In 2016, Lewis began working at Subway, and that is where she met Jack Johnson, a church elder from the Texarkana Seventh-day Adventist Church. “Mr. Jack” as Jennifer calls him, often goes to Subway to get lunch for some of his workers. One Friday as he was leaving, he mentioned getting ready for the Sabbath. This caught Jennifer’s attention and she asked if he was a Seventh-day Adventist. As the conversation progressed, Lewis revealed that she had grown up in a Seventh-day Adventist home.
Lewis and her children were invited to church. “When we walked in the church, my kids and I said at the same time that it reminded us of the church back home,” she remembers. Now they have joined the church family and Jennifer says, “We have made this our home church and we have enjoyed every Sabbath day since. God knew just who to put in our path.”
