October in Oklahoma is full of color and activity. To enhance all that joy, the Duncan Seventh-day Adventist Church invited the community to attend a Family Fun Day on Sunday, October 17, 2017. The church accomplished some mighty public relations by offering blood pressure checks along with free food and clothing. They also provided entertainment with singers, music, and a bouncy house for the children. The children were entertained thoroughly with their special play area. They also offered a basketball tournament, and the winners won gift cards. The Duncan community was introduced to some healthy and fun family alternatives on that October day. Invitations to the upcoming Revival and Bible study event in November were also shared with everyone that attended the Family Fun Day.
Pastor Gregory Stinson invited Pastor Emanuel Baek, Oklahoma Conference Evangelist, for that week-long Revival and Bible study. His Bible-based messages covered powerful topics regarding Revelation, prophecy, and the state of the dead. Participants were blessed with his easy to understand presentations and happy that he stayed each evening to visit and answer their questions. These series of outreach events, just like previous ones this year, saw the Lord bless with several baptisms. Bonnie and Bart Johnson, Peggy Roberts, and Josh Whipple each surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ and joined our church. October and November were banner months, as was the year 2017, for the Lord and the Duncan congregation in this small town in Southwest Oklahoma.
