                                                        THE EVENT OF HISTORY!
               Is there any question in the minds of any true follower of Jesus Christ that the greatest event of history is to be celebrated this coming weekend?  Without the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, there would be no such thing as a Christian, or a church, or the celebrations of Easter (or Resurrection Sunday).  For approximately 2,000 years the message of that first Resurrection morning (“He is alive!”) has been spreading around this earth, bringing the good news of forgiveness, redemption and eternal life.  Those of us who have received that Good News and experienced the grace, mercy and love of the true and living God rejoice for His blessings and want to share it with those who as yet do not have the hope we find in Him.  May the Lord bless you with a very special time of rejoicing over the fact that He is alive and living in and through you!
                Also we have just gone through the spring break week with several of our churches making mission trips.  The trip sponsored by Paluxy Baptist Association to Juarez, Mexico, was a great blessing!  We had 18 people from 6 churches participating this year.  Much was accomplished as far as various projects, but the highlight was on Wednesday evening’s service when 3 adults trusted the Lord!  Other services saw times of one-on-one conversations and praying together about spiritual needs as inquirers sought more information regarding following Christ.  The words of Jesus are true—“the fields are ripe for harvest” (John 4:35); and “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few” (Matt. 9:37).  We are already preparing for the summer trip July 21-28 when we will conduct VBS, do various construction projects and lead Bible studies and worship services. Perhaps the Lord would lead you to join us on that trip and see firsthand what He is doing in the neighborhood of La Mision in Juarez!
                On April 21, PBA will partner with Courtyards Retirement Center (801 Calinco Dr, Granbury) by having a pancake supper and silent auction.  It will be held at Courtyards (see more details elsewhere in this issue of the Beacon).  Proceeds from the supper and auction will be equally divided between the activity fund at the Courtyards and our mission fund.  Tickets are available for $ 6.00 for adults and $ 4.00 for children. If you have items you would like to donate for the silent auction, please call the office (817-579-5111).  Come to the Courtyards for a good meal, good fellowship and support two good causes.

                Thank you for your participation in Kingdom work through your local Baptist Association!  May the Lord bless you as you continue walking with and serving Him!
