There is a great campaign going on in the Baptist churches of
Laurens county. 106 were received for baptism last week. Don't
forget the devil wants to stop this work and will use any one he
can to stop its progress.
This is the last week of the campaign. Hundreds will be saved if
professing christians will do their duty. Don't let the devil use
you. Get into the fight for righteousness.
