An unusually rich presence of the Lord was evident during
the Easter Convention at Pinecrest. Many said that their lives
had been changed through the deep inner working of the Holy
Spirit that they experienced.
A Ministers meeting followed with about 70 ministers attending.
This was truly a special time of refreshing for each one who
came. A special meeting is held for ministers twice each year,
in the Spring and Fall seasons.
The last week of school before graduation is set aside for
special services and prayer for those who are graduating.
Each graduate is specifically prayed for by the teaching staff
of the Bible School along with several ministers who are invited
to come for this special time.
The presence of the Lord increased each service, and lives
were touched and eternally affected for His purposes. Some
of these services lasted until two AM, and some still lingered
in the Chapel. This has been an outstanding school year.
The Memorial Day and July 4th conferences were another very
special time. Almost every person who attended received something
special from the Lord. There are many indications of a fresh
new visitation from the Lord at Pinecrest for which we are
most thankful and greatly anticipate.
Much effort is being made to improve the facilities and rooms
in the buildings that all who come might feel as welcomed
and comfortable as possible. We are praying concerning additional
rooms to accommodate those who presently are being turned
The Summer Vacation Bible School term will take place while
this is being printed. Many families come to Pinecrest during
the month of July for this special time. Also, there are classes
for children of all ages.
Youth week at Pinecrest is becoming a very special week in
which young people meet with the love and power of the Lord
and their lives are greatly affected.
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you" Matt 6:33.
The latter part of verse 32 reads, "For your Heavenly
Father knoweth that you have need of all these things."
It is as though the Holy Spirit is saying, "You can allow
your heart's deep longings for the things of God the necessary
time to come apart and seek Him, and not only will you meet
with Him, but your needs also will be met."
Pinecrest is set apart as a place where you might come apart
to meet with the Lord. It is our prayer and desire that you
will take advantage of our invitation and come.
