THE FR1AR-EIDSON MEETING
AT THE BAPTIST CHURCH.
Idabel, McCurtain County, Oklahoma, Wednesday, November 20, 1918
The meeting has been in progress
since last Sunday night. The atten-
dance has been very fine under the
circumstances, many people are re-
ceiving God’s old time favor and
Measings ns a result of their faith-
fulness to the good Lord and to their
church. It is hard for some people
who claim to love the Lord, to realise
that such a co-operative effort as we
are trying to put forth for the sal-
vation of Idabel, is just the thing
most needed, but you must admit that
the majority of unsaved people in
Idabel care but little for your
churches, which is largely due to our
profound indifference, but if they
could see all the churches and Chris-
tian people of this town united in a
co-operative effort for their salvation
they would have a greater respect for
your various churches and much more
confidence in your Christianity, which
is much needed.
This is not a denominational meet-
ing, but a co-operative meeting for
the salvation of your town, and it is a
call to all the Christian people
of Idabel to get in touch with God and
this move, in order to show to the
lost town your unselfish interest in
their soul salvation, and whether the
Christian people of this town know
it, or do not know it the unsaved ones
are watching you, and may God help
you to manifest an interest that they
cant say about you what David did,
when he aid, “No man cares for my
ooul. There are only two reasons,
you can’t miss it, if you are either in
season or out of season so come on,
let go and let God this is your oppor-
tunity to help win the lost.
Services each night at 7 o’clock and
each morning at 10. Good music and

Sunday and Monday, December 1 and

county, should send one or more dele-
