Harvest Apostolic
• Pastor Pullens preached “The Best Unification Story” “It’s a God thing” (Genesis 37:3-9)
• Joseph was the son of Jacob and he was loved greatly by his father. He was sold into slavery by his brothers but God gave him favor throughout his time away from his family. It was a God thing how Joseph was put into a position to later help the very brothers that had taken him away from the only life that he had known. In all you face each day, know that it’s a God thing and go on about your day.

Lystra Church of Christ
• Bro. Josh Grooms preached about Simon the Sorcerer in Acts 8. Simon thought he could use money to buy the power of the laying on of hands that the apostles had. When Peter told him to repent and pray for forgiveness, Simon asked Peter to pray to the Lord for him, rather than pray to the Lord himself. Christians personally need to pray sincerely, humbly asking for forgiveness, and always honoring God as our Father.
