Sunday’s weather was good and so our service led by Mr David Smith was held out doors in the picnic area. David read from John ch. 4 v 43-54 of how Jesus healed the official’s son.  Jesus told the official 'Go your son will live'. The Official took Jesus at His word, he trusted Jesus and his faith was rewarded - his son lived. David stressed the importance of taking God at His word with many examples from the Bible. By the Holy Spirit understanding of the word of God is revealed which we must then trust by faith.
