Last evening, Laura and I attended a crusade at Harvest Christian Center. Laura sang in the choir during worship, prior to the sermon by evangelist David Woods. Rev. Woods is a world-famous evangelist from Portland, OR. His sermon was powerful and was followed by an altar call, at which several were delivered from bondage and others were healed of afflictions. This was the third evening of the crusade, which continues through Friday.
