At the close of the Sunday morning service on Aug. 5, Pastor Jeff Holub of  Fellowship Baptist Church, Des Moines, Iowa, announced that it was his 50th spiritual birthday. Though he had not planned it, he considered it a special treat to have Chris Hindal speaking, as he considers Chris and Deb as spiritual mentors for him and Becky during their years at Faith Baptist Bible College.

Chris presented Gospel Literature Services during the Sunday School hour to a group of adults and teenagers. He preached during the morning service and presented the International Partnership in the evening service. Since Chris was raised in the Des Moines area, it was a blessing to see friends from the past. Praise God for a loving pastor who faithfully leads this congregation.
