Bobby Thornhill, Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them alL" Acts 4:33 (NKJV) What a description of the evangelistic effort of the early church is given in this and the surrounding vers- es of Acts 4. They prayed; probably not our standard prayer of blessings upon our own lives; they were shaken as God made His presence known, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and spoke with bold- ness. This seems a far cry from our usual efforts at witnessing; riding around on a Sunday afmoon hop- ing (maybe) to catch some wayward church member at home so that we can im- press them with our own spirituality and piousness. We might even go so far as to ask them to come back to church if we are really fired up. This is not what Luke is referring to; he has cap- tured the essence of witness- ing with the revelation that it is accomplished with the power of the Holy Spirit as its source. It is not an event held occasionally; it is a way of life. Those whose witness is empowered by the Holy Spirit are given the grace; Luke says "great grace was upon them" because "great power was given them;" to be bold in their speaking about the resurrected Jesus. This power and grace also aided them to treat one another with love and compassion, and to live in unity of spir- it because they were filled with the Spirit. Dare we say that we are filled with God's Spirit while our churches ar- gue over carpet color or the order of worship, or who will hold what position? Friends, let us pray that God will once again shake our church houses so that the Church will regain the awareness of His presence that we have lost and so desperately need to regain.

Quirk Things have been busy here on the farm. Soybeans are being harvested despite the rain earlier this week Jackson Point Road is in better shape than it has been in a long while. Offdals in Adams County have been working hard trying to convince FEMA to help fired The Narrows project. FEMA denied the first proposal but has agreed to hear an appeal at the end of this month. Sena- tor Thad  and Con- gressman Gregg Harper have both written letters to FEMA in favor of FEMA fimding The Narrows disaster project. Hopefully, FEMA will support the funding. Mr. Ross McGee has to harvest his beans from across The Narrows crossing, and this is a project that is just too large for private individuals to handle without assistance from some form of government funding. Taxpayers can't af- ford to pay property taxes and continue to fund county mad reconsetion.

The Mississippi Secre- tary of State's Office con- tinues to receive numer- ous Complaints regarding a company called "Annual Business Services," which is soliciting businesses across the state. In another mass mall out to businesses statewide, Annual Business Services requests businesses to pro- vide sensitive information and a check for $125.00, in what appears as an official correspondence. In return, the company would prepare an "Annual Minutes Re- quirement Statement." There is no "Annual Min- utes Requirement State- ment" form required by the Mississippi Secretary of State's Office. The Secretary of State's Office encourages Missis- sippi corporations to utilize extreme caution in the dis- closure of sensitive infor- mation. This Agency does are spent got us in this mess, not the oil companies. It doesn't matter how much money is gained from the off industry, if it is poorly managed, we will suffer the same fats. Folks, we have to stay on top of what is happening in our county... make sure monies are being utilized properly. Fall always brings huntsrs and fishermen back to The Far Comer. We look forward to see- ing our old friends, and regret that many may not return due to mad conditions. Deer and wild hogs are plentiful here, so use caution when traveling, especially at dusk dark. Trucks and trailers parked at Buffalo Landing have once again be- come a familiar sight, and fish- ermen are reporting that the white porch are biting. Last wintsr was extremely harsh in The Far Comer, and I am aiaid this winter ll be as well. If the Mississippi rises as she usually does, we wiJl be boating to Lake Mary Read. My main concern is that as of yet no improvements have been made to Lake Mary Read. Lake Mary Read will continue to washout because the culverts haven't been in- stalled. Percy Creek will con- tinue to flood the road because it hasn't, been dredged. Fort Adams will continue to flood because drainage ditches are still home to 10 and 20 i. trees. However, we have made progress on Jackson Point Road, and I would like to thank everyone who contrib- uted to improving the road. There is still much to be done, and old man winter is just around the cemer. This re- ally bothers me because there is only a short time span for any construction projects to be completed. I don't think folks realize that Mother Nature is still in charge in the Far Cor- The schemers send out bogus ch:ks to "hired" indi- viduals with instruons to use the money to shop local busi- nesses. One assignment asks that shoppers test any Money Gram locatien by using a por- tion of the  to wire cash ts a third party. By the time the consmnews realize the check is fake, their money is gone. This scheme has been around for years but is now employing a new twist by using names of real legitimate companies when contacting individuals to '_ire" A consumer  Kentucky was offered a secret shopping "job" via mail by a company lo- catsd in Natchez called Jordan I_ogislics Insight Mystery Shop- ping, Inc. The consumer was sent a check for $2,992.54 and was asked to shop any Money Gram location. The consumer was to keep $340 f them- selves, transfer $2,552.54 to someone in the Philippines and use $100 for shoplng expenses. BBB offers the follow- ing tips for persons contacted about mystery shopping jobs: Ignore claims that you will make big profits easily. Avoid falling for claims that "guarantee" a position, without traitS. Be cautious of unsolicited mailings, e-mails or advertise- ments offering "work- from- home" jobs. Be on the lookout for busi- nesses that send checks and ask that you use money from the checks to pay for your shopping assignments. Bogus checks olden look real. Never pay money in ad- vance. A .legitimate mystery shopping service will not charge money for materials, training or recruiting. Never give them your credit card or bank account numbers. Never wire money to busi- nesses you know little or noth- ing about. Wiring money is the same as sending cash. Once the money is gone, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to er. One resource for determin- ing whether a mystery shop- ping job is legitimate is the Mystery Shopping Providers Association (MSPA) at www.
