GARYSTOWN, TX - In what is being called a modern miracle and a sure sign of God's blessing upon His people, Harvest Baptist Church started its Wednesday Bible study at the time clearly listed on its sign, website, and other promotional materials, sources confirmed.
Witnesses recalled rolling into the parking lot at the usual time, ten minutes after the 6:30 p.m. start of the study, and being bewildered when they walked in just after the end of the opening prayer, which the group leader had apparently executed although he was alone.
"It's divine intervention, no question in my mind," church member Yolanda Gutierrez told reporters after the study. "Without the mighty power of Jehovah God, there is no way we'd ever be able to pull this off."
At publishing time, church leaders had declared the start of a new season of God's blessing after learning that the Bible study had miraculously ended promptly at 8:00 p.m.
