Playing Time



This recording begins with singing and introductions of various church members. Dell talks about the new church and the significance of what a house is. He talks about what the church means, and how church members should conduct themselves and spend time with God. He laments on crime and how the church is losing membership throughout the world, leading into a call and response. Audio jumps to a man talking about Elijah and a message of hope, and sometimes that hope starts small but one shouldn’t get discouraged. This is followed by and enthusiastic audience shouting and music.
