I'm posting this picture in black and white, because this Old Country Church stands atop a hill surrounded by mountains in the Southern end of Whitley County, much like it did decades ago.
Ryan's Creek Baptist Church was established in 1884; most of the families in the area back then, have passed on, and their children have moved away, leaving about twenty or so faithful members to carry on.
Though the crowd is small, The Holy Ghost still flows from breast to breast, 'The Word' is still preached, and the songs of Zion, sung.
The Pastor of many years, Herb Wells, has asked my husband to preach tomorrow's sermon. It is always an honor for him to preach, wherever he is asked. We feel Blessed to live in an area that still has churches, that really know the Lord.
