Such sweet members of Bro and Sis Bryant when they preached for us at Ratliff City. One evening we Bro Bryant had to stop his sermon short. One of his kids got tickled then Sis Bryant got tickled then the whole congregation was laughing out of control. Bro Bryant finally gave up because the audience was out of control laughing. Bro Bryant was a great man. He’s now in God’s arms.
