FOM NEA is grateful to First Baptist Church of Newport, AR for hosting our Friday Night Meeting. We were greeted with outstanding hospitality and fed with top of the line barbeque and baby back ribs, along with the fixins. Bro. Sonny Simpson spoke to us from the Book of John when Jesus met Nathaniel.
Saturday morning fishermen were met with more hot weather. Later in the morning they were cooled off by thunder storms. Fishing was tough for all but productive for several teams.

They came in with five fish weighing 13.98lbs. 3rd place winners was the team of Mike Crump and Jeff Cooper with five fish weighing 10.60 lbs.
