CLA campaign in West Memphis successful
HOT SPRINGS, Ark.--A campaign in West Memphis, Ark., Jan. 23 by the Christian Leadership Academy, based here, was rated the latest success in a series of campaigns conducted by CLA founder Alfred Harrell and friends.
"We had a small turnout, but quite a few were there from different Church of God organizations," Dr. Harrell said.
He said the CLA had limited funds available to spend in West Memphis, so it placed little advertising. However, many fliers with "good information" were distributed, and "we feel the gospel was preached in West Memphis."
The next CLA campaign is set for Feb. 20 in Paducah, Ky.
"The CLA is dedicated to being a part of preaching the gospel to the entire world for a witness," said Dr. Harrell. "The method will be a direct approach of sending individuals personally into cities with a strong message. This was the method used by converts in the New Testament."
