:: Recording Notes ::
0 - Bessie (on "Go On, I Will Go With You."): The disciples and Noah didn't want to go, but the Spirit will go with them. The Bible will tell you what to say. In Bessie Jones' church there is no preacher, she lets the Lord guide her in teaching and song. She does not prepare lessons, rather she is guided by the Lord's voice. She waits for the Lord to bring to her the message or the song to sing to the congregation. "I know that's the best way because I feel good about it."
