John 12:44-50 (King James Version) Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

PRCARC HamFest Set For December 13
POPLARVILLE – The PRCARC HamFest has been moved back one week to December 13. The date was changed to accommodate vendors who reported that another fest was already set for December 6.
The fest will be at the same location as last year - at the Pearl River County Fairgrounds on Highway 26, just to the west of Poplarville. The main display building will again house the fest, with vendors set up in the animal ring next door.
PRCARC Vice President Larry Wagoner reported that the date problem occurred because when the fest was originally set for December 6, club officials did not realize that they had shifted the date from the second weekend of the month to the first. The problem remained hidden until vendors started reporting that they needed to go to the larger fest in Tampa, Florida on the first weekend of the month.
Several new door prizes will be available this year, as well as grand prizes that are sure to appeal to all ham radio operators.
Also, the drawing for the deep sea fishing trip that has been being raffled off will be held at the fest. The trip is with Captain Scott Simpson on board charter vessel Impulsive - which sails from the port of Long Beach. Captain Simpson is regarded as one of the finest charter captains on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Have a great month
