Trip to Ashoboro N.C. Ward Street Baptist Church 1942- 1945 to Fayetteville Street Baptist Church

February 07 2016 Charity and Myself (Charles Whisnant) drove to Ashoboro N.C. to visit the church that my father Everette Whisnant was the first pastor of the church in 1942.  It was my understanding by a member of the orginial church that Dad had held Tent Meetings and from that group a church was called into extending. 

This lady Mom and Dad was in the church at Ward Street Baptist Church back in 1942 and she said she remembered her Mom speaking of Everette.  When we told her our name, she said she remembered her Mom saying a lot about "Everette Whisnant."   
There were several others there. After the services another had said she had a photo of her setting on the pew at Ward Street Baptist Church.

The Pastor, Bruce was so friends and was so good to us that Sunday.
