SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (BNc)Search TV speaker Phil Sanders met a recent convert last Tuesday, Aug. 26, at the annual Polishing the Pulpit event.

“I was blessed last Tuesday to meet Paul Sipiczsky, a 77-year-old refugee who moved here from Hungary in the 1950s. He had gone through many trials and was searching for the truth and the true church,” Phil said.

Paul found the SEARCH program on the Knoxville, Tenn., station, WATE (channel 6), an ABC affiliate, where the program is broadcast Sundays at 7:30 am.

John Daniels, the preacher at Sevierville, had announced to the congregation about Paul’s baptism a few weeks ago and attributed his visiting the Sevierville congregation to SEARCH.

“This is why we love partnering with local churches and why we always point back to the local church. I was blessed to meet Paul, when John brought him Tuesday to Polishing the Pulpit. It is indeed the highlight of the week!” Phil said.
