Again: On a Wednesday Night in 1932
I attended a Wednesday night prayer meeting at Humphries School in Crockett County with some of my classmates. I realized I was lost and I went to the mourner's bench. I tried to pray and finally my burden was gone and everything looked different. I no longer felt like praying for myself, but I remember wanting to pray for a girl I was seeing. My family didn't go to church, so I didn't go either. I was twenty-two before I joined Mt. Nebo Baptist Church in Buena Vista, Tennessee, and was baptized. I entered the military service and fought in World War II in South Africa. We had to sleep on the ground and I got pneumonia and was discharged. The influence of the military and the war caused me to stray from the Lord. When I returned home, I lived near Westport Baptist Church and felt that I needed to return to the Lord. Being under a heavy conviction because of the life I had led, I asked Westport Church to forgive me. Since that time, I have tried to serve the Lord to the best of my ability. I met Evie Ellis Hall at Westport and we were married. We have been together in God's service ever since.

Born Again: July of 1930
I was saved during a revival at Mount Comfort Baptist Church during the fourth week in July of 1930. Brother Joe Joyner was the pastor. The first day of the revival Brother Joyner came to me and asked me if I was lost and wanted to go to the altar for prayer. I went then and continued to go up at every service. I prayed and tried to trust the Lord the best I knew how. Then on Thursday of that week I was saved. I joined the church and was baptized at the end of the revival. I remained a member of Mount Comfort Baptist Church for thirty years before I moved my membership to Huntingdon Missionary Baptist Church..
"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still
waters. He restoreth my soul;
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake."
Max was a Deacon of Huntingdon M. B. Church and he and his wife Evie
