HUMBOLDT — Saturday’s weather conditions weren’t lost on Pastor Robert Favors, of Poplar Grove Baptist Church.

“God knew what the weather was going to do before we did,” he told a large Biblesta crowd Saturday.

For hours that morning, it looked as if the threat of rain would dampen the enthusiasm. Sure enough, by late morning, a line of rain clouds gathered along the southern horizon.
