Pictures of The Tent Coming Down in Fayetteville, North Carolina

The wind was strong Saturday as we began to take down the tent. That was good and bad. The wind was good because it helped assure that the tent was completely dry before we took it down and packed it away for the winter. The wind was bad because it makes getting the tent on the ground kind of difficult.

Although the wind cooperated somewhat while taking the tent down, folding the tarps was another story. That was hilarious to watch. I thought for a moment that 4-5 people were going to be swept away and land at Kitty Hawk or in the Atlantic Ocean. Since Kelly Jo was one of those people, that would have been tragic!

They did finally get it all down and folded but it was fun while it lasted. We appreciate the folks from Wesleyan Pentecostal Church and a few of the homeless guys that helped us get the tent down. They worked great together and did exactly as they were instructed to do. That makes the whole project much easier.

It has been a super great year under the tent but it did feel good to get it down for the last time this year. Tomorrow we plan to begin transferring all the tent, chairs and other tent stuff from Bro. Jimmie's trailer into our tent trailer. That should be a pretty good task.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the pictures.


Here is the crew.

We missed Frank in the picture above so here he is below. Frank was a big help all week.

There blows the wind!

The tarp folders are about to blow away!

Here it is all safe and secure.

Revival In Pictures - City Reach Fayetteville

Today we have a bunch of pictures from City Reach Fayetteville. 

I hope you enjoy the Revival In Pictures. We enjoyed every night. The ministries we worked with in Fayetteville, actively work with the homeless population in the area. They provide food, friendship, supplies and the Gospel nearly every day in some place and in some way in the city of Fayetteville.

They have an amazing heart for these folks and City Reach Fayetteville was mostly an outreach to the precious people these churches serve every day. It was our pleasure to come along beside of them and help present the Gospel to folks that need to hear the message so desperately.

Many that came under the tent each night responded in the altar and Pastor Hayden told me that several were praying and crying in the altar that had never responded in any of their services. Praise God for that! The Gospel message works.

There are many ministries and churches that are focusing on everything but the Gospel to reach people. In their opinion, the Gospel is outdated and the Gospel message is not as effective as their "brand new" method. But ...I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." Romans 1:16

The Gospel works and City Reach Fayetteville demonstrated that to me all over again. Thank you, Lord!

Thank you very much for praying for this meeting and thank you for reading.


This is the bright sunshine that was beaming down during the hours that were forecast to be raining on Friday.

We had virtually no rain but the wind shifted and began to blow from the northwest. Friday night's service was chilly but my piano player was ready.

Friday we packed away the chairs and prepared some for taking down the tent the next day.

After the tent was down and packed, I pulled Bro. Jimmie's truck and trailer to the church.
