View Out The Front Window September 25, 2016

I want to spice this Sunday post up a bit so I am dedicating it to my favorite sister, Theresa Osborn. She said my Sunday posts are too short so she does not like them as much as the rest of the week. 

How do you like me and my Sunday posts now, my sweet Sis?

Check out our posts from the last week at the links below. 

This is our view today out the front window at our friend's place, East Tennessee Luxury Coach in Vonore, Tennessee.

This is our view out the front door. The coach next to us is a beautiful Vouge. The conversion was done in Oklahoma. We have several friends that worked at that plant when it was open and probably worked on this conversion.

We plan to be in service this morning with our dear friends at Beechfork Holiness Church near Wartburg, Tennessee. We can hardly way to see them all.

I hope you have a good Sunday. Thanks for reading.

Godfrey and Bessie Isaacs - Holiness Heroes

Note From Davy: I added a two pictures to yesterday's post.

Odie's Saturday Post

Hello, Friends this is Odie reporting in on Saturday. Later this morning I will climb into the BoggsMobile and we will start making our way south. Our time at home has come to a close this time around. I sure do appreciate my grandparents for taking such good care of me while we have been close to home. It has been wonderful. I must admit that it is good to be rolling again. 

I want to say thank you to all of you who left comments or let me know my post last Saturday encouraged you. I love hearing feedback from blog readers!

I have written posts in the past about different Holiness Heroes that have impacted my life for the good. I am very thankful to have been exposed to so many good people in my life. 

Today I am writing about two very special people that left a Godly legacy for me even though I was born too late to know either of them personally very well. I never got to know Godfrey and Bessie Isaacs but their lives have influenced me greatly.


The were my Great Grandparents, the parents of my grandma Martha Boggs. Sadly Grandpa Godfrey passed away the summer before I was born. I wish I could have known Grandpa! I love to hear my family tell stories about him.

Grandma Bessie was Holy Ghost filled saint. I did get to meet her and I have two vague memories of Grandma. Here she is holding me when I was a small baby.

She passed away when I was two years old. She was a very precious woman. I wish I could have known her better. 

They lived in the mountains of Kentucky and raised their family. Life was not easy for them. They raised their own food and worked hard for everything they had but they held on to God and served him faithfully to the end. The log cabin where they lived is still standing in Jackson County Kentucky. 


Seventeen children was born into the family. Fourteen children lived to be grown and have children of their own. Those fourteen children produced 98 grandchildren and my generation of great grandchildren is still growing. 

We were left with a wonderful heritage. I wish I could have heard them pray. Some of my favorite stories Dad tells are of prayer meetings at Grandma and Grandpa"s. I am proud to be a member of their family. I am looking forward to the day I get to see them in Heaven. 

I enjoy looking at pictures and seeing videos clips of my Great Grandparents testifying and singing. I remember listening to Grandma Bessie sing on a cassette when I was a little girl. 

While researching for this post I found a blog post about Godfrey and Bessie Isaacs from 2009 written by Sonya Isaacs. I think you will enjoy reading it.

Have a fantastic weekend.

GoodNews In Abeokuta, Nigeria

Update with two pictures 9/24/2016 12:01 AM

I only have a moment to write just now so I today's post will be brief. Bro. Shobanke called this week with super great news. The new classrooms for the GoodNews Christian School in Abeokuta are nearing completion. The school had 160 students at the end of the school year and they were expecting more growth. They were completely out of room.

Bro. Shobanke told me in May of their need to build more classrooms and we immediately jumped on board. The school is very near and dear to our hearts and God is using it to touch many young lives And their parents. We, along with others, sent money to get started and the project has snow balled since then. Bro. Shobanke was praising God for the progress and we are as well.

They are lacking some funds to finish. I am not sure of the exact amount but we would like to help supply it. When we go to Nigeria we are taking funds for other commitments we have made to the school and in other areas and we always take extra to put in the right places as the Lord opens doors. In addition to that, we would love to take whatever is needed to finish the school when we go in November.

We also plan to take at least one suitcase and possibly two, loaded with school supplies that can not be purchased easily there. If you would like to help with these projects, please let us know. Whatever you designate for the classrooms or school supplies will be used 100% in those areas. 

I hope you all have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by and reading.

Revival In Pictures - Dodds Pentecostal Church

We closed revival Wednesday night after five great services with Pastor Kelly Rogers and the Dodds church. We appreciate the fine hospitality and the kindness of the folks and we especially appreciate God moving in the services. It has been a wonderful week!

Odie snapped several pictures the last three nights and I think she had some help from my sister Theresa as well. I hope you enjoy the Revival In Pictures.

Thank you for stopping in.
