snapped a picture. It was so cool to see. I hope they don't keep it up
there until I pay the bill. lol
The first picture is of the BoggsMobile in the service bay at
The second is the backside of my inside dually tire. It shows the
evidence of a seal leaking oil pretty badly.
The third pic is the brake drum. You can see the oil on that as well.
The forth is another bus on a lift. We were lifted up in the air
looking down on the tops of the buses this morning but I didn't think
to take a picture. It was pretty cool to have 45,000 lbs. Up in the air.
We left after church Monday night and drove to Springfield, TN which
is just North of Nashville. We were at Roberts Bros. Coach in November
having some air conditioners installed and this trip they were
correcting a few things.
While at Roberts Bros. one side of the bus didn't air up properly.
It was so cold Tuesday morning that any moisture in the lines probably
froze. So everybody I asked recommended having the air dryer serviced.
We were here for a 7am appointment at Prevost and while servicing
the air dryer they spotted the leaking oil seal. That is what they are
working on now. It may not be the best way to start our first trip of
2010 but it is better than a wheel bearing catching on fire while
going down the road.
God knows what He is doing so we trust His hand.
That brings you up to date. Oh, we added some more pictures to the
website. Have a look and let us know what you think. We enjoy the
This morning we were intending to go to our home church at Dryden
Rd. But the jeep would not start. That's the 1st time it's let me down
completely. Since we are parked at Dodds church we went there Sunday
morning. Pastor Rex Lloyd asked me to preach so I went after the lost.
We had a good service and Holy Ghost conviction was very strong. That
shows how much I know about where I'm supposed to be sometimes.
Dad helped me get the jeep running so we were able to keep our
commitment for Sunday night. We went to Victory Pentecostal in
Hamilton where Bro. Donald Pierce is the pastor. We had a great time
there even though the Pierce family is in Alabama for the Holiday with
We were able to see many friends in each service and we enjoyed
that very much. Bro. Berkley is one of them and he stood still long
enough to get a pic.
Tomorrow is going to be a busy day. The laundry from the trip
needs to be done, we need to work on a newsletter and the jeep needs
to go to the shop.
Kelly Jo and I had a craving for good Pizza so we slipped down to
Lebanon to LaRosa's. It was great and we had plenty left over for
We cleaned up and went to bed before 6 last night and I actually
stayed in bed until 8 this morning. It felt so good I'm planning on
doing it again tonight.
The Dryden Rd. Christmas Dinner is tonight but we're not going to
make it. We hate to miss the good food and fellowship but we're not
near recovered yet. We plan to be there tomorrow morning for church
and then we are supposed to be in Hamilton tomorrow night with Pastor
God bless all.
Dad & Mom picked us up and delivered us safely home and we sure
appreciate it. Also Dad looked after the bus while we were gone and
made sure it didn't freeze up. Mom stocked us with sandwich stuff so
we wouldn't have to make a run for the grocery. Thank you Ma & Pa.
We are glad to be home and thankful for the help of the Lord. God
bless and to all a good long night!
The flight from Lagos went well and we are now almost home.
It is 7:45 pm as I type this which is 1:45 pm eastern time on
Thursday the 10th. I have no idea when I will be able to post it.
We made it to Lagos in good time and are now sitting at our
departure gate. The plane is scheduled to leave at 10:30 pm and
arrive in Atlanta 13 hours later at 5:30 am. If all goes well we will
catch our connecting flight and be in Dayton, Ohio around 9.
Bro. Shobanke brought us to Lagos along with Pastor Amos, Pastor
Israel, Bro. Samuel, Emmanuel our driver and his brother that drove
the second car. It was very sad to see them go as we entered the
security area. These men are my brothers and I already miss them very
Thank you very much for praying for us on this short trip. Bro.
Shobanke told me today that he was very pleased with the results of
the meetings and I praise God for that.
Hope to see you soon but if something happens that we do not make
it home don't worry about us. We will be in God's hands and that is
the safest place I know.
Davy, Kelly & Odie
We had a great conference and a great final day. Bro. Shobanke told
me that in the process of organizing and conducting the conference he
had been introduced to other holiness fellowships he did not know
before. That is certainly a blessing. Praise God for those of like
I am thankful our family had a chance to be a part of it.
The conference was good again today. We had great response in both
sessions and the Lord really blessed.
You might assume that when you have a Minister's Conference that
is sponsored by Pentecostals you would only attract Pentecostal
preachers. Especially with the conference theme of Pentecost. But my
experience in 2007 taught me differently. I knew there would be
preachers and church workers from all types of churches. So I planned
When I finished the second session today I first called for those
that did not have the Baptism of The Holy Ghost but desired to be
filled. Twelve men and women responded and then the rest gathered
behind them. We then had a great move of the Holy Ghost.
I did not get to talk to any of them after church but I know they
were touched by the Lord.
One more Crusade service and one more service in the Minister's
Conference and soon we will be headed home. Please continue to pray
Tonight was the first night of the three night Gospel Crusade
behind Bro. Stephen Kuye's church, Landmark Christ Mission in Ibadan.
The crowd was very good and very responsive to the preaching. It is a
great place for the meeting because there are people all around and
many passing through the grounds.
It is our first time in Ibadan and we have been received with open
arms. May God bless these wonderful folks.
Please continue to pray that God will pour out his Spirit in the Crusade.
So many are bound but God is able to break the chains of sin.
Tomorrow we begin the Minister's Conference here in Ibadan. The
theme is Pentecost. Tomorrow's message is "The Fire That Falls". Pray
that it does fall on us.
Thanks for the emails and the comments.
