Bro. Dexter Worrell

Bro. Dexter Worrell is our friend and encourager. What an
encourager he is! When we are near home Bro. Dexter is always there
cheering us on with a kind word and usually an offering for Odie.

The last few years he has called me on the phone periodically and
each phone call is a great boost to our morale and spirit. Bro.
Dexter is a praying man and often gives me a helpful word the Lord
gave him in prayer that day. He sometimes tells me of a revival he was
involved in and how many folks were saved or one of the many trials
the Lord has helped him through.

Bro. Dexter is one of many encouragers and friends that God has
placed in our lives. There is no telling how many difficulties we have
overcome, how many dangers we have been spared and how many souls we
have ministered to because of the prayers and kindness of men like
Bro. Dexter Worrell.

I am thinking about Bro. Dexter today because he called this
morning. He asked about revivals, souls being saved, how much I have
been praying, if Kelly Jo was still pretty, about Odie's health and
whether she has found a husband yet. He usually covers these questions
in every phone call. But today he brought up another subject.

He told me his birthday was just around the corner. It is a
special birthday. Special because he will be 85 and because he has
recently cheated death once again. In fact he is not completely well
yet. He told me he would like to receive 85 birthday cards. I would
like to help him reach that goal. We might get him 850!

If you know Bro. Dexter send him a card this week or next. If you
don't know him it wouldn't hurt to send one any way. Kind deeds
motivated by love have a way of coming back around. Wouldn't it be
great to overwhelm him with love on his 85th birthday?

Thank God for friends!

We have had three nights of revival at Harmony Holiness in
Tuscaloosa and it has been very good. This is our first visit and we are glad to be here. Odie will have more pictures and an update later in the week.

Great Music at White Plains!

We arrived at White Plains church near Conehatta, MS to find they
had completely remodled the sanctuary, foyer and bathrooms. It is

The music and services were beautiful as well. The young folks
have an ensamble orchestra that is awesome. Sis. Tanya Boler plays
piano and works them hard and it is obvious the practice is paying
off. Bro. Ricky (Sis. Tanya's husband) plays along on the tenor sax
and does a great job as well.

Although we were only there for two services we sure enjoyed our
short time there. All the folks there are so very kind to us each time
we see them. We love going.

We packed up quick after church Sunday morning and made a FAST
trip to Tuscaloosa, Alabama. We had a good start last night and we are
looking for a great revival this week.

Hope all is well in your world.

Pictures of tires?

I can hear you now. "Must not be much going on in the life of the
Boggs family if they are posting pictures of tires!" But I want the
world to know these aren't just any tires. These are brand spanking
new tires on the front of the BoggsMobile! Tires that were purchased
and mounted as a gift to our ministry and what a gift it is! The
lowest estimate I had received for the two tires we needed was $1740 +

I knew the front tires would need to be replaced soon but I was
hoping to make them last another year. The tread still looked great
but the side walls had stress cracks from age. The cracks had become
noticably worse the last two weeks so we began to make plans to
replace them.

That is when a family that wishes to remain anonymous stepped in
and made the arrangements for us. I didn't even have to move the bus.
The tire dealer came out to the church and put them on in the parking

We are praising God for His timely provision and we are asking God
to bless the family that allowed God to use them. Would you help us do

Thanks for your prayers for our family. We closed a great revival
in Ellisville last night and we start tomorrow night in Tuscaloosa,
Alabama. We are preaching & singing tonight & tomorrow morning at a
church near Conehatta, Mississippi.

God bless,

It continues to be a great week here in Ellisville, Mississippi. It has warmed up and has been beautiful. Rain is in the forecast for today.
Its hard to believe Thursday is already here. Only two more nights of revival. Each service has been different, but all have been good. It is just proof that God is in control. He knows what needs to happen.
I need to go for now. The day is ahead of me. Who but God knows what is going to happen? I am anxious to find out. Have a wonderful day!!

My Health Care Plan

Wow! When you bring up the topic of President Obama's Health Care Plan you find out pretty quickly where people stand. It is an emotional, hot button topic. Folks either love it or they hate it. I admit, I have very strong feelings about it myself.

I hate to see the government MORE involved in almost anything. I hate to see private industry MORE controlled in almost any situation. I hate to see people deceived into believing that millions more folks will be receiving MORE benefits and it is going to cost billions of dollars LESS. Insurance companies cannot cover every person and every condition and still make a profit and continue in the insurance business. That will leave the government as the only insurer which is probably the whole point any way! The whole mess drives us further down the road toward socialism and the government monitoring or controlling more and more of our personal lives.

I could go on an on about my thoughts, arguments and feelings but that's not my direction for today. I wanted to tell you about my health care plan. Bro. Jerod Burris, a dear pastor friend in California came up with this on Monday while mulling all of this over in his mind. With his permission, I have adopted it as my own. Bro. Jarod's statement is point 2 & 3 below.

Here it is. I'm not going to fret over the government takeover of the health care system. They do not control my health care. They will not affect my health care plan. They cannot fix or destroy my health care plan. It is beyond their control!
1. My Health Care Plan is not and cannot be administered or hijacked by the Government.
2. "My Health Care Plan has ALWAYS accepted pre-existing conditions and...
3. The premium has already been paid!"
Update From Bro. Jarod Burris Wednesday 3/24 11:15 pm
4. My Health Plan gives 24/7 access from anywhere in the world.
5. No deductible or out of pocket expenses.
6. No waiting forever in the waiting area. The Doctor CAN see you right now.
7. My doctor has never had a malpractice case.

Psalm 103:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

I Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

We are living in uncertain times, friends, but we are going to be victorious! Our faith is not in our President. Our faith is not in our government. Our faith is not in a particular system or ideology. Our Faith is in Christ our Lord! "On Christ the solid rock I stand. All other ground is sinking sand. All other ground is sinking sand." (My Hope is Built)

Praise God! May God bless and keep you in His peace!

A Mississippi Monday

Monday was another great day in Ellisville, Mississippi. We had a good visit with Pastor Kenny and Sis. Joan Morris at lunch. Emma Grace came along with Grandmama and Granddaddy. We have lot of fun watching her enjoy her food. She also loves for me to take pictures of her with her food. As soon as we started eating she said "after I eat this I can have ice cream." She had a cone first, but then had to have some in a bowl with chocolate sauce like Bro. Davy. Dad got cold so he put on his vest and zipped it. Emma Grace put her jacket on and zipped it too. It was so funny.

Today was also laundry day. The Laundry Mat is conveniently next to the church. This is one place that I can drive to the laundry mat! Don't worry it's not the Jeep just my power chair. The "Washateria" is old but very clean. The inside had been updated some since last time. It is so nice to go somewhere that is well cared for!

It has been a while since our main picture page has been updated. Dad added 12 new sets of pictures yesterday. Don't forget we love your comments. You can leave comments on the Blog or send us an email through the website.

To top off the day we had a wonderful time at church. God was there from the opening song. We are so privileged to serve an AWESOME God! Thank you Lord for bringing us a mighty long way! We would of never made it without you. I am so glad you are always with us!
Ready for a terrific Tuesday.

According to the calendar we are supposed to be having warm weather. Saturday was a beautiful day. Sunday was cold and rainy. At least we weren't shoveling snow like some of our friends. It did flurry a bit today.
Hurry spring please, we are anxiously waiting for you!
The weather did not dampen the start to revival Sunday at First Assembly. In the morning a young lady got saved. The evening service ended with a great response in the altars.
It is such a pleasure to be back with the wonderful folks in Ellisville, Mississippi. I believe this is our fourth revival here. We always have a great time with Pastor Kenny and Sis. Joan Morris. They are such sweet people. Bro. Kenny calls me "Odie Lee". Another of many nicknames. LOL
They served us delicious food in the Fellowship Hall. I have to share a pic of the AWESOME cake. Its "Death By Chocolate". It is definitely to die for! Thanks Sis. Stephanie for making it.
Also Emma Grace was enjoying her chicken. This was one of the pieces she enjoyed. She is so cute. You will probably hear a lot about Emma Grace. She is one of my buddies.
Well Goodnight all.

The Brimms in Pine Prairie

Our great friends from Granite City, Illinois Bro. George & Sis.
Arline Brimm came by Pine Prairie on their way home from Allentown.
They parked next to us Wednesday night and it was great to have them.
It would have been better to keep them a few days but we will take
what we can get. They are really super people.

The third picture is of some of the children singing "Fix it man"
tonight at church. They did a tremendous job on a great old song.

Hope all is well for everybody.

I will try to get some food pictures up later.

God Made It!

It is amazing what God hath wrought! These pictures were taken by
an orbiting sattelite and they give a beautiful glimpse of the blue
marble we live on. The first one has North America at the center and
the second has India at the center. This earth and all of God's
creation testify of the greatness of our God!

Let me know what you think.

On The Road Again

Sis. Arline Brimm liked the way Mom looked behind wheel of the BoggsMobile. She decided to get in the driver seat for a picture. Bro. George and Sis. Arline Brimm are our dear friends. We always look forward to being with them. Wednesday we made our yearly Allentown visit to Dairy Queen with them. They are a lot of fun to be with. Bro. George is the ice cream king.
We are rolling down the road toward Pine Prairie, Louisiana. This will be my last Blog for a while. Verizon signal does not exist in Pine Prairie. Please say a prayer for me. LOL So understand why I don't respond this week to calls, text, or emails.
One last thing, don't forget to set your clocks FORWARD 1 hour tonight. It is time to spring forward.

Well I am going to try this again. I had it all typed last night and it would not send. Yesterday Mom and I had to go to the laundry mat. So I Don't have a full review of the morning service.

Pray for Christians in Nigeria

   News out of Nigeria the last few days is not good. It seems over 500 Christians, mostly women and children were killed by Muslim gangs over the weekend. The killing took place in the villages around Jos which is toward the northern part of Nigeria. 

   Please pray for the people of Nigeria. Bro. Shobanke and the folks we have visited in Nigeria are more toward the south but there are many Christians and missionaries in that area who's lives are in danger. In addition violence like this can reach a flashpoint and spread quickly. They need God to help.  

   I have posted the link and the story below. The details are a bit graphic so please consider that before reading. 


Dozens of bodies lined the dusty streets of three Christian villages in northern Nigeria yesterday. Other victims of Sunday morning's Muslim rampage were jammed into a local morgue, the limbs of slaughtered children tangled in a grotesque mess.

One toddler appeared fixed in the protective but hopeless embrace of an older child, possibly his brother. Another had been scalped. Most had severed hands and feet.

Officials estimate that 500 people were massacred in night-time raids by Muslim gangs near Jos, the city that bestrides Nigeria's Christian-Muslim fault line.

Local journalists and civil rights organisations who toured the area yesterday told The Timesthey had counted at least 200 victims shot and hacked to death in apparent revenge for sectarian violence in January that claimed about 300 lives from the two communities. Mark Lipdo, a co-ordinator for the Stefanos Foundation, a Christian aid group, confirmed at least 93 dead in one village. "But there are corpses charred beyond recognition," he said.

Survivors claimed that Muslim inhabitants of the targeted villages of Zot, Dogo Nahawa and Rastat had received telephone calls two days before the attack telling them to leave the area.

Witnesses said gangs waited at main entry points to the villages while others went from house to house, setting the homes on fire.

Those who fled were killed at the exit points. Others were slaughtered after being caught in animal traps and nets as they ran in the dark.

Ben Kwashi, Anglican Archbishop of Jos, said he visited one of three villages engulfed by the violence. "I could see kids from age zero to teenagers, all butchered from the back, macheted in their necks, their heads. Deep cuts in the mouths of babies. The stench. People wailing and crying," he said.

Nigeria's Acting President Goodluck Jonathan, a southerner, ordered troops into the riot-affected area "to confront and defeat these roving bands of killers", he said in a statement. Last night he sacked Sarki Mukhtar, the national security adviser, a powerful figure in the inner circle of the ailing President, Umaru Yar'Adua.

Villagers said army assistance came too late. Christian youths accused the military of complicity in the killings.

Survivors told The Times that entire families were killed, some to the chants of Allahu Akbar — God is Greatest. They said villagers awoke to shouting and gunfire at about 3am on Sunday.

"They then set homes on fire and attacked men, women and children. Many were decapitated," said Theresa Malinowska, press officer for Christian Solidarity Worldwide. Staff counted the bodies of four babies and 28 children under 5 in one location alone.

Jos is the regional capital of Plateau State, where Christians from Nigeria's south and Muslims from the north compete over the fertile farmland. The area has often been a flashpoint. In rioting in September 2001 1,000 people died and Muslim-Christian battles killed up to 700 people in 2004.

Jos has been under a dusk-until-dawn curfew since January's violence. Archbishop Kwashi said he believed a significant organisation was behind the killings because they happened during curfew, with the army in the area.

"I think it is all Christians killed. The Muslims, I heard, had left the village. The kind of co-operation that came into play — that could violate a curfew, that could take the law into their own hand. I worry which village, which town, will be next," he said.

The Boiling Pot

One of our favorite places to eat in Mobile, AL is the Boiling
Pot. After we made the short drive from the Millry area and finished
setting up, that is where we headed. We saw all the Grove family as
soon as we walked in. The funny thing is that this makes the 2nd or
3rd time we have run into them at The Boiling Pot the last few years.
We had a good laugh over that.

But the real reason we we come is the great food. We love the
shrimp Poboys and they pile on the shrimp! Kelly Jo tried the steamed
shrimp this time and it was good too.

Wish you all were here to enjoy!

Family & Friends Day

1. Pastor Ronald Hobby
2. Davy & Bro. Bill Addis
Today is Family & Friends Day at Sand Ridge Church near Millry,
Alabama. We are thrilled to be here and be a part of it. Pastor
Ronald Hobby was so kind to invite us and his folks embraced us
warmly. It was great to see so many friends from years gone by and to
meet folks from the community.

Bro. Addis is a great soldier of the cross that blazed the trail
for us evangelists for over 40 years. It was so good to be in service
with him today.

Deer Gravy & Gumbo!

Food in Richton, MS.

Wow! We have been eating good in Richton, MS. Sis. Kim Morris is one of Kelly Jo's favorite cooks and she sure can lay out a meal. Several ladies from the church chipped in all week and the result has been tremendous. The Deer gravy picture is from a few nights ago and it was wonderful. One of the sisters in the church made that. The Shrimp and Sausage Gumbo Picture is from tonight (Friday) and it was sooooooo good! You did great on that one Sis. Kim! Wish you all were here to enjoy the good food with us.

God bless. Davy

Richton, MS

     We have had three services at Richton so far this year and all three have been powerful.  Sunday morning and Sunday Night the response at the altar was tremendous.  Last night (Monday) the power went out just after folks had responded to the altar call and stayed out until after church was over.  We still had a great altar call with the Lord meeting folks right on time.  After church a young lady told the Pastor she had asked Christ into her heart and that she was now saved.  She said she couldn't wait to get to school and tell all her friends.  Praise God for that!  We are looking forward to some more great services this week.  We will try to get some pictures of the folks and food up tonight or tomorrow.

     We made the trip from Purcell, OK Friday night and Saturday with no problems.  It was about 700 miles.  Saturday night was a different story though.  I went to bed early and woke up about 20 minutes later with the worse pain I've ever had.  It was in my lower left side and kept me rolling, praying and screaming for nearly 7 hours.  Long story short the Lord helped and I was able to rest some and preach both services Sunday.  Kelly Jo and Odie contacted several folks during the night and I sure appreciate their prayers.  The predominant opinion seems to be that I probably had a kidney stone.  Now this comes from all of us folks that received our medical license from a box of Corn Flakes so only God really knows.  But whatever it was, if I never get another one it will be too soon for me!  I do seriously praise God for His help.  I know He was near us all night long.

     Thanks for keeping us in your prayers.
