We heard then that God had also given Bro. Paul and Sis. Tracy Sheffield a miracle baby in Ellisville, Mississippi. Now I have seen him with my eyes and held the miracle in my hands. He is a beautiful baby. You can see Caleb for yourself along with his mom and dad.
I remember clearly the night last year that Bro. Paul grabbed hold of faith for a child and would not let go. It was March 26, 2010 on the last night of revival in Ellisville, Mississippi.
God had challenged his heart to demonstrate his faith in God. Bro. Paul was the first one in the altar that night and one of the last ones to leave. Bro. Paul and Sis. Tracy wanted a baby so bad but every avenue was a dead end.
Bro. Paul demonstrated his faith in God by going home and preparing a nursery for their baby. They finally decided to paint their nursery blue. With the nursery painted they settled in to wait on God.
In September they received a call from another county about a newborn in need of a home. Two days later they brought Caleb home from the hospital and placed him in the nursery they had painted by faith. Caleb was seven days old and they have had him ever since.
Isn't that awesome? They had faith in God for a miracle. They demonstrated their faith by preparing a nursery for their baby and God honored their faith with a miracle.
Here's an interesting side note. I don't know if you can tell from the pictures but little Caleb is a spitting image of Bro. Paul. Isn't that cool?
Bro. Paul and Sis. Tracy are only a step or two from having permanent custody of little Caleb. We are praying and believing that the rest of the process will be smooth and timely.
Praise God for working miracles in the lives of those that trust him. If you have a great need in your life today dare to believe God for a miracle! Our God is able to do it if you put your trust in Him. Trust God to do what is best in your life. You may not understand Him or comprehend what He is doing but Trust Him!

Here are a few pictures of the folks in Dothan, Alabama. We had several visitors at Mt. Sinai last night so of course we all went out to eat after church. We love this work for God and all of the folks involved. We are asking God to cover us up with His presence this week in revival. Please pray that God will move among us and save many souls.

Some left over hail!
We made the trip over from Ellisville, Mississippi to Dothan, Alabama on Saturday. It was a good day to travel and everything went very smooth. It was the first time to pull the trailer with the jeep in it since we had the hitched on the BoggsMobile fixed and all went well. We are very thankful for that.
We started revival this morning at Mt. Sinai and they had a church dinner afterward. It was all good but the excitement started in the afternoon. As we finished eating is was plain to see that a storm was on the way. When it arrived it came on strong!
We hadn't been back in the bus long when the rain, hail and wind whipped up into a fury. It came down on the windows and roof with a vengeance. It was just a little scary. One of the neighbors said he saw a tornado but that hasn't been confirmed.
We are all fine but when we went outside afterward we could see how blessed we are. The power lines were down, some trees broken, the church air conditioner was moved and things not nailed down were blown around or away.
Some of the church folks were still in the fellowship hall when it started and they opened the door to go after some children they had already loaded in their vehicle. The storm ripped the door off the hinges. Bro. Watson, the pastor, lost the chimney off his house and also lost a set of steps.
It was wicked rain, hail & wind. The roof of BoggsMobile may have some hail damage, the trailer definitely has some hail damage but Mr. Cheap Jeep is fine. We will look it all over better tomorrow but we are so thankful everybody is safe.
Thank God for helping and protecting us.

We have had a wonderful time with Pastor Kenny and Sis. Joan Morris! They are special friends! All of the folks here are surper sweet. Well, I forgot our "Anonymous Friend", he is just nice. LOL Just kidding, Bro. Jason. The first two pics are of " Bro. Anonymous".
As Dad said we were thrilled to have the Boyds with us Tuesday night. They helped the service so much! We also had great fellowship!! I caught some pics with my phone.
Bro. Jeff Smith and Family came from Jackson, Tennessee to be in revival. It has been good to get acquainted with them! Their singing has been a help. Pics of them are still on the Canon.
I must close for now. Please say a prayer for our voices. Spring allergies are camped out in the BoggsMobile.
