Ruckersville, Virginia Tent Revival

We set the tent up about 2 miles west of Ruckersville, Virginia on Saturday. We will be working with Bro. Eddie Deane and his family again this week like we did in Elkton for the last tent revival. In fact we are only about 20 miles from the site of that meeting. Elkton is on the west side of the mountain and now we are on the east side of the mountain. The Deanes live on this side so a lot of folks are excited about the revival. I can't wait to see what God is going to do. We start tonight so please ask God to give us souls in this place.

We have had 24 service under the tent so far this year. 24 services in 3 states and 4 cities and not one service interrupted by rain. I am asking God to allow that to continue but if He sends the rain I know there are many folks praying for rain across the country.

We have very little phone service this week so I will have to depend on Odie to post pictures from the meeting. Hopefully we can put some up.

God bless you all.

Day Trip To D.C.

Yesterday Sis. Taylor took Mom and I to Washington D.C. We have been there twice before, but it was nice to visit again. I love the history of our Nation.

Mom and I went on a tour of the Capitol. We have driven by but had never been inside. It was so neat to be in the Rotunda, the Cript, and the Statue Hall of the Capitol. The tour kept us moving alot. There was not much time for pics. We did get a few phone pics, I forgot my big camera.

Capitol Building

The Dome

A portion of the beautiful paintings circling the Rotunda. Different scenes depict historic events of our, country.

Statue Hall is the former meeting place of The House of Representatives. John Quincey Adams desk used to be at this spot.

We tried to get tickets to go up in the Washington Monument. They were sold out for the day.

After the Capitol we went to the Newseum, it is a news museum. It was an extremely interesting place! We did not have enough time to see much of it. I needed a couple of days since I am a news junkie.

A piece of the Berlin Wall

They had a nice exhibit on 9-11-01. It included many interesting things. One thing they have displayed is a, broadcast antenna. It was on top of the Towers.

It was neat to see interviews of the journalist who were on the front lines bringing us the news that horrible day. They risked their lives to do their jobs. These men and woman were shocked and grieving just like the rest of us. I was once again reminded of sitting on my parents bed all day glued to the radio. I am thankful someone was there willing to be persistent and tell the world what was happening!

We had a great day!! I am sure we will remember it for a long time. Thanks to Sis. Taylor for showing us around.

Bristow Assembly in Bristow, Virginia

We started revival Sunday morning at Bristow Assembly in Bristow, Virginia. This is our second revival here and Pastor Ken Taylor and his folks have welcomed us back with open arms. We are very thankful for all the nice people that God has brought into our lives and these folks are right there at the top of the list.

Monday night our dear friend from Montana, Pastor Michael Metzger dropped in and surprised us. He came to preach the funeral for Pastor Fred Goldizen in West Virginia and drove over to be in revival. It was so good to see him and we appreciate the special effort he made to come and be with us in service. He brought Bro. Bob Jeffries from West Virginia with him and it was nice to meet him too.

Kelly Jo snapped some pictures with my phone last night and you can see them below.

God bless you all.

Wrapping Up And Moving On

We wrapped up a great week of tent revival in Elkton, Virginia on Friday night. Bro. Eddie Deane ran the services and the Deanes sang each night and drew the crowds in. We were so privileged to work with them and look forward to working with them again starting on the 31st near Ruckersville, Virginia. The Sandy Bottom church supported the tent revival with their attendance, finance and participation. We could not have done it without them. May God bless Pastor Buzzy Deane and his fine congregation.

We had great services and survived the heat quite nicely. It cooled off some each evening and we are really thankful for that. The tent came down fine last night and we had plenty of help. The tent revivals involve a lot of hard work and we appreciate every body pitching in.

We traveled to Bristow, Virginia today and we plan to start revival here in the morning for Pastor Ken Taylor. We are expecting God to meet with us here as well. Keep us in your prayers.
