A Great Sunday!

I knew it would be hard to go from West Plains, Missouri all the way to Wilmer, Alabama and then be in any kind of shape for church Sunday morning. So I made plans to stop a couple hours short, go to church Sunday morning and then finish up the trip Sunday afternoon.

It proved to be a wise move. Wise moves aren't the most common thing for me but even a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then! By the time we arrived in Ellisville, Mississippi I was Way ready to stop.

We unloaded the 2000 GMC Yukon Denali (Still not settled on a name), rearranged the trailer (Without the Denali in the trailer all of the weight is in the front) and went to bed.

We had a wonderful service Sunday morning in Ellisville with Pastor Kenny Morris and his folks. We appreciate them allowing us to park for the night and throwing the door of hospitality wide open for us. We will be seeing some of them again next week in Richton Tent Revival. We shared a quick meal at KFC with Bro. and Sis. Morris and then hit the ground running.

We stopped by Richton and dropped the trailer. We will be right back there next Monday so there was no need in pulling it to Alabama and right back. Pastor Scott Morris was so kind to help me with the trailer and make my Sunday a lot easier.

We finished the trip to Wilmer, Alabama and the Apostle Donald C. Williamson was standing outside as the Welcome Committee to Tanner Williams Holiness Church. It is so good to be back.

This is one of our favorite places for many reasons, not the least of which is the warm friendship of Bro. and Sis. Williamson and their people. It is so easy to love folks when they are expressing their love for you and these folks do. The young people always make Odie feel a part of their group and that is special to her.

Another reason, OF COURSE, is the good food. They have great cooks in this church. Next Sunday is Homecoming so I'll be able to "sample" their very best recipes. Also the Boiling Pot is close by and we plan to visit there too. If you haven't been reading the blog long, don't worry I'm sure I'll be posting pictures.

Also the place we park is like our own personal RV Park during the day. It is away from the road and down over the hill behind the church. There are trees, flowers and even a bench to sit on. It is a very special place to park and we love that too.

Another reason we love to come to Tanner Williams is that we always have great church here! Last night was a fine example and we are expecting great things from God this week. Pray that God will have his way among us, will you?

God bless all.
