If you missed yesterday's post, please check it out.
We could not have church under the tent last night in Millry, Alabama. The rain was just way too much for the ground to deal with and there was water standing under the tent. The rain did stop for the most part by 6:00 but everybody would have been sloshing in water and it was cold too.
The sun is shining this morning and everything is drying out. We should be good to go tonight. I am excited to see what the Lord is going to do.
Along with the heavy rain yesterday we also had some very strong winds. I believe they were the strongest sustained winds that I have experienced with this tent. Thankfully the stakes are deep and the tent was very tight. Although I did tightened a few straps during the storm, the tent performed great. I believe the Miami Missionary Tent Company makes one of the best tents you can buy.
The wind was strong enough to blow over about 3/4 of the chairs yesterday. The only other time that has happened to me was under the tent I used in 2011 in Miami, Oklahoma. The National Weather Service said we had 60-70 MPH straight line winds that night and I believed it. That was a scary night. Bro. Jimmy Millikin and I fought to save that tent for a couple of hours in that storm and we were praising God that it held.
The wind was not as strong yesterday as that night in 2011 but the chairs could not stand up. It was rocking the bus, moving the chairs, flapping the tent and causing the Boggs family to pray through. Prayer is always good.
I am believing God for some more souls added to the kingdom of God in the service tonight and in the services Sunday. Will you pray with us and for us? Thank you.
