Tent Down Early

The weather is supposed to get nasty tomorrow and Saturday. In fact it is supposed to start storming later tonight. The sky is lighting up with wicked looking lightening right now.

It does not look like we would be able to get the tent down dry until Monday so Pastor Lakes suggested taking it down tonight after church. It rained a little about 5 but the sun was shining and the tent was dry before church started.

After service the tent came down without a hitch. The folks worked hard and in just a little while it was all finished and loaded in the trailer. Odie took some pictures while it was coming down and I will try to post them when we wrap up revival.

It is always a relief to get the tent down dry and packed away. But revival is not over yet.We did not put the chairs in the trailer because we will use them for church tomorrow night. If it is not storming to bad we can have church under the pavilion next to where the tent was set up. If it is storming we can have it in the Gym.

The service tonight was excellent again and we are expecting even greater things tomorrow. It is amazing how many people from the community have been praying in the altars this week. God is touching people each night and I am sure that tomorrow night will be more of the same and better.

Thank you so much for praying for us.


Congrats Class of 2013

Tuesday May 28, 2013

We had another great service tonight (Tuesday) under the blue and white Gospel tent. We had two saved Monday night and at least two saved tonight. Praise God for reaching souls for Christ right here in Springville, Indiana. Hallelujah!

The crowds have been good each night with visitors from local churches, visitors from the community and the Tunnel Hill folks. They have been worshiping and praising God and He has been saving and blessing. Praise God for His help.

We have been taking pictures each night and we will post them later in the week. Since our phone signal is nonexistent and our Internet is slow, it is night unto impossible to email very many pictures to the blog. We should have plenty when the time comes.

We kissed a dear with the Green Machine the night before we left home in December. We barely hit the deer and she did not seem damaged at all. The Green Machine was not hurt too bad but the plastic bumper was cracked and two braces behind it were cracked as well.

Bro. Jack and Bro. Tom Jacobs from the Tunnel Hill church are excellent auto body repairmen and work in a local shop. The did some repair work on my tent trailer last year so I saved this job for them this year. Bro. Lakes and I took the bumper off and took it to them.

The Green Machine does not look very happy with it's face torn off.

My Dad and I had taken the bumper off last fall to install the base plate for towing. If I had not taken the bumper off before I do not think I would have tried it on my own. I am not the most mechanical person in the world. But I knew it was just a hand full of screws and it pops right off. It is not really driveable as it is. We will be glad to get it all put back together.

Have a great day.

Happy 70th Birthday, Dad

I know I use this picture every time I write about my Dad but it is an awesome picture taken on one of the most pleasant and happy days of my life. We were at Carter Caves State Park in Kentucky for a Boggs Family get together. It was miserably hot that day so we went down to the creek.

There is a cave just to the right of this picture and we could feel the cool air from the cave. The water was cold and only a couple of inches deep. We took a 50 piece bucket of KFC and our lawn chairs into the creek and had the best lunch in the history of the world. (Slight exaggeration possible but only very slight.)

We ate fried chicken, drank bottled water, munched on potato chips and threw the chicken bones in the woods. What a day. What a memory. What a picture to capture it all.

But since I always post that picture, here is another one of dad with all of his children and grandchildren except for the number two son and his lovely wife and daughter. (Oops. Odie pointed out that Steve's wife Karen is also not in the picture. Must have been grilling hot dogs.) This was taken today (Monday) in the cemetery in Corwin. This is Dad at his happiest, surrounded by family.

Tomorrow, Tuesday the 28th my Dad will be 70 years old. We are so thankful that God has blessed our family to keep Dad with us until this day. We hope to have him around for many more years to come.

Happy Birthday Dad! I hope you have a wonderful day. I think it is easier to be 1000 miles away on special days like this than it is to be only 3 1/2 hours away like we are today. By God's grace we will see you next week. Until then, please know that we love you and appreciate you so very much. Have a super great day!

Davy, Kelly and Odie

First Night of Tent Revival

We had a great service this morning at the Tunnel Hill Church and a wonderful first night under the tent tonight. The crowd was great tonight including several folks from Africa. There is a Sister that attends the church that is originally from Nigeria and she brought several colleagues from her work.

Some of them are from Lagos and Abeokuta and Ibadan, which are all areas we have visited repeatedly. It was awesome to have them in the service with us. Praise God for His help tonight. We had a young lady saved and a young man filled with the Holy Ghost.

It is late so I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. Thank you for praying for us.
