Yesterday was a great day in Bristol, Virginia. We had a very good service Sunday morning capped off with a wonderful time in the altar and then they recognized all of the Mothers that were present. This was the first Mother's Day in this pioneer work and we were honored to be here as a part of it. I did not preach a Mother's Day sermon since I was focusing on tent revival but it was a beautiful day.
Kelly Jo and I usually set up quite a bit early on the first night of tent revival just in case we have any sound or equipment issues. I hate to be dealing with a problem 10 minutes before service time. Everything set up quickly and without any problems and here it is ready to go.
It was a little on the cool side but the service was great. God moved in the song service, the preaching and especially in the altar service and prayer line. The wing was coming out of the west but we did not put the walls down because we were getting some sun from that direction too. The sun felt so good.
After the sun went behind the hills I rolled down one wall to block some of the wind. Odie acts like she is cold! She is holding her microphone through her jacket pocket.
It was a great first service. Pastor David Horton and his congregation have a hunger to see lives changed and God was doing that last night. It is a blessing to preach in such an environment. It is also a blessing to have Bro. Michael and Sis. Tonya Switzer in the revival too. They are working right along side Bro. and Sis. Horton in this church. It is an awesome team.
I am sure we will have more good news later in the week. God bless you all.
