The Tent is Up in Washington, Illinois

Please do not miss yesterday's post about the dumbest man I know and the BEST lady I know.

The Blue and White Gospel Tent is in the air in Washington, Illinois! 

All the folks worked hard and smart and made quick work of everything. Pastor Nathan Green and his congregation were joined by local Pastor Mike Radcliffe and some not so local folks from Granite City, Illinois. Everybody worked together and had a good time.

Bro. George Brimm and Bro. Joe Dikeman and his family drove 2 1/2+ hours one way to help with the set up. They were a great help and encouragement to me and to the local church. Plus they brought Krispy Kreme donuts! May God bless you all for making a special effort to support tent revival. You have blessed our family once again.

This was a little different set up for us. I have never set up on ground that slopes so much. The best I could figure with a long tape measure, a level and the tent poles, the ground falls 11 inches from the back of the tent to the front. That is far from ideal but thanks to the men that were helping we did get a good tight set up. It remains to be seen how it will effect the way the tent handles high winds but it sheds rain good.

Please pray that God will give us souls this week. This church has a long great history but it had dwindled down and basically shut the doors a few years ago. Some brothers had a burden to see it go and Bro. Green has been here for almost two years. I am asking God to save some families under the tent this week. Will you join me in prayer?

We are already fighting some spiritual opposition but we know the devil and his forces are no match for God. We are asking God to intervene and fight our battles for us. He is abundantly able to bring victory in every life, in every situation and in every battle.

Have a great Sunday and enjoy the pictures.
