Tent Down and Church in Pekin, Illinois

The weather was beautiful Thursday and the tent came down just fine. Everything but the tent was already down and packed away so we took the poles down and set the tent down right away. We were completely finished and everything was strapped down in the trailer in about 35 minutes. I am always glad when it goes well.

Odie snapped a few pictures.

I sure appreciate all of the help. Speaking of help, Pastor Mike Radcliffe and his family from Pekin, Illinois helped us all week. There were there to help set the tent up Saturday, brought folks from their church three services and came back Thursday to help take the tent down.

Since they were such a great blessing to us I could not turn Bro. Mike down when he asked me to preach in his church Thursday night. Not that anyone has to twist my arm to get me to preach. His church is about 30 minutes from Washington so we zipped down there last night and had a great time.

We had a wonderful service. We have known the Radcliffe's for several years and we are always glad to see them. We are used to seeing them in western Kentucky and southern Illinois but they have been pastoring for about 1 1/2 years up here in Pekin. It was great to be with them.

Today is laundry day for the girls and then they will spend the day getting packed. We are supposed to drive to St. Louis tomorrow and fly to California for ten services. We are looking forward to seeing many of our friends while we are there. It should be exciting.

Thanks for reading.
