2013 - Our 11th Year in the Rear View Mirror.

The end of 2013 marks our 11th consecutive year on the road, 13 1/2 total years of evangelism and 17 1/2 years of full time ministry. We drove the BoggsMobile 12,515 miles. We preached in at least 20 states and two foreign countries in 2013 and were blessed to see many people find Christ as their Lord.

We have had some great revivals, tent revivals and super great trips to Nigeria, West Africa and to Chiapas, Mexico. We have experienced God working in our physical bodies, our finances and in our spiritual man. He has blessed us with little and he has blessed us with abundance. God has answered some of our prayers with amazing attention to our detailed requests and He has answered some prayers with little resemblance to what we asked at all. Thank God for EVERY answered prayer in 2013

In 2013 we have wept and danced with joy and moaned and sorrowed in sadness. We have had extremely high times and we have had extremely low times. We have soared over adversity and been brought low by events that should have been trivial. We have laughed and cried. But through it all God is still God and He is still in control.

As a family we are kind of glad to bid 2013 goodbye and embrace whatever God has in store for us in 2014. Praise God for His constant care and faithfulness.

Below is a summary of our travels this year with maps to go along with it. Hopefully you can zoom in or zoom out on the maps for a better look.
