First Night of Tent Revival in Bristol, Virginia

I am at the tent right now watching and listening to the rain. I need times like this. Our lives are noisy and we pack every moment with information and stimulation. When it gets quiet like this I am overwhelmed at the goodness of God even when I do not understand what he is doing. 

How did I get to this point. Where am I going? What is God's plan? What is my next move? Answers? Nope! 

Most of the time I do not have a clue. But in the stillness of the night with the rain dancing on the tent and the memory of what God did in lives right here just a few hour ago, I know He is in control. You know what? That is good enough for me. 

Revival kicked off in high gear Tuesday night in Bristol, Virginia. We had a good crowd and a really good service. Pastor David Horton started the night with some great songs and I tried to run with it from there. 

We are believing that God is going to send us several folks to be saved this week. Would you help us pray?

We are using the generator to provide electricity during service but the business next door is allowing us to use their power for lights over night.  I try to get down there about daylight to turn them off. 

I was a little early Tuesday but it is peaceful under the tent at night. 

These were taken just after sunrise Tuesday. 

The sound system is in place and ready to go. 

We had some special guests under the tent last night. Our dear friends from Ohio Bro. Bob and Sis. Tish Rice. They are Virginia residents now and it was a treat to get to see them. 

We usually have more pictures of the first night but the sky opened up and a few buckets of water poured out just as service was over. Some were rushing to help us get things packed away before it all got soaked and others were trying to get to their cars. So no more pictures.
