Our Weekend In Review

To tell the story of our weekend is to really go all the way back to Wednesday morning. We woke up early Wednesday at the hotel in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and loaded up the Green Machine for the hour trip to the shop where the BoggsMobile was parked. The bus was ready to roll so we settled up there, cranked the bus and backed up to the tent trailer.

We hooked up to the trailer, loaded the car and pointed the whole contraption toward Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. About 90 minutes later we were pulling into Riverbend Campground. After checking in, we parked and then removed the car from the trailer.

We stayed at Riverbend Campground during PFYC for the second year in a row. Owner Rex McCarter runs a very nice campground and has been very kind to us. Riverbend is very close to all the action in Pigeon Forge. In fact the entrance is located within 1/2 mile of traffic light #1. I have recommended it to several others and they have all been very pleased.

We really, really enjoyed the Pentecostal Fire Youth Conference last week. We posted lots of pictures from Thursday and Friday and the second post included Odie's list of all the preaching. But none of that can capture the atmosphere of the conference. It was so good.

Pastor David Webb and the PFYC board work very hard to produce a conference with lively worship, sound Biblical preaching and lives being changed in the altars. That is exactly what we have seen each time we have been there. We had a wonderful time.

We left Riverbend about noon on Saturday and enjoyed a beautiful drive over Jellico Mountain to London, Kentucky. We made one stop in Corbin, Kentucky for diesel.

We pulled into First Pentecostal Church in London, Kentucky about 3:00 PM. By the time we removed the Green Machine from the trailer, dropped the trailer, parked and leveled the bus it was feeling pretty hungry around here. I took Kelly Jo for a nice candle light dinner at Golden Corral and then we all worked in the bus until bed time. 

Revival started Sunday with two wonderful services at First Pentecostal. Thank God for his help and favor. We have preached here for Pastor Vernon Jarvis at other times including a beautiful Christmas service in 2013 but this is our first revival here. It is exciting to be here.

We are only here for three more nights so we are trying have as get as much revival in as possible. Thanks to those of you that lift us up daily in prayer. I know that God hears your prayer.

I hope you had a great weekend.
