Travel Day - Jonesboro, Illinois to Salem, Kentucky

Thursday was a travel day for us. First thing on the agenda was II Timothy 4:5. I make sure I fulfill this verse about once per week. Are you familiar with what it says? 

But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. II Timothy 4:5

Do the work of an evangelist. You probably think you know what the work of an evangelist is but you would probably be way wrong. The work of the evangelist is the very unpleasant job of emptying the holding tanks on the bus. 

Since II Timothy is written to a young Pastor, it is obvious Paul was instructing Pastors to do the work of an evangelist. Therefore it is the Pastor's job to empty the evangelist's holding tanks on his RV. Not many pastors buy into my sensible interpretation though.

Since we were close the drain, close to the water spigot, did not have far to travel AND it was not raining, I took an hour or so and rinsed the tank several times. While I was doing that Kelly Jo was getting things inside ready to ride.

Here we are about ready to go.

Jonesboro Trinity Pentecostal Tabernacle

The trip was about 90 miles from Trinity in Jonesboro, Illinois to Faith Church near Salem, Kentucky. It was a beautiful day to travel and the traffic was light all the way. We really made good time and did not stop at all along the way. We pulled into Faith Church about 12:30 PM and in a few minutes we were parked and hooked up.

We have preached here several times for Bro. Phillip Sanders through the years including a revival last year in April. Bro. Sanders and the church made a well planned transition in leadership in January and now Bro. Israel Sanders is the Pastor. Bro. Israel is a great man and God is blessing the church and his ministry. He is making his father proud and thankful.

We are very honored to be back here again even though we can only stay two nights this visit. Thursday night's service was excellent and we are expecting another great one tonight.

We will have more pictures from revival here at Faith Church in a later post. Thanks for reading.
