I mentioned yesterday that there are folks in revival at Castle Rock that we already know. It has been great to see them again and to be reminded that we live in a pretty small world after all.
Bro. John Lutz and his wife attend the church here in Castle Rock. We first met them in 2005 in Charlotte, North Carolina at Paw Creek Ministries Camp Meeting. Pastor Joseph Chambers had invited us to the camp meeting to do the special singing and to preach some during the day services. It was our very first Paw Creek camp meeting and it is also the meeting where we met our very good friend Bro. Kenny Morris from Ellisville, Mississippi.
Bro. and Sis. Lutz had been looking for a good Pentecostal church in the Denver area for 10 years. They found Bro. Chambers on the internet and they were blessed by his world wide ministry. They decided to attend the camp meeting in North Caroline in 2005. I met them there and found out where they were from and that they needed a good church. I told Bro. John there was a new church in the Denver area. It turns out that the church was seven miles from their home. They visited and quickly became part of the church.
Pastor McCoy and his family also attended the church in Denver. In the process of time, that church shut down and a few years later the church in Castle Rock began. 10 years after we first connected them with the church in Denver, we get to see them again as part of a good church! That is awesome!

When Bro. and Sis. Acuff walked into service Wednesday night I instantly knew that I knew them very well but that they were out of their correct geographical area. As soon as they said Tulsa I knew who they were. We met them several years ago at a benefit singing we did in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. They visited revivals at South Mission in Broken arrow and tent revival at Westside Holiness in Claremore.
We fell in love with them and their children during that time and we had wondered about them several times since they moved from the area. Their Pastor had told me they moved but I could not remember where. It is wonderful to see them again and get to be in church with them. They are super great folks.
Bro. and Sis. Acuff attend the church in Colorado Springs about an hour or so away but they have been in church with us both nights so far. They have been a blessing and we are looking forward to more fellowship with them this weekend.

Another friend showed up at church Thursday night. Pastor Thomas from Souls Harbor Church in Colorado Springs surprised us with a visit. Of course he knows all these folks well and came for fellowship but we are honored that he came while we are here. We sang and preached for Pastor Thomas in 2010 and it was so good to see him again.

It is great to see old friends and it is also great to make new friends along the way. That is what we are doing this week in Castle Rock, Colorado. Thank you for praying for us.
