New Hope Deliverance Outreach

New Hope Deliverance Outreach has been started recently in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma as an outreach to men and women recently released from jail. They are also ministering to folks battling substance abuse. Bro. Larry Landress is advising in this new effort and he asked me if I would mind stopping in to preach Tuesday night. Who me? Absolutely!

We had planned to start toward Virginia Tuesday but my excitement at the prospect of preaching in the outreach carried the day. I am so glad Bro. Larry invited me and I am so glad we were blessed to stay. The whole evening was an absolute treat.

When we first arrived in town Tuesday we parked the bus at Walmart and then went with Bro. Larry and Sis. Rosemary to lunch. We enjoyed a great meal and even better visit with our dear friends. We have not seen them enough this last year and we intend to make up for it!

We had a great crowd and a wonderful time Tuesday night at the outreach. God moved in the service and we had a 100% response in the altar from everyone physically able. Praise God for His help! I love watching God reach for people that need Him and I love to see people respond.

We were also blessed to see several friends that we do not get to see very often. We first preached in Pauls Valley over 25 years ago in August/September of 1990 and God blessed us with some life long friends in that revival. Some of those we see a few times each year but many of the ones we saw Tuesday we do not see very often. It was a real blessing to be with them again.

We have made tremendous progress on our cross country trek and we should be in Elkton, Virginia in plenty of time for church tonight.

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoy the pictures from Tuesday night.
