#2 Weekend Wound Up and Weview

The last day I told you much about was Wednesday so I need to go back to Thursday to recap the weekend. Thursday and Friday we spent in the shop with the BoggsMobile and I will have a whole post about that later.

Thursday evening we met Bro. Joel Isham about 30 minutes from the bus shop in Maryville. We had a great meal at Cheddar's and it was very good to visit with our friend.

Bro. Joel lost his beautiful Mary in November. It has been a rough uphill climb since then and it was our pleasure to spend some time with him. Bro. Joel is a great guy and a faithful friend. 

We left Vonore, Tennessee a few minutes after 4:00 PM on Friday afternoon and pointed farther south.

We hit Chattanooga at high traffic and Birmingham, Alabama was a little heavy but we really made good time. We would have stopped for the night at a rest area just south of Montgomery but they did not allow overnight parking so we pressed on. There were no spots at Pilot north of Mobile but there was room to park at Walmart in Saraland.

I think it was about 480 miles from Vonore to Saraland and I was very glad to get stopped. I usually rest better in a truck stop than I do at Walmart so my night was pretty restless. We woke to rain and fog on Saturday. 

Kelly Jo brightened things up considerably with a monster omelet for breakfast!

The reason we pressed on so far on Friday after a day in the shop was this little guy.

Meet Gatlyn Solomon Yeary

And the rest of his family, The Isaacs!

They were singing at Cottage Hill Baptist Church in Mobile at 1:00 PM Saturday and we met Bro. Scott, Sis. Kim and Rylee Morris there. We had a wonderful day of music and fellowship with family and friends. It was super great.

Farrell Stearnes, another old friend, drove over from Pensacola to be with us too! He loves the Isaacs.

After the singing we had a great meal at Golden Corral with the Morris' before moving on to Cedar Creek Saturday night. We arrived about 7:00 to end a long trip from Ohio that started on Wednesday.

We had two really good services on Sunday and we are looking forward to more through Wednesday night. If you are close to the area, come be with us.

Pastor Darius and Sis. Kim Templeton

That pretty much sums up our weekend. Our internet service is very limited here so if we miss a day posting this week you will know why. It has been a bear getting all this loaded and I hope it will publish correctly.

Thank you for reading.
