Today is LEAP DAY! I want to say Happy Birthday to two friends. Bro. Bruce Mayhan has grandchildren but is having his 13th birthday. Bailey Boggs is nearly a full grown man and is having his 4th birthday today! Happy Birthday, friends!
Thursday, Friday and Saturday we spent working on the new PA equipment for City Reach and trying to get everything arranged and ready to ride. Kelly Jo has been working like a mule and I have been trying to keep up. I am putting together a post about the new equipment and all that goes with it. I hope to have the post ready later this week.
Friday afternoon Kelly Jo and I make a quip trip in the rental truck to Wynnewood, Oklahoma to put a bunch of stuff in the tent trailer that is stored there. We came back to Gainesville and picked up the Green Machine and then drove on down to Denton, Texas to return the truck. We arrived about 5 minutes before 6:00 PM. Just in time.
Here are a few pictures from the weekend including an ever important Taco Truck!
Sunday morning we drove the Green Machine to Plano, Texas to sing and preach for Bro. Tom Goodwin and the fine folks from First Assembly. I would have taken the bus down Saturday night but I was not sure I could get it in. It turns out that there is one drive I could get in so I will mark that in my mind for next time.
We had a wonderful service Sunday morning and great visit with Bro. and Sis. Goodwin and some of their family. They have a beautiful facility and their folks were very kind to us.
By the time we were finished eating I was not feeling very well. I have been running from some chest congestion for a few days and it seems to have caught me Sunday morning. We made it back to Gainesville by 4:00 and I rested until church time. I was hoping that Pastor Dennis King would let me rest Sunday night and listen to him preach, but no such luck.
He insisted that I preach and about half way through the preaching, I was glad he did. I really felt heaven come down. God moved in a wonderful way during the altar service and I am so thankful. The folks at Gainesville are like family to us and we hate to see them in the rear view mirror but that time has come.
We plan to leave this morning for Arizona and eventually California. There is only about 60 mile difference between going I-40 or going I-10. We actually prefer the southern I-10 route even though it is a little longer. However we need an oil change in the BoggsMobile and I can get that done in Amarillo, Texas on I-40.
If the weather was "iffy" on that route I would go southern but it looks good all week. So as soon as I have the tires checked, the bus cranked, the car hooked up and the holding tanks emptied we will hit the road.
Thanks for reading. I hope you all had a great weekend.
