#19 Weekend Woundup and Weview

This weekend was definitely a working weekend but that is exactly the kind of weekend we like. Odie even got in on the action; cleaning her power chair.

By 6:30 AM Saturday Bro. Jimmie was pulling his trailer into Ralston Park and soon he was parked and ready to go.

The set up crew starting showing up shortly after 8:00 and in a couple of hours most of the work was completed.

The set up went well and we even attempted to wash the top of it after it was in the air. We did manage to get a few layers of Arizona dirt off the tent but we may have a few more to go. There is always something to piddle with the tent and that is what we did most of the day. We sure appreciate all of the help. We will try to post more pictures of the set up later in the week.

The church folks went out after the rain on Saturday and passed out a bunch more City Reach flyers. This church has passed out nearly 4000 color flyers in this city. That is amazing and we already are reaping the results from it. I will tell you more about that in a moment.

Saturday the tent was pretty quiet overnight. We did get to pray for a couple of folks and visit with a few more. I sure enjoy the interaction with people when we are set up in cities. Some are immediately asking for prayer and many are instantly curious about a tent going up. The tent is a tremendous conversation starter. I have heard that the days of tent revivals are over but they forgot to tell everyone!

Bro. Jimmy and I took turns staying with the tent Saturday night but some of the young men are helping us with the night shift this week. I am typing this under the tent late Sunday night but the young men will take over shortly and by the time you read this they should have their first night under their belt.

Here is the city park sign shortly after daylight Sunday morning.

Sunday morning we had a great Mother's Day service in the church. Pastor Jared Burris preached great and there was a great crowd there too.

Sunday afternoon found us busy at the tent but Sis. Cindy Burris and her helpers sent food to us any way! It was delicious! Today was also "Little" Jared's 18th Birthday. Happy Birthday, friend!

Sunday night we had a wonderful crowd and a wonderful altar service as well. We had several first time visitors and a very good number of people listening AND praying in the park. I always say that every time we set up the tent we have at least one person under the tent praying for salvation that has never been to the local church. We already had that last night and now we are looking for many more!

One of the people that prayed Sunday night came as a direct result of one of those 4000 flyers that were passed out! You talk about quick results! That is awesome! But I believe God is going to multiply that many times over.

Many of you have let us know that you are continuing to pray diligently for City Reach and we certainly appreciate it very much. It is very obvious to me and to others that God is hearing and answering your prayer! God bless you, friends.

That pretty much wraps up our weekend. Thanks for reading.
