Weekend Woundup and Weview May 2, 2016

I am writing and posting this late Sunday night. We are hoping to get an early start Monday morning on our long trip to Atwater, California but with the hope of a decent night sleep and at least two hours work to get moving, early does not seem likely. We shall see.

It has been a wonderful weekend in Phoenix, Arizona. I believe with all my heart that God has brought us together with Pastor Johnson George, his wife Sis. Binu and the Bethel Christian Assembly. I appreciate Pastor Noah Martinez for introducing us to these wonderful people.

I never grow tired of meeting new people and singing and preaching in new places. I am amazed at the doors of ministry that God has opened for us and continues to make available to us. We are thrilled to walk through this open door!

We have enjoyed a tremendous weekend of fellowship and blessings from God. We had five services and each one of them was very, very good. Thank God for His blessings and His love toward us. What is man that God even thinks about us? Who are we that God would love us? Praise God for His mercy and His grace.

We did not park the BoggsMobile at the church during revival because the parking area is limited and we wanted to reserve plenty of room for visitors. We remained parked at the RV Park on the west side of Phoenix so it was a 35-40 minute drive to church. It is all interstate so it was not a bad drive at all.

Speaking of visitors, we had a big group of visitors from Desert Cove two nights and we loved that. I appreciate Pastor Martinez and Bro. Dickerson bringing their families and others to be with us. It was a special treat to have them. They must be gluttons for punishment since they have heard us for three weeks straight.

Also Bro. Stephen Zubia came and played drums for us the whole revival. We appreciate that as well. God bless you, friend. It was super great to have you. Bro. Stephen came Sunday bearing precious gifts, a whole bag of Humberto burritos courtesy of Pastor Noah Martinez! That's what I am talking about!

We had service Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday morning and twice on Sunday. The Bethel Church uses the facility of the Full Gospel Deliverance Tabernacle and they had a program Saturday evening that was previously scheduled. We had service on Saturday morning instead of Saturday evening. The morning crowd was wonderful and God moved in a wonderful way in the altar service.

Thursday and Friday nights, Sunday afternoon and Sunday night Sis. Binu and some of the other ladies served us traditional food from India. It was fantastic! Saturday afternoon we enjoyed a wonderful meal and sweet fellowship with Bro. Johnson and Sis. Binu in a restaurant. We love these people so much.

Pastor Johnson George has been a missionary all over India and has personally started at least 11 churches that are still operating. He has a passion for lost souls in India and America and keeps us riveted for hours with stories of God's providence, protection and provision. He is a modest man and we nearly have to pull the stories out of him but we are always glad we did.

Men like this inspire me to be sold out to God. God, help me to see that nothing in this world is more important than you OR more important than serving you and winning men and women to you!

I have posted some pictures from the weekend below and I am planning to have a Revival in Pictures post tomorrow. Thanks for reading.
