Wednesday Night In West Harrison, Indiana

Wednesday included salsa, a short visit with great friends at the barn and a great Christmas service for Pastor Wade Hicks and the West Harrison Pentecostal Church in West Harrison, Indiana. Let us start with a picture of the salsa first! 

Oops, there is no salsa in the picture but I promise there was plenty of salsa on the table.

Before we went to lunch we had a few visitors. I will tell you more about that another day.

Early Wednesday I turned on the block heater in the bus engine since the temperatures have been so cold lately. I left it on all day and when I cranked at 2:30, it turned over and started without any hesitation at all. I like that a lot!

I had not started the BoggsMobile since November 15. I believe that is the longest time we have ever went without starting it and running up and down the roads, but we were gone 25 of those days. We will be headed west in a week and I wanted to make sure everything is in good shape.

We pulled out of the barn a little before 3:00 PM and hit the road.

We lost about 10 minutes in a traffic jam on the west side of Cincy due to a traffic accident but we still made it to West Harrison in plenty of time.

Kelly Jo and I carried everything inside and set up the sound system and we were ready to go early as planned.

We had another wonderful Christmas service.

It was a sweet service with a powerful conclusion and we were rejoicing by the time it was completed.

I know that God really helped some folks, including us.

Pastor Wade Hicks and Davy

Sis. Chrissy Hicks took the next four pictures from the congregation.

Pastor Brian Hisle and his family came to be with us Wednesday night. We were with them on Tuesday so it was a special treat for them to make the very long drive down to be with us a second night.

West Harrison was supposed to be  our last night of Christmas singing but our Pastor asked us to sing for Christmas service Sunday morning. We were going to be there anyway so we are very glad to accommodate Bro. Bennie. If your church is not having service Sunday morning, come be with us at Dryden Rd. Sunday at 11:00 AM.

Soon we were all packed up and on our way to Frisch's for fun, food and fellowship, not necessarily in that order!

By midnight we were backed into the barn and hooking up to utilities. I am very happy to say the BoggsMobile performed flawlessly for the 115 mile round trip. That really makes me smile!

Today the girls are going to finish preparations for Christmas and probably mosey toward Hillsboro. I have a barn project in mind that will involve a trip or two to Lowe's or Home Depot and then a day or two of piddling work. I want to avoid to much strain, we are too close to Christmas for that.

Thanks for reading today.
