We mailed out Odie's "On The Road Again" newsletter on Friday. While Kelly Jo and I were working at the Ranch Friday, Odie was stuffing envelopes and putting on labels and stamps. I try to post the newsletter here when I remember to do it, so the text of it is below.
We include a small window of our schedule in the newsletter and I have copied it at the bottom. If you want to see what is coming up you can always go here.
I hope you enjoy the newsletter. Thank you for reading today.
On The Road Again
From Snow To Sunshine
Hello friends, I want to say our last newsletter was mailed the beginning of January and it seems that several people did not receive them. Also some random ones were returned. I apologize if you missed the last letter!
2017 began for us while shouting the praises of our On Time God with Pastor Crowley and our dear friends at First Church of God in Christ. I am so glad it worked out where we could attend their New Years Eve service in Wichita, Kansas. It was the the exact start we needed for this year.
New Years Day we were privileged to be a part of the dedication of Hope For The Hurting, a program sponsored by Bethany Revival Center. We are excited to watch God move in many lives through Pastors John and Judy DiZazzo and their congregation.
While in Wichita Pastor Terry White invited us to New Horizon Holiness Church. We enjoyed our visit with these precious people. New Horizon was home to us for 4 years and will always hold a special place in our hearts.
From there we traveled to Oklahoma. Revival at Amber Mission Holiness Church was a last minute addition to our schedule, but It was God ordained. We had 4 glorious services with Pastor Russell Cheek and family. It was wonderful to see God work!
The BoggsMobile then navigated the roads to Gainesville, Texas. It was so good to spend a weekend with Pastor Dennis King and our friends at House of Prayer.
By mid January the bus was ready for better weather. We are thrilled to get away from as much snow and cold as possible. Our first southern stop was Citronelle, Alabama. Pastor Darius Templeton and the people at Cedar Creek Holy Church of God always welcome us with open arms.
First Assembly in Douglas, Georgia was our next stop along the road. We had to hide from storms and I thank God for keeping us safe. We had a revival that we will remember for a long time. It is always fun to be with Pastor Marshall Adcock.
It was so good to be in Cantonment, Florida to be with our dear friends at Beams of Light Holiness Church. Pastor Philip Deane and his precious people are special friends!
The Lord moved in a mighty way at Grace Fellowship Holiness Church. We had a fantastic week with Pastor Jon Isaacs and the congregation in Elba, Alabama.
City Reach made us unable to get to some of our normal stops last year, and we missed getting to see many friends. One of those place was Forts Lake Assembly. I am thankful we got to spend a week with Pastor Tim Cauley and our friends in Moss Point, Mississippi. They treated us like family.
Our family split ways for six days. My parents enjoyed a great revival in Foley, Alabama. I hear they had a wonderful time at BibleWay Assembly with Pastor Eddy Sullivan.
I snuck away to the Singing At Sea for a quick vacation with my friend Kaylene Stephens. We had a marvelous time cruising to the Bahamas and enjoying Southen Gospel Music.
We joined forces again in Mobile, Alabama. The Lord blessed each service that we were in at Foster Grove Holiness Church. We had a good time with Pastor Jimmie McDuffie and his church!
Then it was time to visit one of our "homes", Ellisville, Mississippi. We love every moment we get to be with Pastor Kenny Morris and the church family at First Assembly. Words cannot describe how much we love this church and these people.
I am writing this from White Plains Holiness Assembly near Conehatta, MS. We are having wonderful services. We even got to see Bro. Ricky Boler run the ailse! We love coming here to be with these great people.
Allentown Campmeeting is on the horizon for us as I leave off writing. We are looking forward to it as always.
Well, I hear the engine starting so I better go 'cause we're On The Road Again!
Note From Davy:
Plans are moving forward on the house that we hope to build for Odie’s future. We are a long ways from having everything in place but we are moving forward. The prints are drawn and we are in the process of pulling everything together to submit them to the county for permitting. If all goes as planned, we hope to begin the dirt work by mid-April. We are hoping to frame the house and get it in the dry the week of May 22nd.
If you can swing a hammer, fetch a 2x4 or pick up trash, you are welcome to join us that week. Call us to let us know you are coming, how many you are bringing and what your skill level might be. If you are not a framer but you have other construction skills, we may have a place for you later. There are other areas of the building process that we do not have covered. Call or email us for more details.
We would love to provide places to stay for those that come to work, but we will be unable to do so. We do have several motels within 10 miles.
