Revival In Pictures - Bethany Revival Center

We have only had three revival services at Bethany so far this year but it is time for our Revival In Pictures post. It honestly seems like we have had more services than only three for two reasons. Number one, each revival service has been excellent! Number two, we have also had two services at the Sedgwick County Jail.

I love preaching in the jail services each year and this year was no exception. God moved in the service Wednesday and Thursday morning and the men responded to His touch. Praise God for His help and praise God for the men's response.

Bro. Charles Mitchell makes sure that all of my paper work is in order each year so that I can enter the jail and preach. If he did not stay on top of the changes and communicate them to me, I would not be able to enter. 

He also plays the piano in the services and leads the worship. The men there love him and that furthers my ministry among them too. The jail services are a real blessing to me.

Our first revival at Bethany Revival Center was in August of 2003. We have been here every year so this is the 15th year in a row. We appreciate Pastor John and Sis. Judy DiZazzo inviting us each year and we appreciate all of these fine people opening their arms to welcome us each and every visit. It is a joy to be here!

You did not come to hear me rattle on today so let us get to the pictures. Thank you for stopping by today.


Grandmother Mitchell is now 95 years old and still getting around good.

Odie Has A New Bill

Odie has a new bill and it is exciting!

As we neared the beginning of construction last spring, we had a few choices on what to do for temporary electric. We could buy a temporary pole, pay to have the pole hooked up and then pay the monthly electric bill. We could use a generator to power the whole project. OR we could buy some heavy duty cord and run power from the barn. We already pay an electric bill for the barn.

That is what we decided to do. We already have a bunch of 50 amp cord so we bought some more. My Dad fixed one of them with 8 receptacles on the end and we used those receptacles to power the tools and lights in the house all summer long. 

We will use those cords for the bus and tent revival in the future. Plus we saved all the money we would have spent on the temporary service. It worked really great.

I posted this picture a couple of weeks ago of the meter base ready to go.

Yesterday Duke Energy arrived to run the wires and hook up the service.

Then they set the meter and the juice was ready to flow. My Dad sent me a picture of the meter at 000000!

I am sure it will not stay on 000000 for long and Odie will have a new bill to pay. Bills are not exciting but it is very exciting to have permanent power to the house! Woo-hoo!

That is all for today.
