Weekend Woundup and Weview 2/26/2018

The weekend began dreary and rainy weather wise. The weekend closed last night dreary, rainy and COOL, but do not let the weather fool you. The dreary weather could not infect everything. We had a fantastic weekend in spite of the elements.

You can see how it was Friday morning in Louisiana as I hooked up the Green Machine to the BoggsMobile at Bass Pro. I did get a little break in the rain so I did not have to get soaking wet.

Although it rained most of the way to Ellisville, we did have quite a bit of sunshine and even a few miles of dry pavement and a rainbow. 

The traffic was constant across I-10 but not super heavy. We turned north on I-59 and about 100 miles later we were pulling into First Assembly in Ellisville, Mississippi.

We were in no hurry to leave Louisiana so it was nearing 4:00 when we arrived at the church. The total trip was only 180 miles. I could do that with my eyes closed and probably have a few times! 😉

I mentioned yesterday that we parked on the north side of the church temporarily. The Wild Game Supper was Friday night and the chefs needed plenty of room to work. The supper is a fund raiser for the Christian School and this is the third time we have been able to attend. We love it!

We took a bunch of pictures and we will post them later in the week if all goes as planned. Here is a sample.

We went to bed Friday night will full stomachs from all of the great food and full hearts from all of the great fellowship!

Odie had a big day planned for Saturday. She was spending the day with Deidre!

Deidre is my niece, my brother Steve's girl, and the next grandchild after Odie in the Boggs family. She married Ben Shoemaker in October and they live about an hour away from here. Deidre drove down and she spent part of the day kicking around Hattiesburg with Odie. We all enjoyed getting to see her. She is a special girl.

While Odie was gallivanting around, Kelly Jo went to do laundry and I carried in and set up the sound equipment. I am pretty sure that KJ was on the bad end of the deal!

Saturday evening Pastor Kenny Morris and Sis. Joan took us to Magee, Mississippi to visit the world famous Berry's Seafood and Catfish House. They have a buffet that is not for the faint of heart! It was fabulous!

Odie picked up a little something on her wheel when she visited the restroom before we left the restaurant. I was singing, "When the ROLL is called up yonder."

We had a great evening with our friends. We went back to the church and worked on our soundcheck while visiting some more. Bro. Kenny and Sis. Joan Morris are great people and we love being with them.

Revival kicked off Sunday with two great services. The youth department prepared lunch Sunday afternoon too.

We had visitors from down near Richton, Mississippi Sunday night. Mike and Penny Hyde came to be in service and we sure do appreciate it. We met them a few years ago in tent revival in Richton and they have visited a few revivals since then. Once they were here, they realized they have connections with folks from the church. It is a small world.

Next, we have a strange item for you.😁

That wraps up our wonderful weekend. Thank you for stopping by to visit us today. Come back and see us real soon.
