Remembering A Hero

Hey Friends, 

This is Odie checking in for Tuesday. Dad asked me to take care of the blog today. I am sorry if you are looking for a Davy Boggs masterpiece. 

We are having a great time at Lydia Mountain Chapel this week. God has met us so sweetly in each service. Revival continues tonight and tomorrow night and I am looking forward to what God has planned for those services. It is always wonderful to be with Pastor Eddie Deane and Family!

I have been thinking a lot about Bro. Bill Houston lately. He was one of our dearest friends. We were definitely blessed to have him in our lives. My Dad quotes Bro. Bill almost nightly. He was Papaw Bill to me for most of my life. My human mind still cannot believe Papaw is gone from this earth. He is greatly missed!

Papaw has been enjoying Heaven for several weeks now. I know he is loving being in the presence of God! I can imagine him shouting and rejoicing on streets of gold. 

Bro. Bill Houston impacted countless lives. Almost every week someone is talking about something he preached, sang, said or did that influenced them. Bro. Bill Houston was a true Hero of the Faith. 

We had church at his homegoing service. It was a true celebration of his life and love for the Lord. I am so glad we were able to be in the service. I hope I never forget that experience. Hundreds of people were able to attend the service and I read that 300 more people listened to the service live online. 

Many of you have asked about the funeral. Our home church Dryden Road Pentecostal Church has a Bill Houston Memorial page on their website. You can click here to view the memorial page. You can find several videos of the funeral. You can also find information about ordering Bro. Bill’s singing cd’s by clicking here. 

Please continue to keep Sis. Darien Houston in your prayers. I know she appreciates the prayers! Mamaw Darien is a precious saint of God. I cannot imagine everything she has had to face lately. I thank God for standing by her and giving her strength. 

Thank you for visiting us today. We appreciate each of you for stopping by. I will close with links to a few older posts we did about Papaw Bill.
