Our View Out The Front Window September 30, 2018

We did get the tent down dry Saturday! Praise be to God!

This was our view in Louisiana on the way from Mississippi to Texas.

This is our view today in Ellisville First Assembly.

Here are links to our posts this last week. I hope you enjoy them.

Thank you for joining us today on Mile Markers. I hope you have a tremendous Sunday.

Pray for Uncle Ed Mays

Hey Friends,

Happy Saturday, this is Odie reporting in from the BoggsMobile. We had a wonderful week in tent revival this week. The Lord showed up and helped us in special way in each service. The weather was an obstacle this week, but praise God we came through safely.

I love every time that we get to visit with our friends in Richton, Mississippi. Pastor Scott Morris and the church family of First Assembly always welcome us with open arms and make us feel right at home. We love you all so much! Thank you for allowing us to be your friends!

We took the chairs down and packed them away last night after church. The tent was too wet from heavy dew. We are not supposed to have more rain until this afternoon and are hoping to get the tent down before then but after the dew dries. 

Today I have a special prayer request. Please pray for our Uncle Ed Mays. Uncle Ed is a very sick man! Thank God there have been some improvements this week! He desperately needs a touch from God. We are praying for a complete recovery!

He is a "one of a kind" Uncle and each family member has a favorite Uncle Ed memory. This post would be long and crazy if I went into “Uncle Ed stories”. The stories that are rolling through my mind bring a smile to my face as I am typing this post. 

I am thrilled that Uncle Ed and Aunt Nettie were able to stop by for a short visit this summer. I was happy to show them my house and share with them my miracle. Uncle Ed was amazed at how it turned out! He kept saying, "I cannot believe how nice this is." That is a great memory that I will store away in my memory archives. 

This is Papaw and Uncle Ed at my house this summer. 

Also please pray for, his wife, Aunt Nettie during this time. This rough patch has been a huge stain on her too. She needs extra strength to make it through! 

This is Mamaw and Aunt Nettie at my house. 

Thank you for visiting here with us today. I hope you have a fantastic weekend. I will close for now.

Tent Revival In Pictures - Richton, MS

This has been an incredible Tent Revival in Richton, Mississippi this week. There is no way in the world I can properly describe the way the Lord has reached for people in the services and the blessings received by those that responded. I am loving it.

We have dealt with rain most of the week. We are still dealing with rain. But folks came through the rain and the Lord blessed. I do not want to take chance with storms and such, but we can have church even with steady rain as long as it is not blowing water all under the tent and soaking the people and equipment.

Thursday night the forecast was for a bit of lightning in the storm blowing through about 7:30 to 8:00 PM. As we were contemplating what to do, the deputy sheriff stopped by to make sure Bro. Scott knew about the storm too. Bro. Scott decided to err on the side of the abundance of caution and we canceled the Thursday night service. 

This has happened very few times in hundreds of nights of tent revival, so once in a while should be expected. Our average nights with NO rain is incredibly high, but sometimes the weather wins. It is supposed to be much better tonight.

I posted pictures Wednesday of our first tent revival here in 2011 and today we have many pictures from tent revival this year. I hope you enjoy the tent revival in pictures.

One of our many long time friends here in Richton is Bro. Brewer. He is always among the first in the church to welcome us back "home" and he often does it with tears in his eyes. He and his wife have traveled the USA in various RVs including the beautiful motorhome below. It is always a pleasure to listen to an old story or a new adventure.

Bro. Brewer invited Bro. Scott and I over for a home cooked breakfast. Kelly Jo watched the tent while we ran over for a little while Thursday morning. He and Sis. Brewer laid out a spread before us that was amazing!

Yes sir, that is T-bone for breakfast, one of the best I have ever eaten!

Thank you, my dear friend. That was a morning I will never forget!

There are times when I leave the table when I feel like I am so full, I may never eat again. You know what happens, right? Yep, I get hungry in a few hours. That is where Sis. Kim Morris comes in, one of the best cooks in the whole wide world!

"Rain, rain go away!" Did not work much most days this week.

Thank you for taking time to read Mile Markers each day. I appreciate you stopping by.
