Weekend Woundup and Weview

We travel most Saturdays but we since we began revival at Junction Hill on Monday, revival was scheduled to go through Sunday morning. That changed our normal weekend up a little bit. Therefore our weekend report goes all the way to Tuesday morning.

Saturday Kelly Jo and Odie kicked around town with Sis. Galiher, the Galiher girls and Sis. Priscilla and then we all met for lunch.

After a great day we had a super great service on Saturday night.

After church Saturday night we parked next to another light Green Machine. Is this the next one?

The BoggsMobile needed to be ready to ride after service Sunday morning. About 7:30 AM Kelly Jo started on the inside and I started working on the outside. In 30 minutes the fresh water tank was topped off, the drain hose was disconnected, the hoses and electric cords were put away and the power chair was loaded in the Green Machine.

I cranked the bus at 8:00, KJ backed the bus to the trailer, we hooked up, she pulled up, she backed the car in the trailer, we strapped it down and then KJ pulled the whole train across the street to a gravel parking lot. It was 8:30 when she shut the bus down. Man, I love it when we have good days!

Ready to go.

The revival wrapped up Sunday morning with another very good service. You may get tired of me saying this, but I never get tired of revival. I love having church, watching God's people worship, hearing God's Word and witnessing God bless, encourage and help His people. I absolutely love it.

Revival seemed even more special this week. Praise God for it. 

Odie snapped a few more pictures from Sunday morning.

Some of the men helped us carry the sound equipment across the street after service and then we went to town with the Galiher's for a "little" bite of Mexican before pulling out and pointing south.

The first couple of hours going south and then southeast of West Plans is pretty slow going in the BoggsMobile while pulling the trailer through the Ozarks. There was no sense getting in a hurry, because hurrying on those roads was impossible.

We went 39 miles the first hour and 88 miles after two hours. At the three hour mark we still were not averaging 50 MPH, but we hit the interstate soon after. I gave up at the Flying J in Olive Branch, Mississippi a little southeast of Memphis. We had driven 209 miles in about 4 1/2 hours.

That was far enough.

Kelly Jo had a wonderful reward for me. Do you remember the picture of the brisket yesterday that Bro. James Wheeler smoked? This is what it looks like chopped, grilled and made into Carne Asada Tacos! Oh, Yeah! That is what I am talking about!

We spent the night at the Flying J and I let the girls rest a while in the morning. For some strange reason, I could not rest good Sunday night. I could have been driving again by 3:00 AM, but no sense in that.

Parked in an RV spot at Flying J in Olive Branch, Mississippi.

Once we cranked, I pulled over to the "facilities" to do "The work of the evangelist" and then we were on our way.

We kicked around at a Pilot truck stop later in the day.

Then a Walmart or two.

We drove in clouds, sun, rain and then beautiful clouds and sun.

Unfortunately our little glimpse of fall in Central City, Kentucky and West Plains, Missouri vanished. When I took the picture above it  was nearly 100 degrees and felt like much more with the humidity! Summer is still hanging on in the south!

We finally quit after about 8 hours. We drove 317 miles and we are only about 60 miles away from where we are supposed to preach the next three nights, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We are preaching under an open air tabernacle for Bro. Justin Sullivan near McKenzie, Alabama on Hwy 31.

The address is River Springs Campground, 26303 US 31, McKenzie. We would love for you to join us if you can.

We will finish the drive this morning by God's grace and get ready to have church tonight. That wraps up our weekend. Thank you for joining us.
