In June of 2009 we were at Bristow Camp Meeting in Bristow, Oklahoma the first week of June. Pastor Brandon Murray walked up and ask me when I was going to preach revival at his church in Lawton, Oklahoma. I said "Would this Sunday be OK?" He said, "Are you serious?" and I answered, "Yes, I just had a cancellation." Less than five minutes later he told me that he had sent out a group text to his church and we were going to have revival!
There went my week off at the lake!😎 And what a tremendous week it became for us in Lawton. We had a wonderful revival and became better acquainted with these great people.
I had preached for this church for a different Pastor, different location and different crowd in the 90's. I had also preached for Bro. Brandon one night a year or so before, but June 2009 was our first revival for him and we loved it.
The funny thing is that I often say "Would it be OK to start this Sunday?" when Pastors ask me to come. It is fun to see their response. I think this might have been the first time I was serious when I said it and Bro. Brandon took me up on it.😀
For our Vintage View Vednesday we have some pictures from that revival in June 2009. I can not wait for you to see the difference in some of these children when we post revival pictures on Friday.
I hope you enjoy. Thank you for stopping by this Wednesday.
