Our Weekend Woundup and Weview 11/12/2018

Friday night we had several friends visit revival at Iron Post near Locust Grove. They helped to make the last night a grand finale. It sure was a wonderful week and we appreciate Bro. Webster having us for revival. 

May God bless all of our wonderful friends. You were a tremendous blessing to us.

Who in the world are these visitors? I hope you recognize Bro. Bruce and Sis. Priscilla Mayhan by now!

Holy Roadie

Sis. Mona Buzzard. What a great lady! 

Sis Buzzard and her husband, Bro. Leon Buzzard, were very influential to us and encouraging to us when we were first on the road in the 1990s. It was wonderful to see her and their oldest son.

Before we continue with the weekend report, I have a little confessing to do. 

I purposely mislead you in yesterday's "View" post. I posted a picture that was taken out the front window of the BoggsMobile and I said, "This is the view out the front window at Flying J in Effingham, Ilinois."

What I wrote is completely true. The picture I posted yesterday really was a picture that showed the view out the front window of the BoggsMobile at Flying J in Effingham, Illinois. However, that pictures was not taken Sunday morning. It was taken in December 2014.

Why the subterfuge? It was necessary so that one person would be absolutely convinced we were rushing to get home to the Lazy OD Ranch instead of what we were actually doing. 

We were on our way to preach Pastor Appreciation for Pastor Scott Morris at Richton First Assembly in Richton, Mississippi and it was supposed to be a surprise. I could not very well surprise him by posting a view picture 110 miles from his church.

The church planned Pastor Appreciation and Bro. Scott knew it was happening. He was not supposed to know who was preaching the service and we had to do our part to keep the secret.

Bro. Scott was not absolutely completely surprised, but he was pleasantly pleased. It is hard to keep a total secret from Sherlock Holmes.😀

We had a super great time in the service and a wonderful meal following. The people made a great effort to show their Pastor and his family they were loved. It was beautiful. I did my best to honor Bro. Scott and Sis. Kim as well. They deserve it and I hope I portrayed my feelings about them in a way that came through

Odie took quite a few pictures.

Thank you, dear friends, in Richton. It was our happy privilege to be there on such a special occasion. Thank you for the invitation.

Now that you know the direction we went when we left Locust Grove, Oklahoma, I can tell you more about our weekend.

We left the Iron Post church at 10:30 PM Friday night and headed east toward Silom Springs, Arkansas. We turned south on I-49 and then east on I-40. We pulled into a rest area near Ozark, AR at 1:00 AM about 2 1/2 hours after we left. We had driven 137 miles.

My sleep was fitful that night, but we stayed over seven hours before hitting the road. It was cold overnight, but at least it was not in the teens as it was in Locust Grove, Praise God.

This was the view out the window at the rest area near Ozark, Arkansas.

At Flying J in Poplar Bluff, Arkansas.

The day was cold, but the sun was shining all day long and that made it a great day to drive. We drove 386 miles to Bass Pro near Jackson, Mississippi.

This was the view out the front window there.

Bro. Kevin and Sis. Teresa Webster gave us a traveling music kit and we were making music as we went down the road.

We sent the picture above to the Websters and they sent us this one in return. Haha!

You may remember that we left the tent trailer in Richton when we left a couple months ago. We intended to leave it all winter, but since we are back down here, we figured we will take it home with us. 

After the Pastor Appreciation service and the dinner, some of the men helped us get it all hooked up and the car loaded. It sure made my whole night a lot easier. Thank you, brothers.

First thing this morning we will head toward home with a planned stop in the Nashville area. The weather guessers are guessing that we will drive in rain all day long. I hope they are wrong, wrong, wrong, but not wrong enough to be snow instead.

That wraps up our weekend. Thank you for reading.
