Did You See Deidre And Ben?

Hey Friends,

This is Odie reporting it from Sweeny, Texas. I had no idea where I would be reporting from at the time that I first wrote this post, but here we are.

When I prepared my blog for last Saturday I did not have a clue that the BoggsMobile would be hospitalized last week! I do thank God for protecting us during our scary time on the side of the interstate last Friday! He is so good to us! You can read more about that night here in Monday’s post and more about what is going on HERE.

Thankfully the Green Machine carried us safely on to Sweeny, Texas and we were able to have revival as scheduled. It is great to be with Pastor Larry Lamb. We enjoy visiting with our family and friends at Lighthouse Full Gospel. I appreciate them providing us with a place to stay while the bus was in the shop. They have went out of their way to help us this week! 

We did have to cancel or postpone our revival in Elba, Alabama. I hate that so back. We love being with Bro. Jon Isaacs, his sweet family and his church. Maybe we can get by there later this spring.

Deidre and Ben

You probably spotted some familiar faces in our Revival In Pictures post at House of Prayer. It was good to have several dear friends visit us during that meeting in Gainesville, Texas. It was extra special to see some very important family too!

My cousin Deidre and her husband Ben Shoemaker now live in Sherman, Texas. They are working as Youth Pastors at First Assembly. Gainesville, Texas is only 30 minutes from them and I was hoping we could catch up while we were close. I am so glad that it actually turned out that we were able to see them 3 times.

Deidre and I are super close and any time that I get to be with my DeeDee is awesome! Several summers Deidre traveled with us and I will forever cherish those times that I spent with her. We are happy for any time along the way that we can add new memories and adventures on the road.  

Deidre is now working with her husband in ministry and I am so proud of them. Ben has fit well into our family too. We gladly claim him in our Boggs clan. 

You know I love you too, Ben!! 😀 Thanks for smiling for a picture. I know that your Mama will be happy as well!

Deidre and Ben are embarking on a new adventure together. In a couple months a son will be joining their family! I am super excited for Charlie’s arrival! I would appreciate it if you could keep Deidre, Ben and Charlie in your prayers. We are anxious to meet this little guy and spoil him!

I was so happy to see Deidre and Ben once again. Who knows when or where that we will catch them next time? Thank you, Deidre and Ben, for sacrificing your free time to come see us. I love you!

Well, I will close for now. I appreciate you taking time out of your day to check in with me. Have a great weekend.
