Our Weekend In The Rearview Mirror 2/11/2018

Tomorrow I will try to have a full report on the BoggsMobile. I am pulling it all together now.

Our Weekend After the long day Thursday, we were in no hurry to rush back on the road Friday morning. We rested very well in the rest area in Hankamer, Texas. Even though it was pretty cool overnight, we were snug and warm inside the BoggsMobile. When I got up at 6:30, I turned on the generator so we could knock the chill off and also turn on the engine block heater.

I cranked the bus at about 9:00 AM and it started with no problem at all. I let it idle while I was preparing other things to go and then we said a prayer and took off. The bus ran 395 miles out of Texas, across Lousiana and Mississipi and right into the edge of Alabama. We stopped a few minutes after 5:00 PM and I was super glad to turn loose of the wheel.

I was even more glad to have some of Kelly Jo's homemade tacos!

As far as I could tell, the bus exhibited no problems and certainly did not shut down as it did Thursday afternoon. I wish we could have resolved the problem definitively, but hopefully whatever it caused the shut down was a one time fluke. 

The first breakdown two weeks ago manifested a problem and the problem seems to be corrected. This second shutdown is a mystery, a mystery that I do not like.

I need to be able to trust the bus every time we drive it. When we make commitments to churches, we do that with the confidence that the bus will get us there. It may take a while for the BoggsMobile to earn my trust again, but I sure do want to trust it.

The girls rested some Friday morning before we left as we were in no hurry and did not have far to go. We did have a small glitch in the bus, but I will detail it in a later post. The most important thing is that we made it to Bilbleway Assembly, carried in our sound equipment and put the BoggsMobile to bed for a few days.

We are extremely thankful to have that trip behind us. Praise God for His protection, His divine providence and His abundant provision. Friends, those are not empty platitudes that I write because preachers are supposed to say those things. As a family, we are praising God for all of that and so much more!

Saturday evening we set up our sound equipment and got our sound check. Besides a quick grocery run for Kelly Jo and Odie, we did as little as possible the whole evening.

The Sunday services were great at Bibleway. It is wonderful to be back with Pastor Eddy Sullivan and all of his folks for our third revival. We are expecting great things from the Lord.

Odie had a few pictures left over from their Wednesday in Texas.

Saturday lunch

Sunday at Bibleway in Foley, Alabama.

It is great to be back in Foley. Please keep praying for us. Thank you for stopping in today.
