Our Weekend In The Rearview Mirror

Friday we had a super lunch at Lambert's in Foley and then a great service Friday night a Bibleway. That is a pretty good way to close out a revival if you ask me!

We are thankful to Pastor Eddy Sullivan and his folks for being so very good to us. They fed us well, loved on us and responded to the Word of the Lord. That is about as good as it gets. We are looking forward to going back again.

Saturday morning the BoggsMobile cranked up fine and ran perfectly. I cranked it, unhooked the electric and water and then we pulled up to the side door of the church. Friday night we had taken down the sound system and placed it by the door so it would be easy to load in the bus. Once it was loaded, we swung around, hooked up the car and pointed the bus toward Citronelle.

The route we took was 85 miles and we made the drive in one hour and forty five minutes. Cedar Creek is one of the easiest places to park. We pull into the parking lot, straight up by the fence and then unhook the car. Easy Peasy.

Once the bus was leveled, shut down and the utilities hooked up, it was time to get down to business. The bus was filthy and needed to be washed. It not only had thousands of miles of road grime, but lots of greasy finger and palm prints on the back from the work that was completed in Houston. It was time to get it washed.

I took this picture of the back before washing, but the dirt did not show as badly as it was. All the edges of the back doors were greasy from handling.

Can you see the difference?

So much better!

The back of the bus had the worst of the dirt and grease, but the whole bus was nasty. Kelly Jo helped me drag the hose and scrub the wheels and about an hour later we were done.

Then Pastor Darius Templeton helped us carry in the sound equipment. We took about an hour to set that up and then mostly rested and worked on being prepared for Sunday. It was a pretty good travel day.

Sunday started early for me, because I was able to go to bed early on Saturday night. I woke up feeling well rested and blessed. God has been so good to us. He has placed so many great people in our lives and I am constantly amazed at their kindness, thoughtfulness and friendship. It is super great being part of the family of God.

When I awoke early Sunday, I was praising God for friends He had strategically positioned along the way. It is almost unbelievable how many wonderful people God has blessed us to know!

It was really good to be with the family of God at Cedar Creek Church for two services Sunday. They had a flu outbreak during revival week last year so it has been two years since we have been here. It is great to be back.

Pastor Darius Templeton, Sis. Kim, their family and all of these folks have a special place in our hearts. I love watching God work in His wonderful way among them. Sunday He was drawing men and women for salvation and the church folks were right in there with them. It was great! 

We plan to be here through Thursday night and we are expecting four more great services.

The Sunday services at Cedar Creek are at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. That left us free for the evening. We decided to ride over to Richton, MS for service Sunday night with Pastor Scott Morris and our dear friends. We arrived a few minutes before 6:00. It was great to be part of the service in Richton and we had great fellowship too.

 A super Sunday wrapped up a super weekend. Tonight we continue revival at Cedar Creek through Thursday night. We would love to have you join us if you are in the area.

Thank you for stopping in.
