Alabama and Nigeria

Good news: We now have a bit of internet in the BoggsMobile this week! One of the young men in the church worked out the problem and we are cruisin' now.

Bad news: I am having a hard time extracting pictures from the dusty archives and transferring them here for Vintage View Vednesday.

Good news: We still have plenty to talk about, because even in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, our little globe continues to rotate at nearly 1000 MPH at the equator. Lots of things shake around at that speed and that creates all kinds of activities.

We are in revival this week at Midway Assembly near St. Stephens, Alabama for Pastor Lamar Chapman and his fine folks. We are having a wonderful time this week and we are loving every second of it.

Because the world is turned upside down, we are also preaching camp meeting in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria, West Africa at the same time.

Thankfully it is only 5964 miles from Christ Ambassadors Holiness Church in Abeokuta to Midway Assembly in St. Stephens, Alabama.

That is not too far if you say it real fast.

IF there was a bridge between Alabama and Ogun state and IF I could average 50 MPH in the BoggsMobile, day and night, I could make it from my commitment in Alabama to my commitment in Nigeria in 120 hours or about 5 days. I would only have to fill up the bus with diesel about 5 times each way.

IF I had a plane that could average 500 MPH, I could make the trip in 12 hours, but I would need an airport right next to Christ Ambassadors church and another in St. Stephens, Alabama. There must be a better way.

And there is a better way! Since US citizens are not cleared to enter Nigeria yet, I recorded the camp meeting services and posted them on YouTube. By the miracle of technology, I started preaching in Nigeria Wednesday morning only four to five hours after I finished preaching Tuesday night in Alabama.

I will be preaching twice a day for the rest of the week in Nigeria and preaching each night in Alabama without even cranking the bus, boarding a plane or whipping out my passport. That is a pretty good deal!

So we are thankful to be in revival and in camp meeting at the same time this week. Help us pray for revival and God's saints in Alabama and help us pray for camp meeting and God's saints in Nigeria too. May God help us all!

Thank you for stopping by today.
