Get ready for sensory overload!
We loved the last service of Revival at Midway Friday night. The Lord touched us and we enjoyed His touch. We also got to see my niece Diedre, her husband Ben and my only great nephew Charlie Ray. It was a great start to the weekend.
Steak for lunch Friday did not diminish the weekend at all!
Saturday morning we loaded the Green Machine and pointed it toward Louisiana. We had planned to take the BoggsMobile, but decided Friday to make the 700+ mile loop in the car. That proved not to be the best decision.
We were a little hesitant to trust the Green Machine on a long trip, but it performed wonderfully! It carried us there and back and that is about all you can ask.
Some of you may remember that we replaced the transmission in the Green Machine last fall at 198,000 miles. That was 7,000 miles ago, but we have not driven the car any long distances since then. The longest was 140 miles two weeks ago when KJo and Odie drove alongside the BoggsMobile between Virginia and Tennessee.
Update: Oops, I forgot. Odie reminded me that I drove her home from Tennessee in the car on March 1. I guess this was the second long trip.
Our first major stop in Louisiana was our favorite Mexican buffet in Baton Rouge. It is El Magey Mexican Buffet on Siegen Lane. We discovered this place several years ago and we love it! The price has risen considerably through the years, but it is definitely worth it once in a while.
Wow! So good!
Sunday morning we drove about 2 hours to be in the Pastor Appreciation Service at Christian Tabernacle in Pine Prairie, Louisiana. We were invited to be the surprise guest speaker at Pastor Appreciation for Pastor Chris Juneau and we were thrilled to be there.
This was the very first Pastor Appreciation for Bro. Juneau as this is his first year as Pastor. He was saved in Christian Tabernacle over 20 years ago and He is well loved by all of the saints.
God blessed us with a sweet service and I think Pastor Juneau was properly honored. It was a privilege for us to be a part of the service.
After the service and lunch, we drove 2 hours back east to Lighthouse Pentecostal Church in Denham Springs, Louisiana. Pastor Jerry Arnold has driven many miles to attend our revivals in Louisiana and in Mississippi. It was time for us to repay the favor and make time to stop and preach for him.
We appreciate the invitation. We had a wonderful time Sunday night and we look forward to going back soon!
As I mentioned yesterday, we had planned to stay the night in Louisiana, drive to the bus in Alabama Monday morning and then drive the bus to the panhandle of Florida. Hurricane Sally changed our plans.
Since the BoggsMobile was parked directly in the path of Sally, we left after church Sunday evening and drove 256 miles to the bus at Midway Assembly. We drove a total of 466 miles Sunday and 742 miles in two days. I must be a wimp because I felt like someone dragged me 742 miles.😁
Monday morning we were rolling by 8:00 AM and we drove 160 miles to a rest area just east of Jackson, Mississippi. As of Monday, it looks like we are out of the storm path, but if we need to move a bit more west, we can do that easily by God's grace.
Please pray for all of our friends that are potentially in danger.
