What's Up Weekend? 11/30/2020

Wow! This is the last day of November 2020. For a year that seems to be dragging on forever, it sure seems to be flying by! Only 31 more days until we roll the calendar.

Our weekend started Saturday morning as we finished the trip to Souls Harbor Church in Colorado Springs. It was only 74 miles on a good two lane road so we were only moving for one hour and 40 minutes. We are always very thankful to arrive safe and without trouble.

KJo took this picture of Pike's Peak as we were coming into town.

I did some repair work, putting new ends on some of my 50 amp RV cords.

We took this picture Friday in Limon of another Green Machine. The guy driving it stopped and took a picture of our Green Machine by the bus. So Funny!

Friday night

Once we were parked and settled at Souls Harbor, we unloaded sound equipment and got set up.

They have moved their services to their gym to give people more room to spread out if they wish.

We had a wonderful service Sunday morning followed by a dinner. There were lots of visitors in attendance with many of them working in the trucking industry. They were honoring truckers for keeping America moving. It was very nice.

Sunday night was great too! Praise God for His help!

We plan to be in revival here all week at 7:00 PM each night. Pack up and come see us IF you can. We would love to have you!

Thank you for joining us today.

View Out The Front Window 11/29/2020

Sunday Morning Sanity
Silence is often misinterpreted but never misquoted.  Unknown   

This was our view out the front window of the bus at a rest area near Wakeeney, Kansas.

This was our view out the window at Flying J in Limon, Colorado.

This is our view this week out the front window of the BoggsMobile in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Maybe you would like to see our view of Pike's Peak as we were driving into town.

Or the view of Pike's Peak from the church parking lot.

May God bless you all with a super great Sunday. Thank you for stopping in today.

My Special Friend Jessie Everett

Hey Friends,

Happy Saturday, this is Odie checking in with you from Colorado. It is great to see you here. How was your week? Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? I am doing great.

We often talk here about the wonderful friends. It is a massive blessing to have friends! A lot of my friendships happened by, what seemed like, chance. I can look back and see that God has orchestrated many of my friendships. My friends have been there for me during important times of life.

One of those big times happened when I was thirteen. We moved from Ohio and started pastoring in Kansas. We had been at home for six years so moving was a huge change for me. I remember being extremely worried about leaving home. My family and lots of my friends were now eight hundred miles away. I wondered how I would survive the change.

God blessed me with a great group of friends! It was so good to make new friends at revivals, youth camps and camp meetings. We were all from different places but we meshed together beautifully. We had a blast together. I needed that special friend group. They accepted me and welcomed me with open arms. I honestly do not remember feeling like the new girl. It was awesome!

Years later I still keep close contact with some of those friends. Life has had twists and turns for all of us. Many miles separate most of us and we never get to all be in one place. One thing has not changed, we are forever friends! I am thankful for all of them. Their gift of friendship is something that I treasure.

I got to see one of my special friends earlier this year and it made me so happy!

My Friend Jessie Everett
I was fourteen years old when I met Jessie Kewer. We quickly became friends. Jess was super shy back then. She enjoyed being in the background.

Twenty years have passed and she is one of my dearest friends. We share a ton of great memories. We have been together celebrating the happy moments of life. Also, we have supported one another when life has knocked the breath out of us! I am thankful for the bond of our friendship.

Now our paths do not often connect, but any time that we are together is special. Jessie married Chad Everett almost eleven years ago. They now travel and work in the ministry. It is always good to hear that God is blessing their ministry.

West Virginia is home base for Jessie and Chad. I was thrilled when our May visit to Romney, West Virginia made it possible for me to see Jessie. Thankfully they were home and could come to revival.

The visit was short and sweet, but I needed those few moments with my friend. Due to social distancing, our hugs were air hugs. It was wonderful to catch up with Jessie again. We are already looking forward to the next visit.

Jessie and Chad, Thanks for taking the time to be with us! Jess, I love ya, girl! Thanks for always being my friend. I appreciate you more than you can ever know. I hope to see you again soon.

Thanks for visiting the blog today. It is great to have you spend a few moments with me. I hope you have a fabulous weekend.

Wichita, Kansas and Thanksgiving in Colorado

We hope you had a great Thanksgiving week. We sure enjoyed our week. We worked on videos most of the day Monday and Tuesday and I recorded a Thanksgiving sermon on Wednesday. You should begin seeing the videos we recorded this week by mid-December.

We recorded in a beautiful chapel!

We shared meals with Steve and Karen Sunday night, Monday and Tuesday and we cherished every moment with them and every morsel too!

This is a beautiful picture below! It would make a great advertisement.

We left Wichita Wednesday afternoon and traveled  427 miles by Thursday about noon Mountain time. Before we left Wichita, I lifted KJo up through the escape hatch and she made sure the Air Conditioner covers were secure. We have lost two along I-70 in Kansas and Colorado due to high winds.

Thankfully, we did not have to drive through snow, but there was snow on the grass for several miles in Kansas. This is the first snow we have seen this season and it is enough for me!

The BoggsMobile pulled into a familiar place at Flying J in Limon, Colorado and we enjoyed a good Thanksgiving meal across the interstate at the TA truck stop restaurant.

Friday is usually Revival In Pictures so we have one for you. Pastor EJ Lamb was joining us for service Tuesday night and Stella climbed up to watch with him. Sweet!

Today is set aside for bookwork! Tomorrow, by God's grace, we will finish the drive to Colorado Springs and get ready for revival to begin on Sunday morning. Pray for us.

Now that we are on Mountain time, I will try to post before I go to bed each night so the new Mile Marker will be up for the early risers in the east. Thank you for joining us on Mile Markers today.
