This is Odie checking in from Ohio. I hope you are doing well. Things are going good for us. We are in preparation mode. We are scheduled to be rolling next Saturday to Central City, Kentucky.
Before we travel, we have a busy week ahead. This is one of our favorite weeks of the year. Indoor 2022 begins at church on Tuesday. We are excited about the days ahead.
When not on the road, we attend Dryden Road Pentecostal Church. The church is located at 3201 Dryden Road. Our Pastor, Bro Bennie Sutherland and our church family, host an Indoor Fellowship Meeting every year.
This is one of the few meetings we plan on attending every year. This allows us to see many friends visiting us from across the country. Will you be joining us this year?
The campmeeting service schedule is Tuesday-Friday night at 7 PM. There will also be services Wednesday- Friday at 10 AM and 6 PM youth service.
This year's scheduled ministers are Pastor Bill Parks from Tulsa, Oklahoma and Pastor Dwain Galiher from West Plains, Missouri. Both of these men are excellent preachers and superb men of God. Visiting ministers will also be preaching during the morning youth services.
The Dryden Road Pentecostal Church services are broadcast live on Mixlr here. The Mixlr user name is DRPC-AUDIO. The services are also archived in the showreels feature of the Mixlr app.
I look forward to the encouragement and the help we get from the services. Campmeeting is a wonderful time to recharge our spiritual batteries!
The fellowship with family and friends is amazing each year. I make lots of great memories every time. I am excited for this year! Breakfast, lunch and nightly concessions are served during the meeting.
You can see loads of campmeeting pictures from the years past in our blog archives. We will have many pictures from this year in the coming days. Next Saturday, I plan to post my notes from the services.
There are some special days for a few of my family members that I want to commemorate today. We will be busy with campmeeting when these days roll around, officially. I decided to mention them a little early.
On August 23 1996, my cousin Lauren Elizabeth Osborn was born. Happy 26th birthday girl. You will always be our "Baby Lauren"!
How in the world have 26 years passed since you entered this world? We love you!
August 23 is also the birthday of my little cousin Jackson Lee Daniels. He will be 3 in a few days.
Happy Birthday, Jackson! I love you to the moon and back, buddy! I am glad for the time that I spent with him this summer. Jackson is one cool little boy!
There is one more birthday to mention today. This one is a big one! Miss Deidre Shoemaker entered the world on August 26 1992.
My world changed 30 years ago when God gave us Deidre Faye Boggs! She was my very first "first cousin"! God blessed me with the best sister/cousin a girl could dream of having. I did not know the joy my life had been missing up until that day!
Happy 30th birthday, Lil' Sis! I love you so much! I hope you have a fantastic birthday! Welcome you to the thirties club! We get to be in the same decade again for a few years.
My Uncle Danny and Aunt Jeanna are celebrating 31 years of marriage on August 24. They were married when I was 5 years old. I was their flower girl. This is a picture of me with them from last Thanksgiving.
Happy Anniversary, Uncle Danny and Aunt Jeanna. I hope you have a fabulous anniversary. I love you both so much!
Thanks for stopping by to visit with me today. See you next week.
