Whatever The Weather

Update At 9:50 AM Tuesday: No Church at Westside Holiness Church in Claremore, Oklahoma tonight. We will begin again on Wednesday night by God's grace.

Rev. Vance Havner is credited with the following witty quote about the weather.

Whether the weather be cold or whether the weather be hot.
Whether the weather be good or whether the weather be not.
Whatever the weather we will weather the weather, whether we like it or not
Vance Havner

We have had rain the last few days and with the rain, a cold front blew into Oklahoma. I have read that most of the US is having colder than normal temperatures this week. 

I took these pictures from the Weather Channel App at 11:39 PM Monday evening. 
30 degrees and going down to 27 degrees overnight.

22 degrees Tuesday night, 32 degrees Wednesday night and up to a balmy 38 degrees by Thursday night.

I believe that I definitely fall into the NOT liking the weather category this week. We have some horrible memories of Oklahoma winters while preaching revivals for 12 years out here in January and February. We said "No Thank You" to that many years ago.

Yet, here we are. I reckon Whatever the weather we will weather the weather, whether we like it or not.

Praise God we have not had to shovel snow this week. 
Here are a few pictures from a blizzard in Tulsa in 2011 while we were trying to have revival at Hilldale Holiness Church,

The Weekend Dispatch 10/30/2023

The last night of revival at House of Prayer in Tusla was wonderful. We are praising God for His help in the final service and the whole week. We appreciate Pastor Bill Parks and all of his fine congregation.

We have some pictures from Thursday and Friday.

Saturday afternoon we made the short trip from Tulsa to Claremore, emptied our tanks and got set up in the rain. In the evening we carried in the sound equipment and got a soundcheck.

Sunday morning was Pastor Appreciation for Pastor Jimmy Millikin here at Westside Holiness Church followed by a fantastic meal. It was a wonderful day and we loved being a part of it.

The Sunday evening service was a super finale to the wonderful weekend. Wow! Thank you for stopping by to check on us.


Schedule Note From Davy:
Pastor Phillip Horton from Richlands, Virginia passed away Friday and his funeral is scheduled for Monday. Pastor Jimmy Millikin from the church here in Claremore has a long history with the Richlands Church and He will be attending the funeral Monday. We will not be having revival service tonight while he is gone, but we plan to crank back up again Tuesday night. If anything else about this week changes, I will let you know on Mile Markers.
