Then And Now With Nicole Estes

Hey Friends,

This is Odie reporting in from the road. The BoggsMobile is bound for Colquitt, Georgia. We are excited to be with Pastor Jonathan Prickett and our friends at Mount Olive. I am expecting a great week of revival ahead.

I have been contemplating doing some flashback posts with pictures from some of my friends and pairing them with a more recent photo. My dear friend Nicole Estes recently sent me some old pictures. I thought it was a great place to start my periodic Then and Now posts.

It is always neat to see pictures of my friends and me when we were much younger. I still see most of the kids in this picture semi-frequently. 
This is definitely a blast from the past. If my memory is correct, this was taken in 1994. We were in Oklahoma visiting family, and we stopped to see our friends in Blanchard, Oklahoma too. 

I first remember meeting Nicole Estes and her sisters in January 1993. Dad preached a three week revival at their church. We played together and really hit it off. We have many good memories from that revival.

I did not realize as a girl that I was making lifelong friendships. I can look back and see the fingerprints of God at work. He was introducing me to young ladies that would be a very important part of my life.

Here are some pictures from our latest visit during the Allentown meeting last month. 

After thirty years of friendship, we can always pick up where the last visit ended. We do not have to be in constant contact for our friendship to be solid. 

It is great to have friends like Nicole that have my back. We can laugh, cry and pray together. I appreciate that she has never let my disability stand in the way of being my friend.

I am so grateful for the wonderful friendships God has brought me! Every year I am learning the value of a true friend even more. I am trying harder to show my appreciation for my friends!

Thanks for visiting with me today. See you next time.

Odie’s Allentown Campmeeting Notes 2023

Hey Friends,

This is Odie reporting from Alabama. I hope you are having a good weekend.

We are looking forward to beginning revival tomorrow in Elba, Alabama. It will be great to be with Pastor Jon Isaacs and our friends at Grace Fellowship!

We had a fantastic time this week at the Allentown March Meeting in Semmes, Alabama. Campmeeting was Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We were able to attend the meeting on Wednesday and Thursday.

The services are always a spiritual recharge to our spirits. We get to have wonderful fellowship with friends along the way too. Campmeeting is a fabulous place to make memories.

Dad posted our 2023 Allentown pictures on Thursday and Friday of this week. Below are my notes from the service we attended. I hope you enjoy just a glimpse into the campmeeting.

Thank you for visiting with me.
