Odie's Birthday Recap and Bethany Notes

Hey Friends,

This is Odie reporting from Oklahoma. We just finished the second stop on our four meetings in the Tulsa area. It has been wonderful to be in this area again! We have so many incredible friends here! It is always a blessing to be in service and visit with every one of them!

Birthday Recap
Thank you to everyone who made me feel extremely loved last week on my birthday! I sincerely appreciate your love and friendship! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the comments, cards, texts, calls, emails and gifts!

I spent my birthday with my extraordinary friends, The Cummins Family. Several years ago, they adopted me as their family. They ensured I was spoiled way more than I could ever deserve! I love you all more than words can express, Cummins Family! 

Thank you for making my birthday extra GREAT!

I also had some special visitors I wanted to mention. My Uncle Steve and Aunt Karen came to see us. It was wonderful to have them with us for two services! I had been missing them terribly. My heart and face smiled when they were with us. We will see them again soon!

One of my birthday buddies is Sis Jessa Bond Detherage. We first discovered we shared a birthday back in 2006. Since then, we have always wanted to be together for our birthday, but it never worked out. 

This year, Jessa and her husband, Bro. Shamgar and little Leah came to the fellowship meeting at Bethany. We finally were together on our birthday! Love you, Jessa; thank you for spending your birthday at the fellowship meeting with me!
Odie's Bethany Fellowship Meeting Notes
Last weekend, we were in fellowship meeting at Bethany Holiness Church. We love being with Pastor Darrell Toliver and the people at Bethany! They always welcome us with open arms. 

We were there to do the special singing. It was a blessing to hear some wonderful preaching. Pastor Randy Webb was the night speaker. God helped him challenge our hearts to be ready for revival! All three nights were outstanding messages! 

We heard from visiting ministers the two morning services and Saturday youth service. Below, I included my notes from the services. I hope you enjoy a peek into the meeting.

Thanks for reading. See you next week.

The Weekend Dispatch 10/17/23

Our weekend began Thursday morning in Carthage, Missouri at Coachlight RV Park. It had been raining overnight, but slowed to a very light sprinkle as I went outside to prepare to leave. Yay!

I did the work of the evangelist and then took the time to rinse the black tank since the drain and water source were available. Then I attached the Jeep while KJo was cranking the BoggsMobile. Soon we were on our way.

It was interstate most of the way to Bethany Holiness Church in Sand Springs except for the last 6-8 miles. The 140 mile drive took us about 2.5 hours.

We pulled in and Bro. Jimmie Radcliffe was waiting to help us load in, get parked and then set up our sound equipment. He was great help to us all weekend long.

The Camp Meeting started Friday night with Bro. Randy Webb preaching. We were helping with the special singing and altar singing and we enjoyed every service. They had three services Saturday and two services Sunday.

We posted a bunch of pictures from the meeting yesterday.

We were blessed to see many great friends over the weekend and it was especially wonderful to see Bro. Larry and Sis. Rosemary Landress.

We had a late light Sunday and we were late getting started Monday morning. However, the travel day was only 37 miles and we covered that in 50 minutes. Yay Again!

Getting turned around at Bethany.

Arriving at Redemption.

About 4:00 we loaded in and got our soundcheck and revival service began at 7:30. It is great to be back with Pastor Leon Rich and his folks at Redemption. We enjoyed a great first night and we are looking forward to the rest of the week.

Thank you for joining us today.

Odie’s Bond Campmeeting Notes 2023

Hey Friends,

This is Odie reporting on this first Saturday of October. I hope you are having a fabulous fall season so far. I love this time of year. I have already enjoyed a few pumpkin flavored treats this year. 

We have had a full week. Due to a schedule change, we were able to take in three of the four days of the Bond Campmeeting in Kentucky. It was wonderful to be with Pastor Kevin Lloyd and all of our precious Bond friends again!

Probably some of my earliest campmeeting memories are from Bond in the late 1980s. Since then, I have grown up, but God's power has not changed! I am thankful to have experienced the power of God for myself. Campmeeting has always encouraged me to get more of God in my life. 

Bond Campmeeting was always a highlight of my year. I learned to appreciate preachers, preaching and the moving of God's spirit as a girl from the services at Bond. 

In recent years, we have been unable to attend the meeting like we wanted. It worked out for us to be there for most of the meeting this time! God met me around the altar! Words can not completely tell about the goodness of God's help for me during this week.

Below are my notes from the campmeeting services. I hope you enjoy a glimpse into the services of Bond Campmeeting 2023. We put up all the campmeeting pictures on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday's posts this week.

Thank you for reading. See you next week.

Thursday Pictures From Bond Holiness Camp Meeting

Odie captured some more great pictures from Thursday at Bond Holiness Camp Meeting in Bond, Kentucky. Bro. Galiher's preaching Thursday morning was phenomenal and so was Bro. Shuecraft's preaching Thursday night  Wow! Praise God!

This short stop at Bond has been refreshing in every way. Odie should have details of the services in her Saturday post. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
