The Weekend Dispatch 9/25/23

When I sat down to write the highs and lows of our weekend, I had the picture of this man staring back at me.

This is Milton Welborn. Milton was born again Thursday night in Tent Revival and he is a brand new man!

He said that he could not even describe the change that God had made in his life when he asked God to come into his life Thursday. Hallelujah!

A few more pictures of Friday night of Tent Revival.

After service Friday, the folks helped us put the chairs and sound equipment away but we saved the tent take down until Saturday at noon.

We will have pictures of the tent coming down later, but it came down and was packed away in the trailer just fine.

Normally, we would leave on Friday night or Saturday, but we did not have far to go and I had built in a couple rest days anyway. AND Bro. Scott invited us to stay over. I rested all Saturday evening.

Sunday was a worse than average travel day but after thinking about Milton getting saved, the frustrating day is not even worth mentioning.

We dropped the tent trailer at Allentown Holiness Church and then parked at Tanner Williams Holiness Church on Sunday evening. We are happy to have revival with Pastor Donald C. Williamson beginning Wednesday and Homecoming next Sunday morning.

We always have a wonderful time here and I am sure it will be great.

Sunday night we went to Trinity Pentecostal Tabernacle near Moss Point, Missississippi and we had an awesome service. We enjoyed being with Bro. and Sis. Alexander and all of the saints at Trinity. Bro. Alexander asked us to return on Monday night so we plan to do that by God's grace.

Thank you for joining us today.

The Weekend Dispatch 9/18/23

Let us begin The Weekend Dispatch Friday morning in Citronelle, Alabama. The BoggsMobile was disconnected from utilities, cranked, turned around and the Jeep hooked up by about 7:30.

By 9:20 or so we had driven 65 miles to Richton City Park in Richton, Mississippi. Pastor Scott Morris was there to help us wiggle in and set up. Then we reconvened in Hattiesburg, Mississippi for our visit to Front Porch.

Friday evening, Bro. Scott pulled the tent trailer to the park and we measured and marked the stake line for the tent.

Then we moved the tent trailer into its position for the week.

Then Bro. Scott fueled the generator and cranked it up for a test run.

Saturday morning we set up the tent. We will have many more pictures of that later.

On the first service of an outdoor meeting, KJo and I normally begin sound set up about three hours before service to allow for anomalies like bad cords and cranky equipment. We have adopted this practice because of instances in which we have worked to the last moment and beyond and then had to rush to clean up for church.

There are times when everything goes completely smoothly, but most of the time, we need every extra moment. Yesterday the sound set up and soundcheck went perfectly. Wonderful!

The first service was awesome. Praise God for His help and strength!

We are looking forward to the rest of the week. Thank you for stopping in.
