Here & There
For me, this is a special time of the year. While the days are warm, the mornings are extremely comfortable as I make my way to the front porch with my prayer list, Bible and devotional books; and need I say a hot cup of coffee. It is a place that I seek to meet with the Sovereign Saviour and experience some intimate moments with Him. In spite of the fact that the leaves haven’t begun to change colors, one can discern that fall is quickly approaching. The poplar tree has begun to drop an occasional leaf as it gently floats to the ground on the thermal currents of a new day as a doe with her two fawns make their way to their beds for the day.
After the refreshing days at Taylorsville camp meeting, Glenda and I cut across North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. It is a blessing to worship with God’s people as we endeavor to magnify Him through the preaching of the Word! Then Glenda and I did something, we hadn’t done in twenty-seven years, we took a scheduled vacation. We praise the Lord for His gracious provisions and the days of relaxation. We returned to be with the fine folks at Crossway Baptist Church in Gate City, Virginia. We enjoyed great liberty in the services and so much appreciate the kindness of these sweet folks. We are packing and getting ready to migrate to the mountains of West Virginia to begin revival at Pond Creek Baptist. Please pray for the services that God would be pleased to meet with us in every service.
Lasts week, I returned for a follow up with the doctor concerning the torn muscles in my right leg. It appears that I had made significant improvement and wouldn’t require surgery if I continued to show progress as a result of physical therapy. He said that we were looking at about four more months of physical therapy.
Please continue to pray for Glenda and me as we fulfill God’s call on our lives as we serve Him in the field of evangelism. We are excited about the honor and privilege of being a co-laborer with Him! If you have the opportunity to drop in on a service, please come by; it would be a delight to have you in the services!
Because of Him
