Thursday - October 22nd

 

What a great day to be outside.  (At least on the north side of a building.  The wind was pretty strong from the south.)  The residents were more than ready to fellowship.  We sang for quite a while before we opened the Word.  Then we began to review who we are in Christ. Toward the end of the service, we got pretty happy.  

Strengthening The Saved & Saving The Lost

Wednesday - October 14th

 

I always look forward to coming to the Plantation House in Okmulgee.  We are meeting outside under the front portico and having such a wonderful time.  It was so windy today we all thought it was appropriate to sing I'll Fly Away.  We had a lot of fun.  (Which is very important during these times.)  Then we looked into the Word of God and talked about how we can live with peace that passes all understanding.  God is so good!

Thursday - October 8th

 

What a great day to travel to Muskogee.  We had another outdoor service.  Well, I was outdoors and the residents were indoors.  (One of these days we will all be together again.)  We looked at the Word of God in the light of renewing our minds and being doers of the Word.  The Gospel is the Good News!  Praise The Lord!


Strengthening The Saved & Saving The Lost

Friday - Oct 2nd

Today seemed like a good day to help the homeless.  (That may sound a little strange.  Every day should be a good day to help the homeless.) Yet, it's always good to be led by the Lord.  I road about 35 miles up and down the Arkansas river speaking to and helping many along the way.  Then because of the generous and faithful partners of this ministry, I swung by John 3:16 mission and gave a generous donation.  (There are many homeless who need shelter, clothes, and food.)  Thank you Life Senders.  You are the best.  It was a very good day!

Wednesday - Sep 30th

It was so good to see everyone again.  We were outside at the front entrance and under the portico.  The mailman came, Amazon came, UPS came, Visitors came, and we welcomed them all.  Residents want to see people.  Most of the time when these people come the residents are inside and never see them.  They were waiving at everyone who showed up.  These types of interruptions I don't consider interruptions.  Most of them were either singing with us of helping me preach.  It was wonderful.  We looked at the promises of God and realized we have a choice to make.  We can say yes or we can say no to the promises.  If you believe God is a good God you will want to say yes.  At the close of the service, we sang "Oh How I Love Jesus" and prayed a prayer of rededication.  Praise the Lord!  It was a wonderful day.

We had another great service.  The residents are more than ready to have visitors.  We could look at each other through a doorway.  I was outside, they were inside but we were "together".  I'm ready for the new normal to just become normal again.  I continue to travel Strengthening The Saved & Saving The Lost whenever and wherever I can.

Thursday - Sep 10th

 

It is always such a joy to come to this facility.  The residents and staff really honor the Word of God.  Sometimes I think I walk away more blessed than they are.  Today we lifted up the name of Jesus through some of the old favorite hymns: Are you washed in the blood, Jesus is the sweetest name I know, Oh the blood of Jesus, etc.  Then, we looked into the Word and discovered some key points to be led by the Spirit of God.  Oh, what a time!

Wednesday - Sep 9th

 

We were outside again today.  Everyone was so excited to see each other again.  The dynamics are a little different when you are outside and at the front door.  The mailman came, family members came to pick up residents, etc.  It all became part of the service.  We all cheered and thanked the mailman for bringing their mail.  I just mentioned that during these times it is so good to get information and love from the outside.  They all agreed.

We all sang about our wonderful Lord and Savior.  Then, we looked into the Word of God and saw how many of the early believers followed their conscience.  It is the voice of our spirit man.  Many said we could have gone another hour.  That's always so wonderful to hear.  They are excited about the Word!
