What did you do on the Fourth of July this year? Did you do anything special? We’d love to hear about it!
We spent the entire weekend on the road and had a great time. On Friday night we were in East Prairie, MO for their annual Sweet Corn Festival. The city closes down the streets for a street dance and celebration at 9 pm…but at 6 pm Elm Street Baptist Church provides FREE hamburgers, hotdogs, sweet corn, chips and drinks to anyone that comes out. This year they gave away over 700 hamburgers and hotdogs! We provided the music and entertainment for a few hours and then the church provided an awesome firework’s show afterwards. And yes…we all loaded up and left before the dancing started!
On Saturday we stopped by Bill & Cindy Keinbusch’s house for lunch and enjoyed some great fellowship before headed to McCrory, AR. We stopped and ate dinner at the Sonic when we arrived in McCrory. (It was the only place open!) While we were outside eating some folks decided to start the fireworks early and in the process caught the field on fire across the street. It brought back memories of living in a small town when the crowd started to gather to see what was happening. The McCrory Church of the Nazarene had another amazing firework’s display on Saturday night and also some pretty mean mosquitos! We worshipped with them on Sunday morning and had a great time. We also saw some family and friends that we’ve not seen a very long time. Our weekend wrapped up at Macon Road Baptist Church in Memphis on Sunday night. These folks are just like family and enjoying worshipping with them.
Don’t forget to check out the new photos that have been posted on the PHOTOS page. We have also changed that to allow you to post comments. The last thing that I would like to mention is the addition of a PRAYERS page on the site. We would love for each of you to post your prayer requests and testimonies on this page. We know that prayer changes things and we would love to pray and rejoice with you and those prayers are answered!
