Aug. 21-23, Open Arms Tabernacle, Brevard, NC
Good morning, friends! This morning I’m flying to Asheville NC, and then driving 45 minutes to Brevard, NC. This will be my first time to Brevard. I’m ministering this weekend at Open Arms Tabernacle (Church of God). I have been with some of the leaders of this church in years past at conferences hosted by Steve Holder, whom the Lord has used to bring fresh breezes of worship to many churches in the Church of God (Cleveland TN) denomination. Steve and his wife Melinda have come to be cherished friends of mine, and it turns out that Steve will be with me at this weekend of ministry in Brevard, so that’s an extra bonus for me. I am scheduled to speak Friday and Saturday evenings, and Sunday morning. Saturday 9:00 a.m.:
Excellent opener last night. A worship team from a church in SC led the worship service and did a tremendous job, just great people. Then the Lord helped me to share from the word. The Lord’s presence was meaningful. Saturday 9:00 p.m.:
This evening’s service was strong in grace. I ended up changing my message just before the service, and the new direction was clearly of the Lord. Jesus the Author. Then we ended the message by showing the baseball film (youtube). The confirmation of the Spirit and the affirmation of the saints was sweet.Sunday 2:30 pm:
Good afternoon from the Asheville NC airport, where my flight to Atlanta is delayed a few minutes. We had a marvelous service this morning, thanks so much for praying me through! There was so much affection and appreciation expressed, really just very sweet. Next:
Wednesday I’m off to Siberia. Back to you in a few.
