WHERE WE BEEN
We have just returned from a revival at Magnolia Baptist Church in Crawford, OK. It was a good meeting with some of he most wonderful folks you could every wish to meet. From the moment we arrived until the meeting was over they made Mary and I feel like part of their family! God blessed during the meeting, had some decisions and the attendance was great! Crawford, OK is in the far western part of Oklahoma and some of the lest populated places in Oklahoma. These folks have a great fellowship and are doing a lot to reach those in the area! Our prayers will be with them as they minister and hope someday to be able to return once again!
WHERE WE ARE GOING
For the next few weeks we will be in and out, but only have one meeting scheduled in December, in Balmorhea, Texas. We will be going there for the fourth time this year! Scheduled is a Cowboy Christmas Program, and going with us are two couples that have traveled many miles with Mary and I during the past! Bob and Donna Whitchurch and J.D. and Lucinda Couch. We will be doing a movie night, Sunday Services, and a special program on Sunday night, where we will hand out the old fashioned Christmas Sacks!
Also, in December 1st, we will be attending a special birthday celebration for a man that has been with SCM since we started many years ago. Albert Lumm will be 100 years old on Christmas day, and this celebration on the 1st of the month will be a great time with friends and family!
This month, we lost a very good friend, Mrs. Dorothy Willoughby, from Bella Vista, Arkansas. We ask that you pray for her husband Earl as he deals with this sudden loss. They both were very important members of the Green Country Cowboy Camp Meeting and she will be greatly missed this coming year! We know the mixed feelings the family must have, knowing how much she will be missed, but also knowing she is now at peace with Jesus! Thanks for your prayers for Bro. Earl and the family
"TRUTH IS FALLEN IN THE STREET"
In a few weeks we will be remembering and celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Several hundred years before Christ was physically born, the Prophet Isaiah wrote as He was moved by the Holy Spirit sharing how at that time God's people had a disregard for the law of God. They still worshiped God, but their hearts were not near Him at all. They had grown cold and indifferent to what God demanded, and as a result God's judgment was told. Isaiah shared in the 59th chapter, 14th verse, "And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." Today in America, we can see the same thing happening! God's people have grown cold, the truth of His word has been for the most part changed by many of those in leadership positions in religious organizations. There is a warning to those that do not heed the Word of God, and add too or change what it says! For example, the church of just a few years ago would never stand for what we see today. We think of things like the stand against alcohol, abortion, and same sex marriage! Yes, indeed, once again, Truth is fallen in the street!
Friends, we have read the Book, we know the ending! We have been told the time was coming when they would not endure sound doctrine, and there would be a falling away! It is now upon us! The future is in God's hands, meanwhile we continue to preach and teach His Word! We will not compromise it, but share it as it is written! Our prayer is for our families and friends to come to a close relationship with Christ! We will work until Jesus comes! As our good friend Bob Whitchurch says, "Look up!" Our redemption draweth nigh!"
