Christian vs. Shoe Salesman

What a GREAT revival we had at Ridglea Baptist in Moss Point, MS! The music was great, the preaching was great, the fellowship was great, all because the presence of the Holy Spirit was great. We left this revival charged up and ready for the rest of the revival season.

During the revival, Bro. Greg Johnston shared this story with us . . .

A shoe salesman was sent to Africa, but after a week, he called his company and said, "Bring me home, they don't wear shoes here." The shoe company brought him home, and sent a second salesman. After a week, he called the company and said, "Send me all the shoes you've got, there are prospects everywhere!"

If we have a burden for the lost to be saved, we will find that there are prospects everywhere!

Next On Our Calendar: Thur. evening (3/29/07), Tammie will be speaking to the women of Derby Baptist, Poplarville, MS, about the Girlfriends In Christ ministry and the importance of prayer. Sunday (4/1/07), Benjy will be preaching at Oak Hill Baptist in Poplarville, MS, and he'll be leading the revival music Mon. through Wed. evening at Central Baptist in McNeil, MS. Come join us if you can!

A Question Mark Christian?

It's unusual to start a revival on Thursday and end on Sunday, but that's what Southside Baptist did last week, and I think we saw a larger, more receptive crowd on Sunday because of the building enthusiasm.

Sunday evening they had a fish fry and derby car race for the whole church. Someone loaned McKenzie a derby racer so she could participate, and she had a GREAT time with it. She said, "Mom, I raced with a rental!"

"I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life," (1 John 5:13).

Bro. Steve Jackson used this verse to speak to us about assurance. He said, "God didn't save us to be a question-mark Christian; He saved us to be an exclamation-mark Christian!"

If you aren't certain of your salvation, read through 1 John to see what John wrote "so that you may know."

Kicking Off the New Season

The 2007 spring revival season is upon us, and we're kicking it off with back-to-back revivals!

We'll be traveling to Southside Baptist Church in Lucedale, MS, this week. Southside is Tammie's home church, so we're really looking forward to a time of sweet fellowship with our family and friends. This revival starts Thurs. and finishes up Sunday morning. If you're in the area, come by and worship with us. Benjy will be leading the music service and Bro. Steve Jackson will be delivering the messages. The services start at 7:00pm.

Sunday evening we'll travel to Moss Point, MS, to be in revival with Ridglea Heights Baptist Church. The revival services at Ridglea will run through Wed. night. Benjy will be leading the music service there, as well, and Bro. Greg Johnston will be delivering the messages. Check their website for more information and directions to the church.

We're looking forward to the new revival season and the new opportunities God will put before us. Please remember to pray for our safety as we travel this year. Benjy still works full-time at the Stennis Space Center, so we be spending a lot of time roads.

We'll see you in church!
Benjy, Tammie, and McKenzie
