Campmeeting Day 4

WOW!!! That is all I can really say, tonight was awesome. Paul didn't preach because we had such a great service. Tonight was Red, White, and Blue night, so everyone wore those colors. The choir started the church service singing "God Bless America" and while they were singing my pastor went and got the American flag. Then he went to the microphone and asks this girl that will be leaving for Iraq tomorrow to come and hold the flag, while we said the Pledge of Allegiance. Then after this was done my pastor told of a young man from one of the churches who had already left for Iraq. I thought that was really nice what Pastor Darren did.

The singers started singing and the girl who is going to Iraq came to the altar and had people pray for her. Then some more people went to the altar. We were all having a good time and the singers were going to stop singing, but we told them to keep singing. So they did and more people went to the altar. We had one person saved, maybe more. We also had a young boy accept the call to preach. I knew something was going on with this young boy because he kept going to the altar, he was running from the call. But thank God he quit running tonight. We all had a great time.

I forgot to tell about what I gave Brian last night. I had heard Brian say one time while preaching that when he witnesses to people, he first finds out what they are interested in. So he said if they like Nascar then they talk about Jeff Gordon or how much he does not like Jeff Gordon. But the funniest thing is Brian knows nothing about Nascar. So last night I wrote out stats about my favorite driver Tony Stewart and I gave them to him. I told him that most people don't like my driver. Then he looked down at the paper and he said, "I like this guy, because people say I look like him." I looked at Brian and I could not believe I had not noticed it before. I sort of felt stupid giving him the stats, but after I gave them to him, I was glad because he seemed truly excited about me giving them to him.

Tomorrow night (I mean tonight) Cal Ray Evans will preach. Unless we have another service like we had tonight.

Wow, he does look like Tony Stewart! Even their face shape is almost exactly the same.
