God truly blessed my Ministry and allowed me to travel to some amazing places in the month of May. God is so good and He gave me the opportunity to do real Kingdom work for the Body of Christ.
It began May 6th when I headed to West Limestone High School in Elkmont, AL to speak with their students.
God truly moved and they were a great group of students. Then the next night, May 7th, I spoke at the Men’s Event at Salem Springs Baptist Church. This event was powerful, and the men in this community are such a great group. Sunday, May 8th, I spoke for the congregation at Pastor Kevin’s church of Salem Springs Baptist Church. God really moved in this service as well. Everyone in the community was so kind and welcoming, and I had a blessed three days there.
I was honored to be able to speak at the Baccalaureate service at Ridgecrest Baptist Church on Sunday, May 15th. I love any opportunity that God gives me to speak with students about what God has for them if they align their actions with where they are going. Afterall, they are our future. Later that evening, I spoke at the evening service at Ridgecrest Baptist Church with Pastor Ray Jones. God moved in that service also and the entire day was just a blessing.
Friday, May 20th, I headed to Camp Boothe in Green Pond, AL to speak to the men at the invitation of Dan Pierce. This is such a beautiful place and they are doing a great work at Camp Boothe. The next day, May 21st, I drove to Tuscaloosa for the Annual Gene Stallings Reunion. However, this year Coach decided to turn it into a work day for the community, which was affected by the April 27th tornado. We got there that morning and all had breakfast together before going out to the community of Holt to do cleanup. What we saw was unimaginable; every house in that community we were working in was destroyed. The amazing part of the story is that there is a beautiful church in the community within walking distance of the neighborhood. Even though there were so many houses destroyed, the church remained untouched. We split into groups and began cleaning housing lots. It was such hard work, but your heart couldn’t help but go out to these people as we were cleaning up what was left of their homes, their pictures, their memories…their lives. We all pulled together and had a very successful day helping those in need, but that was just a small part and so much is still needed to help all of those affected by these storms.
