The Countdown Begins!


Jesus On The Main Line, Hilarity With The Gaither Vocal Band

It’s officially Tulsa Week and the countdown begins until 5:00 a.m. Wednesday morning when several of us will climb into the Central Church of Christ van and make the 13 hour drive to Tulsa, Oklahoma. My friend Gary Henderson is the first one who talked me into making the trek West and I’m soooo glad he did. What year was that anyway? I think it was about 1985 or 1986. I believe I have only missed attending Tulsa one year since then. This year I find myself on the program, and I couldn’t be more excited (read: frightened & nervous!). Thankfully I speak first thing Thursday morning and then I can relax and enjoy the program. I hope to have at least ten people in my class. For all of you who are going to hear Don McLaughlin, I hear that his message will be so good you’ll want to buy the CD anyway. So, just buy his CD and listen to him later. Plus I may have free stuff to give away and celebrity guest appearances. I have heard unconfirmed rumors that the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders will line the stage to welcome me. Also, that Third Day will make their Tulsa debut, I understand, as a warm up for my message.  Bob Barker will be there with a Plinko board, someone said. It appears that Oprah has a book taped underneath every seat as well. You know, not everything that I hear is true, but wouldn’t you be disappointed if you missed out on the celebration?

We had a good visit with my parents. We had lunch at The New Orleans Seafood & Hamburger Company. After that we all went to see the Wild Hogs movie. We had a lot of laughs together and enjoyed the movie so much.

Today we have folks from Kansas and Iowa showing up to work. Isn’t that awesome? They have sacrificed so much and given of themselves to be here to work and serve others for nothing in return.

Today Dan Cooper starts a series on Friendship Evangelism at the Gautier Church of Christ. I hope to attend some of that.

Thanks for reading! Hope your Sunday is awesome. I would love to hear about it.
