64 Years

Last Sunday we were at our home church in Temple, Calvary Baptist Church. There was singing and preaching and eating in the morning and then there was Singing and preaching and Testimonies of what the church has meant to the people over the years in the afternoon. What a wonderful time. I am thankful that we were able to go and that our church has been such a blessing over the years with only 3 preachers in all of that time.

Bro. Travino sang a great song!

Zoi made a cake and the fondant icing was homemade also. Wish I could have eaten it but I am off sugar. :(

Our Pastor Bro. Rick Reed.

He's gettin a little excited in Sunday School. He can't help it, he's got a great big God!

New twins!

setting up!

Preacher's wife from a sister church. Mrs. Michelle.

Bro. McCoy gave a short sermon! Still doing his best for the Lord! Amen!

My good friend Michelle giving testimony of what the church has meant to her and her family. Praise The Lord!

Bro. Harrod giving testimony of how God brought us to the church.

God is Good!

Mrs. Willy has been a true friend to this singinary!

These two ladies have been with the church I think the whole 64 years. Amazing!!!

 The kids have been doing odd jobs to earn money for church camp over in Star, Texas. We are still battling allergies which is not good on the voices. Lately Bro. Harrod has been adding insulation to our van to get it cooler. We are praying that it really helps because our a.c. just can't keep up with this hot weather and its only going to get worse. We are so happy with our sound systems quality and are working on putting together an album. Pray we can get the time to work more on that.

Pray for us we need your prayers. The Devil works on us full time and we need God's protection and his power to fight off the Devil. Pray for direction as Bro. Harrod endeavors to do as the Lord wants him with our family. Thank you and God Bless!

Bertram Texas

This past Sunday we were invited to go sing at Iglesia Bautista Emanuel or Emanuel Baptist Church a bilingual church in our area. We drove over early to set up and soon after a pouring rain followed us. The service went great and we met some new friends as well as met up with some old friends.

After service we enjoyed some wonderful Mexican food made by the sweet ladies there. One of the ladies had to leave because she was very ill. Please pray for Sister Sonia who has been having dialysis and complications with that. She makes the best charro beans that I have tasted in a long time.

During the storm the church had a lot of leaks and their steeple blew off during a storm as well. So pray for the Pastor Bro. Jeffery Garner and the church family there as they make repairs and the cost that is involved in all of that. May God's work go on and the church prosper in the Lord!

This lady told me that her family also sang together. 

After we sang at the church in Bertram we were scheduled to go and sing at the Bertram Nursing Home. This was our first time getting to sing there and we had a great time singing and getting to know some of the residents there.

Thank you for reading our blog and caring enough to pray for us during your day! Please continue to lift up Zena who is having a rough time with a cough she needs to get over this. Allergies in our family are just a pain for sure when we are trying to sing. God knew they would come and he knows how to heal them up. I'm personally praying for the season's to change that always helps with he allergies. Thank you for the prayers!

Lampasas Texas

Sunday was Mother's Day and we were scheduled to sing and preach at Calvary Baptist in Lampasas, Texas. We loaded up early and headed off to the church to set up and use our new microphones in church for the first time. God really blessed and the microphones had no problems this time. Another sweet blessing from the Lord was Bro. Harrod's mother Donnace and my Father in Law Joel joining us for church. We sang all through Sunday School and Bro. Harrod preached a great Mother's Day sermon about the character qualities of Mary.


After services we were invited to stay for lunch and fellowship. They served up a great lunch and we enjoyed getting to know several of the members who treated us like family or better. Everyone was super nice and helpful getting the equipment put away. God was moving in the service and after to encourage the saints. They wanted us to come back and we hope to return at least by next year.

That evening we actually got to get some rest between services back at the house and then we traveled to Llano, Texas to hear the Crows sing and preach. They were long time friend's of my Mom and Dad and of course that made me think more of my Mom on mother's day but it was a great time of spiritual feeding and fellowship after services. We love them so much. Pray for Bro. Crow as he has had a stroke in his eye and needs God's healing touch.

Here are some more pictures from this Sunday. Pray for us as we continue to try to follow Christ in the ministry.

A lady I met that had the same name as my Mother.

The Woman with the most children 11 children.

An old friend from childhood.

Mrs. Lane a sweet woman of God!

She wanted the twins to come over and talk to her.

 A long time friend of the family!

Jonesborough Texas

This past Sunday we were scheduled at Evergreen Baptist Church with Pastor Johnathon McCullough his wife Jenifer and two of their children. We love their building and we were trying out our new sound system for the first time! The mikes still didn't work correctly so we just used our old ones. The company that we got them from have since sent us some more to switch them out with pray that they work we just received them today.

Bro. Harrod gave a great sermon on Ruth and Naomi and we enjoyed a beautiful song from one of the sweet ladies of the church. After services we were glad to hear that there was dinner on the grounds prepared and the food and fellowship was wonderful.

Bro. Harrod made a sound system case on wheels and it was nice to use that for the first time as well. It makes packing up a whole lot more efficient. Pray for Bro. Harrods as he prepares to preach a revival in October that he would have the messages that God wants him to have and that souls will be effected for Christ and His work!

Please continue to pray for more churches to pick us up for support so that we can be full time and for our safe travels and well being (many of us are suffering from bad seasonal allergies and sinus issues) as well as for souls to be encouraged and people to be saved!

We are also praying for a enclosed equipment trailer.  Bro. Harrod is working on replacing our van seats so that we can ride more comfortably. My Dad had some old van seats that we are going to be able to put to work in the ministry!

Thank you Lord for how you provide for our every need!
