Weekend Ministry Opportunities

I have three ministry opportunities this weekend and I would appreciate your prayers.

Aunt Rosie & James
Saturday afternoon I will preach the funeral service of my 100-year-old great-aunt, Rosie Mott.  She passed away on Tuesday at Baya Pointe Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Lake City, Florida, where she had lived since 2003.  She had lived most of her adult life on Nolan Street in Jacksonville.  Aunt Rosie was the 11th of 14 children of the late William P. and Virginia (Hurst) Mikell, a pioneer family of the Possum Trot area of Olustee.  She was preceded in death by her husband Lester Mott, a son William 'Buck' Mott, and all of her siblings.  My grandmother, Pearl Mikell Croft, was one of her sisters. She is survived by 19 nieces and nephews, and a host of great nieces and nephews.

Aunt Rosie turned 100 on February 5, 2011 and we held a celebration at Baya Pointe for family and friends.  Photos from the event can be viewed in the gallery "Aunt Rosie's 100th Birthday".  I posted two articles about her 100 years on this site in February.  One of them was titled "A Long Life" and the other was "100 Years = A Long Time".

The funeral will be a graveside service at Riverside Memorial Park, 7242 Normandy Blvd. in Jacksonville.  The service will begin at 2pm.  Please pray for our family during this time of loss.

Airline Baptist
On Sunday, I will be making my first trip to Airline Baptist Church to preach in supply for Pastor Chip Parker.  The morning service begins at 10:30am.  The church is located at 164 NE CR 354 in Mayo, Florida.  For more information or directions call (386) 294-2676.

After the service at Airline Baptist, I will drive back to Baker County to preach an evening service.

I will be preaching in supply for Pastor Randy Williams at First Baptist Church of Glen St. Mary, Florida at 6pm. The church is located at 9846 George Taber Boulevard in Glen St. Mary, FL  32040.  For more information or directions call (904) 259-6977.
 
As you can see, I will truly be a "travelling" evangelist this weekend.  I will certainly appreciate your prayers as I prepare for these services and for my travel.

Happy Columbus Day

First Landing of Columbus on the Shores of the New World, after the painting by Discoro Téofilo de la Puebla.
 Many countries in the New World and elsewhere celebrate the anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the Americas, which occurred on October 12, 1492, as an official holiday. The event is celebrated as Columbus Day in the United States, as Día de la Raza in many countries in Latin America, as Discovery Day in the Bahamas, as Día de la Hispanidad and Fiesta Nacional in Spain and as Día de las Américas (Day of the Americas) in Uruguay. These holidays have been celebrated unofficially since the late 18th century, and officially in various areas since the early 20th century.

One Of The Busiest Weeks Ever

As you may have noticed no new posts were added to this blog for several days last week.  To be honest it was a combination of "busy" and "fatigue" that kept me out of "blog mode" for a week.

New Oak Grove Baptist
The morning after the Baker County Sesquicentennial Celebration on Saturday, September 24th, I began preaching revival services at New Oak Grove Baptist Church near Alachua, Florida.  The services concluded Wednesday night.  I really enjoyed ministering with my good friend Pastor Terry Elixson.  Terry also serves on the JCEA Board of Directors.  If you live in the area and are searching for a church home, the folks at New Oak Grove Baptist will make you feel right at home.  The church is located at 18100 NW 262nd Ave. in Alachua, Florida.  For more information or directions call  (386) 462-3390.

The same Sunday the New Oak Grove services got underway, one of my third-cousins, Kenneth Owen of Olustee, passed away after a nine-month fight with cancer.  He was 66 years old.  I was honored to preach his funeral service on the following Friday morning. On Monday of that same week I received word that one of my first-cousins, Lamar Crosby of Jacksonville, had passed away unexpectedly at age 50.  I hope you will remember both of these families in your prayers.

Island Grove Baptist
Following Kenneth's funeral on Friday, I made my first trip to Island Grove Baptist Church to begin revival services that evening.  The services continued through this past Sunday night.  We had good attendance at each service and I enjoyed meeting Pastor Steve Matchett and making new friends.  Island Grove is located about 10 miles south of Hawthorne, Florida on Highway 301.  If you live in this area and are looking for a church home, visit with the folks at Island Grove Baptist Church.  The church is located at 20905 SE 219th Ave. in Island Grove, Florida.  For more information or directions call (352) 317-5525.

As you can see I had an extensive week of ministry opportunities and travel.  I did get a little rest yesterday, but spent some time making contact with Baker County churches and individuals about an issue to be discussed at a county commission meeting this afternoon.  The meeting will feature a discussion on an election referendum question for voters on allowing alcohol sales on Sunday in our county.  I hope to address the commission opposing this issue.

This week I am also preparing to preach a revival service on Friday night at Oak Grove Baptist Church north of Lake City and a pastor appreciation service on Sunday at Cedar Creek Church in Sanderson, Florida.  I hope to squeeze-in time to work on the design of a church website and a nursing home visit.

Maybe I'll rest next week??
