  • I am in San Antonio to preach the Baptist Ministers Union’s annual citywide revival. And I am really enjoying this meeting. Citywide revivals are not what they used to be – for many reasons. But this meeting has been special. The day and night services have been well attended, with extra seats being place in the aisles. And the congregations seem to be ready for worship and eager to receive the word in every service.

    Pastor Dennis Jones of the Gethsemane Baptist Church in Houston is my preaching partner this week. This is his third consecutive year doing this meeting. So the city is familiar with his preaching. And there has been a sense of great anticipation each time he has preached. It has been a joy to get to know him and fellowship with him.

    But I am out of gas!!! I rarely do five-day meetings. So my mind thinks it is time to go home, even though I have two more messages to preach. Likewise, there are both day and evening services. And it’s a rotating preaching schedule – I preached last night and will preach this morning, but won’t preach again until tomorrow night. I am a little tired now. But I am looking forward to these final messages. The Lord has blessed this meeting in a great way. I cannot begin to describe it. And I cannot wait to see what the Lord is going to do in these final services. Keep us in your prayers.
