On a serious note the morning stroll was prayerfully productive ..Chris , Phil & I were able to petition the throne with much liberty
Phil was a little anxious whilst reading one of Lee's recreational magazines !!!
Huckleberry Lee ...poor lad cant afford shoes :-)
For morning service we attended Brook Hills and heard Dr David Platt speak . All of us were humbled under the word . If you get a chance go to their web site and Listen to him speak ..For a 29 year old man he speaks with much empowerment ..This is a photo of David in action ...the church is huge ..they have three services with over 6000 people attending . Praise God
A couple of small lemonades... the drinks i mean not Wes & Phil :-)
I all got a little too much for Wyatt our resident cowboy !We visited down town Birmingham . Some of the chaps went to the civil rights museum. Martin Luther King was imprisoned in Birmingham in the 1960'sIn the evening we went to Briarwood and heard an excellent sermon preached by Harry Reader . Harry had been teaching at the conference all week . Again this is another busy church , with an average Sunday congregation of over 4000 folk
After Evening service we met up with Carolyn , Harry and Tom ( above Photo) to discuss the forthcoming Embers to a Flame conference in the UK in November . I took a picture of Tom because he looks remarkably like the late great William Towers of Wem ...Phil and I were shocked as to how similar he is to Will .

The First picture is one taken on the coach on the way down to London. We met a loveley lady called Mary and I promised I would put her picture up on the internet ..
The second picture is the one of the boys on tour . This was taken at Charlotte airport which I think is in North Carolina.
This is Jamie the mad Scotsman ...at this stage in our travels we were becoming a little delirious ..or rather jamie was :-)Our host family in Birmingham have a Harley , so Phil is in his element ..He struggled to put his feet on the floor though :-)This is the home of the Trinkle family ...and our wonderful hosts Lee& Catherine Trinkle . They truly know how to show Christian hospitality .Breakfast at one of the local restaurants... The Brits are in town Jamie pretending he was full ..he ate six meals the day before ...they are made of strong stuff those Scottish boys !!This was my snack of a breakfast !!!The Conferance Venue at the Church ...they have 4000 members at this Church Phil , as usual , managed to get himself in front of the camera ..what you cant see is that they had to stand him on a box :-)....Below is the seminar room ..just to prove we are working :-)So far its been a great experience , however I am absoluteley cream crackered . The Jet lag is kicking in big time ...more Photo's tomorrow ... Missing everyone back at home .
