Day 4 ..The Lords Day ...Hallelujah

"Tell me then Chris what do you think of the film Broke Back Mountain :-)"The day began with an early morning stroll ...A prayer walk ... Poor Phil he desperately wanted to be in the shot ..we offered to put him on a box but he politely declined .

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

Lunch at Loyd's ...The waitress Leanne took a shine to my English accent i got extra chips :-)

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 .
Its been a good day today ...the Lord really touched all of our hearts and challenged us ..So look out England here we come .....
Message to Gill & the kids ...i love you all and miss you terribly ...see you all soon 831 xx
