Monday and Tuesday night we had the privilege of hearing Pastor Billy Seats preach near our home town at a revival in Knoxville, TN at New Life Baptist Church with Pastor David McGinness, Jr. Needless to say, our hearts were full and renewed after some tremendous preaching and fellowshipping with friends!

But best of all, God answered our prayers and touched Trace’s heart during the Tuesday night message! After hearing Pastor Seat’s message “A living dog is better than a dead lion,” from Ecclesiastes 9:4,Trace went to the altar weeping and asked God to save him! The nights of doubt and fear ended as the burden of sin was lifted! We cried and rejoiced and praised God with this sweet church family for an hour after the service! What a joy to see God move!
