God’s Blessings

It’s a beautiful Thursday morning, the sun is shining, birds are singing and the trees display a fall wardrobe of oranges, reds and yellows, life is good. The phone rings, it’s Pastor Steve. I open my phone and answer the call, “Hello pastor what do you need?” Pastor says, “I was wondering if you might be able to join us for the day?” I reply, “Who is us?” Pastor says, “Me and a couple of others.” “Sure” I said. The This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is DSCF2152A-1024x764.jpgpastor’s reply leaves me wondering what we are doing. Pastor says, “I received a call yesterday from a friend who said he and his wife had some items they wanted to donate to The Just As I Am Cowboy Church, but we would have to come to pick them up.  I was wondering if you could help.” “Sure” I said. I grabbed my hat and jacket, jumped in my truck and head for the barn, the church. When I arrive at the barn, we divide into groups small enough to ride comfortably in the vehicles. Two trucks and one van form a line behind the pastor’s truck and head off to the items location. After a four hour journey we roll into a small quaint town, go down a longThis image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is DSCF2165A-1024x924.jpg narrow street and park in front of a small but very neatly kept house. A man comes out pushing a roller walker. There is a smile on his face that would light up the sky even in the black of night and a brightness in his eyes that says welcome to us all. A rather large calloused hand reaches for the pastor’s hand to welcome him and us to his home. “How are you doing?” the pastor says. The man replies, “I’m doing good and it sure is good to see you folks.”  After welcoming everyone, the gentleman says, “Come with me I’ll show you what I have.” We followed him to back of his home.  I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. There before us sat a 24 foot camping trailer, a 4 man pontoon boat and a 10 foot cargo trailer. I know a lot of people say God doesn’t work or even exist anymore but in my eyes here was proof that God does. The Just As I Am Cowboy Church had been praying for a trailer for the puppet ministry to use when they go to other churches to minister.

The 4 man pontoon boat will be a great addition for fishing and parades. We position our trucks, hook up the camping trailer, then the pontoon and then the cargo trailer. We all hug the gentleman, shake his hand and with tears in his and our eyes we precede on our long journey home. I have a new outlook on how God supplies our needs through the generosity of his children. Many may try to disprove Gods love for his people. For me, however, I believe.

Just As I Am Cowboy Church
Host Their 4th Annual Meat, Fish and Game Supper

The day began early, around 2:00 pm, for most everyone at the 4th annual Meat, Fish and Game Supper. I was busy taking pictures of everyone working together preparing for the evening festivities. My name is Gene Arnett and I lead the Fishers of Men Ministry in the Just As I Am Cowboy Church. The men who attend the Fishers of Men meetings are the ones who catch the fish for the fish fries held once a month during the spring and summer months of the year as well as the Meat, Fish and Game Supper. Leon arrives a few minutes later prepared to cook the fish for the evening. Leon Pease is the leader of Hunters for Christ Ministry in the Just As I Am Cowboy Church. Several of my family members arrive ready for the meal and the gifts to be handed out later that evening. The meal consisted of frog legs, crappie belly, onions and eggs, deer chili, deer meat loaf, macaroni and cheese, salads of all kinds as well as deserts that would satisfy the desire of any sweet tooth. The puppets started the evening with several songs and wrapped up with the Deer Hunter’s Prayer song. Break Forth followed with music that beckoned those who don’t know Christ as their personal savior to come to know him. Pastor Steve Miller introduced himself then spoke for a while about the ministries in the church and inviting those in attendance to come to know Christ and hopefully return next year. Then it’s  time to pass out the gifts. Each person received a ticket when they came in the door. The ticket had a number on the front and a place to write your name and address on the back. The duplicate tickets were put in a hat and drawled out one at a time. The gifts this year consisted of a crossbow, 243 rifle, catfish, bass, crappie and snagging rods, cast iron cookware, hunting vest, fishing gear and much more. The head count, as best could be determined, came to about 214 not counting the children. My sister Shirley Fendrick won the rifle. My nephew won the cast iron cookware and his daughter’s boyfriend won the meat slicer. The evening ended with the laughter of family and friends discussing their future meeting and teasing about the gifts they had won. Many have enquired about the next year Meat, Fish and Game supper. I assured them that it would fall on the last Saturday in September. We pray everyone had a good time and look forward to seeing you next year.
