Revive This Nation; FBC Nixon, TX Day 1-2 #RTN12 @SWBTS

Well, as most of you probably know Kristen and I committed to preach a Spring Break Revival this year at a lovely Church in Nixon, TX.

We left Saturday morning to travel to Nixon and get settled in with our prayer warriors Nita and Sandra.

Kristen loved her Breakfast for Lunch from Cracker Barrel.

After a few hours and a few stops we arrived in Nixon. This wonderful small town is full of history and loving people.

With a population between 2,000 and 2,500, Nixon is what you would expect from a small Texas town .

Once in town, we drove around a little before meeting with Pastor Michael Linton and his wife Etta. We then went out to dinner and settled in for the night in anticipation for a great morning at FBC Nixon.

Sunday morning we arose to the thunder storms rolling  through the city and the excitement for God to move in the hearts of His people. Immediately upon entering the Church we where welcomed with open arms. Everyone here at the church is very eager to serve and love one another. Kristen and I are truly encouraged by that.

In the morning service I was able to preach through the first four verses of 1John (1:1-4) and everything went great. The church had a very nice lunch fixed for the congregation after and we stayed into the afternoon to fellowship with the members.

The evening service was good as well. I was able to preach through 1John 1:5-2:7 and the Spirit was moving. After the service, Pastor Michael and I were able to pray for the deacons and the deacons were able to pray for the congregation. The congregation then prayed for their leadership. It was completely brought on in the moment and was exciting to see how God was leading. I truly believe that God is preparing the members of this church to make a big impact on His Kingdom.

Please keep the church, the community and myself in your prayers. We have 3 more services over the next 3 days.

I will try to keep this updated every evening but wifi service is not just a Starbucks away. So I will update this as I can.
