Northrop: Crowd sought for tent revival

We have been excitedly talking about a first of its kind experience for our area.

For quite a while we have urgently sought a way to have an event of Christ Jesus which is sponsored by area Christians’ of multiple denominations and ethnic groups.

Finally it is about to take place. Laymen and pastors are joining together to make it possible.

It is called Mission Revive America and is coming to a large tent meeting just South of the Andalusia elementary School on the corner of Hwy. 29 and Hwy 55 which is the Southern By-pass. Each evening at 6:30 p.m. from Sept 11th thru Sept. 14th there will be beloved music and the worship of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

We are blessed to have a superb speaker whose name is Bo Shedd. Bo is quite a character and has an incredible story. With his sense of humor and outgoing personality he has no trouble relating to young folks. When he was a football star in high school in Alabama he was in an automobile accident and was almost killed. He lost his leg in that accident but he saw the light. And he has spent all of his years since spreading that light to anyone who will listen. And he is a gifted communicator. His “America’s Too Young to Die” program — covering alcohol and drug issues, teen suicide, school violence and the need to make positive choices — has been presented in school assemblies everywhere.

We now give him a heartfelt welcome to Covington County. Thank God for sending him here.

You are urged to come. Please don’t miss this opportunity. Come on out on the very first evening. You won’t want to miss it.
