Well, we are on the road again after a great Christmas Eve at Way Of Faith in Virginia. We are Florida bound and looking forward to an awesome service in Fort Myers on Sunday!
On behalf of Pamela, Lacy, Pam, Marilyn, myself and all of us here at Final Harvest we want to say Merry Christmas! May your day be filled with the joy, gladness and hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ, who came to this earth as a Baby and was crucified for each one of our sins.
Many of you know that I am the host of the Southern Gospel Music Forum Radio Program. Our Christmas Show is a very special program this year. It was co-hosted by Pamela Warren of Final Harvest and is a three hour program featuring Christmas Music and some special memories and guests.
The program will be airing online on http://www.wvsgradio.com on December 24th and December 25th. It will air on the 24th at 2:00 pm eastern time and it will air on the 25th at 6:00 am eastern time and 2:00 pm. Be sure to tune in if you have a chance!
Final Harvest is working on a Christmas CD that is due out in the Fall of 2015. However, for just a few weeks we are making a pre-release available of the seven songs we have recorded so far available for purchase at one of our concerts! Check out our schedule as we head to Virginia, Florida and North Carolina over the next few weeks and make plans to come out and see Final Harvest and then you can pick up one of Christmas Pre-Releases and enjoy some of the songs early!
Of course, we all know that Christmas is about celebrating the Birth of our Lord Jesus Christ! However, as has become the custom of our society, we often purchase gifts for those we care about here on this earth. As a Christian, I have always found this tradition a little odd but my parents always told me that we give gifts to each other to celebrate the ultimate gift that was given to us by our Heavenly Father. That is, of course, His Son, who was sent to die for our sins!
Now, as humans, who does not love to receive a gift? I know I do! Well, Pamela Warren, who sings with Final Harvest, received a pretty cool gift from her sister, Cindy! Now, you might ask why she did not wrap it up and give it to her on Christmas! Well, the photo below will explain it all!
Oh yes, he was a little hard to wrap!!!! He is a 2 and 1/2 pound mini-dachshund! He will be joining Final Harvest on the upcoming tour, along with Weenie (the other dog owned by Pamela)! We are also trying to come up with a suitable name for the new addition to the Final Harvest family. If you have any suggestions, email me at email@example.com.
So, the gift giving has begun! The decorating has begun! The baking will soon begin! The tour is being planned and Christmas is right around the corner! We are looking forward to it and look forward to seeing you all soon!
Well, this is Scott Evans of the Southern Gospel Music Forum! I am also a member of the Board of Directors of Final Harvest.
Our Christmas and Winter Tour is nearly here and yes, I will be joining Final Harvest for about 2/3 of their tour! During that time (and in the next couple of weeks leading up to it), I will be taking over this blog and giving you all sorts of thoughts, insights, photos, etc.
I will post more info later but I just wanted to say hello and God Bless!
We’ve seen some amazing sights of God’s handiwork on our tour.
However, even more amazing is what He has done in the hearts of the people to whom we have ministered. It’s very humbling to see how God uses hearts yielded to His calling and just reels in the fish as we throw out the Gospel line of salvation.
How do you describe encountering the presence of the Lord and watching lives being changed by His presence? We have been able to lead many in a prayer of salvation. Today there was a lady that said that she was in horrific pain when she arrived for the concert, and as soon as the the music began and the message of Jesus was proclaimed, the pain was gone! After the concert she pulled us over to exclaim that the Lord touched her and healed her!! We have been able to give bibles to a church that has not had a pastor for 2 years on account of not being able to financially support a pastor. They have an average of 12 inches of rain each year, and this year they have only had 2 inches. Bob and Judy Davis have had to sell their cows because the grass won’t grow to feed their livestock. For the past 3 nights, miraculously we have had some drizzling rain which is huge for them!! We’ve been able to pray with folks that have had requests and witnessed the Lord send encouragement as the tears fell down. We are still in Gallup… Pastor Scott Penrod stood up this past Sunday after the final song “I Bowed On My Knees and Cried Holy” and said “Revival Has Come”!!! The people here are under such hardship with the drought, we are watching them be encouraged and built up in faith and the love of Jesus Christ! Each time we have sung, there is no doubt that it has been a divine appointment.
2200 miles down… 360 miles left till we make our deadline in Bloomfield, New Mexico!! Pam Warren has demonstrated amazing stamina and glorious grace from the Lord to accomplish so much in 2 and a half days!! We spotted our first deadly creature on the trip… the notorious Black Widow spider. They love to make webs in the sewer lines. We finally got to take a full shower after 3 days… PTL!! We’re all in good spirits watching the landscape change drastically with buttes, mesas and hugs windmills. The “big sky” truly is BIG!! Looking forward to everything the Lord wants to accomplish on this trip!!!
Today is day three of pushing forward. We have been traveling 16-18 hours a day with the major burden for driving on Pam. The concert in York was wonderful. We met many fine people. We had a wonderful lunch with Marilyn and Pam’s family. A wonderful way to begin.
So we have traveled through PA, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois MO, Kansas, OOOOOklhoma (where the wind WAS sweeping down the plains) Texas and now we are entering New Mexico. Red soil, buttes and mesas and sky that stretches for miles.
Safe,We have stayed in Walmart parking lots and truck stops. Yesterday the woman told me to “back up our rig” over there.
“For, “All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word that was preached to you.”
