EIGHT WEEKS ON THE SAWDUST TRAIL
Just returned from 8 good weeks on the ole Sawdust Trail. Services in 9 churches and one Christian school,that kept Brenda and me busy. Great meetings with some Great Men of God. In NY with Pastors Paul Allen and Gary Nutt in PA with more of God's Good Men; John Traxler, Fred Helmick, Dave Foote (I seem to know him from somewhere), Charlie Hicks, Mike Exkra, Trevor Brubaker, Audy Seymour (School) and last but not least Tim Shivler. YOUR PRAYERS WERE APPRECIATED...

77 AND STILL GOING...
I tried to turn that 77 around but it still said the same. While in meeting with Bro. Charlie Hicks in Shade Gap,PA, My body turned 77. The good people of that Church and that area (near where I pastored for 25 years) had a party for me after the service on Friday night. Many, MANY, old friends. I do appreciate them and the many gifts given to me. I like those pictures of the presidents. Also on this trip Brenda turned 70 and the kind folks of Mt. Valley Bible Church had a meal and a beautiful Birthday cake for her (we finished the cake in NC and my son John's).

VBS 2011...
If you plan to have the Foote Evangelistic Team for VBS next Summer. Please contact John Foote Phone 336-813-5083 or e-mail DeweyDaisy@yahoo.com. A power packed program with puppets, clowns, vent figures, action songs, gospel illustrations, and MUCH MORE.

ABOUT MY HEALTH...

FROM THE OLE SAWDUST TRAIL.....

Just returned from a "whirl wind" trip to Alaska and back. I think my Grandson Bryan and I set a new record from Palmer Alaska to my house in less than six days. This was just after Brenda and I returned from meetings in PA where we saw God's Good Blessings. One young lady came to be saved before I could start the invitation, another teen pushed his way out to come and get saved and a man in his 60s almost ran down the isle to get saved. GOD IS ANSWERING YOUR PRAYERS FOR US.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

December 1, 2009

May God's Richest Blessings be on you and your family in 2010
God crowned the old year with His Blessings on the Foote Evangelistic Team. From Camp Meeting to Alaska meetings to Spring Revivals to a Summer packed with VBS programs to Fall Revivals and Snowed out Christmas Programs...God's Good Blessings were upon us.
LOOKING AHEAD. The Spring and Fall schedules are skinny, but the Summer is Filled with VBS programs and Deaf Camp. Prayer is needed to fill the holes in my schedule.
VAN REPORT. The Van is running great, taking us over the miles to meetings both North and South. A BIG THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE A PART IN KEEPING US ON THE ROAD. One Church send a half payment each month and some send half payment once a year. Some sent a one time payment. To be honest we could use two more churches to send a half payment once a year. Or if 10 churches would put us in theirmissionary budget for 30 0r 50 dollars a month it would keep the van rolling after souls and REVIVAL. One thing YOU can do for us is to PRAY THAT GOD WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPLY OUR NEEDS
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND GIVE YOU A GREAT YEAR IN HIS SERVICE,

Evangelist Leon Foote

GREETINGS FROM THE OLE SAWDUST TRAIL...

posted January 1, 2009

It is hard to believe that 2008 is gone, many opportunities lost, many blessings received. Thank God for what and how He used our team in 08.

I pray that God will give you many opportunities and many blessings in '09.

OUR TEAM LOOKING AT '09

The New Year is looking good.

My Grandson Bryan and I will be in PA and NY for the Ole Time Southern Camp Meetings in the North.

Pastors Harven, Mallonee, McClintock, Hicks and Leatherman in that order.
Services beginning at 3 o'clock each afternoon and 7 each evening.

VAN REPORT

The new van is a blessing from God and many of you. It is still running great, I am amazed at all the gadgets it has on it, still learning how to use all of them.

Some gave a one time gift and that has helped to make the payments on time. One church gives a half payment each month and some a half payment once a year ($300) and one a full payment once a year. That is a BIG help. Ten churches have commited to a payment or half, we could use two more churches to make a half payment one time each year, if the Lord should lead it would be a blessing and help to our ministry.

Open Time in 2009

After our trip to PA, Bryan and I will be in Alaska for all of February and March and part of April.

The third week of April is open for ole time revival.

The Summer VBS programs look good. John, Monica and Abby (age 4 then), will be with me for Puppets, clowns, etc. This year I will be teaching many of the Parables Jesus taught.

I do have a couple of weeks open for VBS June 7-12 and June 28 - July 2 or 3 (this one should be in PA).

I COULD TAKE A COUPLE OF MEETINGS IN THE MONTH OF MAY

A BIG THANKS...

As we close out 2008, I want to give a BIG THANKS.

To the many friends of the "OLE SAWDUST TRAIL"

  1. Thanks for your friendship, many new and ole friends all across the fruited plains.
  2. Thanks for your prayers. Maybe in Heaven I will see how your prayers have kept this 75 year old preacher going.
  3. Thanks for your support as Paul said about one of his churches, I can say about many of you you gave, once and again, that helps us pay our bills and keep us on the Trail of Souls.

LET ME SAY ONCE AGAIN, GOD BLESS YOU AND GIVE YOU A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR...

Your friend,

Leon Foote
