SAWDUST TRAIL NOV. 2012

Nov 9, 2012

7 WEEKS ON THE SAWDUST TRAIL

A few years ago, after about 4 weeks in a row of VBS programs, my grand-daughter asked as she was getting into the car,"Where are we going?" I said to church. She replied,"We go to church, We go to church, We go to church!" Well for the last 7 weeks for Brenda and I, We go to Revival, We go to Revival, etc. God has Blessed each minute of it and I rejoice in His Blessings. Revival Meetings Sunday through Friday then travel on Saturday. I preached some sermons from the 1950s and God used them as He did then. We were with some of God's Good Preachers, Darren McClintock, Fred Helmick, Charlie Hicks, Paul Haasz, Tim Shivler, John Traxler, and Greg Harven. We ended the tour in Germanton, NC with a Great Sunday night service with Bro. Mark Smith.

RUMORS, RUMORS, RUMORS...

While Traveling in PA I ran into 3 rumors about me.

NO I did not break my foot,

NO I do not plan to retire in December,

and NO I am not 6 foot under the ground. I am still on the Sawdust Trail.

BIRTHDAYS...

ON Oct 14 I became 79 years old (That is getting old) Pastor Tim Shivler and his wife Julie pulled a big surprise on me. During the morning service two men brought down the aisle a BIG cake with 79 candles burning on it. It took all my wind to blow them out.

Then on Nov the 4 Brenda became 72 OOOPS maybe I should not have said that. Pastor Don Fellows and his wife Betty had a surprise for her. At the end of the morning service the preacher called her up front and sang "Happy Birthday" then brought a cake down the aisle for her (No candles burning). Then had a meal for her, and took a special offering for her.

A BIG THANKS TO BOTH OF THESE CHURCHES FOR their KINDNESS TO US! GOD BLESS Y'LL

LOOKING AHEAD BY A FOOTE...

IN December, Lord willing, we will have our "CHRISTMAS WITH THE PUPPETS" programs in North Carolina and Pennsylvania. There may be an opening for a school chapel. Contact John Foote at 336-813-5083

In January Southern Camp Meeting in the North. A revised Schedule will be sent later which will include a missionary commissioning service on Thursday, Jan 17th.In Feb. and March again, Lord Willing, we will be in Alaska for Ole Time Revivals. Pastor and Mrs. Ronnie Vice will be with me for two weeks and Joel and Melissa Berkheimer will join me after they leave. PRAYING FOR OLD TIME POWER THERE THEN.

OPEN TIME.

Brenda is still singing at age 72 and I am still preaching at age 79. At present we have open time in April and May of 2013 and 3 weeks open in the Fall of 2013.

John is handling all of the VBS programs; you can contact him about VBS. (336-813-5083)

But for Ole Time Revivals contact me.

Cell phone 770-337-0298 or

E-mail at oledocfoote@juno.com

CALL TO GLORY...

There are many good devotional booklets out there, but many churches are changing to CALL TO GLORY because it is written by Preachers using only the King James Bible with down to earth, everyday help for the readers.

SUMMER SAWDUST TRAIL...

Jun 4, 2012

GOD'S GOOD BLESSINGS IN MAY.

We had a good week of OLE TIME REVIVAL in Coudersport, PA with pastor Richard Keulhman, God blessed each night. We stayed in a cabin in the woods at God's Adventure Camp directed by Bro. Bruce Green. No TV, No Cell Phone service, NO Internet WHAT A GREAT WEEK. Brenda and I did have several one day or one night service ( her singing and me preaching) with South side Baptist in Mt. Airy, NC (Pastor away), Bro. Denny Mallonee in Beaver Springs, PA, Bro. Marty Montgomery in Roulette, PA, then with Bro. Art Lockard in Shelocta, PA. Next had a part in Jennifer Shawley's wedding, then we were with Bro. Doug Baker in the morning and Bro. Gary Anderson in the evening. Two great churches in Somerset County in Western, PA.

THANK YOU PASTORS FOR HAVING US.

VBS HERE WE COME READY OR NOT...

Something that never happens, we had one VBS that had to cancel, but we begin with Bro. Denny at Beaver Springs, Then with Bro. James West in McDonough, GA. After that off to South GA to be in our yearly VBS with Brother Ronnie Vice. The next week is awaiting confirmation. Then one Sunday in my home church, Canaan Baptist Church, Covington, GA. After that will be VBS with Brother Kenneth Heath in NC. The Deaf camp this year will be August 11-16 Looking for God's Blessing then.

OPEN TIME THAT NEEDS TO BE FILLED...

This Fall is looking Good. Brenda and I will be busy with 7 week of meetings in a row. BUT I still would like to fill a week the last of August and one week the second week in Sept. John will be contacting some of you about the Christmas With The Puppets program.

THAT BRINGS ME TO 2013...

Lord willing, I will be in Alaska in Feb. and March and the first of April. I need to fill my schedule the last of April and all of May. John will handle the VBS programs for 2013 BUT most of the Fall of 2013 is still open for Old Time Revival in your church by two Old Timers. I still preach the Old Time Religion. Call or E-Mail me about a meeting in your church.

ABOUT THE VAN...

Still running great with 116 Thousand miles on it. Just replace brakes and rotors... One more year of payments unless someone makes a BIG donation to the van fund. Still could use one church to take a half payment this year.

A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM...

Since the first of this year I have talked to 5 different Pastors in five different cities that are having problems in their church. It seems that our congregations have forgotten the office of the Pastor in the church. He is a man called of God (Heb. 5:4) A gift to the church (Eph. 4:11) and is in the hand of Jesus (Rev. chapter 1) He is told to take the oversight of the flock (I Peter 5:2) and the people are told to esteem them very highly in Love for their work's sake. (I Thess.5:13) The instructions on how to treat your pastor is found in Hebrews 13 verses 7, 17, and 24 (Watch that word OBEY.)

THATS HOW OLE DOC READS IT.

WELL, PLEASE keep us in prayer as we travel the highways of America preaching the Book, the Blood and the Blessed Hope. LET ME KNOW IF I CAN BE OF ANY HELP TO YOU IN YOUR MINISTRY.

AWAITING THE TRUMPET

Evangelist Leon Foote aka Ole Doc Foote

ON THE ROAD AGAIN

May 1, 2012

VAN HEADED NORTH...

This Friday, May 4, the van begins another trip North With Brenda and Me riding in it. Sunday, May 6, we will be at Southside Baptist Church in Mt. Airy, NC. Monday we plan to stop and see friends in Appomattox, VA, Tommy and Diane Myers. They have both been very sick and need prayers. Tuesday and Wednesday, Lord Willing, we will be in Beaver Springs, PA with Pastor Denny Mallonee at Faith Baptist Church. Gospel singers Joel and Melissa Berkheimer plan to join us in that meeting and then we will follow them home and be staying in a cabin near them while in Ole Time Revival at Calvary Baptist Church in Coudersport, PA. PLEASE KEEP US IN PRAYER, Pastor Kuehlman's wife is battling cancer. The cabin belongs to Brother Bruce Green and we appreciate the use of it for the week.

FLASH

One week open this Summer for VBS in the South. Call John Foote 336-813-5083

God Bless You,

ON THE SAWDUST TRAIL AGAIN

Mar 20, 2012

Last Sunday the 18th we had great services with Brother Ronnie Vice in Tifton,GA. It is always a joy to be with that great church, Grace Baptist Church.

This Thursday Brenda and I will hit the trail again heading North,(it seems my car is always heading North.) To be with my son David for a week of Ole Time Revival March 25-30 and then a little further North to Union City,PA to be with a good friend Trevor Brubaker April 1-6. Prayer appreciated for these meetings.

Then home for a wedding, my Grand daughter, Terri. She will tie the knot April 14th.

I have about 3 weeks open after that before the next meeting with Brother Richard Kuehlman in Coudersport, PA. If you need an old Preacher that has been on the trail going on 60 years let me know.

About the meeting with Brother Kuehlman. His wife has recently had serious cancer surgery and needs your prayers. They are God's people and doing a good work there in Coudersport. I have been in that church in the past and seen God's good blessings.

I am still having problems with my knee, but it has not stoped me. I plan, LORD WILLING, to preach till I drop, with God's Help and your prayers.

The van is still running good 110 Thousand miles on it. Another year and half and it will be paid for . We still could use a church to take a half payment for the month of May. The Lord will provide.

MAY GODS GOOD BLESSING BE YOURS

SAWDUST TRAIL JAN 2012

Jan 24, 2012

WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO ????

During December John, Monica, Abigail and I traveled with the "Christmas With The Puppets" mostly in PA. We had a great time giving the TRUE meaning of Christmas, using the puppets.

The week between Christmas and New Years some of the Foote family got together in Gatlinburg, TN and it was a lot of fun with the family. We watched the ball drop there in Gatlinburg, then home and off to...

Old Fashioned Southern Camp Meeting in the North. Some great Preaching by Donnie Pollard, Audy Seymour,Owen Held, John Leatherman, Dave Foote, Darren McClintock,George Alquist,Don Fellows, And God Blessed Singing and preaching by Jerry Smith, I also tried to preach some.

The dates for 2013 are Jan 14-18 and Jan 21-15 for the Old Time Southern Camp Meeting.

LOOKING AHEAD AT 2012...

I will be (Lord Willing) in PA some this Spring and would like some meetings in the South maybe in NC or GA. I need two meetings in March, two in April and two in May. If you would like an ole time preacher, preaching the old old story, please contact me. If not please pray that God will fill this time. I have preach in me that needs to get out. I would also be willing to stay in the North.

The Summer VBS programs are filling up fast if not already full. John is in charge of that part of the ministry.

The Fall looks good. I have one week open in Sept. and we could take Sun - Wed. the Thanksgiving week for a THANKS Revival.

VAN INFORMATION

The van is running well. Over 100 Thousand miles and still going for the Lord. Most of the van payments came in last year only a couple could not make it, but God supplied. good so far this year. Please Pray that It will keep rolling up and down the highways for our Lord.

A SCRIPTURE TO LOOK AT AND CONSIDER

Will you look at this verse and say what Isaiah said in Isa.6:8??

May God Bless You in your service for HIM.

CAMP MEETING REPORT

Jan 24, 2012

MAYBE THE BEST YET...

(at least I think so)

The "Old Fashioned Southern Camp Meeting in the North" was great this year.
I can't remember any better, (Maybe the Radiation).
The preaching was "out of this world" It came from God.
The singing was uplifting, the fellowship was great and the testimonies were encouraging.
THANKS to the churches who hosted the meetings, THANKS to the preachers who preached the WORD to us.

Mark these dates for 2013:

Jan 14-18
First Meeting
Jan 21-25
Second Meeting

I am praying and lining up speakers for next year. It is looking good.

THANKS to all who came and took part and THANKS to all who gave. You all had a part in making this a year BLESSED BY GOD.

God Bless WE'LL

CROSSED THE FINISH LINE

June 30, 2011

Evangelist Leon Foote

I remember the cheerleaders chanting when the game was almost over, "It's All Over! It's All Over!"
Today after I finished my 35th radiation treatment I got a certificate which says, "YOU DID IT" Awarded to J "Leon" Foote. Has completed the prescribed course of Radiation Theraphy with the highest degree of courage, determination, and good nature. We appreciate the confidence placed in us and the opportunity to serve you." Sealed by RC cancer center 6/30/11.

I go back on July 12 for a PSA test and answer more questions as I have been doing ever week. Then every 6 months another PSA test. If every thing worked as it should I should be cancer free by now. THAT IS ALL IN GOD'S HANDS ANYWAY.

I get tired in the afternoons but am still going strong, PLEASE keep praying. Back in the Saddle Again this week end. (THANK THE LORD)

I still could work in two REVIVAL MEETING this Fall and have TOO MUCH open time next Spring. E-Mail me about an OLD TIME REVIVAL BY AN OLD TIME PREACHER IN YOUR CHURCH.

God Bless You and THANKS FOR YOUR PRAYERS.

SO MANY HAVE ASKED

June 3, 2011

So many have asked about my treaments so I will give an up-date.

Today I finished my 16th. radiation treatment and have 19 to go. It is get up at 6:45 am each morning and leave for Conyers, GA (about 30 minute drive) lay on the table while a machine shoots 5 shots of radiation into me. That is Mon. - Fri. I have Sat. and Sun. off. My last treatment will be June 30 (looking for that day). The first of July I join my son John for VBS in Tifton, GA (Looking for that day too!) Then one day in my home church before heading to PA for VBS programs and Deaf camp in PA.

So far, I do not have a place to preach this Sunday but will be preaching both AM and PM on the 12th.
Praying for the last two Sundays in June for God to open a door of service.

I still have the last week of August and the first two week of Sept. open for OLE TIME REVIVAL. Call me about a meeting in your church. 770-337-0298

Your Friend
Leon Foote AKA Ole Doc Foote

PS. A SPECIAL THANKS to those who have sent offering to my ministry to help pay the bills since I am not travelling in Evangelism. I finished May in the black, Praise THE LORD.

MEDICAL REPORT, SAWDUST TRAIL

May 13, 2011

Evangelist Leon Foote

WELL - There are 2 down and 33 to go!

Today I had my second round of radiation. I have 33 treatments to go. Except for Sat. and Sun. it will be at 8:15 each morning until the last of June. Then it is the VBS trail of the Sawdust Trail. Grandson Joshua will take my place in June.

I will preach, Lord Willing, this Sunday at McDonough Baptist Tabernacle and then next Tuesday Joel, Barry and I will drive to South GA where I will have the Graduation sermon for Grace Christian School, with my friend Pastor Ronnie Vice. At present my next Scheduled Sunday is the second Sunday of June.(Pray that the open weeks will be filled as I want to preach.)

I feel backslidden if I am not preaching every night in Evangelism.

Please pray for my schedule for 2012 as I have open time for Ole Time Revivals from Feb. through May. GOD IS ABLE.

Many churches have been sending gifts that have helped pay the bills since I am not traveling and preaching. I feel like I am collecting unemployment. GOD IS SO GOOD.

Please keep Brenda and me in your prayers.

ITS SPRINGTIME IN GEORGIA, SEED PLANTING TIME

April 28, 2011

Evangelist Leon Foote

On Wednesday, (April 27th) I went to the Georgia Urology Surgery Center, and had 98 seeds planted in my Prostate...
The surgery was not bad. He said 20 seconds and you will be asleep. He did not know how fast I am, it only took 3 seconds! The worst part was getting ready.
Magnesium Citrate taste terrible and Fleet is no fun.
Today (Thursday) I went for a Post Op CT scan and every thing is FINE. I have one more appintment on May 10 and then began 7 weeks of Radiation, ending the last of June. I will miss VBS in June, but Grandson Joshua (Who graduates from Bible College this month) will take my place. THEN in July I get back on the SAWDUST TRAIL.

In April, May, and June I have had to stay close by and have not been able to travel in Evangelism. I do very much appreciate the churches in the area who have had me for a Sunday. Ronnie Rice, Gary Blalock, Don Fellows. And scheduled for a Sunday in May: Rick Spence, Randy Shaylor and James West. I still need Sundays May22, and 29 and also June 5, 19 and 26. Please pray that these will be filled. (All Wednesdays are still available for Brenda to sing and me to preach.) ALSO A BIG SHOUT OUT AND THANKS TO THE MANY FRIENDS WHO HAVE SENT AN OFFERING AS AN EVANGELIST WHO IS NOT OUT PREACHING REVIVALS HAS NO LOVE OFFERING. Some have sent once and again.
On Wednesday prayers went up to Heaven for this ole 77 year old preacher AND GOD STILL ANSWERS PRAYER, I sit here as proof of that!

After Deaf Camp in August, I get back on the SAWDUST TRAIL and have the last week of August open for a BACK TO SCHOOL REVIVAL. Then 2 weeks open in September, and could have meetings the first two weeks of November.

Open time that needs to be filled for ole time revivals in the spring and Fall of 2012. Brenda and I will be on the trail of souls. She will be singing and I will be putting 59 years of preaching in a week for you. E-mail me today about having a meeting in your church.

GOD BLESS YOU ONE AND ALL AND THANKS.

FEBRUARY ON THE SAWDUST TRAIL

January 29, 2011

Medical Report - THE DYE IS CAST

Many of you have called or e-mailed about my cancer, so here is what is happening....Feb. 8 I will go to the Rockdale Hospital for a Cat scan, bone scan and a CT scan. Today I had another PSA test and will know the results of that on Friday. I will return from Alaska on March 29 and will have the seed implant the first week in April. Then there is a 3 week wait and began 6 weeks of radiation. I am not looking forward to it but feel that is what the Lord would have me to do. PRAYER NEEDED.

CAMP MEETING REPORT

This year was one of the best, if not the best that we have ever had. In the two week I was in 49 meetings (counting the 3 Sundays) and we saw 7 salvation decisions and one young man called to preach. Plans are being made for 2012 for even greater Blessings.

REVIVAL MEETINGS REPORT

Lord Willing, I leave for Alaska on the 17th of this month. Bro. and Sister Ronnie Vice will join me for the first two weeks and Joel and Melissa Berkheimer Gospel singers, will be joining me at a later date. I will be there for 5 Revival Meetings and stay for one Sunday . I will be with Doug Farret, Ben Burtch, Stan Tucker, Walter Ballard, Buddy Miller and one day with Wes Hudson. PRAYER APPRECIATED

FUTURE... Lord Willing

I have had to cancel some meeting in April and Leave May open because of the treatments that I will be taking. John is in charge of the VBS schedule I plan to work with him in VBS this Summer and also with David in Deaf Camp. This Fall looks good. I do have open time the 3rd. week of Sept and open time in Nov. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE AN OLD TIME REVIVAL. Brenda will be with me in these meetings.

God Bless YOU all, I appreciate my friends

FROM THE SAWDUST TRAIL 2011

January 5, 2011

HAVE A GOD BLESSED NEW YEAR

PHYSICAL REPORT
Yes I do have cancer (no one likes that word).
Yesterday my family doctor (Christian) and my wife ganged up on me. The Oncologist that I went to wants me to have the seeds and radiation (Prostate cancer). I was thinking I only wanted the seeds, but yesterday my doctor told me he wants me to have the seeds and radiation and would you believe that my wife agreeded with him and even my son Joel said that he agreed.
So I will set a time to meet with a Radiation Oncologist after the Camp Meeting and plan to have the proceedure done in April. It will take 7 weeks of radiation 5 days a week. There goes my April meetings. I will be able to preach on Sundays here in the area but not travel. No meetings in May also. I DID NOT REALIZE THAT I HAD SO MANY FRIENDS. MANY PHONE CALLS AND E-MAILS ASKING ABOUT MY HEALTH. Thanks and please keep the prayers going up.

LOOKING BACK AT 2010
The lines fell in pleasant places ... GOD HAS BEEN GOOD TO THIS OLD PREACHER.
  1. 52 preaching services in the Spring
  2. 9 weeks of VBS in the Summer
  3. One Revival and Deaf Camp in August
  4. 68 preaching services in the Fall counting school chapels
  5. Puppet ministry with our team in 6 churches in December "CHRISTMAS WITH THE PUPPETS"

FINANCIAL REPORT
We have 7 churches and 2 individuals who support us each month as missionaries. Webster defines a missionary as one who is sent out to do religious work. We are sent out to America to reach the lost and Revive churches. I say thanks to our supporters and may their tribe increase.

VAN REPORT
The Van has over 80 thousand miles on it and is still going great. There are 9 churches that send half a payment once a year, two of those send a full payment and one church sends half a payment each month.
A Friend in Ohio sent a large sum for the Van Fund that was a BIG help. THANKS. FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS IT WOULD HELP IF 2 MORE CHURCHES WOULD TAKE A HALF PAYMENT ONCE A YEAR.

Looking to the Future
LORD WILLING This Sunday I will be preaching in Eden, NY, on Sunday morning with Pastor Art Kohl and Sunday evening in Brocton, NY, with Pastor Gary Nutt. THEN... Monday begins the "OLD FASHIONED SOUTHERN CAMP MEETING IN THE NORTH." Monday - Friday we will have 4 services a day from Eden to Shinglehouse, PA, back to Wattsburg, PA, then Mayville, NY, then ending in Erie, PA.
The Sunday following I will be with my friend Bob Kern in Aliquippa, PA, all day.
NEXT: Camp Meeting in Certral PA with Greg Harven, Denny Mallonee, Darren McClintock, Charlie Hicks and John Leatherman.
This tour will end in Markleton, PA, where I will be all day with a GREAT FRIEND Pastor Doug Baker and the good people at The Old Bethel Church.
HOME TO PREPARE TO WORK ON THE CANCER THEN OFF TO ALASKA FOR 2 MONTHS.
PRAYER NEEDED AND APPRECIATED

Yours for souls and Revival,
Ole Doc Foote
