GREAT Meetings ON THE SAWDUST TRAIL

November 2014

This Fall has been one of the best that we have had in many years on the “OLE SAWDUST TRAIL.” Two GREAT MEETINGS in Florida, (still getting good reports) in September. Then most of October (where I turned 81) with Tim Shivler, John Traxler, and Gary Nutt in NY. In FL we were with Clark Walden and Richard Parker and one day with Jim Gilbert. God’s good Pastors. I also had the opportunity of being with my son David and the good folk at Franklin Baptist Temple for one Sunday.

I ask myself why and how can God Bless an old Evangelist as he travels this country preaching? YOUR PRAYERS ARE THE ONLY ANSWER.

You may remember that I have had to cancel my trip to Alaska in 2015 so I now have many open dates in 2015.

I still preach from the Ole King James Version (KJV) and lately I have seen some of the OLE TIME POWER with some of the OLE TIME RESULTS (souls saved in the homes as well as in the churches.) AND Revival in some of the churches.

I KNOW THAT MOST PASTORS ALREADY HAVE 2015 IN THEIR SCHEDULES BUT if you have not ,and would like to have an 0ld time revival with an old time evangelist e-mail me or call 770-337-0298.

NOTE From Brenda: Continue to pray for me as I turned 74 last month. Shingles and re-occurring kidney infections have been problems, but I was recently able to spend six weeks with my younger sister who has COPD and was just learning to adjust to Oxygen 24/7. I am now home and plan to continue with Leon in Evangelist travel as the Lord enables.

Looking forward to seeing some of you in our CHRISTMAS WITH THE PUPPETS PROGRAMS and CAMP MEETINGS IN THE NORTH.

URGENT PRAISE FOR ANSWER TO URGENT PRAYER REQUEST...

October 7, 2014

On Tuesday Sept. 30, after a 5 hour operation the doctor came to the waiting room and caused a rejoicing prayer meeting as 4 preachers, three preachers wives, two daughters and a husband made a circle and thanked God that He still hears prayer. People in 11 states had prayed for Melissa Berkheimer and God answered. The cancer was 7 inches long, yes inches long. She lost one kidney, but the doctor got it and she is all clear. A-Men. Many of you have ask but this is the first chance that I have had to reply. THANK YOU FOR PRAYING.

ANOTHER MATTER...

I had planned on being in Alaska Feb, March and part of April 2015, due to many circumstances that is canceled. So I have much open time in the Spring of 2015. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE AN OLE TIME REVIVAL WITH AN OLD TIME PREACH in this next Spring. E-mail oledocfoote@juno.com

God Bless YOU AND thanks again for your prayers.

FOOTEPRINTS ON THE SAWDUST TRAIL --- Summer 2014

September 12, 2014

Where and how do you begin to tell of GODS many, many Blessings. In June we were with Bro. Jeremy Smith in North Georgia for Old Fashioned Sunday ( I guess he wanted an old preacher). Then to Kentucky for the Old Kentucky Camp Meeting. (We met some great men of God there and I got to preach, you will not believe this, for 10 yes 10 minutes.) Then to John’s house in NC. We left there to go to PA to be with Bro. Denny Mallonee for VBS. Then back to NC for VBS with Bro. Randy Cook. From there to South GA for our yearly VBS with our good friend Bro. Ronnie Vice. We got a little rest after that before our One Day program at our home Church Canaan Baptist Church. A side line. Oct. 5 Canaan will welcome our new Pastor, Dr. Billy Ingram.

Let’s take a breath.. The rest of July two more VBS programs with Bro. Greg Harven in PA and Bro. Ken Heath in NC. That finished a great Summer of VBS programs with lessons of more O.T. real events.

A lot of traveling in August. First, Ole Time Revival meeting in Mayville NY with Pastor Norm Burdick. Then our 43 year of Deaf and Family Camp In PA, another great time with the deaf and hearing. From there short Revival in Shelocta,PA with a new friend, Pastor Rose.

Would you believe then a 3 day drive (with stops in VA at my daughters and in Jacksonville, FL with Mack Richardson who traveled with me in Evangelism in the 1950s. Where was I? Oh, then on to Port St. Lucy FL for Revival Meeting with Bro. Clark Walden one week the Bro. Richard Parker the second week and one Sunday with Br. Jim Gilbert in Okeechobee, FL.

A SPECIAL SHOUT OUT THANKS TO BRO. KEN NORMAN. He and the good folk at Bethel Baptist in Ft. Pierce allowed us to stay in their Prophet’s Chamber all of the time we were in FL.

WHAT IS NEXT ?

GREETINGS FROM THE SAWDUST TRAIL - AT HOME

Mar 20, 2014

Some of you have been receiving our Newsletter called "The Sawdust Trail" for over 30 years, and I have felt your prayers. God has blessed my preaching in answer to your prayers. THANKS.

For the past 3 weeks I have been setting home working on sermons and sending articles to the Call To Glory devotionals.I still have open time in April and May for OLD TIME REVIVALS. I am rested and ready to go. I have been preaching some on Sundays in our area. This Fall there are still 2 weeks open in Sept., one week in Oct. and one week in Nov. Contact me about meetings in your church with an 80 year old Evangelist who has been preaching 61 years.

SOMEONE NEEDS TO SAY IT ... THIS IS FROM AN ARTICLE IN 2003.

"Why should a Church use an Evangelist?"

"This answer is simple. Eph.4:11-13. The evangelist is a gift from God to the church. I know that many pastors do a good job holding revival meetings, but their gift (and calling) is different and the church is incomplete without the evangelist. The pastor, as a Shepherd, pastors his people as God's sheep. The evangelist, as a sheep dog, goes after the strays and tries to bring them back into the fold. Both are given for "the perfecting of the saints" for the work of the ministry. The evangelist tries to win the lost to Jesus, but he also tries to "REVIVE" the church by preaching on the sins of both the saved and the lost. I am not exalting myself or any other evangelist. I am magnifying the office and calling of the evangelist as as gift from God to your church. So don't neglect God's gift. Use an evangelist for your Spring and Fall Revival meetings. That's how Ole Doc sees it."

This article written 10 years ago is still needed today.

The Summer is just around to corner, WE ARE PRAYING FOR GREAT VACATION BIBLE SCHOOLS this year, PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR TEAM.

GOD BLESS YOU IN YOUR SERVICE FOR HIM.

Your friend,

Evangelist Leon Foote

REPORT ON THE OLD FASHIONED SOUTHERN CAMPMEETING IN THE NORTH

Feb 6, 2014

I want to give a big THANK YOU to all who had a part in making this year's meetings, maybe the best ever. With 52 services in 3 and a half weeks my 80 year old body began to get tired. NOW I am rested and ready to do it again.

Blessings after Blessings from Eden, NY where a 75 year old Jew got saved to Shinglehouse, PA, to Wattsburg, PA, to Franklin, PA, to Erie PA, where 3 young men came to surrender their lives to the Lord along the way one of the kids gave us a note saying "I got saved tonight."

After preaching our annual one day meeting with an old friend, Pastor Bob Kern in Aliquippa, PA. It was off to the second round of Camp Meetings in Central PA. ANOTHER WEEK OF GREAT PREACHING AND GREAT BLESSINGS.

Thanks to our preachers for the two weeks. Donnie Pollard, Owen Held, Randy Cook, George Alquist, Audy Seymour, David Foote, Ken Heath, Gary (Rambo) Blalock, George Clark.

And SPECIAL THANKS to the pastors and churches that hosted the meetings. Faith Bible Baptist, Eden, NY, Grace Ind. Baptist, Shinglehouse, PA, Fellowship Bible Baptist, Wattsburg, PA, Franklin Baptist Temple, Franklin, PA, and Grace of Calvary in Erie, PA.

Then Emmanuel Bible Church in Huntingdon, PA, Old Fashioned Baptist in Lewistown, PA, Cromwell Bible in Three Springs, PA, Emmanuel Baptist in Claysburg, PA, and finishing in Dry Run Ind. Baptist Church in Duncansville, PA.

Closing out the last week I had the opportunity of preaching at the Cedar Crest Baptist Church, the church that I pastored for 25 years. Great to see a lot of old friends and meet some new ones. I did tell them that they looked older. I had not seen some of them in over 30 years.

It was great to see altars filled again as in the old days during the Camp Meetings.

Please keep me in prayer as I have much open time this Spring and Fall.

Your Friend,

Leon Foote

SUMMER 2013

Sep 2, 2013

ITS ALMOST HERE!!!

God's good Blessings were on the Foote Evangelistic Team in the Summer VBS programs. Kids saved almost every day. In the first VBS program, granddaughter Abigail, age 8, went down to the playground and met a girl and asked her if she was saved; then asked her if she had a King James Bible. The girl came to VBS that night and got saved! That is not the rest of the story. The girl memorized over 100 Bible verses that week! God can use you even at age 8!

The Summer ended with our 43rd year of Deaf Camping in PA. It was a great camp directed by my son, Pastor David Foote. There were 3 deaf adults saved! As part of our Sunday Deaf Day I had the privilege of preaching for Pastor Kevin Trout, at Bible Baptist Church in York, PA. Brenda was able to sing and sign in all of the services.

Also, when not in VBS programs, I had the opportunity of preaching for some of Gods Choice preachers: Greg Harven, John Leatherman, Norman Burdick, Trevor Brubaker and my oldest son David. Then on the way home, preaching for pastors Don Fellows and Mark Smith. THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY OF PREACHING GOD'S WORD.
