Singing at the Church of God of Prophesy, Dyersburg, TN

"I became acqainted with James Lawson, an ordained minister in the denomination known as the Church of God of Prophesy. For part of the time I was enrolled at Tennessee Technological University, I attended the local church in Cookeville, Tennessee where he was the pastor. Not longer after I met him, the denomination reassigned him to be the pastor of their church in Dyersburg, Tennessee. Spirit and Truth Ministries provided some financial assistance to the Lawson family for thier moving expenses. A few months later, Spirit and Truth Ministries received an invitation to minister in song during the Sunday morning service at the Church of God of Prophesy in Dyersburg. The first picture below shows the church building where we ministerd. The second picture is of Pastor James Lawson and his wife, Brenda Lawson. In the last two pictures, Ruby Lea is posing with the Lawson family on a dock at Reelfoot Lake near Dyersburg."

Singing at Algood Church of God and Master's Health Care, Algood, TN

"I was introduced to the Algood Church of God by one of my college friends, Tara. Her father played guitar for this church, and it opened a door for Ruby Lea and I to sing and minister at this church as representatives of Spirit and Truth Ministries. The pastor, Curtis Roberson, is pictured below with his wife Rosa in the living room of the parsonage, which was located on the same street as the church. Pastor Roberson's mother lived at Master's Health Care, a nursing home located about half a mile from the church. Through our acquaintance with the Robersons, we were also able to minister to the residents of the nursing home with gospel singing. For one such occasion, we brought all of Spirit and Truth Ministries' sound equipment and performed in the nursing home cafeteria."
