organized by year. Before each group of pictures, David Spakes tells
about the item or event.
"The late 1990s brought many changes to our personal lives as I met,
courted, and married my wife, Sheila Ann Adcox. Sheila's father, Bill,
and my mother, Ruby Lea--both single--became lifelong friends and a
'couple'. They moved about an hour away from Seymour to the city of
Kingston, Tennessee, and this meant that we had fewer opportunities to
sing together. In these pictures taken in October, 1999, the four of
us ministered together as the Spirit and Truth Singers at a church near
Oak Ridge, Tennessee (about half way between Seymour and Kingston)."
Music and Singing for Revival at the Center of Hope, Knoxville, TN
"Sheila and I visited a new church that opened up in South Knoxville
near where we lived in Seymour. We met the pastor, Lisa Latham, and
talked with her for a while after the service. She asked for assistance
with music for an upcoming revival she had planned, and Spirit and Truth
Ministries responded by providing sound equipment for the duration of
the revival. Sheila and I attended the revival and sang, representing the
Spirit and Truth Singers.
The revival lasted four days, starting with two services on Sunday,
November 21, and continuing nightly through Wednesday, November 24.
The evangelist was Brenda Williams of West Palm Beach, Florida.
On one of the nights of the revival, the evangelist prophesied
to me and Sheila. The audio file below contains the recording of a
testimony I gave the following week at Emory Gap Church of God (below)
in which I talked about the prophesy."
Singing at Emory Gap Independent Church of God, Harriman, TN
"The weekend after Thanksgiving, Sheila and I drove to Harriman to
sing at Emory Gap Independent Church of God during the evening
service, Sunday, Nomvember 28.
During the first half of the song service, the pastor laid on hands on
and prayed for the members of the congregation, and he requested that
Sheila and I sing (several times) the song called He'll Do It Again.
It was a favorite song of this church."
