I just arrived and I’m getting settled into my hotel room in Fort Knox, Kentucky. I’m here to start revival tonight for Pastor Glen Gordon and the Zion Grove Missionary Baptist Church. I met Pastor Gordon shortly after I arrived in Frankfort and he’s an active part of the General Association of Baptists in Kentucky, of which I serve as Chairman of the Publishing Board.
I’ve never been to this part of Kentucky. It’s home to the famous Fort Knox, Kentucky Military Installation, the George S. Patton Museum, and the Federal Reserve Gold Storage. Thousands of US Soldiers are housed in this area and obviously this is an economy that is centered around the military and accompanying economies.
Today is a strange day since it has been hours after the attacks on the U.S. Embassies in Egypt and Libya. Even in the convenience store, people seemed a little somber. Even though we’re here in Kentucky, the reverberation and military possibilities apparently are on the minds of several people here.
So, I’m getting ready to settle down and prepare to preach tonight. Keep me in your prayers.
