Early Life in the Coal Camp-My Dad Was Saved


mt-lewis-church.jpgMy mom and I attended the Mt. Lewis Baptist Church and my daddy went “sometimes”.  The picture is the actual church as it looks today.  Rev. Eugene Wolfe was holding a revival service at our church and my mom talked daddy into going with her.  He attended several nights and really like to hear Rev. Wolfe preach.  One night of the revival, he walked to the alter and prayed and ask God to forgive him of his sins.  He became a born again Christian and was baptized later.

My dad was a faithful Christian for the remainder of his life.  He served as a deacon, association leader, teacher and church treasurer most of his life.  He was an Christian example to his children and grandchildren.

Life in the coal camp produced good results that lasted a lifetime.
