My Story #109
Early Travels of 2nd Group
January 30, 2023
Pastor Ronnie Wolfe
As we traveled from church to church, this second group went through a short time of getting to know one another.
While on the road, the "new boys" (Carl Morton | Bobby Lakes) had questions about the Bible and theology. Bob Jones and I, being the more experienced in studying at LBC, had the privilege of telling them what we knew of the Bible and theology. Actually, we all learned together. We tried to stay away from silly questions such as "How many angels can stand on the point of a needle?"
When we stayed overnight, in those days we would get one motel room with two twin beds, and we would sleep two in a bed. Once Bobby Lakes accused me of stealing his pillow, but I did not. He actually dropped it on the floor. Those were fun times.
Later, when we did not live so close to one another, we had to travel individually or perhaps two together. When I traveled with Bro. Morton, he usually drove. He would put an audio cassette into the cassette player in the car and would ask me to take notes from the sermon he was playing from the cassette. So, I sometimes had a long job to do while we traveled to our destination.
I have heard him preach some of these messages, and they did not sound the same as on the cassette; but it was always good.
Eating together was another interesting thing. We would stop at a restaurant and order our food; but, before we could finish our dessert, Bob Jones was on his feet saying, "All right, boys, it's time to go: let's go".
But we endured it and went on. We always enjoyed singing and preaching in our meetings, and we met many wonderful people, who became lifelong friends. We also experienced seeing many trust the Lord, surrender their lives in rededication, and some young men being called to preach.
