Plan to attend next uplifting revival in March

At this time of year, some people think of the Super Bowl halftime entertainment and all the activity that goes along with it. Hands in the air, shouts of support, refreshments, friends and celebration.

Competitive sports are one thing, but gathering together – there's another kind of celebration. It shows appreciation for the many blessings our Lord and savior has given us.

“Taking Back the City” was a revival that took place Feb. 1-2 at Rock Falls Community Building at 601 W. 10th St. in Rock Falls. Two local men, Evangelist Mike Hubbard and Pastor Dennis Hurd, organized this event and, to say the least, it was exhilarating.

From Indiana, apostle Tony Trusty, teacher Timothy Ross, Johnny Johnson, evangelist, and Brother John, a visitor from Pakistan, were the speakers. Wesley and Linda Ashly sang, and musician Micah Buyno played guitar and banjo.

Praising God openly is something I put my heart into because I have so much to be thankful for. I joined my voice in one accord with the many people who attended; now that's celebration.

Renewing our spirits and our strength is what revival is all about. Giving thanks from the bottom of our hears, receiving so much more and “paying it forward,” releasing the love we receive back into our homes and communities is why we do it.

The people from Indiana will be returning March 8-9. For more information, call Mike Hubbard at 779-348-4880.
