The Booth Brothers were in Lakeland Saturday afternoon, January 20 at the Ardella Baptist Church, and Trust Quartet enjoyed the afternoon with them! Ronnie and Michael Booth, joined by Paul Lancaster, are an energetic trio that gives everything they have to bring a message of encouragement and hope to all who attend their concerts.
From hymns to classic southern gospel, the program brought us into the presence of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. It was truly a worship service!
Just before the concert started, Trust Quartet was honored to visit the guys backstage. The Booth Brothers are incredibly personable and welcomed us with open arms. We were so grateful to be able to swap stories for a few minutes with them. Michael and Ronnie were gracious enough to pose for a picture during that backstage visit. (Paul was already at work in the auditorium, so he couldn't be with us.)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Trust Quartet picked up 2018 where we left off in 2017! The first weekend of January, we were with Treasure Island Baptist Church in Okeechobee. While Trust would refer to the Okeechobee Church of God as our 'home' church, Treasure Island Baptist is where it all began some 25 years ago. We're thankful for our heritage and this church plays a huge role in that.
We took a weekend off before heading to Lakeland to attend a Booth Brothers concert. There was a separate blog post and pictures with that earlier in the month. The next night, we were with our friends at the Indiantown Baptist Church. We always enjoy being with these folks and are already looking forward to next year when we can be back with them again. The opportunity to fellowship around the table with them after the service is always a special time.
The following weekend wrapped up our January concerts with a Sunday morning concert at the Daytona Christian Church. The race track was active and so was the church! One of the highlights of attending services there is the pastor's Sunday school class. There is always some choice nuggets of truth we gain when we come away from there!
That evening, we were with the Full Gospel Church in Oak Hill. What a night! The church is most always packed when Trust Quartet is there, and they are always ready for church! It was raining when we loaded up to leave, and special thanks to the guys who helped take equipment to the bus in the rain.
