Report on Dennis’ Activites in North Carolina and Virginia

Submitted by Host Rob Robins, Osborne Baptist Church, Greensboro, NC

Dennis arrived at Greensboro at 11:30 pm on 8/13, several hours
late. On Sunday the 14th we visited Osborne Baptist Church, but were unable to
stay for the entire service due to the fact that Dennis needed to be at Liberty
University in Lynchburg, VA
, some 100 miles away, at 12:30 pm to begin his
business class. After a quick stop at Ci Ci’s pizza and the campus bookstore,
Dennis began his five day intensive class in Strategic Planning. Dennis stayed with Wes Gauldin and
his wife who graciously shuttled him around and fed him for a week. (Wes’
brother-in-law has been to Malawi and is friend’s with Dennis.) 

On Thursday night the 19th, I picked Dennis up from Lynchburg. Saturday we went
fishing during the morning and then Dennis mowed some of Genesis Ministries
field with my little tractor. The next day – Sunday – he was able to teach an
adult connection group at Osborne Baptist, before preaching a fabulous sermon
at M & L Tabernacle of Faith in Reidsville, NC, followed by a wonderful
meal. Sunday evening Dennis spoke at a Celebrate Recovery, sharing the
testimony of how his drunkard dad met Jesus and was changed. 

Monday, the 22nd, we went to Celebration Station and raced go-carts, rode bumper boats, and played a game of
Putt-Putt golf. That evening we, my 8 yr. old, David Hinton – a young man who
spent over 3 months in Malawi, and Delana, who has also been to Malawi, went to
an indoor rock climbing facility. To which, Dennis made it the 40’ to the top. 


On Wednesday, before flying to San
Diego, Dennis spoke to the Elementary students at Community Baptist Christian School,
presented a beautiful chief’s chair to the pastor of M&L Tabernacle, and
had lunch with another African American pastor.
