Post is a community that has a rich history. This is a town founded by C.W. Post in the early 1900’s. They exude a spirit of confidence and independence that is bred by surviving the challenges of ranching in West Texas.
Felicia and I enjoyed our time with the folks here. We were made to feel right at home. Rev. Scott Richards has done a great job in Post. I’ve known him for years but have never had a chance to work with him until this week. I was very impressed with his heart for ministry.
Post has one of the most beautiful sanctuaries I’ve seen. I loved the stained glass window you see behind me.
Cowboy Dan (Daniel in the Lion’s Den) was a big hit in Post. Lots of cowboys here.
It’s fun watching the kids enjoy the stories.
It’s awesome to see young people respond to the Holy Spirit and pray for themselves and their friends. This shows that our youth are spiritually hungry and responsive.
The church had a great bell choir that provided some beautiful music on one of the evenings. We also got to hear from the children and adult choirs.
We had wonderful times of worship.
There are several working ranches in the area. Felicia and I got to share a meal with some of the cowboys and spent part of one chilly afternoon watching them work. It was quite an operation. It took only about a minute per calf to rope it, give shots, de-horn, turn it into a steer, and brand.
Here the boys are talking things over.
Choosing the next one. This guy made it seem easy.
After the brand is in place, the calf joins the rest of the herd.
Then, the process starts all over again.
We are praying that God will continue the good work that He has been doing in Post and that a spirit of true revival will fall on this town. I know they are praying for the same thing.
We won’t soon forget our time in Post.
