Thad,

I recall Sis. Rita Dawson from way back in the 70s. She passed away in 1991 and her husband in 2005.

Here is a copy of the obituary for her husband:

Has it been that long since she passed?? surely not.

Her son was killed in some type of accident in '07
I'm glad it was After she passed- she suffered so much sorrow as it was.

I was not thinking that it had been that long since her passing either. As you see, her maiden name was Campbell and was a relative of Bruce and Boots Campbell...I think I have those names correct.

That congregation moved closer to Bakersfield. The church at Lamont where Jimmie Davis pastored is the closest. Elder Blotto is the pastor now.

really? I'll have to check with some of my friends about that.

Most of Jimmy's members scattered and went to either IHT's or Mullings after he passed- i think it was during the time that the son was pastoring??

Thanks, everyone for your input.

I preached a revival in Weedpatch many years ago when the Dawson's were pastoring. I experienced my first earthquake while there. The parsonage had upstairs bed rooms and it was just about breakfast time when I started down the stairs and almost fell down because for some reason it seemed the chandelier over the dining room table was swinging back and forth and the china hutch seemed to be dancing. I thought I was the one who was moving. It was a unique experience. I can't imagine what an earthquake of size would be like.

As I recall their were vineyards just a few hundred yards from the church and parsonage. I also recall how arid it was. I could play basketball with the young people in 100 degree temps and hardly break a sweat and I am the kind that sweats at freezing temperature.

I enjoyed my time there and then I went north and preached for a black church in Fresno (offering church is what I call it) and then on up into the big tree country for a revival in a small home missions work. I can't remember the pastor's name but I found some pictures of them the other day.

Boom, I may scan the pictures and see if maybe you or some of the others from the Northern areas of CA might recognize them. they may have pastored in the Redding area. i am not sure.
