So the name of a church there would be "Weedpatch Pentecostal Church" or "Weedpatch UPC" or something like that. Of course, a OP church in a town called "Trinity" could have some interesting names.
It's in the desert Sam - Bakersfield area is similar to the mojave Desert.
our choir sung in Taft a few months ago which is 20 miles west of Bakersfield- you talk about God forsaken Woooow! you'd be lucky to find a patch of weeds anywhere lol A lot of people like it I suppose because there is almost no rain year around,no ice,no snow.

The Dawson´s were some of our closest friends. She preached our very first ladies convention in Brazil. Sister Dawson was probably one of the smartest people in her day in the Pentecostal ranks. She was an awesome woman.
Their church continues but is in Bakersfield I am supposed to be with them in Feb.
Their last pastor Brother Pulse passed away with a heart attack.

My brother in law before he passed away pastored Brother Davis´s church.

There are several churches in Bakersfield.

The "new" pastor of the Weedpatch church is a Bro. Blackwood.

Incidentally Pastor OJ Johnson is Bishop Vaughns SIL and they are doing a wonderful job in Fresno. They are NOT really affiliated (if anything very loosely) with Bishop Jakes.....long story short he attended one of Jakes conferences and signed up for something and was listed as one of his churches. I know several Pastors that are listed on Jakes website who have no affiliation with him, other than that they attended a conference and filled out information card.

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.

If I am not mistaken, Boots Campbell and Rita Dawson were siblings.
