Here at AFA and AFR we have been looking forward to a visit from one of my all time favorite Chrisitan music artists, Larnelle Harris, who is here today to help us promote Pastor Appreciation Month. If you are not familiar with Larnelle, he is an amazing volalist and composer. Take a look at his many awards and accolades.
We spent the day today on AFR urging our listeners to pray daily for their pastor! Click here for a form to let us know that you are praying for your pastor. If the pastor you honored wins the prize pack they become qualified for the grand prize drawing - a cabin for two on the AFR Family Fun Cruise! Throughout this special day, they will announce the names of pastors that are being prayed for.
Tamara Durham in our office suprised me with a snapshot she took of my little visit with Larnelle following our staff devotional time where he had shared a couple of songs and words this morning. Wow! What an annointed powerful vocalist who has so faithfully carried the Lord's song all around this nation and world! Larnelle shared from his heart and God's Word in Ephesians 6 about how our pastor's are under spiritual attack and in desperate need of the prayers of God's people. It was obvious from Larnell's words that he clearly understands the all-out spiritual attack which all Christian leaders are under and God's pathway to victory.
Larnelle and I chatted for a few moments this morning and it didn't take long until the conversation turned to our grandchildren. I also took the opportunity to reminisce with him a little about his visit to Tupelo in the mid nineties when AFR sponsored his concert at the Tupelo Civic Auditorium where I directed a 50 voice back up choir for him. I will never forget the experience of sharing a time of minsitry with this incredible servant of the Kingdom.
