A much needed vacation
After Perry and I were married, we began to travel and minister right away. For the next twenty years, we traveled from church to church and revival to revival. It was common for the meeting to be extended from one week to perhaps eleven weeks without a break. I recall one time that a revival lasted sixteen weeks, with Perry preaching every single night. He was so exhausted that he invited a young minister to come and help pray for the seekers in the altar. Finally, he told the pastor that he would close the revival because he was too tired physically to continue. It was the first vacation we had after being married for several years.
