JONESVILLE — With the help of a missionary from Spartanburg, The Potter’s Storehouse will hold a five-day revival and food-raiser.
Dave Walton of Spartanburg is a missionary who spends much of his time in Nicaragua, digging wells and building churches, which also serve as schools. Walton has also led around 400 revivals around the U.S.
In February, Walton became aware of The Potter’s Storehouse (TPS) in February when he saw Pastor Don Moore receive a Caring for the Carolinas award on WSPA-TV Channel 7. Walton decided to visit a TPS distribution in March.
“He said he had no idea there was something of this magnitude going on in his own backyard,” Moore said about Walton.
Walton learned that TPS gives food to 3,500-4,500 people in need each month, which averages over 900 families. Pastor Don said since Walton visited, he has helped TPS through both financial donations and prayer.
Walton also learned that while TPS feeds those who are in need, TPS faces its own struggles with expenses. Last week, the TPS box truck broke down on the way back from Charlotte with a load of food. The truck had to be towed in for repairs and needed two new tires, presenting a total cost of around $800. The TPS power bill is also $700 past due.
“The Potter’s Storehouse is in need, and Brother Dave sees the need and wants to help,” Moore said.
Moore and Walton will partner to hold a revival and food-raiser event at TPS, beginning Saturday, May 17. The event will run each night through Wednesday, May 21. The kick-off event on Saturday will include free hot dogs, chips and drinks for everyone from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Services will begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and services will begin at 7 p.m. Monday-Wednesday.
Moore said TPS is in desperate need of canned goods, and he asks that anyone who is able to bring canned goods or non-perishable items each night of revival.
Moore also said he looks forward to Walton’s message each night.
“Brother Dave comes with a message of encouragement and hope for everyone,” Moore said. “He is a really dynamic guy, and he is on fire for the Lord.”
Special singing will also be featured each night of the five-day event.
