Walk Around Town: Enterprise

Here is a shot of the sanctuary at St. John's. I was in their Saturday evening after Mass, noticing how nice it is, so I took this picture.

Also, each Saturday after the 5PM Mass, a Hispanic group comes and has Praise/ Preaching/Prayer Session from 7-10PM. I joined them yesterday evening and really enjoyed it. They were all very kind and hospitable and even asked me to read some Scripture and preach a little bit. I was so impressed by their commitment to this prayer. 3 hours!!! Every week! And then Mass in the morning. And only because they desire to be there, praising God and seeking further conversion of their hearts.

Here is some of the band cleaning up their gear after the Prayer Session:

This afternoon I went to Walmart to get some groceries. It is one of the most important landmark's in Enterprise

Afterwards, I decided to run by downtown and get some shots to share with ya'll.

Although Walmart is a big landmark, all landmarks in Enterprise fall short of THE landmark in Enterprise--the BOLL WEEVIL.

The Boll Weevil is indigenous to Mexico. But showed up in Enterprise somehow in 1915 and quickly began to destroy the cotton crops growing there. This led a couple guys to start growing peanuts and other crops instead which did very well. Whereas this area was tied solely to cotton, the Boll Weevil forced the farmers to explore other crops which turned out to be very lucrative for all involved. To show their appreciation for Mr. Weevil, the town had this statue erected right at the crosshairs of downtown.

Here are some other shots of the quaint and charming historic downtown of Enterprise:

The water tower--a hall mark of any Southern small town

I've noticed this guy a couple times before--guess its a little bit easier to get roping trash cans down pat before moving onto other less sedentary objects. Haha. I gotta talk to this guy and figure out the story behind it.

God Bless America.

God Bless Enterprise.

God Bless You.
