Mt Olive Baptist Church
I almost drove past this church! In fact, I hit the brakes and put the truck in reverse. It's always easier to just keep driving and to tell yourself that you'll get the picture next time. If I did that, then I wouldn't have this picture to share with you.
If you have any information on this church, please reach out!
