The third night of the Get-Acquainted Meetings for Bethel Baptist Church of Afton, VA was filled with excitement. Pastor Art Dunham of Grace Baptist Church in Woodstock, VA brought a good group of people to help. The ushers stood outside to wave people in and many people slowed their cars down to see what was going on. The community is...

We are thankful for all those who sacrifice for LORD’s work. It would be impossible to do our ministry without the help of the LORD through many churches. We know that fruit will abound to your account. The month of March has been a busy one. When we were home, there were many opportunities for us to serve in Lighthouse Baptist...

For the second night (last night on Monday, April 18, 2011) of the Get-Acquainted Meetings for Bethel Baptist in Afton, VA, there was a tremendous spirit. Pastor Deloach of Abermarle Baptist Church in Albermarle, VA brought several of his people to help with ushering, nursery, special music, and refreshments. BCPM helped Pastor Deloach start his church 13 years ago, and...

I want to thank everyone for their prayers for this church plant. It seems that Satan tried hard to stop it before it began. Yesterday the area suffered from flash flooding and tornadoes.

This will be the first independent,...

I want to update you on what I know regarding the tumor and surgery.  I have spent the morning at the hospital and the doctor's office. The surgeon showed me the lung x-ray and compared with the last one done in January.  The tumor is "significantly larger" than the January x-ray.  It was obvious to the eye when I looked at...

With the arrival of spring, our ministry begins the work of helping churches with the Get-Acquainted Meetings for new churches. This spring is unusually slow with only one church plant. Bethel Baptist Church is being planted in Afton, Virginia. The GAM is planned for April 17-21, and the John/Romans are scheduled to be delivered soon for this meeting.  Pastor James...

One more month closer to the return of our Blessed Saviour.  The church needs a revival of seeing the need of planting churches.  We often decry the moral decay that we see across our nation and the globe.  Is it not amazing that in the early years even with the moral depravity of the governments about them the Scriptures state...
