Sunday, October 11, 2009 We wanted to let everyone know that the first Get-Acquainted Meeting went very well.

Everyone commented on how they enjoyed the service, and they are looking forward to being back for the next service! The church phone has been busy, and we look forward...

Dear Friends in Christ, As most of you know, Beth’s father, Willie Atkinson, passed away last month. He survived much longer than either the doctors (or we) thought he would. He passed away on September 22nd and was buried with full military honors, including a twenty-one gun salute and taps. This is not done very much anymore. He was wounded...

Dear Co-Laborers and Friends, Praise the Lord for His faithfulness and grace!! October got off to a busy start with a trip to the Branson, MO, area and opportunity to bring a report to Talking Rock Baptist Church.  They were starting their mission conference.  This church is doing many John/Romans for missionaries and others. We returned home and were there for the...

Monday, September 14, 2009 We thank you for all your prayer and support for the opening meetings of New Life Baptist Church in Maple, Ontario. The first night was a great answer to all our prayers. Many times we would think that a service was a failure if the altars were not filled with people, but tonight we saw seven local people...

Monday, September 14, 2009 Any time there is a church plant, the devil is sure to fight us for we believe the planting of a local, new testament church is exactly what God desires for today. This is exactly what the devil does NOT want to happen. The folks at Solid Rock Baptist Church are standing strong and pushing forward. Last night...

“One of the reasons this ministry is successful is because of the dedication of my wife. This article was written in 1981 as we were planting our first church. Her dedication to her family and the ministry is clearly evident. I thought it important for this article to be published again.” Dr. Earl Jessup General Director Written by Mrs. Beth Jessup Have you ever...

Dear Friend, Dr. John Goetsch recently said in a message, “The problems of life are God-filtered.” I have often said, “Nothing comes our way that God does not allow and if we will let Him, He will use it for our good.” We again are facing one of these “God-filtered” problems. In fact, right now we are facing a...
