Dear Friend, Our entire family is so appreciative of your prayer support during these past six weeks since the loss of our grandson. We know the Lord has reasons for these things that we do not know but nevertheless this comfort does not make it much easier at a time like this. Thank you for praying for us and please...

Dear Friend, Several weeks ago, I preached a Thanksgiving message at Pensacola on thankfulness. One verse I used was, “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (I Thessalonians 5:18) It has never been more difficult to obey than now. I am sure that most of you know the sorrow we are...

Dear Friends, Our entire staff wants to wish you a wonderful Christmas this year as you celebrate our Saviour’s birth. This time of the year is a wonderful time to gather with our physical family and also our spiritual family. We hope you have time to celebrate with both during the next few weeks. This past year has been one...

Dear Friends, The month of November is an important month for Baptist Church Planting Ministry. It is during the month of November that we try to replenish the Seed Bank of BCPM. This money is used to help churches cover the start-up expenses when planting a new church. A special letter and brochure will be sent out to each...

Dear Friends, Many of you received an email this past week telling you about the Shingles I developed. I appreciate your prayers! For those of you who do not know, I noticed a problem on my eyelid that grew gradually worse. I went to Urgent Care while in Spokane, WA, and the doctor put me on Valtrex for Shingles, which...

Dear Friends, Beth and I are preparing to “hit the road” in just a couple of days. It has been wonderful to have a “lighter” schedule for the summer, but now it is time to get back to work. We are thankful to report that I came through surgery on the 23rd with only minor problems. The day after the surgery,...

Dear Friend, Someone recently said to me, “We are praying for you. How are you feeling?” I do appreciate so much those that pray for Beth and me. We were in a new church last week and many in the church mentioned they were praying for us and our health needs. I know this sounds strange but we are thankful...

Dear Friend, Many of you may remember that two years ago, Beth became very sick with a kidney infection. While we were at the Church Planting School in Woodbridge, Virginia, she again fell ill to a kidney infection. We did not think it would be a problem since the doctor had given her antibiotics to carry with her in case...

Dear Friend, We praise the Lord for His protection and care for us and this ministry. I had another checkup on May 31st and the doctor said the tumor has only grown about 5% since the last check three months ago. He suggested we wait for another three months before taking it out. I asked if it was malignant and...

Dear Friend, Thank you so much for praying for me about my back situation and for the bladder situation. Someone said to me the other day, “We sure are praying for you!”  I told them that in one way I thank God for the problems He has given me because if I didn’t have these problems probably no one would pray...
