Dr. Earl Jessup – December 2014

I have held off writing this letter for several days because of the cystoscopy I had today. The results show four new tumors, three in the bladder and one attached to the prostate. Surgery is scheduled for January 20. Thank you for praying for us.

We would also like for you to pray seriously about another health matter. Mrs. Bev Steven, the wife of Loren Steven, our Field Representative, fell last week and the tests show a fractured fourth vertebrae and also a fractured wrist. She has a…

Loren Steven – December 2014

I thank God that He grants us the honor of being able to be thankful in everything. As we close out the year of 2014, we are soooo blessed. After the longest journey in several years, we can only rejoice. We enjoyed a blessed Thanksgiving here at home with family and some new friends with no family nearby. They have four children that have been adopted from Russia. We take so much for granted living here in America. We certainly, as His redeemed ones, do not deserve His blessing and…

Clarence Moore – November 2014

The Year has flown by so quickly. The LORD has given us so many opportunities to serve Him for which we are thankful. We have been blessed with good health throughout the family this year. We have avoided any flu bugs or things that so quickly travel in a family. Emily and Adrianna have been doing very well at Ambassador Baptist College and are nearly out for Christmas break. Emily is working on her senior year and has had a busy semester thus far. Our “little” Adrianna braved stepping out…

We bring you greetings from Minnesota. So many blessings occurred during our trip that we wanted to share some of them. You were so much a part of this as you prayed for us. We found out just a couple of days before leaving that I had more kidney stones. There was no time to deal with them surgically (one being over fourteen cm) before leaving so we asked people to pray that they just would not move. God answered that prayer, and I had no pain for over eight weeks. Just a couple of days after…

Jeremy Rowland – November 2014

Over the last several weeks we have been able to focus on our support and attend several mission’s conferences in the states of Florida, Virginia, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Arizona. Three of those were new church plants taking steps of faith to commit to faith promise missions giving. Even though they are just one year old, Pastor Jon Gorman and the Freedom Baptist Church of Bordentown, NJ held their first conference and committed thousands of dollars to missions over…

Dr. Earl Jessup – November 2014

Isn’t it wonderful how God sometimes reveals His power? Beth and I spent much of October traveling.  While in West Virginia in a mission’s conference, I picked up some tracts from the church to hand out.  I had several left, and on our way to Florida, I handed some out and left others in conspicuous places.

I left the last tract in a rest area near Jacksonville, Florida.  I distinctly remember thinking as I was leaving the tract, “I wonder if this is doing any good?”  While in…

Loren Steven – September 2014

We have begun an extended time on the road and God has been so good to us. In mid- August, we left Minnesota amid high temperatures. The first service was to report to a church in Farwell, MI, that has been part of our supporting team for many years. It was a blessed day with Pastor Nestor and the church family. They are such gracious people.
We then crossed from Port Huron, MI, to Niagara Falls, NY. We crossed into the U.S. via the Rainbow Bridge from which we could see and hear the work…

Dr. Earl Jessup – September 2014

I have put off writing this letter until I had more information about all the tests and bladder surgery this past week. I just returned from a visit with the oncologist at the hospital with as much information as I will be getting. The CT Scan shows no new tumors in the lungs, but the three tumors already there have increased in size. In the past six months, the largest one has doubled to 1.7 CM X 2.2 CM. The others are smaller. The pancreatic tumor has increased to 3 CM from 2 CM. T…

Jeremy Rowland – August 2014

On August 1st BCPM celebrated its twenty-first anniversary.

What a thrill to look back and see what God has done through a desire to see churches reproduce churches. BCPM has now helped 147 churches start in over nine different countries. That is an average of one church plant every 1.7 months since BCPM started and we are looking forward to see what God will do in the years ahead if the Lord tarries. We have advised to put off the two church plants scheduled for this fall and hav…

Dr. Earl Jessup – August 2014

Our ministry typically slows down during the summer and this year has been no different. We have used this time to get some rest, spend time with our families and get ready for the fall meetings.

This fall is certainly not typical for us. We do not have a single church plant scheduled for this fall. The ones we have been working on have been pushed to the spring. We would rather postpone the church plant than go ahead and not have everything ready with the project. Please pray for t…
