Dr. Earl Jessup – July 2014

My wife and I have decided it is time to relocate near one of our children. We began praying about this several months ago, and the Lord has directed in our lives in this decision. Soon after beginning to pray, I asked the Lord to show me something from the Scripture that would lead us in the right direction. That morning I was reading from Leviticus 21 to 27, and having read through Leviticus many times, I was not expecting too much. I came to Leviticus 25:10 and read, “And ye sha…

The summer is well under way and the ministry opportunities continue to stream in. We have spent a good deal of the last two months in Ajax, ON helping the Michel missionary family prepare a basement apartment. This will allow Mrs. Michel’s parents to move in to assist with her family’s transition after loosing her husband Joel to a vehicle accident shortly after they moved to minister in the Netherlands. She has three children under five. Please pray for this family as they continue to…

Dr. Earl Jessup – June 2014

This has been the busiest spring church planting season ever for BCPM! God allowed our ministry to be involved in eight new church plants in fifteen weeks. We want to thank those of you who diligently prayed for each of these plants. The Lord blessed in wonderful ways. The average attendance on the Grand Opening Sunday was thirty-five in the services. Two plants had over sixty in attendance. Souls were saved, lives changed and communities were reached with the Gospel. Over 135,000…

Dr. Earl Jessup – May 2014

Please forgive me for not getting a monthly letter written in April. It was a very difficult month for us. I began taking a chemical compound called DCA to help with the fight of the cancer. I took two IVs before leaving for meetings, and I took several doses in pill form after leaving. There are significant side effects to taking DCA, and I was taking supplements to offset those. After most of the meetings, I began to experience what we thought to be some side effects to the DCA. W…

Clarence Moore – Mar – Apr 2014

Spring is officially here. Gen 8:22 promises that there will always be seasons so it will eventually warm up and summer will arrive.
Spring is always a great time for new growth. This is also a great opportunity for new church plants. This spring BCPM has already had the privilege of assisting in brand new works in Starkville, MS, Madera, CA, Phoenix, AZ and Bellville, OH, which is currently under way. The LORD has blessed in all these works. I mentioned helping find a building in…

Jeremy Rowland – January 2013

I appreciate all those who have been praying for the numerous church plants. God has blessed in each of the three so far this year. Two most recent church plants have taken place in Starkville, MS and Phoenix, AZ. Shining Light Baptist Church of Starkville held its Get Acquainted Meetings February 9-13 with several visitors from the community attending. On the first Sunday there were 34 people attending the morning service and 26 attending in the evening.  The reproducing church was…

Dr. Earl Jessup – March 2014

Last Wednesday, March 5, I had a full body CT scan and have been waiting to fully read the report before sending this letter. I finally decided to go ahead and get this letter out since it is nearly the middle of the month. However, I do have some information on the CT. The day following the scan, I was back at the hospital for a pacemaker check and met my urologist in the hallway. I mentioned to him that it was done and he said, “Let’s see if it has been studied.” We went to a computer…

Loren Steven – March 2014

The old saying “March in like a lion and out like a lamb”certainly has started out that way for 2014. If it is accurate for the weather, as Christians, we will take it one step further. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 9:10, “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might.”Let us enter the month for our Lord like a “lion”and close it the same way.

February concluded as Beacon Baptist Church in Phoenix, AZ, was planted with much labor. Thirteen churches brought together over 225…

The year is off to a busy start. We just returned home from a two month road trip. With weather conditions these are the worst months to be pulling a trailer around in the northern parts. Even though we began this run in North Carolina and Tennessee we had colder than normal conditions. We experience below freezing temperature throughout the entire trip. Our project in Charlotte, NC with Every Nation Baptist Church went well. We installed all the flooring and trimmed as much as possib…
