Dr. Earl Jessup – March 2015

Thank you for praying!!!! We needed it so badly, from the surgery on February 3rd, the packing during the month, the winter travel to Arkansas and the travel and preaching at end the month. We are so thankful for a staff that has carried the load of ministry during this time as well with the church plant in Casa Grande, Arizona, and the preparations for the upcoming church plants. We have four church plants scheduled by the end of May.
My wife believes that the surgery on February 3…

The last few weeks have been busy with the birth of a new church and with helping young churches with their missions conferences. New Life Baptist Church got off to a healthy start in Casa Grande, AZ. Pastor Ray McCormick is the new pastor and he has been busy following up on all the visitors they have had. It was good to see so many local churches helping with this church plant including Open Door Baptist in Catalina, AZ with Pastor Kurt Kramer. BCPM helped birth Open Door five years ago…

February started with many, many blessings. There was the victorious start of New Life Baptist Church, in Casa Grande, AZ. Many individuals attended the Get-Acquainted Meetings, and the first Sunday they rejoiced with over eighty in attendance. More than sixty of these were from the community. Earlier in the month, Dr. Jessup had successful surgery to remove several tumors. He went into surgery at eight a.m. and was home by two p.m. Just a few days later, movers loaded their household goods…

Dr. Earl Jessup – February 2015

I waited a few days to write this letter in order to have the results of my bladder surgery. I had the surgery February 3, and it went very well. The four tumors in the bladder and the one tumor attached to the prostate were removed and thankfully, no new tumors showed up in the past two months. I went into the hospital at 8:00 AM and was home by 1:30 PM. We praise the Lord that no complications have shown up, and I am recovering nicely. I should be back to a full schedule of activities…

We send greetings from the south. We began this year living full-time in the MCI bus we converted. It was a huge financial endeavor to keep the house and have both Emily and Adrianna in Bible College. Selling the house lifted a huge burden for us. Although we do not intend on making this a permanent living situation we are content to continue until the LORD sees fit to give us another place. The bus gives us so much more room and will allow our family to travel together as such. We ar…

Jeremy Rowland – February 2015

The church plants for 2015 are in full swing. Over 110,000 John and Roman booklets will need to go out covering five different cities between now and May. Preparations are in place to reproduce healthy churches in Casa Grande, AZ; Oregon, OH; Easton, MD; Yarmouth, ME; and Lisbon in the country of Portugal. Pray for the efforts of numerous churches and christians that will team together to saturate these areas with the gospel and establish solid local Independent Baptist churches.

The Get…

“…For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” James many years ago gave us warning that life is very transient. There is work to be done, and we must be busy for our Lord. Thank you for letting us partner with you and your church.

December has been a challenging month. We have had many blessings in spite of the challenges of Bev’s accident. We have been blessed this year to see the growth and blessings of souls saved in…

Dr. Earl Jessup – January 2015

As we begin this New Year we want to give you an update on our ministry for this past year and also what is being planned for the coming year. We want you to be aware of how we have invested your sacrificial investment in our ministry. We are very thankful for each of you and your faithful help in this ministry through prayer and finances.

We were involved in eight church plants this past year. All of them were in the United States which is a bit unusual. (There are some years when…

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…

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…
