Dr. Earl Jessup

Dear Friend, I am a bit late with this letter because we wanted to wait until after we finished working on a church plant in Reynoldsburg, Ohio. Reynoldsburg is a suburb of Columbus and the church was reproduced by Newark Baptist Temple in Heath. Several churches helped with the meetings and God blessed. We averaged around sixty-five each evening, with...

Dear Friend, Thank you so much for praying for our ministry this month and for the issues facing us. Mrs. Steven is doing well with the knee replacement and should be back on her feet in a few weeks. Brother Steven is doing pretty well, but is still tired from all the radiation he has taken. I am doing better...

Dear Friend, I am so thankful for all the churches that are interested in reproducing new churches. We are constantly getting more and more inquiries from pastors and church planters requesting information and help in planting new churches. We now have eight churches with dates in 2008 for planting a new church, and we are working on six more that...

Dear Friend, On New Year’s Eve, we were with our children and grandchildren in Wisconsin enjoying the holiday, but especially the grandchildren. We are envious of grandparents who have their children and grandchildren living near them. We realize, however, that is not what God had for our family, and we are content with where God has placed us. As we...

Dear Friend, For the entire BCPM family, I want to extend Christmas greetings to you. We will be praying that this Christmas season will be one filled with joy and happiness for each of you. We also will be praying that the Lord will use you as you witness for Him during this time of the year. This...

Dear Friend, Beth and I want to thank each of you that have called, sent cards, emailed and prayed for us. We have been so encouraged by your care and concern for us and our family. We are so thankful to the Lord for how He has worked in our lives and for His faithfulness to us through the...

Dear Friend, 2 Corinthians 12:9, “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” I hardly know how to start this letter. Needless to say, things have changed dramatically since I wrote the last monthly letter. On September 7, I woke with pain in my right side, and I...

Dear Friend, This summer has been nothing like we could ever have imagined as we drove to Beckley, WV, on the afternoon of May 6th. It has been one of the most difficult times of our lives with seemingly everyday bringing a new challenge or problem. We praise the Lord for His working in our lives and giving us this...

Dear Friend, We again want to thank each of you for praying for us and our family during this summer. We never dreamed at the beginning of May that we would endure so much is such a short time. As some of you know, my Dad passed away on July 12th. As I mentioned in my last letter, he was...

Dear Friend, Beth and I want to express our sincere thanks for those who have prayed for us over the past few weeks. As I think back to the crucial forty-eight hours following my fall, I honestly believe it was the prayers of God’s people that kept me from having the emergency surgery that the doctors thought would be...
