Dear Pastor, I waited to write our monthly letter until I received the report from my August 1st CT Scan. Yesterday, I went to the hospital to pick it up and only received a CD disk rather than the written report I usually receive. I asked the receptionist about it, but she said that everything was on the disk. After returning...

Dear Pastor, As we approach the middle of the summer, I want to give you just a quick update on our ministry. I know that many people are away on vacation and other activities, like camp and VBT, are taking much time to plan and implement. The Lord is continuing to bless our ministry and over the past few weeks, we have...

Dear Pastor, Our spring church plants are completed with four new churches birthed and now reaching communities for Christ. We praise the Lord for the opportunity to help with these new churches. Please pray for them as they enter their first “summer slump.” Many times, the first summer for a new church is a difficult time. During the first week of May,...

Dear Pastor, Psalm 133:1 says, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” Over the years, I have seen the Lord do some wonderful things because of churches working together in unity to reproduce a new church. This month is another example of this wonderful verse of Scripture. In Cranberry, PA, thirteen churches attended...

Dear Pastor, Please forgive me for the tardiness of this letter. I usually try to get it out by the first of the month, but it was delayed by a church plant and several medical appointments. We had a wonderful meeting in Orangeville, Ontario. The Lord blessed the meetings, and I was happy to be in the pulpit again preaching the Get-Acquainted...

The past few weeks have been quite difficult on Beth and me. Many of you heard about Matt and Lana Cretzman and the accident in North Carolina where their three year old daughter was killed.  Matt and Lana are dear friends of ours. On the same day of their accident, one of our best friends passed away here in Canada....

Spring is just weeks away and with it comes new church plants around the country.  This spring, we have three churches we are helping reproduce new churches.  The first will be in Orangeville, ON, in early April followed by one in Cranberry, PA, two weeks later. The third church plant will be in Vernon, BC, in early May. Lord willing,...

We hope you had a wonderful end to 2011 and a great beginning to 2012.  The beginning of a New Year always brings reflections from the past year and projections for the New Year. For us, we are thankful that we were able to spend another Christmas with our children and grandchildren.  As we began 2011, we had no idea what...

This fall was one of the best church planting seasons we have ever had. We had five church plants over a six week period and every one was well attended and supported by local churches.  All the new churches are doing well and had great Grand Opening Sundays.  I am very thankful for the wonderful staff the Lord has given...

Psalm 133:1 says, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”  During September our ministry was involved in four new church plants in Canada and the United States. Churches were planted in Belleville, ON; Warrenton, MO; Waconia, MN; and Athens, OH.  Thankfully a church planter did not have to begin his ministry alone...
