Dr. Earl Jessup

Dear Friend, I have started meetings again and I must say it was very difficult to leave home and begin to travel again. It was especially difficult because I had to leave Beth at home due to her knee surgery. She had arthroscopic knee surgery on January 16 and is doing fine. She has physiotherapy on the knee...

Dear Friend, When I was younger, much younger, I was often told that as you get older the days and years pass so quickly. I did not believe it then, but I certainly do now. This year has rapidly passed by, and I realize there is much to do and little time to do it. We are so thankful for...

Dear Friend, “For unto you is born this day… a Saviour which is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:11) Other than a couple of wreaths and some garland around the columns at the front door, this is the only Christmas decoration we place outside our house. Several years ago I got fed up with all the huge lighting shows people were...

Dear Friend, This is a very important letter for our ministry. Within a couple of days, if not already, you will receive a brochure for our “Reaping the Harvest” offering for 2009. This offering is to replenish our Seed Bank for the coming year. The Seed Bank is completely empty, and we are using funds from the General Fund to...

Dear Friend, Please forgive me for not getting this letter out closer to the first of the month. It has been one of the busiest months of the ministry. There have been three churches and a grandson born, plus two mission conferences, and teaching at Ambassador Baptist College. Beth and I left home on September 2nd and did not return...

Dear Friend, We are already on the road this month as I write this letter. We left Toronto by air on September 2nd and we will not get back until September 29th. This is a four week trip by air which will take us to five different cities. Please pray for us as we spend the entire month on the...

Dear Friend, Fifteen years ago, on August 1, 1993, Baptist Church Planting Ministry came into existence. After praying for six months and talking with several pastors, Beth and I decided the Lord wanted us to begin a ministry helping churches reproduce churches. We had no idea where this adventure would lead us and we certainly didn’t know the Lord would...

Dear Friend, We praise the Lord for His continued blessings on this ministry. God has been so good to us. Even though we have faced some serious financial concerns over the past few months all the bills have been paid on time. We also praise the Lord for His safety to us as we travel. We are so thankful that...

Dear Friend, Praise the Lord for the safe arrival of another grandchild! Hudson (after Hudson Taylor) Thatcher Odell (after my father) Jessup arrived by C-section on Thursday, May 15, at about 5:00PM. He weighed 8 lbs 2 oz and everyone is doing fine. As you know, there was some concern about fluid on the brain during pregnancy, but everything seems...

Dear Friend, I just returned from the bladder specialist today, and I had another clear checkup with no new cancerous tumors. He told me if I go one more year without new tumors we can increase the period between checks to one year. That would be a great blessing, but we praise the Lord for His goodness to us with...
