  It has been a wonderful few weeks as we saw the birthing of two churches. Mid-April was the birthing of Gethsemane Baptist Church reproduced by Open Door Baptist Church in Lima, OH. We have just finished assisting Pastor Rick Perrine and the Ripley Baptist Church in Ripley, WV, as they reproduced the church in Petersburg, WV, in spite of Bro. Rowland...

  The month has flown by again. There have been many blessings from God to share. Last month we shared the blessing of being with the Midwest Bible Baptist Church in Rochester, MN. They were preparing to distribute 5000 invitations to the services on Easter. Folks from the church labored for many hours to make those distributions. Easter Sunday, the Lord...

Late in January, a group of pastors met at the Rockford Baptist Church in Rockford, MN, for some preaching and to spend some time in prayer for the State of Minnesota.

I want that to be the testimony of my life. It is a blessing to...

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...
