Monthly Letters

It is exciting and a thrill to see God work. Over the last few weeks I have seen God provide, protect, and prosper His work as only He can do. It is an encouragement to know that God is still on the throne and willing to use surrendered people to carry out his great commission in church planting. Our family was...

I must admit that I am not comfortable beginning our prayer letter with my health problems.  I really do not want you to think that because of my situation, we cannot carry on this ministry.  Thankfully, the Lord has given us a wonderful team of leaders that can continue to keep everything on track even when I may not be...

Finally, it looks like spring is springing.  We had our doubts after the long, long winter.  The grass is green, except for the yellow of the dandelions, and shrubs are starting to sprout the evidence of winter survival! God is still answering prayers, and the church planting continues with one plant now complete in Afton, VA.  Satan tried to hinder, but...

We are thankful for all those who sacrifice for LORD’s work. It would be impossible to do our ministry without the help of the LORD through many churches. We know that fruit will abound to your account. The month of March has been a busy one. When we were home, there were many opportunities for us to serve in Lighthouse Baptist...

Many April Fools jokes have been played on us by grandchildren as we enter this new month.  I am reminded by the Apostle Paul, that I am to be willing to be considered a “fool” for Christ.  I am so foolish that I believe that local Baptist churches have the answers we need today.  Answers for a sinful world- politically,...

With the arrival of spring, our ministry begins the work of helping churches with the Get-Acquainted Meetings for new churches. This spring is unusually slow with only one church plant. Bethel Baptist Church is being planted in Afton, Virginia. The GAM is planned for April 17-21, and the John/Romans are scheduled to be delivered soon for this meeting.  Pastor James...

One more month closer to the return of our Blessed Saviour.  The church needs a revival of seeing the need of planting churches.  We often decry the moral decay that we see across our nation and the globe.  Is it not amazing that in the early years even with the moral depravity of the governments about them the Scriptures state...

In January 2010, doctors gave me 12-14 months to live if I took chemo. As you know, I decided not to take it.  This month is the fourteenth month since that prognosis. We praise the Lord for His goodness to us, and we are thankful for God giving this trial to us.  We have learned so many lessons from this. ...

The month of February started with a wonderful eight day mission’s conference at South Haven Baptist Church in Springfield, TN. Pastor Gagliano and the church members are doing a great job of emphasizing missions. We also spent most of the month back in South Florida at Liberty Baptist church of Sarasota and Bethel Baptist Church of North Port. Liberty is...

"Praying always… that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the Gospel. (Eph. 6:18,19) It was exciting to lead a young man named Robbie to the LORD at the beginning of Feb. He has been coming quite faithfully to Lighthouse Baptist Church since. Please pray for his spiritual growth and that we’ll be able to also...
