Monthly Letters

Dear Praying Friends, Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. (Eph. 1:2)  Thank you for your continued prayers for our family and investment in our ministry. In the past two months we have done various work projects at two churches, in addition to our deputation meetings.  We assisted Lighthouse Baptist Church in Baxter,...

Dear Friend of BCPM, This past month proved to be very fruitful with BCPM helping several church plants. I decided to go to the reproducing of the Solid Rock Baptist Church in Bellefontaine, Ohio, and try to preach several nights. The meetings started on April 18, but I was not there for the first night. I was preaching in a mission's...

Dear Friends in Christ, Greetings in the name of our precious Lord and Saviour! April has been a busy month, but blessed. At the last minute, we got the travel trailer out of storage. The weather turned so nice it was only natural to take it rather than use motels. I had the opportunity to speak to the Will County Baptist Church...

Dear Faithful Co-laborers, Thank you so much for all your prayer and encouragement.  Thank you for your faithfulness month-by-month in support.  It is an honor to represent you as we see churches planted for the glory of God. The month started with bringing a report to our supporting church in Marion, IA. We did not get to visit with Pastor Ballard due...

Dear Friends of BCPM, At the end of March, Beth and I returned to Oasis of Hope in Tijuana, Mexico, for another week of treatment.  While there they did another CT scan of my chest, and we praise the Lord that the tumor in my right lung has remained the same size for the past two months. We know this is...

Dear Friend, We have now been on the road for eight weeks and have had the opportunity of presenting BCPM in ten more churches. We have been encouraged by the responses of these churches in getting a burden to reproduce more churches. If these burdens are put into action, we would have no problem with reaching the world with the gospel...

Dear Friends, Beth and I want to thank you so much for all the calls, cards, emails, and especially for all those who have prayed for us these last months. We know that God hears and answers prayer, and we believe He has in our case.  We are humbled by your care and concern for us. We have seen God’s hand...

Dear Friends, The last several weeks have been a tremendous time of transition for our family. I officially resigned as Pastor of Bethel Baptist Church on January 24th and started full time with BCPM. The installment services went well and our church is in good hands with the new pastor Mark Knoedler. God gave us seven fruitful years at Bethel, and...

Dear Fellow Christians, It is a blessing to know that spring follows winter!  We are ready for the transition. One challenge to being closer to home in the winter is the amount of snow fall and snow removal.  There has been adequate for this year.  The snow blower purchased this winter has paid for itself at the rate our “snow removal...

Dear Praying and Caring Friends, God has been so gracious to each and every team member of BCPM.  As the Scripture tells us in Psalm 127:1, “Except the Lord, build the house, they labour in vain that build it.”  With the extreme weather all across this great nation, each one has had safety for which we are so thankful.  Minnesota usually...
