Monthly Letters

Dear Friend, I have waited for a couple of days into July to write for a couple of reasons. First of all, I have just returned from my appointment at the Cardiac Clinic and the pacemaker is working fine. The upper chamber of the heart is using the pacemaker around 12% of the time and the lower chamber is using...

Greetings to our Friends and Supporters, My, how things have a way of changing, but I praise God that He is changeless! When I last wrote I was in Ohio for the annual meeting of BCPM. After the meeting, I was to be at a class Dr. Jessup was taping for use in colleges on church planting. Before the class...

Dear Friend, You probably have never had one of the missionaries in which you invest start a prayer letter out this way, but here goes. I played golf this week for the first time in a year. Since I broke my back two years ago, I have been unable to really do very much. I made a decision about two...

Greetings in our Savior’s Name, It is with great joy that we greet you again as one of your missionaries. God has been so gracious this past month. Also, I write you on our 47th wedding anniversary. Although I am not at home with my bride, those years have been sweet. It is also a blessing at we...

Dear Friend, I want to thank you for praying for us this past month. We appreciate all the people who have called, emailed, and sent notes of encouragement. When I made calls this month, nearly every time, someone mentioned they were praying for my recovery. We appreciate so much the faithful prayer support of those concerned about our ministry and...

Dear Friends in Christ, “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God”…for Wooster, OH; Vermillion, OH; Mundelein, IL; Bathurst, N.B; Aberdeen, Scotland…“is, that they might be saved.” These are just a few of the communities that BCPM will co-labor in this year. How many are the lost and dying in these communities that have had no one...

Dear Friend, This has been one different month for us and the ministry. I do not like talking about the physical problems I encounter along the way, but it is important for you to know what the Lord is doing in my life. I had to return home from church plants in Ohio because of chest pain. Within two...

Dear Friend, Greetings in the Name of Our Resurrected Lord! One fourth of 2009 is now a part of history. The time since our last letter has once again fled, never to be lived again. As we count what has been accomplished for our Lord, we cannot but say it is so very little when there is...

Dear Friend, It was good to get away and get some rest during February. I did not realize until afterwards how helpful it would be for Beth and I to have some time to ourselves and also with some of our grandchildren. We are now prepared for a very busy spring. We have five church plants scheduled between now and...

Dear Friend, What a blessing it is to go through our prayer list each day and remember each of you before the Throne of Grace. The special times we have had with many of you are so precious, including the unexpected notes many send or the phone calls that are such an encouragement. Tuesday, March...
