Monthly Letters

Dear Friends in Christ, I can say with confidence, “Spring is almost here!” For the past several weekends we have seen measurable snowfall. We have received from 1-7” each weekend. This past weekend, Virginia, MN, was hit with thirty-two inches of snow. Although cold temps hang on, things are heating up spiritually as churches are birthed. In...

Dear Friend, Thank you so much for praying for our ministry this month and for the issues facing us. Mrs. Steven is doing well with the knee replacement and should be back on her feet in a few weeks. Brother Steven is doing pretty well, but is still tired from all the radiation he has taken. I am doing better...

Dear Friends, Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised! God has been so gracious to us and enabled us to keep up with every task. After waiting for the radiation from the seeding to dissipate from my body, I began six weeks of daily external radiation. Two weeks into the radiation, my oncologist said I...

Dear Friend, What a blessed time the Christmas holidays were to us. They can be a perplexing time for many Christians. It is easy to see the hypocrisy and even paganism involved, but I am a firm believer in the incarnation. What a miraculous thing to know that the God of the universe gave up the glory...

Dear Friend, For the entire BCPM family, I want to extend Christmas greetings to you. We will be praying that this Christmas season will be one filled with joy and happiness for each of you. We also will be praying that the Lord will use you as you witness for Him during this time of the year. This...

Dear Friends, We approach that time of year when we review once again the blessing of how God provided the payment for our sins. As we read the exciting Christmas story from Scripture, we come to a verse in Luke 2:7 that has a very familiar ring to it. “And she brought forth her firstborn son, and...

Dear Friend, Beth and I want to thank each of you that have called, sent cards, emailed and prayed for us. We have been so encouraged by your care and concern for us and our family. We are so thankful to the Lord for how He has worked in our lives and for His faithfulness to us through the...
