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...

Friends, The doctor came in this morning and told us that the CT scan shows no growth of the tumor in the lung and no new lesions found anywhere in the chest. He said this is good news in that we are holding our own on the cancer. The best news would have shown the tumor decreasing in size but at...

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...

I officially resigned as Pastor of Bethel Baptist Church on January 24th and started full time with BCPM.

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...

Dear Friends, It is hard to believe that after seven-and-a-half years of writing prayer letters, we are writing our last one. On January 24, Troy Baptist Temple in Troy, Ohio, voted to call me as the assistant pastor. We praise the Lord for His working in our lives and for His perfect timing. We thank the Lord that we will be...

Dear Praying Friends, On January 18th, Beth and I went to the hospital to begin chemo to try and stop the spread of metastatic bladder cancer.  I had a CT scan on the 14th and the doctor already had the results.  They found another tumor the size of a small grape in the middle lobe of the right lung. This...
