Dear Pastors, Friends, and Prayer Partners:
Greetings from Victory Baptist Church, Beaver, WV. It was over 20 years ago that I first preached here and every trip is filled with good memories of God working in hearts, souls being saved, and friendships being made. Pastor Roberts recently was elected to the WV Senate and is wearing a variety of hats as he serves both his church and his constituents. It has been a blessing to spend time with him and his church family. Please pray for our final night this evening.
We spent Easter week in Ohio and I was privileged to speak for a service at our former home church, Newark Baptist Temple. Pastor Mark Falls is doing a good work and souls are being saved and added to the church. Bethlie and I speak at their Couple’s Retreat in August and I will be returning to preach another revival campaign in a few years. I am always encouraged by growing churches.
The coming weeks are super busy for our family. Our son Joshua graduates from West Coast Baptist College and will be joining the staff of Harvest Baptist in Camarillo, CA following his graduation. He will be marrying Bethany Pisney in June and our Abigail will be marrying David Adams in July. David and Abigail will continue to serve at Lancaster Baptist Church and West Coast Baptist College. Our Matthew is almost finished with his first year of Bible College and is preparing to spend the summer serving at Camp CoBeAc in Northern Michigan where he will be investing in many, many young people. Needless to say, we are pretty proud of our kids!
The coming weeks will also be super busy with a variety of ministry opportunities. Between now and the middle of August, we have meetings scheduled in Massachusetts, New York, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Will you begin praying for God to prepare the way and for many believers to be genuinely revived? Will you pray for souls to be saved? It is an incredible privilege to serve our Savior and His church. We are truly blessed!
Thanks for all you do for us. We are indebted for your friendship, prayers, and support.
Your sincere friend,
P.S. Please let us know if we can pray for your needs. We would be delighted to do so. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me at 740-973-3549.
