I spent most of the day in prayer with my eyes closed trying to find relief from the pain with this eye. I look a site. It's kind of suspicious like my wife walloped me a good one. But she did..............n't. Ha!

Continue to pray much for me that I would heal. I'm just being still waiting on the Lord to release me again to get out and work.

Today I will study and pray and possibly be able to do more but will have to wait and see how I progress.

It's looks like we are going to get a shuttle bus. Our friends in Kentucky are going to give us a 24 passenger bus. It's a 88 diesel in good shape. We will have to reupholster some seats but other than that not real bad. Bro. Dave will go and get it next weeks Lord willing.

I started a book yesterday. Got about three pages wrote thus far.

I love each of you and keep telling others of Jesus and His love.

I am rejoicing in the good day on yesterday. All day long Christ was magnified in the singing, preaching, fellowshipping, and testifying. What a joy it is to have such a wonderful church here in Sanford. Last night we just had a good old fashioned testimony meeting. Glory!!!!

Today I'm not sure what I will do as I woke up around two with my left eye matted together. Looks like the pink eye to me. Everybody else has had it so it's it's my turn. My throat seems to be somewhat better so I praise the Lord for that. Still excited about the prospects of what this day holds and we will see how I begin to heal. I have put some drops in it.

Pray for me all week long but especially on Friday. I will be flying down to Raleigh to be part of a meeting emphasizing church planting and missions. This will be an all day meeting. I'm excited to see what the Lord is going to do in the meeting.

I had a great day at the airport on yesterday. I ended up running the unicom frequency and directing planes in the morning. In the afternoon we had a picnic at the ministry hanger. It was a blessing and the fellowship was wonderful.

I studied for a little while in the afternoon and then made our way up to Baldwin to deliver the little surprise I have been working on for the last few weeks. What a blessing to be part of that service. May the Gospel of Christ continue to be preached there in that community. I love you Pastor Kindred, keep up the good work.

Today, it's CHURCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Glory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "Where the Spirit of the Lord is their is liberty."!!!! OH for the touch of the Holy Ghost to preach the Word of God. I'm praying for a powerful day of ministry. Pray that souls are saved and the saints of God are encouraged!!!!!

God is good! He is greatly to be praised! Let all the saints rejoice this morning in His faithfulness. "Having food and raiment let us therewith be content." "I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth." May the Lord help us to never lose our attitude of gratitude.

My day yesterday was blessed with finishing up the pulpit and doing some yard work around the farm. I also was able to do some visiting as I was out and about. The discipleship was good last night as I taught on the Will of God. All of the people I am discipling are doing wonderful and growing in the Lord.

Today I will be busy with airport stuff. The airshow is today along with a cookout at the hanger. This afternoon I have a special thing to attend which I'm looking forward to. Also in the mix I will be studying this morning. I'm looking forward to a powerful day on tommorow. May the power of the Holy Spirit move in our services.

God Bless each of you for your care for this preacher.

The Lord blessed once again on yesterday. I worked all morning on the pulpit sanding and preparing it for poly. As of last night my dad had four coats of poly on it. It's looking real nice. What a thrill to be able to invest in the gospel ministry in this way.

After that I went to the airport arount 2:30 and stayed there working till 9. It was encouraging to see progress all around. I worked on some parts that mount our new sun visors in. Lord willing they will get riveted today and that job will be complete.

Today I will be busy in the work of the ministry all day long with studying, visiting, message preparation, pulpit work, airport work and discipleship tonight. Pray that God would give me supernatural strength to be faithful to Him. What a joy to serve!!!

My day was spent yesterday in the wood working shop. Kind of boring to update you on, but I will say alot of work got done. I started with nothing but pieces of wood and then by the end of the day had a complete pulpit. My back was very sore from standing on the concrete all day. Praise God for the progress. Today I will start the finishing progress which usually takes days to complete.

Also I did find some time to make a couple parts in a machine shop for the plane. I will deliver those today and see if we can't make them work for the rosen sun visors for the 402.

Our prayer meeting last night was wonderful. To God be the glory for what He is doing. I appreciate all those that came out. Looks like we had over 60 people out which really encouraged me. We are trusting the Lord to work out all the details.

Today I am going to finish up my devotions, sand the pulpit some more, spray the poly on the pulpit, work at airport, and may even find time for a little golf. All work no play hmmmmmmm????

God Bless everyone of you that love us and pray for us. Your a great blessing to me.

Oh what a Saviour!!! He is so wonderful. I bless His Name in this early morning hour for His faithfulness to me. Even though their has been many times in my life when I have not been faithful still yet He abides faithful. Glory to God for the Lamb of God. We must also bless the Name of the Lord today for the power of the Holy Spirit. He said, when I go away I will not leave you comfortless!! The power of the Holy Spirit fills us to be able to do the service of the Lord. Whether it be soul winning, teaching, preaching, or simply living out the truths of the Word of God it's Him!!!! Bless the Lord oh my soul and all that is within me bless His Holy Name!

My day was blessed all day long on yesterday. I had a good time of study and devotions in the morning. After that I had the privilage to play in a Pro-Am in Auburn Maine. That was good and I played the best I had all year. When I got home a little after two I did some visiting. Then I worked on my pulpit projects. They are coming along good. I should be able to put the first coat of poly on one of them today.

Our service with Crown College was blessed last night. The Lord be praised for meeting with us. The boys sang wonderful and Dr. Chrighton just let er rip. My what a message out of Isiah 40:31. My heart breaks for people that are not faithful to the Lord and His church. I just sat there soaking it up and enjoying the preaching of the Word of God.

Today I'm studying, praying, visiting, working in my shop and at the airport on the windows.

Don't forget tonight that we are having a prayer meeting at the Methodist Church. We will be praying that God's will be done about the future of our church in locating there!! Come expecting God to do something wonderful in our midst.Pastor Todd Bell

I praise the Lord this morning for the air to breathe. He alone has given me the breath to Praise His Name. I started my morning out thanking Him for all that He has done for me. Of course when I say all that would take a life time but I do thank Him for so much.

I had a very productive day at the hanger on Monday. The Lord helped all of us to work good together to get a lot accomplished. I praise the Lord for the help and leadership of Bro. Don and all the crew that came out. Their was Bro. Don, Phillip, Dave, Mr. Mack, Mrs. Ann and Nick. I say Glory!

I came home and did some more work on the pulpits I am making. Lord willing I will have them finished soon.

Today I am studying this morning and then I will go to Auburn to be part of a Pro-Am tournament. I'm looking forward to being able to play with our professional at our club in Sanford. Pray that God would continue to help me to be a blessing and a witness.

What a wonderful Lords day yesterday. Praise God for His blessings on the services all day long. The Sunday school was excellent with Bro. Dave teaching on the state of the church. In the morning service I preached out of Ephesians 6 on Fathers bringing up our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord!! What a powerful time we had. Last night we had tag team preaching with five men of God letting er rip. Afterwards we had a time of fellowship for a newly married couple in our church. To God be the Glory great things He hath done.

Today I will be at the airport working most of the day on the planes. I'm looking forward to a great time of fellowship.

I am a little slower this morning updating the blog. I have officially signed up to be a twitter. Your welcome to go to twitter.com and become a follower. I want to be up with the times and I thought it would be a good way to keep us all connected in the ministry. For example, if you sign up and follow me, everytime I update my account you immediately get a text. So instead of me praying right then for something that comes up I can tweet it to everyone. I sense that this can be used as a great tool for the ministry to propigate the gospel in an even greater way.

My day was blessed yesterday with work at the airport in the morning. After that I started the pulpit. I didn't need any help on yesterday but I will in a few days. Starting the pulpits is a little slower because I have to glue up boards and surface the material. It is sort of a one man job per the video that you see on the blog today. I ran the excavator for almost three hours till 9 p.m. last night and called it a day.

Today I'm looking foward to studying and praying, marrying a new couple, working at airport, digging in the field, visiting, making a pulpit and entertaining some new guests arriving this afternoon. Thank you for your prayers for me.

I praise the Lord for the good day I had on yesterday. In the morning I spent some time in devotions here at the house. I also fellowshipped some with the Stanley family that stayed with us overnight. What a joy it is to see them doing so good and serving the Lord. After that Benjamin and I got a few holes of golf in. In the afternoon I went to a local machine shop and made a part for the milling machine at the airport. It's always a blessing to run machines and make things with your hands. I delivered the part to the airport and it seems to be just what they need. My evening was spent in discipleship with the Berard family. It has been over a month since it worked out for us to have this. I was kind of jealous about having it so I went focused and nothing got in our way. We had a good time studying on the Judgement seat of Christ. When I got home around 8 the Excavator had arrived. I put it behind the house and now it's ready to work the property. Pray much as we do all the paper work to file for mom and dads new house. It's going to be exciting when it all takes place. The yard is going to be beautiful and their house will be to.

Today I spend half the day at the airport and the other half of the day in my shop making pulpits. Anybody want to help me make pulpits???? I have a very busy day planned. I will prioritize my devotions this morning and then be out the door!!

The morning air is crisp as I type out this blog. It's a cool 48 degrees and I love mornings that are like this. It looks like it's going to rain for the next several days. I'm so glad I can trust the One who is in control to take care and give us just exactly what we need.

My day yesterday was jam packed with ministry all day long. I appreciate all the opportunities the Lord gave me to talk to people about the gospel. What a joy and delight it was for our family to host the Stanley family from Medway. I thank God for the privilege the Lord gave us many years ago of leading this family to Christ. What a beautiful family God has blessed them with. The scriptures declare, "Great is thy faithfulness"!!!! When you look around and see families that have been saved as a result of your obedience to come to an area it makes you almost not be able to contain yourself. Glory!!!!!!!!!! Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!!! Bless the Lord!!!!!

Our services last night were blessed of God. I do not take for granted the blessings of God. I am very grateful for what He is doing in our midst. I started a series last night on Becoming a Fisher of Men. The solo specials and instrument specials were a great blessing as we worshipped the Lord together in our services. At the end of the services we had a short men's meeting and they agreed to help us out with our automobile repairs. Our support is not what it needs to be so we are not able to budget for car repairs. We will be able to one day but until then the men agreed 100% to take care of it. What a blessing to have the relationship that we at Calvary have. Glory!!!! Our choir practice was a great blessing. We are looking forward to singing two special songs for the Fourth of July service. Our orchestra should be ready for it's first song in about a month. What a joy it is to see what God is doing!!!

I'm excited about the opportunities to serve the Lord Jesus Christ today. We have visitation and soul winning planned. Also I want to encourage an area pastor by taking him out for lunch. Lord willing I will fly somewhere and encourage them today. Also I will be working at the airport with Don some. Tonight we have discipleship so it will be a very busy day in the Lord!! Praise the Lord for His blessings!!!!!!!

Love all of you

Greetings in Jesus Name

It's a cool crisp 39 degrees outside this morning as I type this blog. I noticed when I got up that the heat was on. Well, this is Maine and one of few states that you can get frost bit and sun burned all in the same day.

My day was blessed yesterday with visiting and soul-winning in the morning. The Lord helped me as I witnessed to several people. After that I flew Josh up to Portland to catch his flight back to Kentucky. He was a blessing to have around and I pray he learned alot about the ministry and aviation while being here. While in Portland Bro.Chrighton called me from Crown College and wanted the quartet he had with him to fly a little. I took them up a couple of times in the area and they loved it. I let each of them fly a bit and I think we may have some more pilots on our hands. I'm looking forward to having them on next Tuesday night for a worship service.

Today I'm excited about our evening service and preparing for it. Also I will be visiting, working at the hanger, and starting to make pulpits. I need to make three of them. That in and of itself will keep me very busy for the next little while.

Have a glorious day.

What a glorious day the Lord has given us to serve Him. Of course everyday is a glorious day to serve the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Are you grateful today for what Jesus Christ has done for you? An attitude of gratitude is a conscious decision that we must make in our life. Why not just put your hands high up in the air right now and bless the Name of the Lord for all He has done for you and is doing for you and will do for you!!!! Glory!!!! Whoopee!!!! As some have said before Hot Dog!!!!

I had a great time yesterday serving the Lord. Bro. Alec Kindred, Bro. Josh, Benjamin and myself went to the hanger and worked all morning. We got alot accomplished on the planes. After lunch I went and paid for the the Hitachi Excavator. Lord willing it will be delivered here on Thursday and we will get to the task of digging stumps and readying dad's house to be built. Pray much that everything will go smooth. I went back to the airport and finished putting in the pilots side window. What a blessing to check another one off the list. Now we only have three left. Were waiting for the Rosen sun visors to come and then we will finish putting in the rest of the windows. My boy and I played nine holes of golf and then my beautiful wife cooked a huge evening meal. After that we went and picked up our van that had it's windshield replaced. We got home around 9:30 and called it a day. A good 16 hours of blessing for the King!!!!!

Pray much for me today as I will be busy about the Father's Buisness all day long. I'll let you know how it goes on tommorow. I will be at the airport, visting, counseling and soul winning today.

I praise the Lord for a wonderful morning. As I look out I see a cool foggy morning with a temperature of around 52 degrees. It looks like the clouds may break today and when they do it will pro bally warm up a bit. I'm excited about the week that God is going to give us.

Yesterday was a tremendous day at our church. In the morning service we had to put out chairs we had so many out. How thrilling it is to see the church packed out. The Spirit of God was faithful to do his work of convicting hearts in the meeting. I appreciate Him speaking to me and challenging me to be all I can be for my Saviour.

Also, in the evening service we had a good crowd with a special missionary with us from Scotland. I praise the Lord for the love our people have for missions. We were able to help this missionary out with a love offering of 281 dollars. I know God is blessing us because we love missionaries. May the Lord continue to pour out his power on our church as we reach souls for Him.

I'm confident that the Lord moved in our other churches on yesterday to. The Isbells are doing good in the country of Ukraine and we rejoice in those that have recently been saved. Bro. Schoppe is enjoying himself there on the island of Islesboro Maine. What a delight it is to be busy about our Fathers business of starting more churches and seeing souls saved.

I'm looking forward to a powerful week of ministry here in our town. It looks like all week long we will be involved in the work of the ministry of souls, discipleship, evangelizing, and working at the hanger! Glory to God for His blessings!!!!!

I had a great day on yesterday. I studied and exercised in the morning before going to Soul Winning Visitation. At 10 we had church wide visitation and it was a real blessing to be able to go out and share the gospel with people. Their are so many thousands of people around us that need the gospel. What a joy and delight to preach Christ to the multitudes and offer them hope. We came home and grabbed a quick bite to eat and then we went off to the airport to fly with Josh. He took us to a little grass strip in Hampton N.H. While there we got an ice cream cone and witnessed to the lady getting me the cone. She said I know you, our church supports you at Merrimack. That was kind of neat to meet her. She knew all about our aviation ministry. You just got to love it knowing the Lord orders our steps. From there we went down to Newburyport where George Whitefield preached for years and then back home to Sanford. Josh did a good job flying and controlling the Cherokee Six. My boy and I found enough time to go out and exercise for a little while on the golf course playing nine holes. My wife had a lovely meal planned for us when I got home. What a blessing she is. I love her so much and I don't know how I would make it without her. To close out the night we both went on a little motorcycle ride before retiring. It's always relaxing to go out and drive the country roads and get a deeper burden for those around us that need Christ.

Thank you for your prayers.

I appreciate all the goodness of our God. If we got what we just deserve we would all be in hell. I'm glad I'm saved and washed in His Blood.

Further I'm not only glad that I have been converted but also I'm thrilled that He called me into the gospel ministry. I often joke and say I don't know what I would do if I had to work but the truth is I am very busy for Jesus Christ. I usually start early in the morning and end late at night.

I also am constrained today by His great love. It is the love of God that constrains us to go forth with the glorious gospel message. Today we will do just that this morning as we go and share the gospel with our town. I'm looking forward to giving out gospel tracts and opening my Bible to tell others how they can know Christ.

Today I sit here in my study challenged by the great task that the God of Heaven has called us to. May He help each of us to not slacken, soften, or become sad through the circumstances of life but to stand strong for Him!!

Greetings in Jesus Name

The Lord blessed all day long on yesterday as I had a very busy day. Started out early with morning devotions. Benjamin and I were on the golf course playing nine holes of golf at 6:45 a.m. After that we farmed still 11:30 helping our neighbour out. Then we had some visitors from N.C. that stopped in so we showed them all that God was doing in the ministry here. Then back down to the airport to work on the windows of the C402. While we were there President Bush flew in from Texas. That was kind of neat to see him and Barbara again. They flew up to Number 41's (George Bush senior) 85th birthday. I came home after that and cooked supper on the grill. By then mom and dad finally made it and we had a meal together, a little discipleship together with Ron and Barbara (practical discipleship last night) and then went over and helped mom and dad unpack. Also Bro. Mack and his wife showed up. They will be staying with us for around two months helping us out in the ministry. This place is hopping with activity. I feel like a tick in a yo-yo!! Very busy day but I did get alot accomplished.

Today I'm studying in my office and then I will go to the airport and work all day. We need to do our best to go at it and get that plane back together. Also after working all day at the airport we will have discipleship tonight with a family from our church that has 7 kids. Their will probally be over 20 people for supper tonight. Come on down we have plenty for you to.

What a great day on yesterday. I enjoyed my early morning study time alone in quietness. After that I had several meetings and some visitation to do at the hospital and other places. I changed my clothes and went farming until noon. Our family planted cucumbers on yesterday. The rest of the day I studied and spent some time mentoring Bro. Josh. We both enjoyed our time flying the Cessna 150.
At 6 our family went off to church for a glorious service. I praise the Lord that He has given me the privilege to be part of an old fashioned Baptist Church. The Lord blessed as I preached on Aquilla and Priscilla, a family that made a difference in their day. I challenged the church to have families that are holy and make a difference in our day. It was a great time and we did have a good turnout. Their must have been around 70 people there. Glory to God for what He is doing!!

Today we will be doing more of the work of the ministry with work around the farm, visiting, studying,flying,putting windows in the plane,golfing,discipling and loving on my family. I think when you put these all together you have a day full of activity. Amen and Amen!!

I had a glorious day on yesterday. I worked a little on the pilots side window. I had to trim it and now I need to knotch out where the screws go. I enjoyed hanging around with my Abigail. She is a hard worker and loves to go to the airport to help.

After that my boy and I got in 18 holes of golf. I played the best I have played all year with four birdies. He played pretty good to but you guessed it, I still beat him.

After supper Josh and I went on a cross country flight to three airports. He is doing a wonderful job. It was a great night to fly with calm winds and weather. Our weather is turning cool now for the next few days with a tempature now of 52 degrees.

Today our whole family is going to help our neighbour out of a jam and plant some tomatoes. It will be fun to work together. Also today I am studying my Bible and spending time in devotions. I am going to try to get one of the windows in the airplane to. As always it will be a busy day of ministry and outreach. Thank you for your prayers.

Our day was blessed yesterday with Bro. Bob Holmes. He preached great messages and the altars were full at the end of the service. Praise the Lord for all He did throughout the morning service. In the afternoon none of us had a chance to beat him. I think he took it easy on us but still their was no chance we could win. Praise the Lord for the good day. We had a few visitors come out for the meeting but over all our church was pretty full all services. Praise be to God for all He is doing in our local church.

I flew up and met with a pastor in Wiscasset in the afternoon and had a good time of fellowship. I praise the Lord for traveling mercies in the airplane up there and back.

Last night I found the grave marker of an old Baptist preacher that use to pastor the First Baptist Church of Sanford back in the last 1700's. That was kind of neat but the only thing the marker said was Rev. No words that spoke of him or his life. It was neat to locate it. It was out in the woods about 700 yards off the road.

I'm looking forward to a powerful day of ministry here in town. I will be working at the airport some today on the windows. I also plan on visiting and sharing the gospel of Christ everywhere I go. Benjamin and I are going to go golfing this afternoon. Praise the Lord that He called our family here to preach the gospel and tell sinners that Jesus Saves.

Jesus is the sweetest Name I know!!! What a wonderful day the Lord has blessed us with. The tempature is 55 and the sun is getting ready to be seen through the clouds. This is the day that we congregate together at local churches across the world and worship our Saviour. I'm so grateful that He is not in that tomb but arose victorious over death hell and grave. Well, Glory to God!!!! Amen!!!! Hallelujah!!!!!

I hope everybody saw our own Bro. Floyd on the news last night. What a great job he did in the interview as our community honored those that fought at Normandy. I'm glad the Lord has given me the privilage to know such a brave man. I thank God for people like Floyd. Freedom isn't free and he's one of the ones that has helped us to have freedom.

My day was filled yesterday with all kind of things. In the morning I studied and prayed and ask God to move in power and glory on my life and the church. He is doing just that but I am keenly aware and my daily need to seek His face. At 10 we had 31 people show up to go out soul winning. What a time we had as we knocked doors and shared the gospel. Glory!!!!!!!!!!!!! In the afternoon I did some honey do stuff as you will see in the picture. I also found time to take Josh up and train him a little in the Cessna 150. What a blessing he is to our family and we are enjoying having him here with us these two weeks. After that my wife and I went on a date on the motorbike. Praise the Lord for the good time we had together.

I'm a looking forward to our services today with Evangelist Bob Holmes. We are asking God to give us many souls that are saved and lives that are changed as a result of the gospel going forth. Anyone in the area should come out and be a part of the event. After the morning service we are going to play volleyball against him and then have an afternoon service in the park.

Also we will be handing out out fliers talking about our big day on tomorrow. Bro. Bob Holmes the one man volley ball team will be with us preaching. We are looking forward to a powerful day in the Lord.

My day yesterday was blessed as I ministered the Word of God. I enjoyed pastoring one of our members yesterday morning. Then my wife and I went on a date out to eat with a gentleman from our church. He took us out and what a blessing it is to know you are loved. After that I flew the little Cessna 150 a couple times to try to charge the battery. I went home and picked up Josh Vandercoi and we flew for around an hour. He did a great job and it was a joy to teach him some things.

I had been waiting for the lift from Taylor Rental for a long time and they called yesterday and said they had it back. So Ron Berard and I put up my new chimney. The wood boiler is now back on-line heating our water and saving us money. Praise the Lord for this because we were about ready to run out of oil.

Last night we also spent sometime in discipleship with a family in our church. We had 21 for dinner last night. Praise the Lord for the good time we had together.

Thank you for your prayers for us. We do covet them.

I appreciate all of you that prayed for me on yesterday. The Lord blessed with the funeral of Phyllis Phaup. What a great lady she was. I'm looking forward to spending an eternity together with her and of course my Jesus who bled and died on Calvary for my sins. The services and such took up most of the day.

My boy and I went out for about an hour and a half and played nine holes of golf. That was relaxing after the funeral stuff of the morning and afternoon.

Next we went to the airport and put in another four hours of work on the planes. Most people stayed until 9 p.m. We ended up having around 20 or so people running around and working. I praise the Lord for all that He allowed us to accomplish.

Today I will be in my study in the morning. Also I will be flying with Josh today somewhere. Then I plan on working around the yard for Mrs. Amy. Tonight we have discipleship with the Fitzgeralds so our house will be full with around 20 or more people in it. A busy day of ministry planned. Praise the Lord for the oppurtunity to serve.

I had a great day on yesterday. My morning was spent in my study preparing for the evening at the House of God. The services were a great blessing. I appreciate the Lord helping me to share my burden that the Mission of Missions is the local churches responsibility. May the God of Heaven help us to carry out His orders and be faithful to win souls and start other churches.

Josh and I spent several hours putting in windows on the Cessna 402. The picture shows what we got done on yesterday. What a blessing to be able to get both sides finished. Now we can concentrate on the pilot and co-pilot and the window job will be complete. Praise the Lord for all that is getting done.

Pray much for me today as Mrs. Dorothy, Miss Eleanor and myself minister at the funeral of Phyllis Phaup here in town. Pray that the power of God will be our portion and the Lord will grant liberty to share the scriptures and comfort the family. I'm looking forward to a time of rejoicing in celebration of her life.

Also today I will work at the airport some and help my wife with some chores around the house.

Thank you in advance for your prayers.

My day was very busy on yesterday. I took a bunch of phone calls in the morning which kept me hopping. In the ministry many times you stay busy just with the phone. I also met with Brother Phaup. I will be the preacher at his mothers funeral on Thursday Morning. In the afternoon I picked up Josh from Kentucky at the PWM airport. From there I went to my men's league and had a good time around a bunch of the guys from town. It was for sure a full day of ministry and I praise God for all He did in allowing me to be around people and share the good news.

Today I'm in my study early preparing for tonight and having personal study. I always look forward with great anticipation to what God has in store on these Wednesday nights. It's so good to have an old fashioned church where we can go and just go to meeting. Pray much that the Power of God would be our portion today as we serve Him. Also I plan to work at the airport some and around the yard to help my beautiful wife. We are suppose to have visitors tonight for the meeting. Pray they get saved and their lives are changed for the Glory of God.

Benjamin and the team up on the roof screwing the panels down!! That's Fred also on roof with Phillip and TJ working off of staging.
Those balls you see between Benjamin are our drives. They were two feet apart. Like father like son!

My day started very early yesterday as the team from Calvary prepared to go and help Bro. Stoeber up in Westbrook. The Lord gave us another wonderful day of work and fellowship as we all helped to put the roof on their building. What a blessing for our men to work together and be a blessing. I appreciate all of those that went and were an encouragement to Pastor Stoeber.

When we got home I had a chance to go and play golf with my boy. We had a good time as usual.

Several times throughout the day I had an opportunity to share gospel literature with people and talk to them of the gospel. Others I invited out to our meeting on Sunday with the one man volleyball team. I praise the Lord for the boldness and utterance that He gave to me.

As you pray lift, pray for a lady at Pizza Hut that said she is coming on Wednesday to church. Pray the Lord touch her and save her before it is eternally to late.

I'm looking forward to study, visiting, working at hanger, and picking up Josh from Kentucky today. He will be with us for two weeks as we spend time mentoring him.

Oh how wonderful it is to be on this mission field serving our Lord!!!! Glory!!!

This is the team we took to the island yesterday. The pilot was taking the picture!!

Wow!!! What a day yesterday. We had a great time in Sunday School and the morning service. The service was packed and we baptized three after the morning service. The Spirit of God was moving and working all through the meetings on yesterday. What a thrill it is to see this and I bless the Lord for His faithfulness. I really sense that God is putting things together for us to move to another place in His timing. After the morning service we flew to Islesboro and were once again blessed by the preaching of Greg. It was stirring!! On the way back I ran into thunderstorms and had to put the plane down at Wiscasset. God had ordered that storm because David at that airport needed some encouragement. We ended up having a mini worship service their in the FBO building. He said he believed it was the first of that kind there. The Lord moved as we sang the hymns of faith and had a prayer meeting. Glory to God for Him ordering this. After our meeting the Thunderstorm had passed through and we were on our way back to Sanford. We were 30 minutes late for the service but it all worked out. God once again moved in power and glory in the Sunday night service. Oh how I bless His Name for all He is doing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Glory to God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Someone hold my mules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whoopee!!!!!!!!!!!!!
