Greetings in Jesus Name

I pray you are having a wonderful day. The Lord has been good to each of us and for that we are eternally grateful.

What a great service we had last night. Our church was privileged to have a missionary with us to Trinidad. His presentation was a blessing. I also preached last night about be Partners in the Ministry. The God of Heaven has really been using the book of Philippians in my life these last few weeks. I enjoying reading through the book a few times a day. I haven't heard from anyone yet, did you accept the challenge to read through it with me morning and evening?

The Lord blessed in going to Canada yesterday. I still find it hard to think about how fast everything is. I left Portland at nine and was back clearing customs at 12:15p.m. Wow, now that's fast travel. Looks like I am going to do it one more time today. Pray for our travels that God would be glorified as we fly and in all the people we meet. I desire to win souls and get out the gospel everywhere we go.

Other than all of that I spent the rest of the day studying and preparing for messages.

I thrilled about the opportunities that are available for service tonight. Our family is going to Lynn Massachusetts with several families from our church. We will be singing and helping out in the revival service there. There will be a group at the hanger also tonight working on airplanes. Pray that we have a wonderful time doing the work of the ministry.

I must deliver this pulpit tomorrow. Anybody want to fly down to Massachusetts with me?

I had a great day all day long yesterday. To God be the Glory great things He has done.

I put on a few pictures of our early morning time with a family from Massachusetts that visited us on Sunday night. We had wonderful fellowship together.

Our revival meeting in Augusta was wonderful last night. Praise the Lord for how He moved and helped us.

Pray for me today as we go to New Brunswick and back that we would have traveling mercies.

Greetings in Jesus Name I bless the Lord this morning for His salvation. I glad I know who Jesus is. So many in our country and around the world have never heard his name. Oh to get the Gospel out to a lost and dying world before it is everylasting to late. Continue to pray for us as we reach souls in this area.

I had a good time yesterday catching up on chores around the house and trying to finish the pulpit for Bro. Dave Short. I should be done with it today or tommorow.

Cutting wood it always something I will be doing being that we heat our water and house with it. So I was busy doing that yesterday with Miss Eleanor helping out.

I got a chance to play a little golf with my boy and a few men from town. Praise the Lord for the good fellowship.

In the middle of the day I had to fly up and get my daughter who broke her wrist. She has a cast and will have it on now for up to six weeks. Praise the Lord she wasn't hurt worse.

Today I will going out early to breakfast with a family from Massachusetts and taking their kids on an airplane ride. Also I will be studying and visiting trying to lead others to Christ. Lord willing tonight we take a group to Church Hill Baptist to revival meeting. I'm looking forward to a wonderful time of preaching and signing. Thank you for your prayers and love for us!!

I pray you are having a wonderful Monday. I am eternally grateful to the God of Heaven for this another day to serve Him.

What a glorious time we had on yesterday. Both of our services at Calvary were packed and the Spirit of God moved in a glorious way. I so much appreciate the Lord doing a work in our services. The liberty of the Spirit of God was wonderful to experience as the Word was preached and the songs of zion sung. Bless the Lord oh my soul!!!!

The island ministry was blessed of God also on yesterday. The Spirit of God filled the services there on the island as Bro. Schoppes new living room was full of people. I flew up to Limington and picked up Alec Kindred and took him with us on the trip. It was a blessing to be able to train this young man on what missionary aviation is all about.

Thank you for your prayers for the services. We must do something about our space problem. It's obvious we need more room but are just being patient as we wait on the Lord and His direction in regards to another location. Keep that in your prayers.

Love you all.

Greetings in Jesus Name It's a beautiful day here in Southern Maine and I am grateful to the Lord for His blessing on our life and ministry. I was up around 5:30 and have had a wonderful time reading the Word of God. Our institute is currently studying the book of Phillipians so I enjoyed reading it through twice this morning.

We had a great day on yesterday on the island helping the Schoppe's move. Hopefully you will be able to get the video and see just a glimpse of our day on yesterday. We are looking forward to having church in the new house the Lord has provided on this Sunday.

Last night a family in our church took us out to eat. That was very kind and we enjoyed the fellowship.

Today I will be studying and visiting, maybe get a motorcycle ride and golf to. I will see how everything works out. Further I will be replacing a door on a rental cottage up the road to. No problem with finding things to do I just want to make for sure I'm doing my best for the Lord!

Greetings in Jesus Name

I Had a wonderful day on yesterday working around the farm, visiting, working at the hanger, cleaning things up, and studying for the message last night. It's so wonderful to be in the center of God's will and see Him at work.

I'm looking forward today to putting up the Logo sign (it's 5 feet around) at the hanger. It will be put on the peak of the building up about 25 feet. One of the men of the church is going to help me. I have been waiting for this for sometime so it will be nice to have it up.

Also today I will have a discipleship session with two families from our church. I'm looking forward to teaching those couples. May the God of Heaven continue to raise up couples that are devoted followers of Christ.

I want to thank each of you for your love and concern for our ministry here. I will have a video and pictures this afternoon for all to see what we did today.

It's a foggy 48 degrees and has been since 12 p.m. on yesterday. Living this close to the coast affords us the opportunity to be this foggy many spring days. I praise the Lord for Him being in control of the weather. He knows what we need when we need it. And the same is true about the climate in our spiritual life. I just read through the book of Philippians and it clearly teaches us that the Lord knows what we need to make us the best we can be for Him. Do you want to join with our Bible Institute this week in reading through Philippians in the morning and evening? Let me know, we would love to have you along.

My day yesterday was blessed with studying, visiting, and woodworking. It is a consistent witness that seems to touch people's lives and ultimately see them saved. I am praying for so many people in our area to come to Christ. Pray with me that we could see a harvest of souls in the greater Sanford area.

Today I will be doing much of the same. This is the work of the ministry and it's what my life is all about. Making sure I am feeding the sheep God has given to me and winning others to Christ.

Please pray that our service tonight will be blessed of God with His power and glory. I love Wednesday night meetings and I am expecting our God to manifest Himself in a glorious way. Can't wait!!!!!

Greetings in Jesus Name

The Lord has sent us showers of blessings this morning. I praise Him for His goodness and grace and thank Him for the shed blood of Calvary that washes our sins away. There is a fountain filled with Blood and it's never lost it's power. To many Christians stay away from this fountain and live defeated lives. May God help us to see the vital importance of walking in continual fellowship with our Saviour.

I got alot of things accomplished on yesterday around the farm. Also I was able to go and look at the property that Westbrook Baptist bought. I rejoice with them to see how God is continuing to move and bless them. Pray much for this church and their pastor Bro. Stoeber as they continue on there in Westbrook Maine.

I'm looking forward to a full day of ministry and Bible Institute tonight. It's a great honor to be entrusted with the gospel. Pray much that I would run well as we serve our Lord here on this mission field.

For all of you that keep up with our daily life heres an update about our day on yesterday. The Lord blessed in a wonderful way all day long. The Sunday school hour was great with Bro. Dave teaching. The morning service was exceptional with the Spirit of God moving in a glorious way. The chapel was comfortably full for which I praise the Lord. People were sensitive during the altar call with many coming forward to do business with God.

The flight to the island was without incident on yesterday afternoon. I mentioned to someone that I don't remember when the air was smooth. But it's the Lord that controls that and He's doing a wonderful job. The service there was also blessed of God with Bro. Bill doing a great job leading the service. I preached on one of my favorite subjects in the Word of God and that being faith. After the service we went and looked at the house that God has provided for the Schoppes. I praise the Lord for His watch care and what a blessing it is to see Him at work there on the island.

The service last night was indeed blessed again with the manifest presence of our God in the singing and preaching. After the service we went to Shains Ice Cream as a church and had a wonderful evening of fellowship together.

I am so glad that God has given us an old fashioned church here in Sanford. What a blessing it is to be a part of what He is doing in this city and the surrounding area. Please continue to pray that God would move in power and glory in our midst.

Greetings in the Name that is above all Names the Name of the LORD JESUS CHRIST!

The Lord has indeed blessed these last several days. What a joy it has been to be a part of the revival over in New York. We closed out Friday night and the service once again was blessed by the presence of God. I flew back home and got in around 11:30 p.m.

Last night was an exciting youth meeting here at Calvary Baptist Church! Our young people won the quiz bowl again. Congratulations goes out to Ben Johnson and Michaila Blaisdell for a tremendous job. All the kids knew the material but some kids are just quicker on their feet.

I'm looking forward to a glorious day of service. What honor to be able to serve the King! Pray that souls will be saved and the saints of God stirred through the meetings today.

I have had a wonderful morning thus far today. I praise God for a good nights sleep and the blessings of the Lord on this meeting. I was able to go out early today and take a two hour walk. What a wonderful time to pray and seek the God of Heaven.

The meeting last night was wonderful with great liberty in preaching the Word of God. The pastor and family have been very hospitable and the fellowship has been tremendous. I appreciate the sensitivity in the altar call last night as the altars were full with the saints of God praying for revival.

Last nights message was on Brokenness out of Psalms 51. I believe that brokenness is one of the great prerequisites to revival. Pray with me that this last night will be blessed of God with His power and glory on the meeting.

Lord willing I will fly home tonight after the meeting. Pray that I will have traveling mercies and I will be well rested for the trip.

Have a glorious day.

I have had a wonderful day of study and preparation for the evening meeting. I thank God for the oppurtunity to preach here in New York.

The meeting last night was very good. The Lord granted liberty to preach the Word of God. The altar call was good and the spirit in the meeting was wonderful. Continue to pray that God would grant revival in this area.

My traveling went wonderful yesterday with the flight being about one hour and a half. Thats better than a six and half hour drive. I landed at a little grass strip on the outskirts of town.

I will update more later.

I had a great day on yesteday of studying for the Bible Institute. I studied the first two chapters last night and boy oh boy are they rich with jewels and nuggets to encourage you. We will continue our study there next Tuesday the good Lord willing.

Today I'm excited about flying over to Syracuse N.Y. to start a revival meeting. Pray for me that God would give traveling mercies and the revival would be blessed of God. I'm looking forward to a powerful rest of the week.

As you pray for us lets pray toward an important meeting next Thursday night with the Methodist people at Shaws Ridge United Methodist Church. We are asking you to pray God's will be done. We would love the oppurtunity to purchase this campus so we could continue to grow but God knows. We are trusting Him to work out all the details.

The ladies have a meeting tommorow night here at the house. This always proves to be a great time for the ladies. Come expecting to get your buckets full and running over with the blessings of God.

On Saturday night we will have our Saturday night jubilee! We are looking forward to Bro. Brian Wilkins preaching the Word of God and having an old fashioned time together. Pray for this meeting to be a huge success.

Thank you for your love and prayers for this ministry.

I had a great day on yesterday finishing up the roof. What a blessing it is to finally get that done.

Also we were able to finish trimming and caulking all the windows up high. What a thrill to finally be catching up on some things.

My boy and I was able to go golfing yesterday afternoon. I appreciate that time we had together on the course.

I'm looking forward to a wonderful day of study and visiting today. Our Bible institute is tonight and we will be studying through the book of Ephesians. It's very exciting to see the truths of the Word of God in this book.

I will be away fromt the computer some at the end of the week as I go down to Syracuse New York to preach a revival. Pray that the God of Heaven moves in power and glory through these meetings.

Do I have to go to sunrise service?

April 13, 2009 6:02 a.m.

Greetings in Jesus Name

I am rejoicing in God's goodness and grace this morning as I type this out. What a wonderful day on yesterday that we had. It all started around 4a.m. and we got up and ready for over 50 people to come to our sunrise service. Our missionary Bro. Northcutt did an excellent job of challenging the people from 1 Corinthians 15. My wife was such a blessing in cooking breakfast for all of us. Praise the Lord for this good time.

The morning service was special with a church full of people. The Spirit of God moved in a glorious way as the Gospel was preached. I chose Acts 13 as a text and preached on The Message of the Messengers! I praise the Lord for all He did in and through the service.

We flew up to Islesboro in the afternoon for the 2 o'clock service there at the Island Baptist Church. Once again we had a glorious service with wonderful singing and another message from the Word of God. The ride up and back was not so glorious but the Lord saw us through (moderate to severe turbulence all the way there and back).

The service last night was special with great singing and multimedia presentation from Bro. Northcutt. He also preached the Word of God and did a fine job. At the conclusion of the service our church agreed to take him and Bro. Hitz on for 75 dollars a month as missionaries. What a blessing it is to add two more missionaries to our church family.

Pray for me today as I go back on the lift and finish spreading tar on my roof. Lord willing I will be done today.

I pray you have had a good nights sleep and are ready to worship our Living Christ today. What a wonderful truth it is to know that Jesus Christ is alive and He is alive forever more. Oh Bless His Name this morning!!!!!

Were looking forward to having around 50 people here for the sunrise service this morning. After that my wife is going to feed everybody. Her and Miss Eleanor fried all the bacon and sausage yesterday so today she will bake all the casseroles. It will be a wonderful morning as we worship the king.

My day was blessed on yesterday as I studied and visited in the morning. The after noon was spent 30 feet up in the air taring the roof. I praise the Lord for the strength He gave me to accomplish this. Lord willing I will be done on Monday.

I'm looking forward to a great morning of preaching and afternoon. Pray for traveling mercies as we go and preach on the island also. We have a missionary with us today and he will be presenting tonight and preaching. I sense it's going to be a great day.

Keep praying for us. We are very dependant on it to see us through.

I have already had wonderful morning reading the Word of God and enjoying all the hustle and bustle around the house. We have a couple of extra teenagers here. Our young people went to a youth rally last night and today they are going to a leadership training down in Mass.

I am thrilled to my toes about the day tomorrow. May God grant power and glory as we serve Him. Pray much that souls will be saved and the saints of God encouraged through the services.

Yesterday was a great day of work around the farm. I reserved a lift to help with roof repairs and they rented it out before I got there. Soooooooo I went to plan B. It worked out wonderful with Ben, Alec, Bill, and myself working tirelessly to build a five foot rock wall and fix the spot in front of the wood boiler. My arms are tired this morning from lifting all the rocks. Praise God it's all done and ready to be used to help us save some money here at the farm.

Pray that God would use me today to lead someone to Christ as I visit and work for HIM!

Greetings in Jesus Name

Matthew 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Note with me this morning several truths from this precious text in the Word of God!

First of all I see the calling of the twelve. As the LORD called these men so to HE is still calling forth men and woman today to serve HIM. Are we listening for the call or have we silenced the ringer. On the cell phones that most of use today we are able to do that but it's not recommended with the LORD. Let each of us be listening for the call of God. Has HE asked us to do things for HIM? He could do them himself but HE desires for us as HIS people to go forth with the gospel message and tell sinners far and wide Jesus Saves, Jesus Saves.

Second we note that he called twelve. We do know from other passages that he called more than these but he did call these twelve. What an honor to be chose by the King of Kings to represent HIM here on earth. Are you one of the twelve today? I remember the day that I was converted and I remember the day I was called. How exciting it is to serve!

Third we notice that HE gave them power. This tells us alot but one of things it says is that they needed power. Why would he give them something that they did not need. Just as they needed power to accomplish the Work of God so to we need the same power. The supernatural power that they were entrusted with is the same power that we must have to see the Work of God accomplished. May the God of Heaven consider us as candidates and entrust each of us with that wonder working power to do the Work of God!

Those that have heard the voice of GOD have been converted, called, and commissioned. May we be faithful to live out these truths in the place where HE has put us.

On a side note, I did have a good day on yesterday working around the house. I finally made it in at dark around 8 p.m. I got alot done but still have alot more to do for spring clean up.

Tonight we have discipleship with a family in our church. We are praying that HE will move in power and glory as we study the scriptures together.

Also I will be visiting and sharing the gospel as I try to do daily everywhere I go. Please pray for me that I will be effective and souls will be added to this work.

I pray each of you are having a wonderful day in the LORD!

Yesterday was a tremendous day in our life. I praise God for the study time that HE gave me in preparation for the evening message. You are welcome to go to our website and listen to the message, "We are in the Majority."

Also on yesterday I flew up to Augusta and met with Pastor Wiley for some fellowship and encouragement. I praise God for this Man of God and the work he is doing.

From there I flew to Waterville to pick up a friend and bring him back to Sanford. We had a good time together.

Today I plan on working around the farm all day long. When springtime comes their is lots of work that must be done because in the winter everything is covered with snow. This is long job that requires alot of physical labor. I have a couple days of the week that I try to catch up on this and it seems like its never enough.

Thank you for your prayers for our ministry. We for sure need them and will not be able to make it without you and the LORD working together in our lives.

What a great day I had on yesterday. Most of the day was spent studying and preparing for Bible Institute as we surveyed the book of Galatians. Their was eight people out last night studying together these wonderful truths. I thank God for these men and woman and what a blessed time we had together.

Also on yesterday I took a break and went and cleaned a little at the airport. I found where we had a leak in the roof and I expect to fix that today.

Tonight is always a thrill as we think about the opportunity of having service. I don't know what I would do if we didn't have these Wednesday meetings. I praise God for the services on Wednesday nights that seem to put a little power boost in our batteries. Pray that the God of Heaven would move in power and glory as I preach the Word. Our choir will also be readying ourselves for a special song on Resurrection Sunday.

The hour is late the need is great win the lost at any cost.

I have been wicked busy the last several days and not able to update what all God has been doing but I will attempt today.

Our company arrived from N.C. and we had special fellowship the whole weekend. I praise God for the Smith's and the blessing they were to our family and the couples retreat.

The couples retreat was a huge success once again. I thank God for all the couples that got to go. The preaching was wonderful and the fellowship was very encouraging with other families from churches of like faith and practice. I'm already looking forward to next year.

I came home and Saturday and flew the Cherokee Six. It's back up and flying now after the magneto issues. Praise the LORD for HIS goodness.

Our services on Sunday were blessed by the power of God. On Sunday morning Pastor Steve Smith preached and did a wonderful job on the "The LORD hath need of him." Then Sunday afternoon the LORD gave us a good service on the island of Islesboro. Pray much for this work that we can see somebody saved soon and added to the church. Sunday night we had all the preacher boys preach and singers sing. It was a great time with an ice cream social afterwards.

On yesterday I went and preached in Southington CT. Bro. Dave Blaisdell drove me there and back and we had a wonderful time. I thank God for the opportunity to preach the Word of God and share our burden. It was a great day!

I'm excited about this day to study, visit, and work around the house. I need to get done with a pulpit I'm making for a friend. Also I will be studying for our institute tonight. Tonight we will be studying the book of Galatians so come having read the whole book.

I pray the God of Heaven continues to bless you and use us all for His Glory and Honor!

What a wonderful day the LORD has blessed us with to serve Him!! Of course we know that everyday is a wonderful day to serve and I do praise Him for the privilege to do just that.

I got alot done yesterday at the airport with the harnesses on the Cherokee six. After putting them on I found out I still had the same problem so off came the left magneto. Hopefully we will have that back on today and it should be up and running good.

Last nights service was spectacular. God moved in power and great glory as I shared that the LORD is desirous of his people to set forward with the Work of God. The components that are involved in this are work, worship, and warfare. Wew we!!!!!!! Now Brothers and Sisters that will preach. I am so grateful that the Holy Spirit granted liberty to be able to share these truths. Please continue to pray for us as we seek God's will about moving forward. Pray that God's will be done about the Methodist church that we are praying about purchasing.

The Smiths from North Carolina arrived last night and we fellowshipped till almost midnight. It was wonderful and I praise God for this good family that is here to preach our couples retreat this weekend. Pray that the LORD will bless us with tremendous services.

I'm looking forward to a great day of service and discipleship tonight with a family in our church. Glory to God and Lamb for all HE continues to do!!!

What a wonderful Wednesday the LORD has blessed us with. I have enjoyed this morning reading the book of Galatians. I am so grateful that I have placed my faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and I know I'm on my way to heaven. Glory to God and Lamb forever!!!

My day was blessed on yesterday. I had the joy of serving the God of Heaven in several different capacities. "And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you" the writer told the Corinthian church. I happen to feel the same way. I spent most of the day studying for Bible Institute and also working at the hanger. The LORD be praised for what HE continues to do.

In our Bible institute we are studying this week in Galatians. Read with us if you like as we daily read through the book and survey the wonderful truths found therein.

Today will be filled with work at the airport, studying for tonight, visiting and soul winning, and maybe a meeting in Auburn Maine and possibly Augusta. Pray much for our services that the Spirit of God would grant liberty and we would be able to go to meeting. I'm already looking forward to it with great anticipation.

On a side note, I'm working on a day and a half with my wood boiler since being filled. I am very satisfied with how it is working. It's keeping our house toasty and in turn heating all of our water that we use. Praise the LORD for this wise investment.

Oh yeah, pray much for Wings as Eagles ministry as they are going to have to replace one of their engines on the piper chieftain at the tune of 35,000 dollars. Pray all the monies come in for it.

Love all of you.
