Are we ready to go to church tonight?

Are their any obstacles hindering the Holy Spirit from working through us?

May the God of Heaven move in power and Glory in the meeting tonight.

Yesterday I renovated the old room and made bookcases. Also I flew up and spent some time with Pastor Wiley and had a meeting last night with a family in the church. I finally retired around 10p.m.

Looking forward to a good day today of ministry.

Ps 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

I love this text of scripture. You hear so much about what God use to do I like to think about who God is. This verse tells us He is our refuge and strength and very present help in trouble. Glory to God that He is this and best of all I know Him as my Saviour. Be encouraged today and lift up your heads for your redemption draweth nigh.

I had a great day on yesterday. I spent the morning in my study and fellowshipping with my wife. Then my boy and I went golfing. After that I worked the rest of the day tearing up the floor in my new study room. To say the least the floor was rotten and needed to be replaced. It took all afternoon to do this. When you work on a house that is 200 years old you take a step forward and ten steps back. I was able to get it finished around 7 last night. Then my wife and I went on a little date and picked out some chairs at Mardens and some flooring.

Today I will be studying the precious Word of God this morning and then making book shelves for the study. Also I plan on flying up to fellowship with a pastor and then stop back by another airport and pick up some supplies. My day is going to be very busy but thats the way it's suppose to be. Busy for the Lord. Do pray as I have slotted out several days to finish the renovation of our bedroom and the study. This is something that needed to be done a long time ago and I have just put it off. I find it hard to slow down and do these things even though I really love to do work like this.

Thank you for praying.

Someone ask me one day, "do you always have good services?" My answer to them was God has been so good to us. The truth is that sometimes our services are a little sluggish but over all the Lord just blesses in wonderful ways. Yesterday was no exception as the Lord in His power and glory moved upon our meetings. I'm careful to give Him all the Glory for what He did and is going to do through our local church. I appreciate the Sunday School teachers that do such a good job teaching. Also all the players of the instruments and the singers to. Wow it's just fun to go to the House of God.!! Well Glory!!!

My wife and I are starting a project today. I forgot to finish the story last night in the message but the surprise was that I was going to help with renovating our room and do some fancy woodwork. We have always had the smallest bedroom in the farmhouse. I am going to put my study in that room and in the process renovate both rooms. I once again am going to get my study back. I was sharing it with Benjamin for a while home schooling and then it became a sewing room etc..... I'm looking forward to getting it back. It will be alot of work but will be worth it when it's all said and done.

Also today I will find time for Dick the Digger and maybe even a little golf with my boy. Everywhere I go I desire to be a soul winner. Pray for me that I can lead some soul to Christ this week.

God Bless each of you.

Greetings in the Wonderful Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ

This is the Lord's Day!!! Every day is a wonderful day but this day is special in that after some 2000 years our hearts still go back to the empty tomb. Our Saviour arose victorious over death hell and the grave.

After my morning devotions yesterday I worked the rest of the day preparing for our scavenger hunt. We had a good group of young people out and a wonderful time of fun, fellowship and devotions. The Lord be praised for what He is doing in our young people. Please pray with me that the three young people that couldn't raise their hand that they knew Christ will be saved soon.

Today will kind of be a slow day for me being that our plane is down. Bro. Schoppe will do a good job preaching this afternoon on the island. I'm use to preaching in the morning and then literally flying off to another town and preaching in the afternoon and then flying back for the evening service. I will enjoy my extra study time that I have.

I appreciate all of you that follow what is going on and all the prayers that you pray for me and the ministry here. You all are a great contributor to this work through prayer. I do not take it for granted.

It's wonderful to be saved and sure of it. It's wonderful to be called saints. It's wonderful to be satisfied with my Saviour. It's just wonderful to be alive and kicking for Jesus. What a great day we have before us to serve the King of Kings and Lord of Lord's.

My day was an encouraging one on yesterday. I studied in the morning. My wife went to walmart and while she was there I did some visiting in the area and had alot of good contacts. After that I spent some time with Greg a journalist friend of mine. Then Pastor Will Kindred and family came down and we had some wonderful fellowship together as families. It was just a great day of service.

Today I'm excited about studying the Word of God and doing some more visiting. We also have all the young people coming over for a scavenger hunt, sandwiches and devotions. It's going to be a grand day.

What a wonderful day the Lord has blessed us with. It is raining very hard outside and I call these showers of blessings. God is so good to rain down blessings on each of us as we serve Him. He has equipped us with everything that we need to live a victorious life for Him. What a mighty God we serve.

My day was wonderful on yesterday. I relaxed a bit by doing some different activities. It was encouraging to just get my breath and be able to go at it again. I went golfing in the morning and then worked around the house all afternoon. My dad took me and Benjamin out to eat for supper. After that I went to church via live webcasting to the land of sky jubilee. It was a blessing listening to the Word of God being preached.

Today I am going to study and visit most of the day. Tonight I am meeting with a pastor to discuss an upcoming family Bible School. We are asking God to do a mighty work in the lives of His people during this time. It will be a full day of service and I just can't wait to see all that God has in store.

My day was blessed of God yesterday. What a wonderful time I had studying the Word of God and getting His mind. The BOOK is so powerful as you read it and study it. It is just full of gold and jewels that direct us and bless us in our Christian life.

After studying I went out soul winning for about three hours. I didn't see anybody saved yesterday but had a good time talking to people about the Lord. Maybe today I can lead someone to Christ.

Our service last night was wonderful. We had several visitors and ended up putting out chairs. Their was a good spirit there for which I am very grateful. Praise the Lord for how He is moving. I just want to give him all the Glory for what He has done in my life and our churches life. It's so wonderful to be part of an old fashioned baptist church.

Today I'm going to change my schedule a bit and do some other things. This morning I will golf and this afternoon probably fly some. I try to change my schedule on Mondays and Thursdays because I work hard through the weekend. Some say if you do not come apart you will come a part.

What a distinct privilege the Lord has afforded each of us to serve Him. When I was at the fridge this morning having something to drink my hand went toward heaven in praise to Him for allowing me to serve Him. It is such an honor to daily be involved in touching people's lives with the gospel and loving them to the Saviour. Well, Glory!!!!

My day was blessed on yesterday. I went up to Lisbon Maine and dropped off the shuttle bus. Thanks to Bro. Dave for helping with that. Hopefully it will be inspected in a few weeks and then it will head to the paint shop. We are hoping to have it online before September. The kids will use it going back and forth to Standish Christian Academy.

In the afternoon I had a meeting about getting a bigger hanger. That meeting went real well. Now we are going to start the negotiations with the town etc.... We hope to sell ours and get out of debt. Then we will wait until we move some property or something else to build a bigger hanger for ourselves debt free. Alot of things must come together. Would you please pray for God's will to be done.

Last night I joined a jubilee meeting via the web and had a good time watching the worship service. It was encouraging and I praise God for modern things like the Internet that allow us to be blessed by services in other places.

Today I will be studying and visiting. I am also preparing for tonight's service and asking the God of Heaven to move in supernatural ways. My heart is overflowing as I think about what all God is going to do in and through the services tonight. Let's all come expecting a blessing from Him.

I had a great time in devotions on yesterday morning. I praise God for the desire that He has put in my heart to meet with him early in the morning. May God raise up a group of men in this area that say we must meet with God before our day begins.

After that my boy and I went and played golf. He had me three down after 4 but I came back and beat him by three holes. Great competition for both of us.

I loaded up the plane around 12:30 and mom and dad and myself flew up to Stonington and spent all afternoon there. The Lord is obviously working in the hearts of the people there. We had a good reception and enjoyed talking to many people. I got to go in the Burnt Cove church and we even had a little singspiration once we were in the building. Also the lady that is on the board of the church wanted her grandson to see the airplane. I showed it to him by taking him on a ride. I bet he will never forget that. It was good to be able to go and see what God is doing.

I spent the rest of my night on Dick the Digger and in the pool with the kids. It was a good day all around.

This morning I'm studying and will be going up to Lisbon soon. Dave and I are going to drop the bus off to Pastor Garnettes for him to look at it and inspect it. I have a meeting at 1 about a future hanger for our ministry. Would you please pray that God's will be done about this. We desire a bigger place. Also I will be visiting and studying the Word of God today.

These pictures are of the harbor at Stonington. Also their is one of the bus ride on Sunday going to church in Islesboro where their was 20 people out to meeting. The pictures of the church in Stonington is wonderful. The whole inside is tin. The organ is the original out of the 1850's and it still works. Has the original book sitting on the music stand.

God Bless each of you.

We had tremendous services on yesterday all day long. The Lord blessed in a mighty way and granted liberty to preach the Word of God. I prayed specifically for visiting families to come and three new families showed up yesterday. What a mighty God we serve!! It's so encouraging to be part of an old fashioned Baptist Church!! Glory!!!

I'm excited about all that God has in store for us this week. Please be praying that I can lead some souls to Christ throughout this week. This is the passion that I have. I love Mainers and praise God that He called me to preach the gospel to them.

Today I will relax a bit with my boy and play a little golf. Possibly this afternoon my wife and I are going to Stonington to meet up with another couple and see what God is doing on this island community. Oh that God would send forth labourers to love people and preach the gospel.

I'm looking forward to all that God has in store for us today. I am overjoyed with the fact that God chose me to preach His Word. What a delight to be used of God. He is so great but yet He uses the likes of people like me. Well, Glory to God!!!!!

Yesterday I spent a good part of the day in my study. I enjoyed the quietness and the time alone with the Lord. In the afternoon I repaired my go-ped. That thing screams now. A man could get hurt on it if he doesn't watch it. It's never ran that good. I give God the Glory for Him giving me wisdom to do engine work. My boy and I and Mrs. Eleanor went out and golfed nine holes a little later. This was the best round we had all year. Both of us had two birdies a piece. I shot even par 36 and he shot 37. You talking about some old fashioned competition!! To end the day I took my sweetie on a motorcycle ride and out for a bite to eat. I love dating my wife. We had a good time together.

But that was then, now we are preparing for the House of God. How will you enter his gates today????? It's up to you!!! By the good Grace of God I want to enter His gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise!!!!

I am rejoicing in the goodness of God on this foggy morning. What a wonderful day to be in the study. I love preparing to feed the people that God has entrusted to me. With the help of God were going to have a good meal tomorrow at church. I have already worked about an hour this morning trying to secure the best deal I can for Oshkosh Wisconsin. I decided to fly because it was less expensive. I want to be the best steward I can with what God has entrusted to us. My tickets were 340 for two people round trip out of Boston. Their will be some rental car fees and stuff but it still ends up being less expensive. Yesterday was a blessing as I worked most of the day with my wife putting rocks around flower beds. It's always fun to work together. I ended up going to Bangor to pick up Abigail. She was ready to come home after a week in E. Millinocket. It's nice to have her back. Have a glorious day and be sure to pray for me.

I pray you are enjoying your day. I have been busy this morning catching up on correspondence. That at times can be a full time job. I'm looking forward to this another day to serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Everywhere you go people need the Lord. Just last night my wife and I were in Walmart shopping and I handed out two Gospel tracts. The people looked at me like I was from outer space. They need the Lord. I believe they went home and read them and I pray they will get saved.

I possibly will be going back up to Stonington today if this fog lifts. I must go and see what else is happening there. I need to swing over to Islesboro and spend some time with Bro. Bill in mentoring.

Tonight I'm taking my wife on a date. Shhhhhhhhh it's a surprise. You men that read this, when was the last time you and your wife went on a date? We try to do something every week if it's just an ice cream cone. Find time to date it blesses your relationship.

The wood boiler is just purring outside. I have been cutting down dead pine trees and burning them. What a blessing to have free heat and hot water.

I must go and study and have my devotions. Keep telling others about Jesus. They will get saved and be added to the church. God is doing something tremendous right before our very eyes.

Greetings in the Lovely Name of our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ

I am rejoicing in all God did in my life on yesterday. It was such a joy to have Him bless and move as we stepped out in faith. I have been hindered for quite sometime going to Stonington and I told my wife yesterday that I was going PERIOD! I did go just for a short visit but God honored it. I met a man at the airport that took me around. He just "happened" to be saved. He had heard about our ministry a few months ago from a friend of mine who just "happened" to be there on his honeymoon. He said "Nathan told me about a man that flys around and helps struggling churches and starts new churches." He went on to say I wonder if your that man? I said, I am that man he was talking about. It's amazing to see the Sovereignty of God in aligning up all the circumstances to have him at the airport and our paths to cross. My my how God honors you when you step out in faith!!! Glory!!!!!!!!! Hallelujah!!!! Whoopee!!!!!!!!!! Hot Dog!!!!!!!!! I don't know all God is doing but I do sense He is up to something. He does not want those people in that town to go to hell. What a blessing to be used of God. My heart is overflowing.

When I got back yesterday I met with the pastor of Evergreen Covenant Church and we looked at our building. They need another building and we are planning on moving. I sense things are being put in place for our next step in God's masterplan. Glory!

Then last night we put some icing on the cake by getting to go to church. Wow, what a great service. I appreciate the Lord helping us as I preached on "So built we the wall". We must be determined to build and determined in these areas of soul winning and evangelism. Just a great day all around.

Pray for me today as I work around the farm and disciple tonight. I probally am going golfing with my boy this morning. I usally change my schedule a bit on Monday and Thursdays. These are like my days off for me. Believe it or not I do try to pace myself in the ministry. Theirs so much to do but yet I will not be good for anyone if I don't pace myself.

I pray that all will come prepared spiritually and physically. The Lord has laid a message on my heart that I will be sharing tonight. Glory to God for His blessings!!

My day was blessed on yesterday. I dealt much of day with paperwork for the land next door. In the morning I also spent a hour with Alec Kindred flying together. It was great to be able to share some of the stuff about flying that I know. He is doing good. When I came back Mr. Mack and I flew the Cherokee Six. It was a blessing to be able to see it back in the air. All the problems seem to be resolved. I went to my mens league last night which was fun. Benjamin and I are on the same team. We lost on the final hole. I ended up shooting a 38 which is not bad at all but it wasn't enough. When I got home Mrs. Amy and I went down into the woods and got some wood for the wood boiler and two loads of rocks. We called it a day at 9p.m.

Today I am planning on flying up to Stonington to pray about what God's will is. Pray with me about this. Also I will be studying and visiting and finishing up the deed for mom and dad. I'm glad to be saved and washed in the precious blood. Glory!!!!!!

I spent the early morning in the study on yesterday. After that I flew over to Westfield Mass to be part of a pastors fellowship that lasted all day. I praise the Lord for aviation because I would not been able to make it to my dinner engagement last night. The meeting concentrated on church planting in the Northeast. We had a good meeting banging around ideas. The biggest thing I can say about it is just do it. I'm not much for talking about something I would rather do it. We had a couple that had visited our church a few weeks ago come and eat with us last night. It was a great time of fellowship and sharing. My wife never ceases to amaze me with the preparation of food. It was just like we were eating at a five star resteraunt. It was a good day all around. By being able to fly yesterday I redeemed five and a half hours of my day. I called my friend Cal Fuller when I landed and he was still fourty five minutes from home stopped dead still on 495 in Worchester. Praise God for the good tool of aviation that allows us to do more for Him!

Today I'm thrilled about another oppurtunity to go to Stonington Maine and pray over this area. I will pick up Alec Kindred and spend time with him today seeking the face of God. Pray that the Holy Ghost will give us peace about what to do.

I thought all of you would enjoy some of the pictures of our flight yesterday. One of the pictures shows how cramped it is in the plane with me and Kevin!! Greetings in the Lovely Name of the Lord Jesus Christ I write to each of you this morning rejoicing in God's goodness and grace. What a mighty God we serve. He is so wonderful! I bless His name for how He continues to move in our midst. Yesteray was a tremendous day in the Lord. It's exciting to be a part of what the God of Heaven is doing in a local church. Sunday School was wonderful yesterday morning. Our teacher Dave Blaisdell did a good job teaching out of Revalation chapter 1. In the morning and evening service I preached out of John 18 on the question are ye one of the Lord's disciples. Peter was asked this question by several but he denied. I challenged the church to answer the question to themselves. I know that the preacher who is typing this blog out desires to be a disciple of the Lord. Their is so much to continue to learn about the Word of God. What a joy it is to be a disciple. Our service on the island was blessed on yesterday. We had a total of 12 people out. Bro. Schoppe and his family are doing wonderful. I flew up and back in the little Cessna 150. It's a little airplane but it worked and God moved and blessed. I'm preparing now to fly over to Westfield Mass to be part of a Pastors fellowship. I'm looking forward to sitting down and discussing church planting among several of the men.

My day was blessed all day long on yesterday. I was in my study until around 1p.m. just enjoying eating on the Word of God. I had an interesting conversation with a brother yesterday that said he had been praying that God would do something over in Stonington. That got me real excited. It seems to me that our God want's a gospel preaching church over there. Pray for God's timing. I went and played nine holes of golf with my boy late in the evening also. Then I ended up flying the little 150 getting it ready for our missions today. I had to replace the battery. Now it's doing wonderful. You talking about turning the prop over. Whoo Wee!!

This is the day the Lord hath made we will rejoice and be glad in it. I am so thrilled to be able to preach the Word of God. Pray much for me today as I preach all day that the Spirit of God would fill me and use me for His Glory. I'm looking forward to all the services throughout this region today.

To God be the Glory Great things He has done. My girl Elisabeth is growing up. She got her drivers license yesterday. It was kind of neat to see it all work out. I flew the little Cessna 150 and circled the DMV while she was taking the test. I was praying fervently for her. I'm glad she is growing up. It's sad in a way but it is wonderful to see her being such a mature young lady.

I also got out yesterday morning and went soul winning for a few hours. I am burdened that my neighbours are not saved. I had good visits but no decisions yet. I've been at this in Maine since 96 and I have found evangelism is slow for me. Some have come and got hundreds of decisions out of people. I desire more than just a profession I want to see people mean business. The doctrine of salvation is not something to be playing around with like a game. It would behoove us all to know what it's all about as we evangelize our areas. To God be the Glory for how he has helped us through the years. Though it has been kind of slow many churches have been started and the fruit from these remain. Glory!!!!

I worked on dad's lot some with "Dick the Digger." I am slowly making it look like something. All the paper work is coming together and we also wrote out the deed last night to give them two acres.

My wife did a wonderful job of feeding 24 people for discipleship last night. She never ceases to amaze me. What a wonderful lady. My mom and Miss Eleanor helped her some and so it all worked out. The lesson last night was on the Holy Spirit. We had a good study together.

After that we went out to the Mainers baseball game and caught two innings just to relax a bit.

When I got home from there I went to my wood working shop and worked till 10:30 finishing up a stool for Don Wrights grandmother. Woo Wee I am tired!

Today will be a day of studying, soul winning, and family time. We may even go up to Ossipee Fair for a little while. It will be a good day because everyday you serve Jesus is a good day. What an honor to be called to serve Him. I am so grateful to be an "ambassador for Christ."

Hebrews 10:7 ¶ Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

We know that this is a verse speaking of the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ, but it has great application to all of us. It is my desire to do the will of God. The will of God is simply what God desires or wishes. He has made His will plain in the scriptures in the 66 books that make up the canon of the scriptures. Each of us are without excuse when it comes to knowing and doing the will of God. May our Lord find us faithful living in the center of His will and doing his will on a day to day basis.

My day yesterday was blessed of the Lord. I started the day in my study and boy oh boy did I have a good time digging into the Word of God. I discovered so many truths that helped me. I spent most of my time studying on wisdom.

After that I went to the town hall and had a meeting about our private way that we are putting in. That took most of the day because I also went to the court house to check on some other things that I have to do. It's all part of the process that hopefully will be done soon and we can get to building mom and dads house.

Discipleship was a blessing last night as we had a practical approach to the ministry. What a blessing to train others.

I ended the day off with some counseling and finally called it quits around 10 p.m.

Today I will be studying in the morning, going to courthouse to register a deed, and Lord willing flight checking the Cherokee six. It everything works out on the plane I may be headed to different towns to survey them and see what God is doing in reference to starting these other churches. Pray hard that I will know the mind of God in this.

Tonight is discipleship with another family in our church. Pray that our families will continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord.

What a great day we had on yesterday. I was busy in my study until 10. Then my wife and I went soul-winning and also went and visited a sick girl in our church. We had a good visit there. It rained all day long so I continued to study pretty much the rest of the day. I did get out and visited some more and went to the airport to check on the guys there that are doing a great job on the Cherokee Six.

Our service was blessed last night with 39 visitors. We had a youth group visit us from N.C. To say the least we had to put out chairs. God blessed us with a wonderful meeting. I praise the Lord for how He moved as I preached on Glorifying the Lord through Faithful Service.

I had a great day of ministry on yesterday. I was at the airport to help just a little and to take the men out to eat. After that Mrs. Amy and I went visiting. Then we had a prayer meeting for little Emily. Pray much for her today as she goes to the specialist. She needs a miracle for the condition that she has. She has been diagnosed with some form of lupus. I believe God heard and answered as we had our prayer meeting. After that I studied a good part of the afternoon. What a joy it is to write new notes in my new Bible. I'm just like a kid with a new toy. Around 9 p.m. my wife and I took a ride over to look at our new shuttle bus. Praise the Lord that Bro. Dave made it in safe and sound. I appreciate his hard work these last two days in bringing the bus back. Now comes the fun and repainting it. Dad is going to have a wonderful time.

Today I will be studying, visiting, and of course the work of the ministry. What a joy it is to be called. Tonight we are suppose to have 39 young people visiting us from N.C. We are praying for a power packed service. Pray for me that I will be sensitive to the sweet Holy Spirit as He moves in and through the meeting tonight.

My day yesterday was very blessed. It started around 4 a.m. with flying Bro. Dave over to Manchester. After that I went golfing with my boy. He turned 14 yesterday and did a good job golfing. I still beat him but he is excited about his new clubs. After that our family spent the rest of the day together in quality family time at the coast. We had a picnic and found a private place for the kids to swim some. It was a real blessing to be together. I managed to get a little time in on "Dick the Digger". He is our excavater that I'm working with to clear mom and dads lot.

Today will be studying and devotions, visiting and just the plain ole work of the ministry. I'm thrilled to be involved in this great work. That's what Nehemiah said when he said this is great work. Glory to God and Lamb forever!!!!!

Also yesterday afternoon I flew over to the little Stonington airport to look at a closed down church. We are praying about what God would have for us to do in reopening this church. The fields truly are white unto harvest.

I'm looking forward to a good family day. My boy and I are going golfing this morning and then all of us are headed to the beach for a picnic at noon to celebrate Benjamin's 14th birthday. Happy Birthday to Benjamin! I probably will work on the land next to us a little today also. I'll will be a little tired after just four hours of sleep so pray the Lord gives me some extra sleep today. Of course I had a verve this morning so I on the up and up!!

Love you all

This is the day the Lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it!!!! Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!!!! Glory to God!! Great things our Lord has done!! It's a good thing to praise the Lord!!

I appreciate the mercies of our God in blessing me on yesterday. I got home around 11 and got settled back in. My boy and I played nine holes of golf. We had a wonderful hamburger at supper. After that my wife and I went on a little motorcycle ride to relax a bit. It's great to be back home.

I'm excited today to be entrusted with the Gospel of the Grace of God. What a privilage it is to be a preacher. My soul is stirred at the prospects of what God is going to do in our meetings today. Pray with me as I preach this morning and then go to the island this afternoon and service tonight. It's been three weeks since I have been to the island because of rain so I am looking forward to it today.

Pray that we can see souls saved and the saints of God stirred through the singing and preaching of the Word of God.

Glory to God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whoopee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a Day!!!!!!!!!

I just arrived back in town. The Lord be praised for traveling mercies and a wonderful time of preaching, singing, fellowshipping, and shouting. God showed mercy on me yesterday as my voice opened up. I was able to sing a song and preach in the afternoon service just before supper. The pastor asked me to preach on church planting. I had a wonderful time sharing about my Great God and what He continues to do in this area.

All total yesterday there must have been over 20 preachers and alot of singing. I was in church all day long. "My cup runneth over."

I excited to be back here where my heart is. What a blessing to love what you do. Thank you Jesus for calling me to this area.

Love you all

The Lord blessed in a wonderful way on yesterday. I spent the morning in my study and then went to see an eye specialist. He said their was no scratches or foreign material in my eye but it would probably take about 2 to 3 weeks to heal up. So if you look at me I look kind of evil looking with one red eye and one blue eye. The Lord knows and we just keep on kicking.

Our services last night were blessed with a good spirit and good attendance. What an encouragement it is to this preacher to see what our God is doing in our midst. I'm careful to praise Him and give Him all the glory for what He is doing. What a mighty God we serve. I really enjoyed preaching on "Let's go fishing" again last night. This series is going to be a great blessing as we study together and preach from the Word of God.

Today I am going to study and exercise this morning. After that my flight leaves for N.C. around 12:30. I'm looking forward to the all day meeting tomorrow at the Blue Stone Baptist Church in Clarksville Virginia. Pray that the Power of God will be my portion as I share the Word of God. Pray that God will use me in a tremendous way.

God Bless each of you.

Just finished up my morning devotions and exercise. I'm not any better with my eye or throat. Please continue to pray. I just called a Dr. friend of mine and he said if your eye does not show improvement in 24 hours I should have an oral antibiotic. Also he said if it hasn't gone to the other eye their may be something in that eye. My wife is setting up an appointment with the optometrist now. Pray that God will be pleased through all of this. I am very burdened about this in light of our services tonight and me flying out tomorrow to preach in Virginia on Friday. Pray that I would have a supernatural healing. I continue to pray and beg God for it.

Yesterday I ended up getting out of the house for a little while with Benjamin on the golf course. Then I ran the excavator on dad's property for an hour. Mom and Dad invited us over to eat so that was nice to fellowship.

Today I'm hoping to feel good enough to continue to study and prepare for tonight's service. Along with our home crowd we are expecting up to 50 more visitors. I'm praying for a powerful service at Calvary. Come expecting God to do great and marvelous things.

I appreciate your prayers for me.
