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

My day was blessed of the Lord on yesterday. I was busy preparing for the preachers fellowship on Monday. What a great time were going to have on Monday.

Today I'm in my study mining out truths so that I can prepare a meal for the sweet people at Calvary Baptist Church of Sanford Maine. I'm praying that the Lord will meet with us and show Himself mighty in our midst!!

Don't forget tonight at 5 is Hallelujah Harvest at 90 Gore Road in Alfred Maine. It's going to be a wonderful time as we gather together for preaching, singing, eating, fellowship and of course candy for the kids. Come expecting a mighty blessing!!!

Please pray for me today as I study and visit.

Greetings in the Glorious, Powerful, Magnificent Name of our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ!!!!

Tit 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Their are several things in this text that speak to me today as I type out this morning's blog. First of all we see the wonderful gift in this verse. The scriptures declare that HE "gave himself for us,." Can you imagine that the Son of God died for us on the Cross. He gave himself for a bunch of old sinners like you and me. Oh what a Saviour.

Next we see not only the gift but we see the redemption. He paid the price for us to be redeemed when He shed His precious blood on Calvary for our sins. Not only have we been redeemed but redeemed from all iniquity. When He sees me He sees the Blood. Glory!!! Amen!!!! We that know Christ as our Saviour have been justified. We have received the imputed righteousness of Christ.

Third, not only the gift, the redemption, but now we see the purification!!! Before God in Heaven the Bible is clear to teach us that we have received the imputed righteousness that comes through faith in the finished work of Christ on the Cross. But that doesn't mean we are not pure while here on earth. We are to be a people that are fit for heaven, sanctified, meet for the masters use. What we must be clear on is that we are not working for our righteousness, but working because we are righteous and have been purified by the Blood of Christ. This purification does two things for us. First we are a peculiar people. God's people are different than the world. Most churches you go into today you can't tell whether they are Christians or people of the world. Most families that you see walking around in the stores their is no difference. The Lord said we are a peculiar people. I didn't make that up!!! What kind of person are you today? Next he said, zealous of good works. Hows your zeal today? If I have been told once in my life I have been told a 100 times, "that preachers crazy!!" Come on now, am I really crazy or is their just a little zeal there? I'm not crazy I'm a zealot!!! That's what the scripture tells us we are to be. That zeal transfers over into good works. We are zealous to do the work of God!!! Whatever the scriptures teach us to do, we do and we do it gladly with ZEAL!!!!

This is what the scriptures declare. What will you do with the Word of God today? Don't tell me your just going to say, "Oh that was another good devotion." Don't forget the price Jesus Christ paid on Calvary for our sins to redeem us. This is to great of price to just be a nominal Christian. We are to be zealots for His Cause!!!!

Greetings in Jesus Name!!

Well, our mission conference is over. We had a good time all week long with singing and preaching. I'm praying our Faith Promise goes up this year. We did go ahead and take on three more missionaries. It's a blessing to be involved in supporting missionaries around the world.

Today all of the missionaries will leave and go there seperate ways. Our house will once again be empty. That will be a blessing for a few days. Next visitors will come in on Saturday and they will be with us for several weeks.

I'm going to catch up on some things around the house today. Also I need to fly to Nashua to get our plane. Somebody borrowed it to fly to Michigan.

Please pray for me as we have many decisions to make in the coming days. My personal devotions this morning was "praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit"!!!! That will work!!

Our few days of Missions Conference is coming to a close tonight. It has been wonderful to be a part of what God is doing in our church through these meetings.

Bro. Caudle and Bro. Townsley both have been a blessing to our church. What a thrill it is to support missions and be in a church that desires to get some things done.

We stayed up until almost 11 last night singing around the piano and playing the trombone. You better watch out tonight at church. We may have something up our sleeve for a special from the three of us.

I'm excited today to be studying and visiting. Bro. Townsley and I may try to work some together on a video for my upcoming trip to N.C.

I am so thrilled to be entrusted with the Gospel. What a deposit the Lord has entrusted us with. My everyday is filled with serving the King of Kings and I just love it!!! Glory to God and the Lamb forever!!!!

I praise the Lord for the good day that I had on yesterday. Bro. Townsley and myself flew down to Martha's Vineyard. I was encouraged to find out the open doors that are there for a Independent Baptist Church to be started. Please pray for labourers to go to that Island and win those people to Christ.

I picked up our speaker for the conference at the Portland airport around 3:30. We came back home and got a bite to eat and then we were on our way to the House of God. What a glorious time we all had around the table of the Word of God. The message was great, the singing was spectacular and the fellowship was wonderful. I am addicted to church!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm looking forward to spoiling the Men of God today and doing some things around the farm. I'm also looking forward to sharing the Gospel with many today as I am out and about.

Please pray for our service tonight. It's starts at 6 here at the Calvary Baptist Church of Sanford Maine. I'm looking forward to a powerful time together.

To God be the Glory for all He did on yesterday. I appreciate the freedom to be able to deliver the Word of God. Wow!!! What a mighty God we serve!!

Looking forward to the Missions Revival this week through Wednesday night. Praying for powerpacked services and great liberty to be challenged from the Word of God. Bro. Scott Caudle will be preaching every night at six.

I'm going to be studying and surveying today for another town for our church to start another church. Pray much that the Lord will lead.

As they "ministered to the Lord" the Holy Ghost said. This is the plan for us to be used of God out of Acts 13. The Lord usually puts His hand on those that are busy in the local church and then calls them forth. May God continue to call many out into the fields that are white already to harvest.

What a glorious meeting last night. We had around 120 out and it was a hoe down time. The preaching was great the singing was uplifting and the fellowship was tremendous. I'm sorry if you were not able to make it but it was just absolutely wonderful.

I am thrilled with the thoughts of the services today. Glory to God we get to go to church!!!! Whoopee!!!! I'm in my study this morning mining out some truths to share with the brethren. Please pray for me that the Lord would be pleased as I share the Word of God!!!

Lord willing we will be up on the island this afternoon to encourage the Island Baptist Church.

Greetings in Jesus Name

It's a rainy 41 degrees outside this morning. Praise the Lord for another day to praise, worship, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. I'm glad that the Lord saved me and called me into the ministry. It should be illegal to be so excited about everyday of life.

My day was blessed on yesterday. I confronted five people with the gospel. No one was saved but I did get to share with them. As I was in prayer yesterday my heart just burned with the possibility of leading others to Christ. When we really take an internal look we don't lead many people to Christ. No wonder our churches are not packed out and running over. May the Lord challenge each of us to be the best soul winners we can be for His glory.

I flew up to the island yesterday to spend time with Bro. Schoppe. That was a real blessing and I praise God for how He helped me to fly and mentor. I will have to work on my video skills. As you can tell you have to watch the videos sideways. I will address the problem. Ha!!

I'm thrilled about tonight's Saturday Night Jubilee. Bro. Jerry Wayne Carter will be preaching the Word of God and churches from all around will be gathering into the Calvary Baptist Church of Sanford Maine to Worship the King. What a glorious time I am expecting tonight. May souls be saved and the saints of God stirred.

Also tomorrow starts our fifth annual faith promise missions conference. What will the Lord do this year in our lives. It remains to be seen but I'm expecting great things.

It's a beautiful sunny day as I type out this blog. The colors are almost gone and the leaves are all over the ground. I need to get them picked up but I'm afraid the wind will blow them back in. Oh well good thought anyway.

My day was blessed all day long on yesterday as I studied, reparied things around the farm, counseled and had discipleship. It was a very profitable day.

Today I will be studying, visiting, and mentoring. I'm thrilled about another day to serve the Lord. My heart just throbs with the thoughts of leading others to Christ and ministering to the saved. Oh God please send a mighty move of your Spirit through this area and change us for time and eternity!

I will update you through out the day in my travels.

I give God all the Glory for the wonderful things that HE is doing in our midst. What a thrill it is to awake every morning with a new day to serve HIM! Someone hole my mules while I run a little!!! Glory to God!!!!

My old posts tell the story of yesterday. It was a tremendous day.

Our services last night were blessed as I shared with our people what the LORD is doing in our local church. I praise the Lord for the good time we had sharing.

After the church service I went to a town meeting and mom and dad's road to their house was approved. This is a real blessing and I thank God for HIM helping me through this process.

I'm thrilled about this day of ministry. I will be studying a good part of the day and then visiting and counseling. I also have discipleship tonight. It's going to be a very busy day for the LORD!!

What a powerful day I had on yesterday. It's such a thrill to serve the Lord full time. My whole 40th birthday was blessed as I spent time with family and visiting some. I had a great time praying and preparing to preach in Medford Mass. The Lord granted traveling mercies there and back last night. We got in just a little before midnight. The meeting was well attended and the Spirit of God moved in power and glory. I am eternally grateful for the filling of Holy Ghost that makes the difference. What a glorious time we had together. We took just at 30 with us. The fellowship was wonderful as always. Where we going next?

I will be studying today and doing some research on Isaac Case in the special collections library at Colby College in Waterville. I'm looking forward to tonight's service with great anticipation. I am praying for a mighty move of the Spirit of God on the Services as we gather together at 68 High Street Sanford Maine!

What a wonderful day the Lord has given us as I type this blog entry. The sun is coming up and glistening through the trees. Isn't it just lovely to be serving the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Well Glory to God!!!!!

I have waited for this day for quite sometime but it is finally here. I am officially 40 today. What a thrill it has been for me to not only be 40 but this month to praise the Lord for 20 years in the ministry. My heart is overwhelmed with the goodness of my God and how He has blessed me and used me these years. I am so careful to give Him all the Glory for what He has done and is continuing to do in my life!!! I bless His Holy Name today!!!

I was Mr. Tour guide on yesterday. I had a wonderful time with my family and friends taking them around and looking at different sights. I thank the Lord for my Mom and Dad taking my family out to eat yesterday. It's always good at Warrens in Kittery Maine.

I'm thrilled about another day to study and minister to people. I'm excited about going up to Colby to their special collections library to do some research on Isaac Case. And then I get to go preach tonight in Medford Mass. on my birthday. Wow!!! What a mighty God we serve!!!

I will try to update throughout the day like I did on yesterday. Some of the videos were o.k. I will be tweaking them so you all can continue to be in prayer for me through out everyday!!!

It's been good during these days to have my sister and grandma visiting. What a special time we have had together.

Well my wife did it. She surprised me! Actually she lied through her teeth. She has lied so much lately that she doesn't know what the truth is. She planned a surprise 40th birthday party for me at the church last night. What a thrill it was for me to see a packed out church of people there that love us. I didn't know I had that many friends. My heart is still stirred with all that God did in and through the meeting last night. Thank you to everybody that made the night a success. A special thank you to my sweetie pie Mrs. Amy for all her hard work. Our church is such a great church and I'm careful to give God all the Glory for what HE is doing.

I'm so thrilled that my sister and my grandma came up to be a part of this. Wow what a surprise!!!! This is just like homecoming!!!

I am excited about this day of study and visiting. I am amazed with how much their is to do everyday when I get up. Truly it helps to be full time in the ministry to give my all to work.

On this day my thoughts are toward the Lord's Day. I want to be able to feed my people a good meal. It may not be their most favorite meal but I want it to be the one the Lord has for them. I must walk with HIM and be sensitive to the Holy Ghost as He speaks.

It's a cool morning here in Maine. The temperature is 34 with a little snow flakes soon to be in the air. I just went out and loaded "Willy the Wood Boiler" and the wind is blowing with a cold wind chill. It's going to be a wonderful day in the Lord!

My day on yesterday was very busy with some catch up things around the farm. I also worked on the cottage and got two more big things done. I spent some time in my office in the morning studying the Word of God. Around lunch time I went up to Harpswell Maine and did some research on Isaac Case. I'm going to be putting a tour together of this guy and one Saturday we will all go do the tour together.

In the night I had discipleship training with the Berards. What a blessing to disciple others that want to know more. They are doing good and soon will be teaching others.

Doug and Joyce's flight got delayed so Mrs. Amy and I got home at 3 this morning. But praise the Lord they are here. I will have to catch up a little on the sleep today because I didn't get any last night.

Today I will be busy in the Work of the Ministry here in town. What a delight it is to daily serve the Lord Jesus Christ!!!!!

I praise the Lord for the day that He gave me on yesterday. I was able to get alot done. Most of my day was spent in my study preparing for the message last night. I was a little smart last night in the introduction of the message when I said I'm going to continue my most sought after sermon series on Laziness. I don't think it's the most sought after series but it's still the BOOK!!! The Spirit of God helped us last night and taught us some wonderful truths. May the God of Heaven help us not to be lazy people.

Today I will be busy with repairs on a rental house, work around the farm, visiting, possibly going to Waterville to the Libary at Colby, among other things. Tonight I am also due to disciple the Berards. Wow it's going to be a busy but wonderful day. At 11p.m. Doug and Joyce will be flying into Portland. They will be with us for 10 days . That should be fun to have them around. It will be nice to be able to fellowship some.

Thank you for keeping us with us and praying for us. The Lord indeed is good!!!!!

What a joy and delight it is to type this out everyday and let you know what God is doing in and through our lives. I bless His Holy Name that He is a mighty God!!!

I was busy yesterday morning with studying and meetings in town. In the afternoon I went and got certified on the shooting range so I could carry my handgun concealed. Benjamin and I found a little time to go out and play nine holes of golf to. It's not many more days that were going to be able to do this so that was fun. Then it was off to the revival meeting. We took 19 from our Bible Institute up to North Baldwin last night. What a joy and delight it was to hear some good Bible preaching about taking risks for the Lord or simply stepping out in faith. My heart was warmed from the preaching of the Word of God.

I'm looking forward to preparing for the meeting tonight at the House of God. I want to have a good meal ready for the folks at Calvary when they come tonight. Also I will be working some around the house today. I really need to get all the bugs off of the airplane so I may wash it to. I can assure you that their is plenty to do. Wow!! What a joy to serve the KING!!!

What a glorious day I had on yesterday. I couldn't sleep good so I was up early studying the Word of God. The Lord spoke to me and encouraged me from His precious Word. Around 10:30 I flew down to Hartford Ct. and dropped out 300 little plastic footballs out of the plane to a bunch of teenagers. That was fun to see all the teenagers running after them. Their was 700 of them out for a huge youth fest at Central Baptist Church in Southington.

When I came back I did some study and preparation for the revival meeting that I preached at last night in North Baldwin. The Lord granted power and glory as I preached on "Wilt thou not revive us again." Our Bible Institute class will be going back tonight.

Today I'm thrilled at the opportunities that await me. I will be studying and visiting. I also have a meeting at town hall I must go to this morning. In the afternoon I'm suppose to go to the firing range and shoot pistols. It's going to be a busy but profitable day. Praise the Lord for the opportunity to serve the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!!!!

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

I am careful to give God the Glory for the glorious meetings with His people on yesterday. It is such a delight to be a preacher of the Gospel and a servant of Jesus Christ. I am so thrilled everyday to come and type out what our Great God is doing in our ministry here.

All the services were an encouragement. The Sunday school was a blessing in the morning. You need to go to our homepage of our church www.calvaryofsanford.org and view the sermons. On that page you will find Sunday school lessons. Listen to those and you will be blessed as our teacher takes us through Revelation and the Seven churches of Revelation. The morning service went well with a packed out building and a wonderful spirit in the service. I appreciate the filling of the Holy Spirit. Their would be no preaching outside of this. After the morning service a team of five flew up to the island of Islesboro Maine. What a blessing it was to have service there with 16 people represented. Pray much that souls will be saved and that church will continue to grow. Pray also for their preacher Bill Schoppe. Our flight was good on the way back other than the wind blowing up into the 20's but God granted wisdom to fly the plane and land safely. Our service last night was also a blessing as I preached on the Sluggard. God wants his children to be good stewards of our time. When I wake up in the morning my mind is racing hence the early morning update today. The day was capped off with five being baptized. Oh that God would save more and we could baptize more. What a joy an thrill it is to see what God is doing in our church.

Pray for me today as I will be studying here in the morning and then flying out to Connecticut. I will be dropping toys out of a plane at Pastor Townsley's youth fest. Pray also for me tonight at North Baldwin Baptist Church as they are in revival. I will be preaching there tonight. Pray that the Lord will use me for His honor and Glory!!

Have a glorious day.

A Servant for Christ

Greetings in the Blood Stained Name of our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ

What a mighty God we serve. I bless His Holy Name today for the opportunity to serve Him. It is the thrill of my life to be entrusted with the gospel. Glory to God and the Lamb forever!!

The ladies conference on yesterday was a huge success. Their was over 100 ladies from all over the state of Maine there. I understand that Mrs. Kay Messer did a wonderful job teaching the ladies.

I appreciate my wife and the hard work she did to spearhead this conference. Also the ladies of our church really rallied together to make this a successful meeting. Were already planning toward next year.

I had a good time of studying and work yesterday. Also got a chance to play in a golf tournament. This will be the last one of the year. It was a joy and delight and it's always good to build relationships with others.

Pray for me today as I preach all day. I realize that the filling of the Holy Ghost is a personal thing that is contingent upon my own walk with God but it's good to know that your praying for me as I minister the Word of God.

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

I just came back from the church and the ladies conference looks like it's going to be a huge success. Ladies from all over the state of Maine are assembled. Praise God for such a good turnout.

Today I will be studying and playing in a golf tournament. I'm looking forward to a powerful day in the Lord.

I'm thrilled to my toes at the thought of tomorrow. Oh that the Lord Jesus Christ would save souls and stir the saints. What a thrill it is to be part of a local church that is on fire for God!!!! Wellllll Glory!!!!!!! Pray that we have a church full and most importantly that Jesus Christ would be magnified throughout the whole day.

Greetings in Jesus Name

What a glorious morning it is here in Maine. It's a cool and crisp 45 degrees as I type out this blog. It's going to be a good day. I'm grateful today that my Saviour is alive and alive forever more. Well Glory!!!!!

My day yesterday was very eventful. I spent most of the morning here in my study. Then I was off to find where the great Baptist preacher of by gone days was buried. You talking about a touching epitaph. Sometimes you find nothing wrote on the stones but his was very moving. I'm going to take a trip from the church up there soon.

My boy and I was able to go golfing in the afternoon. It has been a while since I went so that was fun. After that I had discipleship with the Berards. They are close to being done and it want be long until they are teaching others. That's the goal of discipleship and it's been wonderful these last 14 years to see so many saved and discipled.

Today I am going to work on "Dick the Digger" and put the oil cooler back in him. Also this morning we are going to set up the Methodist church for the First annual Maine ladies conference. I also will be studying and visiting. What a wonderful time I'm looking forward to having today. Isn't it great to serve the Lord!!!!??

My sister is 43 today. If you see her tell her I said so!!!

Greetings in Jesus Name

I had a tremendous day on yesterday. The Lord granted power and grace as I served Him. I was in my study till lunch studying the precious Word of God. After that I took the missionary out to lunch to Wendy's and we had a chili and a potato. I finished up some paper work for mom and dad at the town office for their driveway. Pray that all goes through and we can have approval soon to start construction of the road.

The service last night was just priceless. What a thrill it is to go to church and hear the Word of God preached and to see all that God is doing around the World. What a blessing it was to have Mark Logan with us during these days of Bible Institute and our Wednesday service. The Lord Jesus Christ helped us through the singing and preaching and slides. To Him be all glory and praise.

Choir practice was also a blessing as we are working on our cantata. It is going to be a real blessing.

I'm excited about the prospects of this day. Another day to serve the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I will be studying, visiting, encouraging a pastor and discipling tonight. What a joy it is to be in the center of God's will!!!

I appreciate all you do for us here as we serve the Lord.

Greetings in Jesus Name

Wow!!! What a day I had on yesterday. It started out real busy in the morning with phone calls and alot of things that needed to be done. I appreciate the Lord in His grace helping me throughout the day. After having my time with the Lord in the morning Dave and I flew up to pray with Bro. Jason before his surgery. On the way back we got a call that his daughter was sick so we flew up to Limington airport and picked her up. I came home and took the missionary out to eat for lunch. Then mom and dad and myself took back off to go up and get the donated van up in Dover Foxcroft. I got home around 4 and my wife met me at town hall for us to drop off all the paper work for mom and dads driveway. Then off to my study to prepare for Bible Institute. Our institute went wonderful last night as I laid the ground work for teaching on Doctrine. Bro. Mark Logan finished it off by preaching and showing his presentation of the countries that he goes to preaching the gospel. It was for sure a wonderful day and glorious night.

Today will be filled with studying and visiting. I'm thrilled about what God is going to do tonight at church. It's 5:53a.m. as I type this and I'm already excited with anticipation about the meeting.

God Bless each of you.

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

As long as I can remember I have been saying greetings in Jesus Name!!! I remember as a young student of the Word of God how special it was to me to see the greetings all through the scriptures so therefore I started greeting people this way. Now you know the "rest of the story."

My days have been extremely busy lately. When I think they can't get any busier they just seem to get more crazy. Their is nothing wrong with being busy as long as we are busy for HIM and have not lost the fire of the Holy Ghost in our lives.

I took Bro. Dave, Phillip, and T.J, with me to a pastors fellowship yesterday morning south of Fitchburg Ma. We had a wonderful time flying down together. When I walked in the pastor whispered to me, "I wouldn't be burdening you to ask you to speak would I?" I said of course not I would love to preach. The Lord helped me and the others that were there. It was a good time together with some of my men from church.

I flew home and then hit the ground running to get drawings together for mom and dads project. That took me to around 5. In the evening I spent almost 5 hours at a pistol course so I can carry a concealed weapon. That was fun and very informative. I went to bed a 11:30.

I'm looking forward today to studying for Bible Institute and myself. I have a hanger inspection at the airport. I will be flying up to Dover to pick up a van. I also plan on stopping in Augusta to find Isaac Case's grave marker and fellowship with two pastors. Last of all I get to go and teach in Bible Institute. Oh yeah theirs a missionary showing up here today that I must take care of. Are you tired yet?

Thanks for your Prayers.

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

What a powerful day I had on yesterday. I enjoyed being with the folks over in Newport N.H. The Lord granted unto us great services and I appreciate Pastor Barbour and the people there of the Berean Baptist Church.

Our service last night was blessed with God's power and annointing. I appreciate the good spirit in the services. I preached on being a wise masterbuilder. After the service the church gave Bro. Dave and I cards for pastor appreciation. That was so thoughtful and nice. I appreciate the good people that God has given us at Calvary Baptist of Sanford Maine. What a thrill it is to go to church and love what God is doing.

Today I fly out to Massachusetts to be in a Pastors fellowship. I'm looking forward to a good time in the Lord. This afternoon I'm going to spend some time with the family. Tonight I have a gun course to go to. I have a full day of ministry and I'm glad for it. What a great and mighty God we serve!!

Greetings in the Marvelous, Matchless, Name of our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ!!!

It's a wonderful morning here in the Northeast. This is the Lord's day and I am so excited to be able to go and encourage and help God's people. What a blessing it is to be a preacher of the gospel!

I will be in Newport N.H. this morning with Pastor Barbour. Pray that God's will be done as I share about our vision to reach the next towns with the gospel of the grace of God. The weather is not real good so I will be driving over this morning. I'm taking a man from the church with me. We should have a wonderful time together.

I can't wait to get back to Calvary tonight. The Lord has burdened me with a message to preach. What a blessing it is to have such a wonderful church filled with so many wonderful people. I love where God has placed me.

Pray much for me today!!

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

It's a beautiful morning here in Sanford Maine. As I type I'm looking at the rain just pelting down and thanking God for the showers of blessings. Many are in a drought but God has blessed us abundantly with rain.

My day was blessed on yesterday. I replaced three tires on the Cherokee Six. They were gone and many more landings they might have blown. After that I flew up to Dover-Foxcroft and looked at a van that has been given to us. What a blessing this is going to be for our island ministry. It will be ready for use very soon. Mom and dad came home last night from their visit in N.C. We had a supper together and then I spent the rest of the night with the family. It was a very profitable day of service. Oh yeah my number three indicator for the Exhaust Gas on the plane was acting up so I cleaned it before supper and now it works great. Praise the Lord for Him helping me to do this.

I'm looking forward to studying alot today. I also am going to go out and do some soul-winning. Please pray that I can win people to Christ. I may run some wire for Miss Eleanors computer that she has. It's going to be a wonderful day, I just know!

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

To whom be all praise? All praise be to the one who bled and died on Calvary for our Sins, the Lord Jesus Christ!!!! Oh what a Saviour!!

I was in my study from around 5:10 a.m. yesterday morning to about 8:30. Then I went to the Biddeford Airport and worked all day on the tail of the airplane. We got the bracket on, and the bushings and I flew it home around 4:30. Seems to be doing better. When I got to the end of the day my friend said this is a donation. That was very kind and I am grateful for his help in this area. This will help to relieve Bro. Don when he comes back from Cameroon. I also am going to allow him to do the C150 which will help also.

I got home just in time for an old fashioned discipleship training mission. I had a good time with the Berards last night. They are getting close to being finished and then discipling others themselves. What an exciting step this is in the process. We talked alot about that last night.

Today I may be flying up north to look at a van someone has donated to us. It's just like our van we use for church. We may paint this and put it on the Island.

I'm excited about this day to serve the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!!!

Glory to God and the Lamb for Ever!!! Praise the Lord for the filling of the Holy Ghost!!!!

Greetings in Jesus Name

Where does time go? When I typed that date out it gets a hold of you. "Lord teach us to number our days."

I had an encouraging day on yesterday. I was able to talk to several people. Some don't understand that you are constantly talking to people to share the gospel with them. It's very difficult to talk to people when your in your study. So what I do is study and then get out and about and talk with people. Oh that the God of Heaven would raise up more labourers to reap the "harvest that is plenteous." I desire to be one of those labourers.

I also took out the oil cooler in the excavater. That wasn't to bad of a job. I'm getting it repaired now and it should go back in soon.

Last night's service was a huge blessing. I appreciate the good folk at Calvary Baptist Church. What a blessing it is to be able to preach the Word of God. The Lord was gracious last night and helped us. We had 60 people out so we were a little down but still a good spirit and a good time.

Our choir has had it's second practice on the cantata that we will be doing for Christmas. It is going great and I'm looking forward to a good time sharing that.

I'm thrilled about all that awaits me today as I serve the Lord. Thank you Lord for calling me to Maine!!!! I love Mainers through and through and praise God that HE would use the likes of me. Well Glory!!!!

Have a Great Day!

A Servant for Christ
