Greetings in Jesus Name

I got up this morning and thanked God for the veterans of these United States of America. I praise God for the oppurtunity to know such great patriots. Praise God for the freedom that we have today!

Praise God for the good day we had on yesterday. I think our Sunday Night attendance was greater than the morning attendance. We had a wonderful time with one lady getting saved and another getting right with God. Praise God for the Spirit of God moving in a mighty way.

I'm thrilled about tomorrow. It's the day that we start tearing out down at 62 High Street our new building. Come prepared to work hard and lets see what all we can get done!

Have a wonderful day.

Our church now owns the building and the lot across the street from it known as 62 High Street and lot 0! It was a great delight to be a part of the proceedings to sign the paperwork that made this transaction possible. Glory to God for all He has done and is going to do!

I spent most of the rest of the day working on my shed. I should have it done today.

I have already been studying this morning. I want to feed my sheep tomorrow at Calvary Baptist Church of Sanford Maine. Oh that I would be filled with the Holy Ghost!!! I long to serve the Lord and it's the joy of my life to be able to do that.

For some that are wondering, work begins on Tuesday at 62 High Street. Bring hammers, crow bars, gloves, masks, and alot of energy!

I had a wonderful day on yesterday. It was very busy with alot of things getting accomplished. I worked on paperwork for the building stuff early. I flew out of Sanford around 6:30 a.m and got back early morning. Everything is all set for a Friday closing at 9:30 a.m. I took my mom out for her birthday. Praise the Lord for a good time. In the afternoon I studied and prepared for the evening service. The Lord blessed in a great a mighty way as I preached through Proverbs 1. Praise the Lord for all HE is doing.

Today I will study a little this morning and then fly up to pick up Bill. He is going to be helping me on my shed today. Lord willing we will get a good portion of it finished. Tonight is the kids closing program. They are excited that this is the last day of school.

Their is still so much to do and so little time to do it. Oh that God would rend the heavens and send revival to our town and church! I desire to see souls saved and discipled and a church established for His Glory. Would you pray that this would continue to happen?

It's a beautiful morning here in Maine. I got up excited about this evening. What a delight to be able to have the freedom to go to the House of God and worship our Saviour! What a joy to go and bear one another's burdens in prayer. I can't wait to see what God has for us tonight as we gather together. The Lord has burdened me to continue the series in Proverbs. I am thrilled to get to study and pray and prepare for tonight. See you there? Fellowhsip meal at 6:15 church at 7.

My computer is fixed again as you can tell.

I had a wonderful time yesterday playing in a Pro/Am on an exclusively private course over on the beach in Scarborough. It was a blessing to be around guys I am trying to win to Christ and have fun in turn.

In the evening we had fun celebrating a little bit more my beautiful wife's birthday. She went flower shopping yesterday and had a good time. In the evening we went on a short motorbike ride to get some air in our hair. It was a good day.

I'm going to study a little this morning and then I fly out at 6:30 a.m. to go pick up the check for 150,000 to pay for our building. We are suppose to close on Friday morning at 9:30 a.m. It's coming together and boy oh boy are we going to be busy all summer. It's going to be worth it when you think about all the souls that will be saved and lives changed.

Greetings in the Mighty and Powerful Name of the Lord Jesus Christ

To God be the Glory great things He has done! I had a wonderful day on yesterday. My family ministered in song and I preached twice in Western Mass at a brand new church the Maranatha Baptist Church. I praise God for traveling mercies and a wonderful time in the Lord. We drove back to be at our evening service at 6. The church was comfortably full and the Spirit of God moved last night in power and glory. We had an individual give a piece of gold last night in the service. We think it's worth around 1200 dollars. Isn't this just wonderful to see what God is doing in our midst. I do bless His Holy Name for the Calvary Baptist Church of Sanford Maine! Please continue to pray because we have a little ways to go on our fund raising. We are now just over 35,000 and we need to be a 50,000 before the end of the month!

Today I plan on working on my wood shed again. I need to get it done this week. Also I am working on the details of the closing of the building. Please pray that everything goes smoothly! These are exciting times!

It's foggy here this morning so we are waiting for it to burn off and then we will fly over to western Mass and be a part of a chartering service for a brand new church. Isn't it exciting that God is moving and working to build more churches in the Northeast!

Greetings in the Miracle Working powerful and precious Name of our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ

I had a powerful day on yesterday. I was up early and went to breakfast with a man I trying to lead to Christ. We flew out around 6:30 yesterday morning and had a good time together. What a joy it is to share the gospel with people. I am praying he will be saved soon.

I worked a good part of the day on my wood shed. I need to get it done this week. Please continue to pray that the Lord will give me wisdom and grace to finish this project. Wood is an important part of the life of a Mainer. Burning wood saves us over 5,000 dollars a year not only on heat but also hot water. We burn wood year around in the outside wood boiler.

In the afternoon I went and visited Pauline Cox. Please pray that the Lord would heal her of pancreitis.

In the evening my family went and played nine holes of golf. I played good from the championship tees. I enjoyed the time with my family in the evening.

Today I am studying and preparing for tomorrow. I will preaching several times in Massachusetts for Bro. Dave Short. Please pray for traveling mercies as my family and I will be flying down and doing our best to make it back for choir practice at 5.

I am thrilled to see what God is going to continue to do in the raising of our funds for the building. Praise God for what HE is doing in our midst. Also I will be working more on my shed and visiting some. Their is a piano recital at our church this afternoon so I'm looking forward to hearing my kids play. Tonight I would like to go on a date with my family. What a day to serve!

Greetings in the Mighty and Matchless Name of our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ

What a wonderful day I had on yesterday. God was so good to help us and encourage us through out the day. I worked some on my woodshed until I got word about a hospital visit I had to make. After that I flew up to the capital to meet three other preachers to do some historical study of a great Man of God Isaac Case. After flying home I made a couple of visits and then went off to church. The God of Heaven met with us and I do bless His Holy Name. What a joy to experience the fullness of the Holy Ghost in our services. God is sooooooooo Good!!!

This morning I am getting ready to fly out to a country grass airstrip to spend some time with a man I'm trying to lead to Christ. Please pray. When I get back I'm still pushing hard to get things done around the house before we start the renovation of our new building. What a joy it is to serve the KING!!!

"But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus" This is what our Great God is doing with the money we are raising for the acquisition and renovation of or buildings. It's so exciting to see this right before our very eyes. I never tire of being in the center of all of it. Well Glory!!

My day was very busy yesterday and capped off by taking a mission team of 25 to Bridgeton Maine. Our church that we have here in Sanford is such a blessing. I appreciate all of those that went and "set as a church" for this new church plant.

Today I am busy working on the wood shed in the morning and then off on a little Baptist History this afternoon. When we get back we will prepare ourselves for the service tonight. We are looking forward to a powerful meeting at Calvary Baptist Church of Sanford Maine. We are an independent fundamental Baptist Church that believes God has inspired and preserved His Word for us in the King James Authorized Version of the Bible. Praise God!!!

What a wonderful day I had on yesterday. I worked hard all day. I also celebrated my youngest girl's birthday down at the coast. We had a great family date and enjoyed the fellowship immensely.

I am so excited about all that God is doing that I find it hard to sleep at night. I was wide awake at 4 this morning just thinking about all that the Lord is doing and is going to do this summer. I am so honored that HE would use the likes of me. I do bless HIS NAME for HIS call on my life.

Please continue to pray that the remaining 16,900 dollars would come in. Were trying to raise 50,000 this month and were almost there. Thus far 33,100 has come in. After that we will begin to raise the renovation cost.

I talked to the town on yesterday and we can renovate anything that is not structural so here we go with the outside of the building the first of June. Prayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy hard that we can get everything finished before we start school in the fall.

I'm excited about helping the New Heights Baptist Church this week on Wednesday. Also our midweek service is on Thursday this week. See you at 6:15 for the fellowship meal and 7 for service.

What a wonderful day I had on yesterday. We all were up at 5 preparing to fly out at 7 to Houlton Maine. The Lord gave us traveling mercies there and back. I will say it was quite bumpy with moderate to severe turbulence at times but the Lord blessed. I praise His Name for how He used us there at Cornerstone yesterday. Glory to God for His blessings!

Last night was just a blessing to be back with the people I love here in Sanford. We had a good crowd and a excellent spirit in the meeting last night. I announced to the church that we had received a 20,000 gift which puts our fund raising to 33,100. We are trying to raise 50,000 this month. Please pray!

After my devotions this morning I am going to work around the farm for a while. Then their is staff meeting. It's Abigails birthday today so we will celebrate with her by going to fly kites at the beach. It's going to be a wonderful family day. I love my family and church family and thank God for how HE is blessing.

Keep praying because the devil is mad and he would love to stop what God is doing here and everywhere around the world. I'm glad I serve the one who is all powerful!!

Praise the Lord for the good day on yesterday. I studied in the morning and afternoon. Then I flew up to Islesboro to spend some time mentoring Bro. Bill and chatting a while. I took the Tooley's with me as you see in the picture from yesterday. We had good flights and a good time of fellowship. Last night was an exceptional service. We had a large crowd and a great spirit in the meeting. Our church voted 100% last night to go forward with the purchase of another building. This will be an annex of Calvary Baptist Church. It's one house down the road. The building is almost 9,000 sq.ft. We plan on starting the renovations the end of this month and going crazy working all summer long. Anybody want to help?

I'm working around the house today on my woodshed. Also the Tooleys are still here so we will be fellowshipping some to. Were also looking forward to spending some time with Mrs. Isbell. What a blessing that she came in last night and was a part of our service. Praise the Lord for the opportunity to see her and hear her testify of what God is doing there in the country of Ukraine.

Thank you for your prayers.

1Jo 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

I want to take a few lines today and talk about walking in continuous cleansing. I don't know if it's just me but I find I must come for cleansing often. What happens in our life is we fail to call sin, sin! We get irritable, quick tempered, complain, murmur, gripe, groan and we think that this is not sin. This grieves the Holy Ghost and we must come for cleansing. The good news is that there is a fountain filled with blood! Well Glory!! As we walk in the light as He is in the light we are promised fellowship one with another and cleansing through the Blood of Christ. Now that ought to cause anybody to shout. May the God of Heaven help us to be cleansed through the blood of Christ today!

I worked at the airport most of the day yesterday. It had a been quite a while since the belly of the Cherokee six was washed so I did that. I also put two new pins in both doors. They were rusting out and making a mess of things. I played golf with my boy a little in the afternoon. Last night some missionary friends of ours came by. They will be with us through Friday. Praise God for the Tooleys and all God has used them to do.

Today I will be studying and preparing for tonight. Also I plan on flying up and spending some time with Bro. Schoppe in mentoring. Maybe I will have some time to prepare for the wood shed that I'm building. Pray much for the service tonight that God would move in power and great glory on the meeting. I don't want these Wednesday meetings to be boring. I desire the power of God to be present stirring and working!!
