What a tremendous day we had on yesterday. The Lord blessed with great services and liberty as the Word of God was preached. Praise the Lord for the good meetings and the good spirit in the meetings.

Today we have teachers workday beginning at 10. No school for the students. We should get a lot accomplished. What a joy to serve the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Tonight is discipleship with a new family in our church. What a thrill to teach others.

My day was blessed on yesterday. I was busy in my study in the morning. After that I went and made around 35 visits at the hospital and at a home. Our bus workers and soul winners were out in force yesterday morning also. Today is our first day of the bus route and it is snowing hard. Well Praise the Lord it's where we live. We will see what happens. After that my wife and I headed up to North Baldwin. I had a good time preaching three times in a couples retreat. God moved and blessed and it was a blessing to be able to help in this ministry. We got home around 9 and called it a day.

Today I'm thrilled to be able to go to the House of God and worship with God's people. The weather is a little iffy but God knows. We will go and worship with whoever shows up. I can't wait to see what God is going to do!!!

I worked all day yesterday on the steps. We are almost done. Maybe they will be done on Monday Lord willing. Also yesterday we got dumped on here. We must have got close to 15 inches of snow. It's a winter wonderland.

Today I'm studying this morning. Then visiting in the hospital chaplaincy program at 8. Soul winning and bus visitation is at 10. After that I drive to North Baldwin for a couples retreat from 2:30 to 7:30. The LORD being my helper it's going to be a busy but yet prosperous day! Please pray that God would grant freedom and power as I preach and teach the Word of God.

Glory to God for His Blessings. Well Amen!!!

Well, you can see what I did yesterday from the picture. I spent all day working on the steps. To God be the Glory we are on the second floor. We ended up ripping them all out and starting over. Our measurements were off. Oh well you make mistakes but they are right now.

Today I will study this morning and work all day again trying to get the steps complete. Please pray that this will happen. I love working on stuff like this and especially during vacation week. It's been a wonderful week of labour. I will get some more pictures today.

Missionary candidates need to realize that work is part of the ministry. If your going to get something accomplished you can't be scared of work. When you go to a town to build a church it not only involves the spiritual side of things but also the physical. Noah did work for a 120 years on the ark. Solomon did build the temple with all his workers. Paul did make tents and so on. What a thrill to be involved in all the aspects of the ministry.

I had a great day on yesterday. I worked all day on the steps in the new building. Hopefully we will have them complete by Friday. I will get some pictures today of all that I have been doing.

Last night the Lord blessed us with a great service. I have enjoyed preaching on prayer for the last several weeks. The God of Heaven is helping us and teaching us all. Praise the Lord for what He is doing in our midst. Also last night we had a new couple make public their profession of faith. It's exciting to see new people in church.

Today I plan to work all day on the new building. Please continue to pray for the financing of the new building. I am praying that we can be in the first level by May. Can God? God Can!!!!!

I worked at the church most of the day yesterday doing carpentry work. I love to work on the church and build. It's exciting.

In the afternoon I worked on the plane getting it ready for Dave Crispell to come and get it. He arrived at 2 p.m. He flew out at 4 and called me saying that he arrived in PA around 5:30. Isn't that exciting to see how great aviation is as a tool?

In the evening our church went to hear Bro. John Jenkins preach. We had just over 20 from our church make the trip. He preached a wonderful message. I was helped and our people was also. Praise the Lord for all He is doing in our midst. We got home at 11:15 p.m. and called it a day.

Today I'm in my study preparing for tonight. Also I plan to work at the church all day building steps. Tonight is the House of God!! I'm pumped!

I worked hard yesterday on the new building till lunch. We were able to get alot done on the stairwell but had to stop until we get a word from the fire marshal. Hopefully we can talk to him this morning and then be on our way. Also yesterday afternoon I ended up changing a tire and tube on the Cherokee six. Something happened to it to make it go flat. That took a couple of hours. In the evening we had the new family that just got saved over for discipleship and counseling. We called it a day around 8 o'clock.

Today I'm working at the church most of the day. I need to take the six up the Portland to get an IFR certification on some of the instruments. Then at 5 were going over to Manchester to attend a revival meeting. It's going to be a good day! Oh for souls to be saved!

Were expecting to hear word this week on financing. Please continue to pray. We are trusting the LORD. It's so exciting to be working on the building some and seeing things come together. I can't wait until it's completely finished and we can use it to train people!! Well Glory!!

My wife and I dealt with her and she trusted Christ as her personal Saviour. Well somebody say Glory!!!! Their family will be coming over to eat with us tonight and spend some time in discipleship. Isn't it just wonderful to see what God is doing?!!!

This morning I'm in my study and then the rest of the day I will be at the building working on the stair tower. I'm pumped to be able to work at the new building and see some things finally happen.

We had a tremendous day yesterday. Had around 20 people out soul-winning and doing bus visitation. It was wonderful. Next week we start the route. I will let you know how many come but we had around 24 say they would come out. We will keep working it hard and do our best to get these kids saved and in church.

Bro. Faggart and his family stopped by in the afternoon and we had a good visit.

In the evening we had Saturday night jubilee. Wow we were packed out and Bro. Perry Jones preached a wonderful message on Dinah out of Genesis. I praise the Lord for this meeting. What a blessing it was to be a part of it.

I'm looking forward to a powerful meeting today. Please pray that God would grant freedom to be able to preach the Word of God. Pray that we could see people walk the aisle and get saved and see lives changed by the power of the Word of God!

What a powerful day I had on yesterday. The Spirit of God granted freedom as I preached two chapels north of here in Lisbon. I made some visits on the way home in Portland. In the afternoon I got some wood for Willey and went and ate at the Rice's for supper before retiring around 8. It was a prosperous day.

Today I'm in my study this morning. At 10 I'm going on soul-winning and bus visitation. In the afternoon I will study some more and read. Tonight we have Saturday night jubilee. I'm excited to see what God is going to do in the meeting tonight. Come on out for a time of jubilee!!

My day was blessed on yesterday. I was in my study in the morning and enjoyed myself. In the middle of the day I worked on the new building fixing a frozen pipe. In the evening my family watched As with Roses. What a powerful truth of Obadiah Holmes. Oh God help me to have convictions like our Baptist forefathers.

Today I'm studying early and then off to preach two chapels. This afternoon I plan to burn some of my pile in the video. How exciting it is to be in the service of the LORD!

What a wonderful day the LORD of Glory has blessed us with. It's beautiful as I type out this blog. It's a warm 27 degrees outside and not a cloud in the sky. What a mighty God we serve.

I passed my Instrument test on yesterday. Praise the LORD for that. In the afternoon I had a meeting about our building. I'm excited to think that soon we will be able to work on it. I am sensing that it will be very soon.

Our service last night was a great blessing. The HOLY SPIRIT moved in our meeting and taught us out of the Word of God about confession. As we pray the model prayer daily we are faced with our own spiritual condition. We must walk with God. The LORD is helping us in this series.

Today I'm busy about the ministry and in my study. I'm praying that I can lead someone to Christ today out visiting. Please pray that we can see some fruit in that area. Tonight our plan is to have a family over to eat with us so that we can get into their life.

I was busy with school yesterday morning. I usually go down in the morning and make for sure that all is o.k. and then go about my day. After that I spent the rest of the morning visiting with some men. I am praying that I can lead them to Christ.

In the afternoon I flew the plane for another hour. You can see by the video that we found the oil filter filled with metal. After flying the plane with a new filter for an hour nothing else was found. We feel it was left over from the old engine. Praise the Lord for this.

Also we worked on the new building to thaw out the drain line coming off the roof. Praise the LORD for how HE helped us get this done. The roof could have collapsed under the weight of the snow and ice if we didn't get that fixed. Thank you JESUS! And thank you Ron and Dad.

In the evening I worked at the airport finishing up the new oil filter installation. It was a busy and yet very profitable day.

Today I will be studying, praying, visiting, preparing for our evening meeting, finishing up my instrument proficiency test in flying and meeting with several people about our new building. Praise the LORD for what HE is doing.

A scare! Metal in oil filter determined it was from oil cooler. Next filter I put on didn't have any in it after flying for an hour. Wow! Thank you Jesus!

I was blessed on yesterday. I worked on the plane in the morning. I was able to perform the first oil change since the engine change. Also I spent some time at the school. I thank God for the good group of kids that we have. In the afternoon I took my boy and Alyssa skiing. It was a blessing and we had a good time. I took a terrible spill and thought I was hurt pretty bad but only sore. It's just my head, shoulder, and legs that are all out of joint. (smile)

Today I'm looking forward to ministering to people here in the community. I will be visiting and studying. How exciting it is to sow the seed of the Word of God. Praise God for what HE is doing here on this mission field.

May the will of GOD be accomplished as we press forward. We are going to start a bus ministry anyway because I'm kind of tired of waiting. These kids need ministered to and the time is now.

Yesterday I worked in my office in the morning. Also I made several visits to those that are saved and lost. I'm praying for a mighty move of God. The rest of the day was spent working on my IPC for flying. That stands for Instrument Proficiency Test. I had a good time but I am real rusty. It should all be worked out by Monday and I can get signed off to fly in the clouds again.

Last night I spent with my lovely family. Praise the Lord for His many blessings!

I had a good day on yesterday. I was busy in the morning in my study. Then as you can see by the pictures I was on the roof trying to fix a drain that is plugged. After that I took some oil out of our tanks in the new building and put them in the staff house. In the afternoon I took the 402 seats to the airport where they will need to be shipped to Ohio. I also made several visits yesterday and was able to talk to several about the gospel. In the evening we had a powerful service with a great crowd and a good spirit in the meeting. I have been preaching on Lord teach us to pray for several weeks now. God is speaking to us.

Today I am in my study this morning and then I will make some visits also. I will be flying down to Nashua today to work on my Instrument Proficiency test for the airplane. That should be fun and also challenging. Tonight I hope to spend some time with a lost family. Oh that we could see people saved. That's my heart and that's why we moved up here in 1996. It's our desire to see families saved and put back together the way God intended them to be.

Please continue to pray for many needs that we have. God knows what they are and we are expecting that HE is going to work some miracles!!!! Well Glory to God!!! Amen!!! Whoopee!!! (Internet shouting if you didn't know)

What a powerful day I had on yesterday. The LORD JESUS CHRIST moved and blessed in our services. I had freedom and liberty to preach the Word of God. The brethren were hungry to hear the Word and for that I'm so grateful.

We have another student in our school starting today. It's a young lady that got saved a month ago. I'm thrilled that she is in the school now and she will be growing in the Grace of our God. What a wonderful thing it is to see the LORD putting it all together.

Also today we have staff meeting this afternoon. It's going to be a wonderful day!

Thank you for your prayers and concern for our ministry.

Our family and our aviation ministry has lost a lot of support. We are sending out a letter today that will detail some needs. Would you please read it and consider what God would have each church to do. God has planted us here to reach souls and start churches but we need resources to be able to do this.

In the evening I had a good time up in Lisbon. Praise God for the faithfulness of Bro. Garnette and his wife.

We finally made it home in terrible weather conditions. God was gracious as the roads were treacherous.

I'm thrilled that today we get to go and worship the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I am overcome with joy at the thoughts that God chose me to preach His precious Word!

Jeremiah 26:2 Thus saith the LORD; Stand in the court of the LORD’S house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD’S house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word:

Here in this text we learn that Jeremiah is told to stand. Don't sit, run, or quit, but I want you to stand. The God of Heaven is saying the same thing to us today. Stand for me in this day in which we live. Stand at your job, stand on the street corner, stand up for what is right.

Second he is told to speak. The devil is such a liar. He wants us not to speak but we need to be like this prophet of old and speak. Speak the truth in love! Speak the Word of God to all people! Lift up our voices like a trumpet! When was the last time we spoke for HIM?!!

Last he was told here to not diminish a word. Jeremiah I don't want you to water down the Word of God. Everything I tell you I want you to say. We are living in a day when people continually say, "Preacher don't be so hard on us." God is telling all of us to not diminish. Share the whole BOOK! Stand, speak, don't diminish anything.

How true these words are to us today. Let's be men and woman of the Word of God. Let us continue to see God move in power and great glory!!

Today is a snow day and I am so excited about it. I can't wait to be in the Word of God today. Glory to God and the Lamb forever!!!

I had a great day yesterday. I was in my study in the morning and then at school. After that I flew to N.H. to eat lunch with a pastor. In the afternoon I went skiing with some of the young people of our church. We got home around 10.

Today I plan on studying this morning, visiting some in the community and working in my shop. We are suppose to get walloped with a big snow storm so we will wait to see how that works out.

Keep praying for us. I need it and our church needs it as we seek the face of God for the ministry.

Oh yeah on another note, last night I got another call about our support. We have had two churches drop our financial support last week and yesterday someone called and wants to talk to me about whether we need support or not for the future. Would you please pray that God's will be done. We are trusting God to supply all of our needs through this time but it does get kind of bothersome to lose so much support. Only God can keep it all together!!!

Also pray to about our oil bills. People in the south don't realize but it cost a lot to heat houses up here. Our oil bill for our two church properties was over 1,100 dollars this month. The usage is not far off from last year but the price of oil us up more than a dollar a gallon. This hasn't taken the LORD by surprise but it is big. Oh how we need the LORD through this!!! "Unto thee oh LORD do I lift up my soul"!!! Well Glory!!
