What a wonderful day I had on yesterday. I studied a lot of the day preparing for the night service. We had a wonderful service. To God be the Glory for what He did in our midst. I praise God for our good people at the Calvary Baptist Church.

Today I'm flying out to Ohio to deliver some seats for the 402. Please pray for traveling mercies. It should be a good day for flying.

I shared with the church last night about God closing the door to the Catholic church. Praise God for His leading. We are now full steam ahead with the renovation of 62 High Street to be in it by Sept 1st! Glory!!

What a powerful day I had on yesterday. We were up around 5 having devotions and getting ready to go door to door in Jackman. At 10 we took off as teams and knocked on almost all the doors in the town. In the afternoon I flew home to pick us Mrs. Amy. We drove back getting there at 6:15. We had a great service with 15 coming from the home church at Calvary here in Sanford and 26 in attendance. The Lord be praised for what He did during the revival there in this new community. We all got home around 12:30 a.m. and called it a day.

Today I'm studying and working preparing for tonight's service. What a joy to go to the House of God and see what HE is going to do in our midst. May the Power of God fall and fresh and a new on us as we worship Him tonight and receive instruction from the Word of God! Well Glory!!!

In the afternoon I studied some more and also fixed an electrical problem at the cottage. The Wednesday service was a huge blessing. I bless the Lord for how He spoke to us during the meeting. I preached out of Nehemiah 1 on the man that God used to rebuild the walls around Jerusalem. I want to be that kind of man. We are constantly in the building mode here in Maine and I want to be that man that is burdened, tender hearted, sensitive and trusting in the Word of God!!!!

My family is getting ready to fly out to N.C. I will be here all week by myself. Please have mercy on me and invite me over to eat at night (smile). Actually I'm a big boy and can take care of myself but I'm playing it for all it's worth with my wife. Ha Ha!

What a powerful day we had on yesterday. I preached on faith all day out of Hebrews 11. God moved in a wonderful way in our midst. In the afternoon we flew up to the island to cover for Pastor Bill Schoppe. He is hurting bad after falling off a roof. Please pray for Him. We barely made it in. I shot the approach into Rockland and got under the fog bank and then flew visually over to the island. Coming home the weather had improved some and I was able to get back into Sanford easy enough. I appreciate Todd Sprague going with me and teaching me along the way. He flys with Wiggins airways and has been a big help to me. In the evening I preached again on faith and the Lord encouraged us to increase our faith.

Today I plan on catching up around the house on some chores. My wood is stacked for the year. I have 16 chords under cover. Praise the Lord for Kyle who has helped me so much this year with my things around the house. I need to cut some summer wood today. I burn wood 12 months out of the year to help offset cost. Their are a lot of showers that take place in this house so it's nice not to have to buy wood.

Please pray that God would move in power and glory on our church as we seek to purchase a new campus.

What a wonderful day I had on yesterday. My wife and I drove up to Jackman around 10 a.m. We arrived there at 2:15. After soul-winning for a few hours we prepared for our first service at 5. With those from Calvary that drove up and the Easterbrooks we had 18 in attendance. It was providential what the Lord did for us last night. I appreciate the goodness of the Lord in helping us to have our first service and getting off to a powerful start. We are already praying for the right man to train to move to Jackman and live and pastor those people. Pray with us that God would raise up a man to move to that community or be saved in that community that will pastor these people.

Today I'm excited about what God is going to do among us here at Calvary. I can't wait to go to the House of God.

Be in prayer for Pastor Bill Schoppe who fell off a roof yesterday. Pray for God to heal him up. Nothing is broke but he is bruised up real bad. If the weather is good enough to get into Rockland we need to fly up there for the two o'clock service today. Pray that God will work that out. We would fly up to Rockland and shoot the approach, get under the fog and then fly VFR over to the island.

It's going to be a wonderful day I just know it!

Moving stuff to get chapel ready

Greetings in Jesus Name

Now how do you like that picture. This was taken the other day when we were getting the chapel ready (garage that is 14 x 26)to have services in it.

Starting churches is a faith venture. We step out in faith trusting God to put the things together so that a church can be planted for His glory and honor. Their are alot of variables that have to come together that only God can bring together. HE is working in Jackman to accomplish His will.

On the home front here in Sanford He is working also. Their is no doubt in my mind that the Spirit of God is dealing with people about their souls. God is looking for a group of people that will believe Him!

Pray for me today as I go to Jackman and have our first church service.

Pray for me today as I study and prepare for our meetings here in Sanford tomorrow.

Pray for a supernatural miracle to take place that will sell all of our buildings so we can press forward to our new campus. Only God Can!

It was one year ago today that God in His great power guided me to a field just south of Augusta Maine and I was able to dead stick the Cherokee Six into it. After maneuvering under a set of power of lines I landed with not a scratch on the plane. To God be the Glory a year later for His faithfulness and protection.

I'm excited about all that God has in store for us today. Tonight Bro. Kyle will be preaching. I'm praying for a power packed service.

Many doors have closed in Jackman in regards to a place to meet. It looks like we will go with what we originally decided with and that is to meet in the Easterbrooks garage. Lord willing we will be doing that this Saturday night.

Here on the home front we are praying and waiting on the Lord to open doors for us in reference to a new building. The fire marshal told me two days ago that we cannot meet in our building. Things are coming to a head. God is moving!! What a ride!

A lady that we had talked to about the Lord came forward yesterday morning and made public her profession. I'm glad she got it settled! Well Glory. We were packed out both services. The program last night was a huge success. Glory to God for how the Lord has blessed and moved. Elisabeth finally graduated last night. She did a good job with her speech and her song. It's just wonderful to see the kids growing up and maturing. Bless the Lord oh my soul!

I had someone come up to me last night and offer to let us use 100,000 dollars as long as we want with no interest. That's kind of exciting!!! Our church has been praying for that amount exactly. Now we will see what other door the Lord will open up for us. Please pray that the God of Heaven would do something supernaturally this week to guide us and show himself mighty.

Today is catch up day. I have a lot of work around the house and cottage to do. Please pray for me that I can get it all done. Also pray for a special meeting that a church board is having tonight in Jackman. We are trying to secure the facilities of the congregational church in Jackman Moose River to hold for services. I may know something tonight.

It's exciting to see all that God is doing in our midst. I stand in awe of Him!

I wish time would permit for me to share with you what all happened on yesterday. God moved in power and glory as I flew up to Jackman Maine. The Lord is opening doors for us to start a church there. I will know more about where we will be meeting at hopefully by Monday night. We visited alot of families while we were there and had many open doors. Praise God for His guiding hand. The Lord also gave us some wonderful flights there and back. It's normally a 7 hour drive and we were able to fly it in around two hours.

When I got back I visited in the hospital for a little over an hour and made around 15 visits. God was with me and helping me.

In the evening we celebrated Joyce's birthday and Elisabeth's graduation. We called it a night around 8:30. To God be the Glory great things He hath done.

After that we had a wonderful staff meeting. Praise God for the great staff that the Lord has blessed us with. In the evening my wife and I went visiting and soul winning in Kennebunkport. We had a tremendous visit. We got home around 9:45 and called it a night.
