(KJV) Psalms 90:12
So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom.

Today is interesting in that we do not normally have this day.. Another day to witness to someone, another day to give God the Glory, another day to spend in the service of the King!

I want to ask you what will will you do with your time? May the God of Heaven help us to be time conscious and redeem the time because the days are evil.

What a blessing yesterday! Good preaching, good food, a lot of flying preachers around. My soul was truly fed.

Today I'm preaching this morning and would request your fervent prayer. Pray that God would use me to deliver the
Message in the power of the Holy Ghost with great liberty! Thank you in advance. Tonight I go to my home church. I'm excited about that already. I thank the Lord for their faithfulness to me down through the years.

You can see from the pictures that I made it down yesterday. It was a beautiful day to fly but I did have a 30 knot headwind the whole way. I praise the Lord for traveling mercies. After I got down I took several preachers on rides to introduce them to using aviation as a tool to reach people and start churches.

The service last night was a great blessing. The Word of God fed my soul. Thanks be to God! It was a blessing to see so many people that I have not seen for so long.

Today is services all day and I will also be flying some. I have already been in prayer asking the God of Heaven to stir hearts and change lives today. I know He will do that. Bless His Holy Name!

Thank you for your love and prayers for me and my family.

What a powerful day on yesterday. We had tons of visitors and a great service. We broke our Sunday School attendance again. What a blessing to see so many people coming out for church. Also we broke our bus record with 52 riding the bus. Well Glory! More kids being reached with the Gospel! Our afternoon service was a huge blessing also. I praise God for what He is doing in the small town of Jackman. The evening service was exciting. It's a thrill to be in the service of the King!

Today I'm flying out to go to N.C. to preach on Wednesday morning and evening. Pray for traveling mercies for us there and back. Pray also that God would touch me as I preach the Word of God. I will be down helping WGCR 720 raise the necessary funds for the station for the year.

I enjoyed skiing yesterday with Benjamin and Alyssa. It was a blessing to get away for a few hours. I don't like skiing in thick 10 inch wet powder. My legs were verrryyyyyy tired. Oh well I'm getting older.

Today I will teaching this morning, preaching this morning, and this afternoon in our mission church, and preaching tonight. What a joy to be called of God to love God's people and minister the Word of God! Whoopee!!

I had a great day yesterday. I worked around the church in the morning. Also I had a good study in the Scriptures in the morning. In the afternoon we went as a family down to watch Victory play with Pastor Fuller. We got in around 9:30 last night. It was a real blessing.

Today my boy and I are going skiing for the second time this year. They got 10 inches of new snow so that will be fun. We got all rain pretty much. Their might be a 1/2 inch of snow out there this morning as I type this out.

I can't wait to see what God is going to do in our meeting tomorrow. I'm praying for the power of God to fall on our services. Pray with me that we could see a great day of people being saved and lives being changed!

I was early in my study yesterday morning. I had a powerful time looking into the Eternal Word of God. After that I went visiting.

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

Yesterday was a tough day for one of the families in our church. We found out yesterday morning that their son in his late twenties was killed in a car accident. My wife and went down and spent time with them in Kittery. Please continue to pray for the Johnson family that the God of all Comfort would grant Grace and Mercy to them during this time.

In the afternoon I worked on the plane and studied and prepared for the evening service. We had a power packed service last night as I preached on how Jesus Christ was angry and grieved because of the hardness of the pharisees heart. I preached on how we are not to have a hard heart. God moved and blessed and granted great liberty to preach the Eternal Word of God! What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for an old fashioned church that still believes in preaching and the power of the Holy Ghost!

Today I'm studying, visiting, and possibly flying some doing recurrent training. It's going to be a wonderful day. Pray especially for my wife today as it's tax time and she will be preparing all of that stuff for our taxes.

What a wonderful day on yesterday. I praise the Lord for the traveling mercies that He gave us in flying down to CT to see my daughter and drop off three men to pick up an airplane. When I got back to the airport the other airplane was working right so I took them back with me. I'm glad my appointment went longer or they would have been stuck. Last night was the playoff game. We lost the game but our boys played the best they have ever played. I was so excited to see them do good! It was a great season.

Today I'm studying for tonight and also possibly going golfing with my boy today. Can you believe that? We are on winter vacation and our life is very busy all the time so it's nice to do some other things this week. We will have to go south a bit because last night we got a dusting of snow.

What a great time I had yesterday in the Word of God. I enjoyed reading in Leviticus about the year of jubilee and also about how God does not want us to walk contrary to His ways. I studied other passages in Mark with great delight. What an amazing Book!

I also worked around the house and studied for my airplane bi-annual and stuff like that. I took a lost man with me to the airport and spent some time with him talking. God is moving. In the evening my family went out on a date.

Today I'm up early studying, then we will fly down to CT to spend a lunch with Elisabeth. After that we have a playoff game tonight. It's going to be a glorious day in the Lord.

Mission team to Jackman yesterday

February 20th 2012 Report on our Big Day!

Greetings in the Glorious Name of the Lord Jesus Christ

The Lords day on yesterday was just absolutely tremendous! God moved in power and great glory on all the services. Our total number for our big day was 180 there in the morning. We were pushing for 200 but still broke all records. We broke our Sunday School record with 122. What's exciting is we broke it with new visitors. Because of vacation many were out of town and so our bus ministry attendance was down somewhat. It was truly an exciting day. We had several raise their hands for prayer about salvation but no one responded. Many of these were first time visitors to church so we will let the seed of the Word of God work in their hearts.

The afternoon service was a great blessing in Jackman. I took six with me. It was a plane load but the C402 did a great job.

The evening service was packed out with people and the power of God. Our young people sang super. The spirit of conviction was working in the invitation but no one was saved. God has definately stirred our hearts lately. Our services have had the touch of God on them!

Today I'm studying and then flying down to take Elisabeth out for lunch with my family. We are on winter break. I look forward to taking some time off this week with my family and resting (smile).

Yesterday was tremendous. God moved in power and glory on our morning chapel with a stirring in our hearts as I preached on The Childrens Ministry out of Mark. Jesus has a lot to say about how we are to minister to children.

In the afternoon I worked at the church on different projects. Also we drove up to Madison for the games. The volleyball team lost but the basketball team won. We had a wonderful night. Praise the Lord for traveling mercies.

I enjoyed the maintenance hat I wore all day yesterday. I made a custom threshold for the nursery, and hung the sanctuary speakers. We also swept all the sand up in the front of the church and cleaned out the basement of the church. Thanks to Pastor Dave and Rob Parker for the help. Bro. Tim Martel was trained last night at 8 p.m. to burnish floors and I left him down there to do that all the way up in the evening.

Today I'm studying this morning, preaching chapel at 10:50 and then having lunch with all the school. I will also have a chance to do some maintenance on the buildings today to. This afternoon is the kids last ball game up in Madison. That should be fun to go to.

Love you all.

I had a great day on yesterday. I ended up not flying in the morning so in turn I did some things around the house that needed to be done. I bought an old skid steer for the snow removal at the church. I delivered it down there. Its name is Skeeter the Skid steer (smile). I name all my equipment because it gives them a personality. I know I'm crazy but that's o.k. it's a fun life! I took my wife out on a date for lunch. In the afternoon I hung cabinet doors. Also we had staff meeting. In the evening I went to revival meeting at Standish. Praise the Lord for two great messages.

Today I'm studying this morning, discipleship after that, visiting, flying, and making some more cabinet doors. Tonight I going visiting again. Oh yeah, I talked with the man about the gray house and he said 140,000 thousand (frown). I said I wasn't going to counter but he said throw me a number, I told him I would give him 50,000 for it all in a month. He said no thank you. God knows! I'm not paying 140,000 for a lot in this market. Continue to pray God is moving and working. I told him if he changed his mind to give me a call or look me up. Isn't this fun!

Glory to God for all He is doing! We had great attendance in all the services. We broke our Sunday School record a week before our big day. We had 121 in attendance. We are trying for 200 next week. The C402 is a joy to fly to Jackman. What a blessing to have it as a tool in God's service. Thanks to Todd Sprague for helping out on the flight in the afternoon. I would have a picture but it was 4 degrees when we landed at Jackman on a ice covered runway with 30 knot winds. It was colddddddddddddd! No time for pictures (smile).

Today I'm studying this morning, working on my IPC for flying the 402 (instrument proficiency test)hanging cabinet doors, and going to a special meeting tonight in Standish. It's going to be a blessed day!

What a wonderful day on yesterday. I taught Bible in the morning and then spent most of the day in my shop working on cabinets for the family in my church. I spent the day with one prayer request on my heart. What a joy to pray! I was praying about the new land across the street from our annex. Somehow God is going to work this out. I just know He is!

In the evening we had a tremendous service as I preached on the Young man that had no sense out of Proverbs 7. The spirit of coviction was on our services. After choir practice we had someone get saved. Well Glory to God!!!! This young man had been under conviction for a few weeks. Thanks be to God for what the Lord is doing.

I had a tremendous day on yesterday. I was very busy with ministering to people and loving them and leading them. What a joy to be a Servant of God.

I wish I had the time to share with you what God is doing in our ministry but this page will not suffice. Would you please pray about a new property that just came available on yesterday. We have been burdened about this property for sometime and I got real burdened yesterday to the point that I went and found out who owned it. To my amazement the man that had been living there just moved out and now the property is ready for someone to have. Our church people know it the gray house across from our annex. We want the property to increase our parking and also to put a multi use building on (gym, childrens chapel, youth room, etc.... Only God could do this. We need so much money to make it happen. We have been meeting nightly for prayer and we have seen God move in power and glory this week on different fronts. We are continuing to pray and seek the face of God for the finances of all of this. What would just be wonderful would be to pay everything off and have no payments. I believe God!

Today I'm teaching Bible, making cabinets, studying and visiting, and preaching tonight at church. I can't wait to see what God is going to do!

In the afternoon I worked on some cabinets. Also we had our weekly staff meeting which went real well. In the evening we had prayer meeting at the church to pray for souls, revival, and the finances that we so desperately need. God knows!

As you can see from the pictures I made it home with the C402! To God be the Glory Great things He has done! What a joy to fly it back to Maine to be in ministry. Everything worked great on the flight and I averaged around 220 miles an hour. That's covering some real estate (smile). On the way back I picked up Pastor Dave Crispell and one of the men from his church in a little airfield in western Pa. It was neat to go in and out of there. I think it was around 2500ft. What a blessing to be able to give them a lift so they could come and get their airplane.

Today I'm studying and working around the house. Tonight we are inviting somebody from the community to come and eat with us. It's going to be a wonderful day in the Lord!
