On the move ...

God has been so good.

Since leaving Maine again in early April, God has given us one good meeting after another. Everywhere we go, the Spirit is already there preparing the way and ordering our steps.

 

We began this leg of the journey with a Wednesday night visit to Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Smithfield, KY, to hear some great preaching. From there, we headed up to Walbridge, in northern Ohio, where I was privileged to preach at Grace Bible Baptist Church during the morning and evening services. Pastor David Stogsdill and the folks there have a great heart for church-planting in their own Judea – and there is a tremendous need for sound churches in their county.

From Walbridge, we went to far western Kentucky, to a missions conference at Faith Missionary Baptist Church in Benton (Pastor Bill Amberg). The Spirit was there, preparing the ground and enriching our hearts.

After Benton, we spent a few days at the There's Hope Camp Meeting at Immanuel Missionary Baptist Church (Pastor Doug Powell), where God allowed me to preach on Wednesday.

After that, we traveled to Whitley City, Kentucky, and I was honored to preach at Second Baptist Church of Whitley (Pastor Mike Casada). In the evening I preached at Lower Hickory Grove Baptist Church in Revelo (Pastor Mark Sewell). At both meetings, God was there in a powerful, humbling way and ministered to my me. The day was one of the highlights of our journey.

From Kentucky, we headed to the city of De Queen, in south western Arkansas, for a Wednesday evening meeting at Grace Baptist Church with Pastor Tim Johnson. Grace is one of those churches with such a hunger to win souls to Christ that you can feel it when you go in the building. I enjoyed preaching there and fellowshipping afterward.

The road then took us to southeastern Missouri, where I stayed in the prophet's chamber at Blessed Hope Baptist Church in Farmington, while visiting churches in the region. I was not only honored to preach at Blessed Hope, but I also went to jail for my first time – to preach at the county jail in Farmington.

I visited at Union Baptist Temple in Union, MO, and presented the ministry; Emmanuel Baptist Church in Doe Run, MO; and heard some good preaching at Calvary Baptist Church in Campbell, MO. During this time, I was able to schedule a number of additional meetings in Missouri for a return trip in October of this year.

A three-day camp meeting at Calvary Baptist Church in Push, TN, was next on our schedule – what a blessing the meeting was!

We left from there on Saturday and headed right down to Wynne, AR, for the “There Is a Cause!” camp meeting at Smith Chapel Baptist Church (Pastor J.T. Baskin), where I was not only blessed to hear some Spirit-filled preaching but was also allowed to present our ministry and talk about how God's hand is moving in Maine, which resulted in some more church visits for our schedule in the fall. Praise God!

Next in line is a two-day layover at Living Waters Youth Camp in Hayden, AL, then a missions conference in Georgia. After Georgia, we will be visiting three churches in West Virginia, then heading back to Maine for about ten days,

We praise God that we have been able to make this trip in the minivan provided by Calvary Baptist Church of Sanford, Maine. We have averaged over 26 miles per gallon – almost double the mileage we were getting in the passenger van! Praise God! He is good!

I am looking forward to a great summer.
