Enjoying the Journey

I have had a verse on my mind the last few days. Proverbs 21:31 says, “The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.” We plan and prepare. We do our part, but only God can protect us and cause us to be victorious. Our lives and labors are in His hands. These are unusual days to travel and minister but I give God the praise for His constant care and keeping. He has been so very good to us. Last week Tammy and I dropped off both of our girls (!) at Crown College. We are very grateful for them and thankful that they have a place like Crown College to attend. God…

As many of you know we have been praying and working for some time toward a regional God Bless America Rally in our “Jerusalem” of southern West Virginia. 33 churches are laboring together for this gospel effort and there is a real expectancy about what the Lord will do! This is a pivotal time in our nation and people are searching. With the COVID-19 concerns large gatherings have become impossible for a period of time. The very people we want to reach – the unchurched and unevangelized – will be hesitant to come to any mass meeting for the next few weeks. Our door to door effort leading up to the crusade would also be very difficult. God has led…

The month of August has been a month of transition as our oldest daughter, Morgan, has begun college and Lauren and Grant have returned to school. God has graciously allowed me to spend a little extra time at home and with our family during these days. Now we are about to begin a very busy fall season. We publish our schedule month by month along with periodic updates on meetings because of so many people who have expressed interest in praying with us. The purpose of our itinerary is not just for information – it is for intercession! Would you take this month’s schedule of meetings and add it to your prayer list? Sunday, September 2, Morning and Evening Services…

What a precious summer we have had so far! God has helped us and we have seen Him at work in so many places. Thank you for praying for us and for those we have the privilege to minister to. August is a special month in our family full of birthday celebrations and, this year, our first child going off to college! (Pray for mom and dad!)

“Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful” (1 Corinthians 4:2). We all want to be faithful…but what does that mean? Faithfulness is not a schedule; it is a spirit. There are many people who are present but not present. Fathers who are at home but not really with their family. Church members who are in the meetings but not truly engaged. Preacher’s who are going through the motions but have lost heart. There is a difference between faithfulness and mere routine. Vance Havner once observed, “A rut is just a grave with both ends knocked out of it!” Routines can become ruts. Ruts are death. Here is the real issue: faithful to what? Many a…

It is hard to imagine that we are near the end of the first quarter of 2018! Next week we will publish our quarterly family newsletter with several special reports. We would love to send it to you. If you have not subscribed to our email newsletter you may do so here. We have seen a great number of people come to Christ in recent days and give God the glory for allowing us to be a part of His work at this time. I am praying that the coming month will be especially fruitful. Thank you for praying with us about these meetings… Sunday-Tuesday, April 1-3, Revival – Beth Haven Baptist Church, Denver, NC, Pastor David Mims Sunday, April…

Everyone is busy this week. Shopping. Eating. Cooking. Eating. Traveling. Eating. Wrapping. Eating. It is easy to forget the things that truly matter in the hurry and haste. Perhaps you are working feverishly from a Christmas list. Would you add these things to your list this year? Don’t forget Christ. Remember it is His birth we are celebrating! Spend some quiet time communing with Him each day. Set aside moments for the Word and prayer. Tell Him you love Him and show Him by what you do with your time. Don’t forget your family. Is that possible at Christmas? Certainly. We can be so distracted doing things for them that we forget to be with them. Be present. Talk. Laugh.…

The last few days of March will be very busy. We are excited about the opportunities before us in April. Only the Lord knows how long we have to serve Him – Jesus could come today! Until then, we want to be faithful in the work of revival and the gospel. Several folks have asked about our itinerary recently. Although we have tentatively scheduled meetings well into the future, we only post our schedule online about 60 days out. If you have a question about meetings beyond what is posted please feel free to email us at any time. It has been a joy to reunite with so many friends while on the road. God bless you for your continued prayers for…
