This is our Newsletter and Quarterly Report for the 1st quarter of 2008. See our church website for the outlines of the latest sermons preached on Sunday mornings. In our afternoon services we continue to study a survey of things in the New Testament. The guest speaker for our anniversary services in January was Elder Garner Smith, Faith Missionary Baptist Church, in Clarksville, Tennessee. Sister Augusta came with him and we all had a wonderful time. They really liked the egg rolls at Yen Ching’s.

Pastor attended the Bible Conference in Granite Bay, California in March where Elder Mike Prater is Pastor. My message on “The Glory of God” was well received and I was also privileged to preach in the Sunday evening service for Cordova Missionary Baptist Church where Elder Fred Roberts is the Pastor. My message there was on “Bricks in the Wall.” I submitted this message in article form to the “Voice in the Wilderness” paper published by Elder Mark Minney in West Virginia. I submitted another article entitled “Arminian Verses?” to the Berea Baptist Banner published in Mantachie, Mississippi.

We created a new page on our church website called “Click and Listen.” It has several old audio sermons on it by brethren that have gone on to glory before us. You might like to listen to some good old time preaching. Pray also for our Radio program on KLAY 1180AM radio. It is called “The Beacon of Truth” and airs each Lords Day morning from 8:45 to 9AM.

Pastor’s back and leg (sciatic nerve) pain is gone. Thank you for your prayers. Plans for the Mission trip to Ukraine with Elder Kenneth Long have been delayed until later in the spring due to medical problems with brother Alex and his family in Chernigov. Alex needs to acquire vacation now in order to host guests from America. We will let you know more as things begin to happen. A couple of Grace Brethren guys have tried to interfere but it is no problem. The local Baptist Union organization in Chernigov is also hindering somewhat. Alex and our people had to stop holding services in the auditorium they were using due to politics. Pray that God will give them an even better place for worship.

Our church attendance here needs improvement. I posted an ad in a weekly paper for a FREE Bible Study for the Military. I hope to reach some of the personnel on Ft. Lewis and McCord AFB with this study on Basic Bible Truth. As the weather turns nicer and my sciatica is gone now, I will be out in the neighborhood again passing out gospel tracks. As I tell our members, “If we want God’s blessing on our outreach, we must outreach.”

Our Missionaries are always thankful for your prayers. Brother Bob, our Missionary in Ireland is finishing his chemotherapy for a lymphatic lesion on the optic nerve of his right eye. Brother Baldemor, our Missionary in Philippines is well. The financial needs in the Filipino work are the Lawa-an building project and brother Baldemor’s travel expenses. Sister Sue Kaley needs prayer regarding inoperable cancer. Her son is in prison. I visited him and am sending Bible Studies to him and his wife. Sister Turner might have Parkinson’s. Remember our older members in prayer and those in distant places. Thanks again for your faithful prayers. AMEN.
