"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful."
We are so very thankful for those who support us in prayer and those who also support us financially. There is no way we could remain in this ministry without the prayer support and giving of God's people. A hearty thanks to all!
We began the month of September parked at the church I pastored for 18 1/2 years in Port Washington, Ohio. Countryside Baptist is the result of the combining of the church we started in 1985 (Kings Way Baptist) and the Hillview Baptist Church in 1987.
We had a full slate of services during our 2 week stay beginning with Victory Baptist of Coshocton, Ohio. What a joy to visit with Pastor Ralph Johnson in their beautiful facilities there in Coshocton. I also had the privilege of preaching a Sunday evening service at Countryside Baptist for Pastor Patrick Boyle. What a joy to see the house full for an evening service!
Sunday the 11th we traveled to Steubenville, Ohio for the day with Truth Baptist and Pastor Tim Block. Brother Block has 10 children which were a blessing to be around! Pastor Block's Dad, Bill, started Truth Baptist and turned it over to his son because of health reasons. He is one of my heroes in the ministry! Faithful in a difficult community that is heavy in Jesuit Catholicism, he has kept the faith all of these years. Please remember Pastor Bill Block in your prayers.
Two midweek services rounded out our time there with Wintersville Baptist Temple and Pastor Thacker, then Steel Valley Baptist and Pastor Todd Miller. We traveled "home" to Cincinnati then to Alexandria, Kentucky to hold revival services for Pastor Jeff Long of the Berean Baptist Church. We had a great time in the Lord there!
We closed out the month with an evening service with Pastor Vincent Powell at the Victory Baptist Church of Covington, Kentucky and traveled to Milton, Florida for our home church's Missions Conference which began on the 28th.
We have been busy and richly blessed !
