Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
The Latest News:
- We have reached almost 6 1/2 million people with online Bible tracts since we started advertising the online God’s Bridge to Eternal Life tract!
Church Website Ministry:
- I was contacted by Pastor Brian Magaw of Temple Baptist Church in Sumter South Carolina about a “rescued” domain (tbaptist.org) We “rescued” tbaptist.org back in 2016 and have had a generic website up for them. Pastor Magaw wanted to know what he had to do to “take control” of their domain. After explaining to Pastor Brian all that we do (hosted on professional servers, added security, on and offsite backups, managed WordPress hosting etc.) he decided to keep the domain on our hosting. I set up WordPress for Temple Baptist Church, and set up a basic website. I worked with Pastor Brian to choose a template and plugins that he and his wife liked. We tweaked the website and I spent time training Pastor Magaw on how to work on WordPress. Temple Baptist Church in Sumter South Carolina now has a working WordPress website under their control. Check them out at https://tbaptist.org.

- Please be in prayer – the Lord has laid on my heart a backup power generator. We are operating an FTP server from the house. When the power goes out I cannot do the ministry work. During the freeze we just went through we were without power for 18 hours, and lost more time dealing with the problems caused by the low temperatures with no heat. There is a lot of talk about how bad the Texas power grid is, and the possible outages coming. I am praying about, this not fully convinced we need to do this, but the Lord has given me a burden. The Lord will have to provide the money for this. Please pray for the Lord’s will regarding this. The cost appears to be about $7500.
