The Latest News:

  • Another of our hosting providers is hitting us with a price increase. Have to finish migration off that website by June 15.

Church Website Ministry:

  • I noticed the website of one of our longtime supporting churches (Grace Baptist Church in Portland, Texas) was down. Maureen and I went down there and presented the ministry back in 2018. We contacted the church to inquire about the website and to express our gratitude for their past support. We also provided an update on the progress of our ministry since our visit in 2018.The gentleman who was maintaining the website has serious health problems, and the paid hosting was a financial burden on him, so he let the hosting service go down. We talked, and the service he was on owned the domains, so we decided to register a new domain to bring a website back up at  I was able to get most of the content from some archived copies of the website. After registering the new domain, I quickly migrated the content and made some updates to the website on WordPress. I also ensured that the hosting service was reliable and had a good uptime record to prevent any future downtime.
  • I have been Facebook friends with evangelist/pastor Bruce Haller for several years now. Brother Haller posted on Facebook that he (in his 70’s!) was going to be planting a church in his home town of Sandersville Georgia. He has had 49 years of Salvation, Scripture study, and Spiritual ministry, as an Independent Fundamental Baptist KJBO Scripture preacher/teacher/counselor. I sent off a message to Brother Bruce asking if he was interested in getting a website going for the new church plant, H.O.P.E. Baptist Church. “The H.O.P.E. Baptist Church is focused on Helping Other People Experience JESUS through a Personal faith relationship, Prayer, Phone or Personal Scripture Counsel, and Contextual Interpretation and Application of Scripture Preaching/Teaching in reinforcing and restoring others by the power of God, through the Spirit, by faith, for the glory of God…” The ministry is under the banner of Grace Baptist Church, Ocean Springs, MS. He responded that he was indeed interested, and we were able to touch base and talk about getting a website going. Pastor Haller decided on the domain name I registered the domain and installed WordPress for brother Haller. He provided some information to put up on the website, and we have it up and running. We will be updating the website as we go along.
