Maureen and I stopped at Mt Vernon Illinois for lunch. I decided to see if I could find Pastor Brian Carpenter of Old Paths Baptist Church in Mt Vernon. We have their website up for them. We did find them and spent a short time fellowshipping with them. Maureen and I were very blessed. They have a challenging ministry and need our prayers!We arrived in Paris Illinois several hours ago. I have the message all ready for the morning service. Maureen and I are looking forward to this – please pray for the service at Independent Bible Baptist Church ( in addition to the evening service at Calvary Baptist Church in Bellville).
