Hello Partners:

Greetings in the name above all names “Jesus”! The works in India are doing well. We presently have several buildings and churches being built. We have poured the roof on the second story of the Ain’t God Good Bible College and are framing walls. At Lee’s Chapel Baptist Bible College we have poured the roof and the slab for a large building to house our staff and their families. We have 3 churches in construction at different stages.

Pastor Timothy’s church is close to completion with the need to wire and paint still pending. The other two churches are in different stages with one just setting the cornerstone and the other with the pillars and roof poured. It’s a blessing to see these works doing well! We do lack some funds for a couple of these projects. If you would like to send an offering to help in finishing these churches, it would sure be a blessing! Just mark your check “church projects”.

We will be headed to India at the end of this month. We usually leave earlier, but this year I have an opportunity to work in aministry with Bro. Chad Sellers. He has taken on the task of revamping the Good Shepherds Ministry. This is something that we will use in India and other countries as the Lord opens doors. It will involve Pastor training and Missionary training. When we arrive in India, we will conduct Pastor Conferences at AGGBBC and LCBBC. I will teach daily in the colleges and preach in chapel and village churches as the Lord opens doors! We will be in India until sometime in April.

Please pray for our safe arrival to India. Last year we encountered some problems. We are trusting our God to give us a fruitful trip this time! Denise will conduct some ladies’ meetings and do special things with the children. Our aim, as always, is to train champions to reach India with the gospel of Jesus Christ!

When we return in April, we would like to present our work in some new churches as the Lord opens doors. I can preach and give a presentation about our work. If you are a new or supporting church and would like for us to come and give an update,
simply give me a call or text me at 205.307.9774 or email [email protected].

I do want to thank God for supplying the things we have been praying for! He has met all our needs and even above what we had prayed for! January 9, 2009, we stepped out by faith and left pastoring to begin the work in India. We had no idea, what God would do. The last 14 years have been a wonderful journey. We look forward with anticipation to see what great things God will do in the future! We could not do what we do without the help of the faithful supporters God has let us come in contact with.

The Lord has been good to us, and I do want to praise Him for His faithfulness.

We are praising our good Lord for the many things He is doing here in India! We have been here for 2 months and have been very busy. We have preached in many churches and have had opportunity to preach in several different kinds of services. I preached at an outdoor prayer meeting one night and just a few days later we were back at the same home preaching the funeral of two of the people that had been in attendance. A man there had been sick and passed into a coma during the week and on Tuesday morning he took a turn for the worse but before he passed away his good wife suddenly died! Within 3 hours both husband and wife went to heaven! Ain’t God Good! Imagine his surprise when he opened his eyes in heaven and his wife was already there!

We have seen God save several souls while here! My World Missions class is going well. Denise has been teaching the girl students on Wednesday afternoons.  She and Kezia had a ladies meeting last week here with around 40 ladies present. Our Pastors Conference had 97 Pastors, with a high attendance of 143.

We have purchased new playground equipment for the children with the help of a Christian School in Florida. We have 28 children living in our new home. We have 54 students here on campus at LCBBC. With the staff, students and children we have around 100 people on campus! One BIG HAPPY FAMILY!

We will be going to Nagaland the day after Easter for two weeks for our graduation exercise there. We have 9 students there.This new work is going well with our wonderful staff doing a great job.

We are in the process of building two churches and a prayer shed. We hope to have dedications the week of Easter. We are praying for $4,500 to purchase a piece of property to build another church. We have the money for the building but need the money to purchase the land. I preached in a small house church there last week and there was a Hindu lady that received Christ. These people really need a church.

When we return from India in late April we are praying that God will open doors for us to present our work in some new churches. We have a few Mission Conferences, Revivals and Camp Meetings booked  but as of right now our calendar has many openings. If the Lord lays us on your heart about helping in any kind of meeting during the next year please contact us at 205-307-9774.

We are asking God for direction to expand the ministry in India! There are such great needs, and many areas have no Gospel witness. We want to be obedient to our call to reach the great country of India with the Gospel. Please pray for us that we would be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. We do not want to just sit on our past labors! There is much work to be done! Please pray for direction and the wisdom to implement what God would have us do.

Thank you for your prayer and financial support! We are blessed to have partners like you!
