Hello to all,

Tuesday March 6 we left Florence, AL beginning our third year traveling and holding meetings and working with small congregations primarily in the Pacific Northwest. This has been a very rewarding work that saw two baptized into Christ the first year and two restored the second year. Dottie and I are deeply grateful to all the individuals and churches that have helped with our support in order that we can do this work. This enables us to work with churches that otherwise could not afford to have a gospel meeting or some of them to even have a preacher preach for them on the Lord's Day. I still have not raised all the support I believe I will need for this year, but I think I am close enough with what I anticipate will be coming shortly, that we should be able to do all the work that is planned.

Since December of 2011 I have been preaching on Sunday morning for the church in Somerville, AL and this past Sunday, (March 4th) was my last Sunday to preach there. They are trying to locate a preacher to work with them on a full-time basis. In the meantime, they have some other men in the area who will preach for them on a "fill-in" basis, some older retired preachers and some who work a secular job and do "fill-in" preaching.

At present we are in Trenton, TN (where I preached for almost eight years) visiting with friends and attended Wednesday evening Bible study. We visited the school where Dottie worked and she was able to visit with a number of her former co-workers. We are taking some vacation time before my first meeting in Wellsburg, WV and plan to tour some of the Eastern States we have not seen. We will be visiting with friends this weekend at Paris Landing State Park northeast of Paris, TN. and will be with the Kentucky Lake Rd church this coming Sunday (March 11). We will be with the church in New Haven, VT March 18 and then in Tyngsboro, MA March 25. We have some very dear friends who drive about an hour and a half one way from a city in NH to worship with this faithful group. They are not aware of a faithful church in the state of New Hampshire. From there we will travel to Wellsburg, WV to begin our gospel meeting work April 1. Next will be Charleston, WV; Minooka, IL; Princeton, IL; Ranchester, WY and Sheridan, WY. I am working on the possibility of doing some work with a small liberal church in Scotts Bluff, NE. The daughter and son-in-law of a family in Ranchester, WY attend there along with another daughter, because there is no faithful church in driving distance. So, they are hoping something can be worked out for us to be able to do some teaching there. From there we will go back to Belgreen, AL for a week and then head back to the Northwest for more meetings. The dates and places for some of these have not been set definitely as of yet, so I will have more to say about these in future reports.

I appreciate all who read these "blogs". Many have told us that they are praying for us and give us words of encouragement for which we are deeply grateful and we solicit your continued prayers on our behalf.

So long for now and more will be posted as we make our way to the various appointments we have.

 

Jerry
