September! August 31, 2020


I have had a verse on my mind the last few days. Proverbs 21:31 says, “The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.” We plan and prepare. We do our part, but only God can protect us and cause us to be victorious. Our lives and labors are in His hands.

These are unusual days to travel and minister but I give God the praise for His constant care and keeping. He has been so very good to us. Last week Tammy and I dropped off both of our girls (!) at Crown College. We are very grateful for them and thankful that they have a place like Crown College to attend. God willing, Grant will start 10th grade this week. These are special days.

We are excited about the meetings in the coming month and ask you to pray with us for God’s touch in each place…

Finally, I want to invite you to join us for the Southwide Baptist Fellowship at Gospel Light Baptist Church in Walkertown, NC, Monday-Wednesday, October 10-12. This important meeting, just days before our national election, will concentrate on prayer. There could not be a more important emphasis for God’s people. Register online at

The ruins of the Castle of the Servant in Jordan. The historian Josephus wrote that the dynasty of Tobiah built a castle on the east side of the Jordan River, in Ammon. He specifically wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews about the carved "beasts of gigantic size" visible here on the left corner of the structure. The beasts on the right side are not as well-preserved. The structure dates to the centuries after Nehemiah, however it shows the power and prestige of this family of "servants."

The Mountain of the House, also known as the Temple Mount, with the Mount of Olives in the background.
Some of the steps in the foreground date from the Second Temple period, and would have been the steps Jesus ascended. Archeologists have uncovered around 300 baptismal pools along the steps leading up to the Temple. They would be convenient for baptizing 3,000 people!
The Hebrew word ruakh can mean either spirit, wind, or breath. The Breath of God, the Spirit of God, and the Wind of God are all understood to be cognates.
