Merry Christmas


Happy New Year 2018

Mary and I want to send year-end greetings to all that have continued to keep us in your prayers for another year. Can you believe 2017 is almost history? I honestly do not know where the time has gone. What a joy it is to come to the end of another year having been able to serve the Lord. The year was packed with missions conferences, concerts, a few youth conferences, and, of course, another summer (#25) at Silver State Baptist Youth Camp. February 13th my Mom went home to glory and she is greatly missed. Her legacy continues though a tribute CD of her singing that is raising quite a bit of money to be used for special Missions needs and other projects she would have loved to have helped. The busy fall brought us to Arkansas, where I received a full knee replacement. This was a time of having to take almost 5 weeks off to do what the doctor said and just recuperate. I did make one trip to sing in Russellville, AR, and it about wore me out. The folks there were so gracious, though, and we had a wonderful Thanksgiving service.

Just to recap the last 2 months, we spent from October 29 – December 1st at home in Cherokee Village, AR. On November 1st I went in for a total knee replacement. I have tried to do my physical therapy religiously, and it seems to have paid off. I am feeling better, and the knee is getting stronger each day. I have been able to start riding again, but that, too, is a slow going process.

We want to praise the Lord for being able to get back on the road for our first meeting the first week of December. We were at Heritage Baptist for a revival. Evangelist Kent York was preaching. What a meeting we had. The altars were full each night, and we saw 5 come to know Christ the last night of the meeting. After that meeting, we headed out for Tucson, Arizona, so we could get our rig parked there. We had a chance to be with Bro. Kent one more time before flying back to Arkansas. We praise the Lord for the lives we have seen changed and the many decisions made throughout the year. God IS Good!

We begin the New Year in Texas, where I will then fly back to Tucson to begin a series of missions conferences. Mary will be heading back to Arkansas for the birth of grandbaby #8. Pray for her as she is there and for me having to be by myself. I do not like being without my helpmeet! She is my best friend and has been a wonderful nurse.
