I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
If you have followed our prayer letters over the years, you will notice the verse above, Psalm 104:33. This truly describes why we do what we do. Music is a passion! It has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. Being able to take this passion and direct and focus it on sharing the Gospel message is a joy I can’t explain. For over 41 years we have been blessed to embrace this passion while traveling all across America and the world to sing of God’s grace, mercy, love, heaven, the blessings He gives here, and the Lord’s soon return. Mary and I praise the Lord for the altar results and decisions made the last two months.
Since March, the Lord has kept us safe as we have traveled many miles from California through Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arkansas. We’ll be leaving this Tuesday to head for Silver State Baptist Youth Camp. This will be our 30th year to minister at SSBYC along with Bro. Jimmy Carter. This year will be Jimmy’s last year as camp director, but he will still be hanging around to be the “go to guy” when something can’t be figured out. After 30 years, he knows every nook and cranny there at camp. Please pray we see many souls saved and lives dedicated to His service through the summer.
It has been a blessing to begin singing the songs off the new project “Grace Ain’t Fair.” The way folks are responding to the songs is a verification of how the Lord directed when choosing the songs that would be included on the album. I received a very kind note a few years back from the writer of the song, “The Longer I Serve Him the Sweeter He Grows.” I had heard the song since the early 70s but had never sung it. I couldn’t get that thought out of my mind. I realize how blessed I am and how our walk with Him surely has grown “sweeter” through the years. Where we would be if “Grace Was Fair”? We would be totally lost with no hope of redemption. I thank the Lord His grace is freely given, and since March 11, 1965, I have been saved and kept by His grace.
Please keep Mary and I in your prayers. Pray we will be used at camp. Pray we will see souls saved and lives changed. Pray for our travels, as we like everyone, will be paying much more for our fuel. Diesel just seems to keep going up. I know it is all in God’s hands.
