Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
The Latest News:
- Maureen and I had a great time participating in the “Great Commission” Missions campmeeting at New Beginning Baptist Church on September 11-14 2022 in Edgewood Texas. We have been hosting their website (nbbcedgewood.com) since 2009! Pastor Bryan Easley invited us to set up our display and participate in this year’s conference. There was great preaching there, and we met two missionaries that said they were going to call us and get a website set up. I also had time to sit down with Mrs. Staci Easley and show her how to navigate and update their website (the member that was doing this for them left several years ago).
Church Website Ministry:
- At this year’s East Texas Baptist Campmeeting, I met Pastor Eddie Hibdon. He came up and introduced himself, and said he had just taken Shady Grove Baptist Church in Emory Texas and would like to have a website set up. He called me after the campmeeting, and we talked. He provided me with some content, and we registered a domain (Shady Grove Baptist Church in Emory Texas). I built Pastor Hibdon a WordPress website. He asked if I could update it for him, and I agreed. Pastor Hibdon invited us to present the ministry on Sunday August 14, 2022 at Shady Grove Baptist Church in the evening service. We accepted and were blessed by the Pastor and the church!
