Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
The Latest News:
- Bob has been preaching at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church in Dallas Texas. He will be preaching again on 12/4/22. Please keep him in prayer.
- We presented the ministry and preached at Live Oak Baptist Church in Cove Arkansas. See story below.
Church Website Ministry:
- We met Pastor Brian McWhorter at the Great Commission Camp Meeting at New Beginning Baptist Church in Edgewood Texas back in September 2022. In early October, we went and visited Wildwood Baptist Church in Mabank Texas, where Brother Brian is Pastor. We went out to lunch, and discussed putting their old website (wildwoodbaptistmabank.com) back online. Their domain had expired. I was able to re-register their domain, and using content provided, was able to build a website for Pastor McWhorter using WordPress.
I have had a relationship with Pastor Paul Pullen of Live Oak Baptist Church in Cove Arkansas for many years now. Pastor Pullen has been the Pastor at Live Oak Baptist Church since April. Brother Paul called me up and asked if I would like to preach and present the ministry at Live Oak Baptist Church. I accepted the offer. Maureen and I traveled up to Cove Arkansas, and spent the night in their prophet’s chamber. Sunday morning, November 13, 2022, I preached the morning service, followed by a fellowship meal, and then presented our ministry. While we were up there, Pastor Paul and I talked about putting a website back up for Live Oak Baptist Church. Brother Pullen decided on a domain name (liveoakofcove.com) and I set up a website for the church using WordPress. Pastor Pullen will be updating the website going forward.
- I was contacted by Pastor Meshack Wafula about setting up a website for Galilee Independent Baptist Church in Kitale, Kenya. Brother Meshack, and I had to correspond via email, since Long Distance phone service was cost prohibitive. Pastor Meshack planted the local rural church in 2009. He is pastor/evangelist and a teacher in their local servant leadership school. Brother Wafula decided on the domain galileeibc.com. I registered the domain. Pastor Wafula provided content for the website, and I built a WordPress website for Galilee Independent Baptist Church using his content. I will update the website as more content becomes available.

- A prisoner in AR writes: Dear Mama Maureen and Papa Bob, Greeting, salutations and lots of love and joy from me to you thanks to the great blessings and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ and all that he allows to happen. I wanted to answer your questions (I asked if he was able to receive the Bible crossword puzzles etc. that I include with his lessons). Before I do I need to reiterate what an AWESOME, COOL, WONDERFUL BLESSING you are and have been in my life. I truly, truly, truly think I may have done some bad things or maybe even given up completely if not for you coming into my life when you did. GOD WAS DEFINETLY AT WORK. You made me feel worthy and lovable during a time when I was feeling abandoned and unworthy. I will never say enough how much LOVE and GRATITUDE I have in my heart for you. You are my family and mentors and blessing from God, all the good things and positive people in my life have come thru or somehow because of you. WOW. I love you. Thank you again. Send my love to all. Until next time just know I’m doing good. In Jesus name…
