Letters to Supporters – January 2014

Dear Brother Lousley:

It would take 65 days after leaving the port at Plymouth, England, for William Bradford and a small group of passengers on the Mayflower Ship to see the land of the new world for the first time. After all those days of stormy seas, their voyage was a notorious success. It was a beautiful late fall morning, Thursday, November 9, 1620. The Mayflower’s passengers were joyful as they saw a goodly land and wooded to the brink of the sea. After much decision making, they settled after searching and making landfall at Plymouth Rock. This would be the future site of Plymouth Plantation. This would be the New England. Roger Williams later would create a haven for Baptists composed of the early colonies. The reason for leaving the motherland to sacrifice so much was for religious freedom from the tyranny and oppression of state-run religion in England during those days.

God provided a new world, a new land, and a new era in a time of oppression for the...

September/October 2013

Dear Friends and Supporters:

One of the greatest privileges in the past 38 years in evangelism is being a part of someone else’s ministry during a revival meeting that you know and love so well.  For 20 years, Dr. Preston Judd and his wife, Kathy, and their three daughters served here at Mt. Salem Revival Grounds.  Many of those years he was the pastor of our church, Mt. Salem Baptist Church.  Now he pastor’s the New Life Baptist Church of Walker, MI.  He has a wonderful church family and a beautiful church auditorium and buildings.  I was invited to preach a five day meeting on stewardship and missions.  I enjoyed the time and fellowship we had together and appreciated the hunger that Pastor Judd’s people have for the Lord.  Dr. Judd has always had a big heart and a giving heart and he would do almost anything for anybody.  God blessed in a wonderful way and we had a great meeting with God’s people.  When the meeting was over, Pastor Judd told me that he and...

God Save America

September 20, 2013

Dear Friends:

The first God Save America Rally was held in Mesquite, TX, in 1976, our nation’s Bicentennial year.  Since then, the National God Save America Revival Conferences have gone on to be an important, powerful, and unique old-fashioned Baptist conference. Throughout its existence, this conference has become a moral compass for the eternal good of our country. The conference has tackled tough issues, but not without critics or opponents.  Great conferences are honorable and rare, and the effects of the God Save America Conferences are reaching nation-wide throughout Fundamental, Independent, Baptists.

The longer I live and the deeper I delve into the need of revival for our nation, the more I realize the need for this great National Conference.  Today the threat of our churches drifting into liberalism, and the fearful thought of America drifting toward Socialism, could very well extinguish individual revival and liberty. I, for...

Minute-A-Month Update

July-August 2013

Dear Friends and Supporters:

YOUTH CONFERENCE – It is always a “Big” week at Mt. Salem with all the 4th of July decorations, which adds to the excitement! This year we had a great turnout of churches. The week was filled with fun-packed organized games and free times for swimming, zipline, paintball, rifle range, horseshoes, and the game room. During the morning and evening preaching services many teens made life-changing decisions for Christ. On Tuesday, July 2nd, we held our outdoor Patriotic Program with live gospel music, a Patriotic Presentation on the multimedia screen, concessions and grillers, and a Fireworks Show at dark. We also had the honor of meeting Hershel Williams, the last living Medal of Honor recipient of WW II. Not only did we have a great crowd that night with those attending the Youth Conference, but many people from the surrounding towns came out and enjoyed the outdoor program with us.

Letter to Supporters – July/August

July 31, 2013

Dear Friends and Supporters:

During the Mt. Salem Revival Grounds’ summer season, I stayed close to home, traveling only on the weekends so I could be at the camp for the summer events.  My evangelism travels have taken me to one church in Pennsylvania, four churches in West Virginia, one church in Maryland, and two churches in Ohio.  I thank the Lord for all the salvations, baptisms, church memberships, and many other decisions that were made among Christians during these Sundays on the road.

I want to invite you to this year’s National God Save America Revival Conference November 11-13, 2013.  It will be held in Lexington, KY, at Clays Mill Road Baptist Church.  Dr. Jeff Fugate and I will be co-hosting the conference.  What a beautiful, scenic place to come and attend the conference.  Lexington is known as the “Thoroughbred City” and the “Horse Capitol of the World”.  It is located in the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass Region. ...

Letter to Supporters Mar/Apr 2013

February/March, 2013

Dear Friends and Supporters:

Matthew 27 and 28 reveals many facts about the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.  “… the Son of Man was betrayed … wearing a crown of thorns…they smote Jesus on the head…then they spit upon Him…chief priests accused Him of many things…but they cried out, away with Him…they parted His garments, casting lots upon them…a spear pierced His side…they that passed by reviled Jesus…and they crucified Jesus…Joseph wrapped Him in a clean linen cloth…and laid Him in His own new tomb…Joseph rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre…the angel said…He is not here He has risen…Jesus spake…all power is given unto Me in Heaven and in earth.”

Then Jesus gave the Great Commission to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all nations.  Thank God we do not serve a dead god, but a risen Saviour and Lord.  I love Easter because it’s where we get to take Jesus...
