1. Today, I became acquainted with the ministry of Baptist Youth Mission (BYM), headquartered in Sinclair, WY.
2. I enjoyed seeing again the new video release of MTT Ministries in England, Ireland, and Scotland. The organ in the historic John Knox church is incredible.
3. Good reports on Fellowship Baptist Church in Meridian, Idaho. Jeff and Chris are good brothers. This new church plant is no longer under missionary status.
4. Elmo Parish has put together a Scripture saturated, Christ-centered nine study lesson series, “The Person and Ministry of Jesus Christ.” I picked it up. The front cover highlights some quotes by Harold Lindsell and Charles J. Woodbridge.
“The human predicament finds its solution in Christ.”
“The Person, ministry, and passion, and continued existence of Jesus Christ are central to Christianity. While we believe and accept all that Jesus taught, the essence of our faith is our personal relationship to Him as the Son of God and Savior of our souls.”
“To rescue man from everlasting death He laid aside His garments of transcendent light, entered this world of woe as the immortal Son of God, ‘took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him . . . ‘ ” (Phil. 2:7-9).
5. Also, I really need to gather a group of guys and head for the mountains for an Idahoan backpacking trip with Monte Leavell.
