As we are moving into the final stages of 2015, I wanted to give you an update on our activities over the previous quarter. We are continually grateful to be able to labor for the churches and families the Lord has connected us with.
Last week was a milestone of sorts… I completed 39 one hour survey messages for each book of the Old Testament. After starting this project in the spring… I finished Malachi, the last book of the Old Testament…
I was so thankful for the opportunity the Lord gave me to do this. My plan is to make a “Through the Bible Survey’’ package for families to use before they read a particular book of the Bible, and spend time over the next few years encouraging families to read through the Bible over and over. You can hear the messages on sermon audio.
On a personal/family level, we are delighted to say that it looks like we are going to have two more grandchildren, as David’s wife Monica and Taylor’s wife Blair are pregnant. So now, I’m saying that we have sixteen grandchildren.
Here is a report of some of our activities during the second and third quarters of 2015. It has been a very busy season with lots of travel, and we are now looking forward to our national conference in Asheville, NC next week – The Highway of Holiness. We are putting the final touches on the preparations now… Our staff is very thankful that the Lord has allowed us to spend our labors on such a conference…
At the conference we will be presenting some new products such as, Early Piety, Life Skills, and Not of This World.
Highlights of our activities since the summer were our Church Discipline Conference in July. You can get the audio and video by clicking here.
We also conducted Regional Leaders Meetings in Tennessee, Colorado and Texas.
We took our interns to the Colorado Father Son Retreat and then to the Forge Conference in Texas on the topic, “Love One Another.”
In August, I was able to be “present” in New Zealand via video for a family life/homeschooling conference there.
At the end of September, I took the interns to Mt. Vernon to give them a feel for what they could learn from the life of George Washington.
During the first week of October, I spoke at the Hope Baptist Father Son Retreat. My messages were on, the “Stewardship of the eyes” and “The Stewardship of Your Family.”
Also, we have selected our National Conference focus for 2016 – “The Fear of God.” The following speakers have accepted our invitation to speak at the conference, Joel Beeke, Ken Ham, John Snyder, Jeff Pollard, Sam Waldron, Carlton McLeod, Dennis Gundersen, Craig Houston, and Jason Dohm.
