March 19 , 2017 - Walking where Jesus walked

We were truly blessed to visit the land of the Bible with our dear friend Calvin Durham and his group. Lynda had never been to the Holy Land and it was a special experience for her. It was such a privilege to baptize my wife in the Jordan River. We plan to return to Israel next year and would love for you to go with us.

February 28, 2017 - Back in LA

Nope, we were not in Los Angeles, we were in Lower Alabama. We drove to Pensacola where we stayed a couple days and preached at Family Revival Center in Foley AL. We love Pastors Tommy and Samantha Howard and the good folks in Foley.

February 9 , 2017 - Living Waters Assembly

We had a great revival this week at Living Waters Assembly of God in Magnolia, TX. It was good to sleep in our own bed every night. Pastors Michael and Joan Colston were such great hosts. We had an excellent time. Thank God, several people got right with the Lord and even more received the precious baptism in the Holy Ghost. Of course, all the glory goes to our amazing God.

February 1, 2017 - Faith Christian Center

On Sunday, we preached at Faith Christian Center in Silsbee, Texas. What a great time! This is one of the few churches across America that has maintained a real spirit of revival for decades. My hat goes off to Pastor Chris Kirkendall and this wonderful congregation.

January 20, 2017 - Beautiful

While we were in Africa, Lynda became a grandmother again. Her Ryan and Rachel had a beautiful baby girl, Anna. She looks like her grandmother.

January 19, 2017 - Wow!

What better word could describe our 2017 Harvest Revival in Gesuba Ethiopia. It was amazing. On Sunday, we gathered between 45,000 and 50,000 on the field. There were incredible miracles--blind saw, deaf heard, dumb spoke, tumors disappeared. To God be all the glory! At the final tally, we had 7,800 registered conversions. What an incredible week.

I am so grateful for David Dillon and Dylan Peck who joined our team. We are always so thankful for Per Akvist and the Joshua Campaign team in Ethiopia. And, of course, there was my precious Lynda. She was such a trouper. The people loved her.

January 6, 2017 - Acts 6:4

I was honored beyond measure to begin my ministry this year at the Acts 6:4 Conference in Texarkana,

TX. What a line up of great speakers! What powerful Pentecostal worship! I felt so humbled, yet God showed up and used me. Of course, it goes without saying, He receives all the glory. Thank you hosts, Andy Harris and Jason Stedham for the invitation to be part of this great event.

January 1, 2017 - What a Way to Start the Year!

Lynda and I wanted to find a watch night service, so we could start the New Year right--in a church praying. We ended up going to Faith Assembly of God in Pasadena. We were joined by my forever friend James Dodd. What a blessing! We were able to connect with John McDuff, one of the great Pentecostal evangelists of my youth.

This morning we drove to Baytown to be in service with Dale and Jean Gentry. Lynda, Dale and I were all raised in Comanche OK. When Dale pastored in Holiday TX he was the first pastor to invite me to preach outside my home church. National CA Day 1968--I will never forget. Dale and Jean stood with me in my tough years and have always been an encouragement to me.

Dale gave a positive word and I can't imagine a better start for our first new year. 2017 is going to be a year of great breakthroughs!
