Decemberrrrrrr had an unusually cold spell. We had a couple of weeks of sub-zero temperatures and several days of that were in the ten-below range with wind chills of -30. January has been much more mild and now we are entering February, looking forward to spring.


        I’m finally getting some more opportunities to minister in a variety of ways:


        This morning was my first of three or four appearances on “Unconfused”, a radio talk show hosted by Pastor Stephen Miller in Lubbock, Texas on KRFE (AM580). I will do that Monday mornings when I’m available until I start working Mondays (probably March).


        I will be at Liberty Baptist Church in Rochester, IN (Pastor Bill McSpadden) April 13, 14, 15 (F-S-S) for five sessions ( Those of you from nearby churches are invited to attend the Friday and Saturday sessions.

We’re working on scheduling something at Bible Baptist Church in Asheville, NC (Pastor Andrew Sluder). It will probably have to be in the fall when I start getting three-day weekends again. It’s a 14 hour drive, so the extra day is imperative. I can take some days off work for meetings (I am for the Indiana meetings), but I don’t want to burn then faster than necessary.


        Pastor Brenenstuhl, my pastor here at Wyldewood Baptist Church in Oshkosh, WI asked me to do a six-week, for-credit, summer session for our Wyldewood Baptist Bible Institute, complete with Powerpoint. I already have two of the six ready to go. I also teach our King’s Kids Wednesday evening youth ministry about once a month. They get to see fossils and artifacts, I bring but they’ve never been able to see my Powerpoint lessons.

Sometime within the next two months I’ll be at Bible Baptist Church, Winneconne WI, Pastor Robert Hatch.

Last month I did an Awana session (two actually) at nearby Plymouth Congregational. Director Jim Engler says I am the most requested special speaker during the year.

NOW is the time to schedule a weekend meeting for your church. Call 920-376-0828 or respond to this email. Places more than about 8 hours away may have to wait until fall so we can take advantage of the extra day. For those of you interested in having me for a meeting, I have created a page on my website that tells what I have, what I might need, and some pointers and basic information. Check it out at:
