Evergreen Bible Church

Monday, September 28th, 2009


On September 20 through the 24, we held revival meetings at Evergreen Bible Church in Evergreen, Colorado.  This church plant is snuggled in the beautiful mountains west of Denver, Colorado.  The sounds of the wilderness were very evident during this week of meetings.  All week long we have heard elk bugling near our trailer and around the church.

Chewelah Baptist Church

On Friday, September 11, we left from Portland, Oregon, so that we could travel back to Washington State for a youth work day in Chewelah, Washington.  The youth moved water lines and fire wood for a lady in the community.  I shared a Bible study on eternal security and how you can defend what the Bible teaches about eternal life.  On Sunday, I spoke for each of the morning services and presented our ministry on Sunday night. 

Pastor Dan Cleghorn and I attended Faith Baptist Bible College together; when I was a freshman, he was a sophomore.  It is a great encouragement to hear of his faithfulness to the Lord and to the foundations of God’s Word.

Because we had a week open for travel to Portland Oregon from Montana, we were able to spend two days in Glacier National Park.  As a family we hiked from Logan Pass to the Loop, a 12 mile high mountain trail.  It was a long, but very beautiful walk through God’s creation.  On Thursday, we left Whitefish, Montana and drove the 620 miles to Portland, Oregon.
