C.O.M.E. Conference


From May 16 – 20, 2009, the conference for our mission board COME was held in Pella, Iowa at Berean Baptist Church.  Please pray for George Zinn who was not able to attend the conference because of an irregular heart beat and pneumonia.  Many of the COME evangelists preached and all gave annual reports.  I was able to preach Sunday night and lead the singing for Tuesday night. 

Jane was able to minister through playing the piano on Monday and Tuesday morning and sing on Monday night.  Caleb and Jane sang a duet on Tuesday night.  In the middle of “Until Then,” Caleb’s voice dropped an octave, but he stayed on key and kept on singing.  Yes, Caleb is growing up.


During the morning, we meet each morning to pray and discuss the issues that we all face in the ministry.  The church took good care of our children during this time.  They went boating, biking, and hiking.  They also went to the Science Center in Des Moines.  This conference was well attended and very encouraging to us all.

Caleb is spending the summer with his grandparents Pastor John and Jean Baughman in Kentucky.  They picked him up on Wednesday.  He is already having a great time planting squash and feeding the rabbits and helping Grandma with cooking.
