Northern Lights Baptist Church ~ Anchorage, Alaska

I was home 4 days from the Philippines and my sweet wife washed my clothes and got me packed and ready to walk back out the door. I couldn't do all the traveling I do without her!

 I then flew to Anchorage, Alaska with Pastor Greg Clark and the Northern Lights Baptist Church.  Boy! Talk about a climate change from real hot to cold and some snow. 

I preached their Missions Conference and taught one day in their Bible Institute.  Praise the Lord!  We had over 40 different nationalities in the service on Sunday with people saved and baptized. The missionaries at the conference did a great job of presenting their fields of service.   This is a very exciting church to preach in with many great people!

Above is a picture of one of the young men that brought his convert and he got baptized that night.

A Trip To The Philippines!

Our granddaughter, Ashley Heidenreich, in Philippines was put in the hospital with Dengue fever. She had been very sick and we put out a prayer request asking people to pray that she'd get better.  Thousands of people were praying for her and we received many emails of encouragement.  A church paid for my ticket to go over to be with her.  On August 27th, I flew to the Philippines.  By the time I got there she was doing better. God answered the prayers of His people and she has recovered.

While I was there the Lord opened so many doors for me to travel throughout the islands and preach. People were saved in all the services and in one service I was able to baptize 27 people. There were opportunities to go soul winning, preach in public school and hold Bible studies. 

When the trip ended there were 7,046 people saved!

There's no doubt in my mind that God had me go on this trip for a reason!
