We are now looking forward to 2009 with great excitement!
February 8, 2005, God gave me Proverbs 8:21. This was the promise
verse for the one million dollars to pay off the debts of the
ministry and build the Victorious Valley Baptist Church. We ask
that you pray with us this year for the one that is to give this
amount. Pray for God’s blessings to flow richly upon this person.
We are believing and hoping it will possibly be this year. The Lord
knows best and His timing is perfect.
The Lord has sent us two widows to the homes this year, Mrs. Elaine Adams and Mrs. Carolyn Bansky. Mrs. Adams has two grandchildren here at the home. Her daughter was murdered last year and it brought some sad and hard times for this mother and her granddaughters. Since her move here, God has done a great healing, and Mrs. Adams is such a blessing to the homes. She is called “Mammy” by all of us.
Mrs. Bansky came from New Jersey a couple of months ago. She is such a blessing as well! She is from a wonderful church that we love! Her husband died suddenly last year. Her daughter has been here at the home for a little over a year. Pray for Mrs. Bansky as the holidays have been very hard for her. The girls keep her smiling.
The Ladies of the church along with the girls’ home have started a
nursing home ministry. We go every Saturday and visit those
precious people. The staff told us that people are smiling that
have never smiled. The girls sing and sing to them. They seem to
love that the most—well, the chocolate candy runs a close second.
New CD on the Cross
We are working on a new CD. All the songs are about the Cross. The devil
has fought this project more than any we have ever done. Please
pray for us to get it finished and ready for Easter.

Special Prayer Request
A very dear friend of ours, Bro. Frank Pittman from West Virginia, has been diagnosed with cancer. The doctors are saying 2-4 months, but we are praying for God to do a miracle. He was scheduled to preach here at the Graduation Jubilee in June. We are asking if it is the Lord’s will, He will allow Bro. Frank to preach the graduation! Please pray for God to help him and his family as they go through this very hard trial.
Again, thank you to everyone who supports and prays for this work!
We need your prayers and financial support more than ever before.
How can we ever find the words to thank you all for your love and
