THESE ARE PERILOUS TIMES!
CHRISTIANS MUST BE VIGILANT

Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner;
But be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God.

2 TIMOTHY 1:8

Dear friend of the BFT,

TEACHING IN NEW YORK AND INDIANA

Although I did not intend to write another BFT UPDATE so soon, I feel that I must. WHY? Because we have gone so many places and done so many things during the months of APRIL & MAY that I would have to write a book as big as WAR & PEACE if I wait another month to tell you all that DR. WAITE & I have been doing since last I wrote. How is that for a long sentence? Since visiting with you last, we have been in HORSEHEADS, NEW YORK, with PASTOR RADUCZ, as well as in THE KING JAMES SEMINAR #9 at FAIRHAVEN BAPTIST COLLEGE, Chesterton, Indiana, with PASTOR ROGER VOEGTLIN & staff.

WORLD WAR IIíS MEMORIAL BRINGS EMOTIONS

As I AM WRITING TO YOU DURING THIS MEMORIAL DAY SEASON (May 29, 2004), I AM LISTENING TO C-SPAN AND ITS COVERAGE OF THE DEDICATION OF THE WORLD WAR II MEMORIAL IN WASHINGTON D.C. Some are calling it "a place of meditation." Tom Brokaw is speaking. The monument is a magnificent tribute to the men of my generation who left home and family to fight for the freedom of the United States of America and the world. Over 50,000,000 human beings perished. They died in homes, on battlefields, in oceans, and in prison camps. The USA sacrificed over 400,000 brave sons & daughters. They died so you and I (among other things) would be "free" to worship God according to our religious convictions. Those heart beliefs, back in 1945, came to you and me from the Words of God--mostly the King James Bible. You and I have religious freedom because America cared! Even though I did not fight with guns ablaze, that war was "my" war. I was in high school. I remember food stamps and sugar & gas rationing. I met with other girls and women to wrap bandages for the wounded. We had air raid practice and pulled our shades at night. It was from my Ohio high school rooms that our boys left us. Our classmates put down their books and basketballs to wear military garb and shoot guns. The price of freedom cannot be measured in money or in words. It is measured in emotions--the emotions of mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, fatherless children, and wounds. How can I not shed tears as I think of those years?

REMEMBERING OTHER HEROES

As we learned today about our men of World War II, and as we heard of their goodness and decency, as well as their human fears, we discovered that the troop entertainer, BOB HOPE, would have been 101 today. Then, PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY, if he had lived, would have been 87 today also. Read in the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER since writing this to you, that POET WALT WHITMAN, whose tomb is a stoneís throw from us here in Collingswood, was born on May 31,1819. He was a nurse in the Civil War. Of course, I personally remember my sister, AUDREY JUNE SANBORN, who was not in any shooting battle, but at the age of twenty fought another war--a cancer war with Hodgkinís Disease. She lost. My husband fought that same MEDICAL war decades later. He survived. God was good--but isnít He always? Audrey would have been 72 on May 31st; but they donít have birthdays in Heaven, do they? How I miss her--I miss that kinship which sisters have as adults. I never had that. If you do, appreciate it!

GODíS CORNER WHERE YOU ARE

NOW TO GET BACK TO THE BIBLE FOR TODAY BUSINESS which we choose to think of as GODíS BUSINESS in this corner of the world. 900 PARK AVENUE & DILL is OUR "corner" ! Have you ever been here to see us? WHAT IS THE CORNER OF YOUR WORLD?

All THIS TALK ABOUT OUR "CORNER" OF THE WORLD, REMINDS ME OF A SONG I USED TO SING IN MY CHILDHOOD. Remember INA DULEY OGDONíS words?

BRIGHTEN THE CORNER WHERE YOU ARE

Do not wait until some deed of greatness you may do,
Do not wait to shed your light afar,
To the many duties ever near you now be true,
Brighten the corner where you are.
Just above are clouded skies that you may help to clear,
Let not narrow self your way debar,
Thoí into one heart alone may fall your song of cheer,
Brighten the corner where you are.
Here for all your talent you may surely find a need,
Here reflect the Bright and Morning Star,
Even from your humble hand the bread of life may feed,
Brighten the corner where you are.

CHORUS

Brighten the corner where you are!
Brighten the corner where you are!
Someone far from harbor you may guide across the bar,
BRIGHTEN THE CORNER WHERE YOU ARE.

KJB SEMINAR #9

AT FAIRHAVEN BAPTIST COLLEGE CHESTERTON, INDIANA

It was the third time that Dr. Waite had spoken concerning the defense of the King James Bible and its underlying texts at FAIRHAVEN and his second KJB Seminar there (BFT #3186/1-14 @ $42.00+$5.00 S&H). This time he was not one of the speakers at the Annual Bible /Conference. He came after the Conference to teach at the KJB Seminar #9. This time his class met (MAY 3-6, 2004) during regular college hours. There were fifteen students in attendance. They were mostly students from the college, plus a man from FAIRHAVEN BAPTIST CHURCH, and a BFT friend from Northern Ireland. The Irish man learned about the seminar from our BFT WEB PAGE (www.biblefortoday.org) and E-MAIL. The seminar is an intensive course! My husband taught four days, seven hours a day. THE COLLEGE VIDEOTAPED THE TEACHING. WHEN IT IS READY, WE WILL TELL YOU HOW YOU MAY ORDER. The videotaping was a student project. They plan to merge the shots of Dr. Waite and his power point charts. I wonder how it will turn out! I sat in on a couple classes and can testify that it was a good class. The students meant business--and so did the teacher. They were taking it for two semester hours of college credit!

TWO YEARS AGO, DR. WAITE WAS INVITED TO GIVE A KJB SEMINAR AT FAIRHAVEN FOR THE FIRST TIME. That class was immediately after the Bible Conference. All classes were dismissed in 2000. For that reason, many of the faculty were able to attend. It seemed to me, --if my memory serves me--that there were about 35 or more students in that class. Many have ordered that teaching video (BFT #3069/1-13 @ $39.00+$5.00 S&H).

DOUBT CAST AGAINST THE WORDS OF GOD

PASTOR ROGER VOEGTLIN & his staff appreciate my husbandís teachings on the VERSION QUESTION. I heard Dr. Voegtlin say this year from the pulpit, at the Thursday church prayer meeting, how he had been absolutely bewildered by the DOUBT that was put into his mind when he was a young Christian and a student at BOB JONES UNIVERSITY. THE DOUBT WAS WHAT WAS AND WHAT WASNíT THE WORDS OF GOD. The DOUBT was so great in his mind that he was filled with questions. It was then that he began to study the subject of Bible inspiration & preservation himself. At first, he read books by the more rabid-writers. He did not want to put himself in their camp! Then--according to his testimony--he found Dr. D. A. WAITEís book DEFENDING THE KING JAMES BIBLE (BFT #1594-P @ $12.00 + $4.00 S&H). Finally, Dr. Voegtlin had found a King James Bible position that was sensible, sound, and Scriptural. I donít know how many years ago that was, but my husbandís book was first published in late 1992. It is now in its 9th printing.

BY INVITATION ONLY

One thing I appreciate during the seminars is there is much extra time for questions and answers. That is when the students can see how much my husband knows about the subject. Youíd appreciate such teaching, too, in your church or Bible college. AS AN ASIDE: my husband does not invite himself to places to speak. He waits to be invited. He charges no fee--only asks that you pay his expenses and take a freewill offering. I know preachers who say, "Iíll be in your area; could I speak to your people?" I know men who do this. I suppose there is nothing really wrong with it; but I canít picture the Apostle Paul going up to a stranger and asking that stranger if he (Paul) could speak in that personís church. Then, there are preachers and college officials who say, "When you are in the area, weíd like you to speak to us, Dr. Waite." My wonderment is WHY would Dr. Waite be in an area if he had no reason to be there? If you want him to speak to your group, invite him!

ANSWERS & REASONS MUST BE OURS

With recently published books like BIBLE PRESERVATION AND THE PROVIDENCE OF GOD by Sam Schnaiter & Ron Tagliapietra of Bob Jones Universityís faculty, as well as GODíS WORD IN OUR HANDS written by a compilation of various writers (most of whom are connected with BJU), those of us who are convinced that the Words of the Textus Receptus and Masoretic Hebrew underlying the King James Bible are the Preserved Words of the original languages must have our reasons bolstered with proper teaching. The authors of those books try as hard as they can to destroy those who believe in the Preservation of Godís Words.

DR. WAITE ANSWERS CRITICS ON RADIO

My husband is answering these author/critics in his daily and weekly radio programs which you can hear on WOEL at 89.9 FM. That station airs in the Maryland/Delaware/ Pennsylvania/New Jersey areas. But, if you are not in that radio reception area, you can hear it at www.MBCMIN.org/WOEL as the station has streaming around the world. We appreciate PASTOR ALLEN DICKERSONís RADIO OUTREACH, DONíT YOU? He is celebrating fifty years of preaching there in his church in Elkton, Maryland this month. Dr. Waiteís Saturday program is 30 minutes in length and is aired at 3:00-3:30 p.m. Now, I realize that all of you canít get on the Internet--and even if you could, you may not be able to tune in at a particular time. So I think you would be very interested in subscribing to Dr. Waiteís thirty-minute radio program called THE BIBLE FOR TODAY WEEKLY. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK TO BE A REGULAR MONTHLY SUBSCRIBER AND SEND US $5.00 A MONTH FOR FOUR PROGRAMS. Call the office for further instructions: 1-800-JOHN 10:9.

RADIO PROGRAMS IN DEFENSE OF THE KJB ON SHORT WAVE

WATCH FOR DETAILS

ORDER "DBS NEWS" FOR ANSWERS TODAY

EVENTUALLY, DR. WAITE HOPES TO WRITE ABOUT THE ABOVE-MENTIONED BOOKS AFTER HE TALKS ABOUT THEM ON THE RADIO. Some of the authors of those books mention or quote my husband by name or they infer things about him, refuting his statements at times. It shows me that DR. WAITE & THE DEAN BURGON SOCIETY is making an inroad into this Bible version controversy. Now, if you want a recent article on the subject, send $2.00 to us and weíll send you the latest DEAN BURGON SOCIETY NEWS. In the most recent issue, DR. THOMAS M. STROUSE, the Dean of Emmanuel Baptist Theological Seminary (Newington, CT), has given a CRITIQUE of Bible Preservation and the Providence of God book.

There are some other excellent articles in that paper. DR. GARY E. LAMORE has written about ERASMUS of Rotterdam, A Good Son of the Roman Catholic Church?? H. D. WILLIAMS, M.D., has an apologetic section on The Mechanisms for the Preservation of the Words of God. DR. CLINTON BRANINE of Heritage Baptist University wrote The Date Problem and the Text, and JEBIDIAH PORTER wrote about the Theological Significance in the Text Variance in Acts 9:31. I personally think you should subscribe to this paper. Dr. Williams is the assistant editor and Dr. Waite, my husband, is the general editor. It is only $5.00 a year and $10.00 in Canada. I donít know what it is in foreign countries.

MORE ABOUT OUR WEEK AT FAIRHAVEN

FLEW INTO CHICAGOíS MIDWAY AIRPORT

Because it is cheaper to fly on weekends, the college arranged for us to be in Chesterton, Indiana, for the week-end prior to the KJB SEMINAR. DAN AMACOST, the Greek & Hebrew teacher and Registrar at Fairhaven Baptist College, was in charge of us while there. He ticketed us on ATM airlines. The flight went directly to MIDWAY airport on the other side of CHICAGO. (I used to live in Chicago when at Bible School fifty-nine years ago. I canít believe it! Seems like I was another person--but, I guess, I am another person. I certainly hope that the Lord has worked in my life to conform me more to the image of His dear Son. Only He knows.) EVANGELIST RODNEY STEWART and his daughter, CHRISTA, met us at the airport. CHRISTA IS SIX YEARS OLD AND CHARMING. I am so glad that the Lord brought her into my life. Every time I saw her, while at FAIRHAVEN BAPTIST CHURCH & COLLEGE, she came over and hugged me or smiled her beautiful smile. All we adults want from young people is a caring heart and a truthful tongue. Some folk only care about themselves and fail to reach out to other persons. I have lost track of the times Iíve been in a church and no one speaks to me. Even preacherís and speakerís wives are rude this way. Selfishness abounds, doesnít it?--not only with the little ones. Even with adults, it seems to be, "Me, Me, Me."

PRAYER MEETING ON THURSDAY NIGHT

DR. WAITEíS SYNOPSIS OF "KJB SEMINAR #9" AVAILABLE

My husband gave a summary of his week of teaching on Thursday night to the whole church. His talk was called KJB SEMINAR #9--40-Minute SYNOPSIS! It was an excellent presentation. I was proud of him. Ask for the audio tape, (BFT #3189 @ $4.00 + $1.00 S&H) and learn.

Fairhaven Baptist Church has its mid-week service on Thursdays. The church has a huge auditorium and it looked well-full for the middle of the week. Of course, not as full as the Sunday morning and the evening services. The Sunday we were there, the BUS MINISTRY outdid itself with almost 2,000 BUS RIDERS in attendance. There was a special visitation push on Saturday by the bus captains and their crews. All that work really paid off! The goal of the bus captains is to invite and bring people from surrounding areas so that when they get saved, the families will want to come to church on their own.

Getting back to PRAYER MEETING--it is encouraging to see so many folk caring & praying in the mid-week service. I remember talking with a woman several years ago, who was a teacher in a growing church where I attended. I assumed she went to prayer meeting for she was a teacher in the Sunday School there. But no! She said, "I have other priorities!" I was very surprised. She was inviting me to be a special speaker for her childrenís group--yet, she didnít care enough for the church (or the Lord) to be in prayer meeting with the people to pray for those to whom she ministered. ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE ABSENT ONES IN YOUR CHURCH?

BFT BAPTIST CHURCH MEETS ON THURSDAYS AT 8:00 P.M.

900 PARK AVE., COLLINGSWOOD, NJ 08108

We in our BIBLE FOR TODAY BAPTIST CHURCH, here in our home on 900 Park Avenue, have our mid-week service on Thursdays also. WE PRAY, PRAISE & LEARN. Right now we are in the book of Jeremiah. We have these discussions on audio, video, the Internet, or you can view us live on "streaming"!! bftbc.org/media_server.htm, 8:00 to 9:15 p.m.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR "BFTBC.ORG" STREAMING

Go to www.biblefortoday.org, and scroll down on the page about three inches, to the ORANGE bar that says "LISTEN TO THE MESSAGES LIVE AND ON DEMAND." Then, click "LIVE FEED." You can see us live on Thursday nights and participate, too. WE ARE LIVE FOR OUR MORNING SERVICE (10:00--11:30 A.M., as well as our Bible discussion in Acts, Sundays at 1:30--2:30 P.M. also) THE REST OF THE DAYS WE HAVE TWENTY-FOUR HOUR STREAMING OF BIBLE TEACHING FROM OUR CHURCH, taking 2 chapters, verse by verse each day from Romans through Revelation. JOIN US!

When I was a child in Lagrange, Ohio, we had prayer meeting on Thursday evenings, too. In those days, church always began at 8:00 P.M. or 7:30 P.M.--even on Sunday nights. But today with special TV programs and sports events, people have to be home for them. Those were the days when mothers and wives didnít work outside the home and the farmers had to milk their cows before coming to church. World War II changed all of that, didnít it? BUT, we canít blame all of our indifference to prayer meeting on that event.

When we started our BIBLE FOR TODAY BAPTIST CHURCH, we continued the Thursday night-time spot. You see, we have had a Bible study in our home for over twenty-five years on Thursday nights. How many people have walked into our house during these years! WE SEEM TO BE LIKE A "WAY STATION." In times of "need," people with "needs" walk in our door. We serve them in the name of the Lord. They stay awhile. They leave us . We seldom hear from them again. We love them. Some continue to love us. Some hate us. Some have gone on to be "with the Lord." This has been a part of THE BIBLE FOR TODAY ministry here on the corner of Park and Dill Avenues in Collingswood for thirty-nine years. A DELIGHTFUL REST FOR ME

Before I tell you about NEW YORK STATE, and our visit there, I must mention the beautiful guest room in the FAIRHAVEN BAPTIST COLLEGE girlsí dorm! Every morning, RA (a Cambodian friend and intern at the church) dropped our breakfast off at our door. What service! My husband left for class every morning. I was alone. I had nothing to do, while my husband was teaching, but to rest, read, write, and pray. It was one of the best "rests" I can remember for a long time. No TV! No ringing telephones! No delivery trucks! No workers and office rooms! At meal time, I would walk from the girlsí dorm, by way of the beautifully landscaped campus, for the school lunchroom. Each night, we were escorted to local restaurants for food and fellowship with special people.

Every time I passed the large fish tank of exotic fish, I would chat with my wet "friend" in the water tank. I know the women who passed me talking to the fish must have thought I was a little "off." Maybe I was, but I am sure that when I tapped on the glass and spoke to one of the fish, he would come to my tapping finger and look at me as I said over and over again, "Hello, hello, hello!" Whether it be true or not, I thought so. It kept me busy anyhow. Before I left for the airplane, I called "my" fish over to me and took his picture. He came. I snapped the shutter! I wonder if he misses me. He is blue with an orange eye. Do you want to see his picture?

THE WAITES AT HORSEHEADS, NEW YORK

BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH "APRIL KJB BIBLE CONFERENCE"

MOTHER-DAUGHTER BANQUET & PREACHERSí WIVES TALKS WITH PASTOR & MRS. ALEX RADUCZ

I canít tell you when I enjoyed being at church more than BIBLE BAPTIST IN HORSEHEADS, NY (Rt. 14 at Wygant Rd. ZIP: 14845 [PHONE: 607-739-4535].) We flew there--a short flight. It only took one hour on a prop- jet to get to nearby Elmira, NY, but going home only thirty minutes on a new jet to Philadelphia. That was a plus! NO TRAFFIC TO MAKE ME NERVOUS. (Ever since that car bumped into the passenger side, where I was sitting, as we were driving to Joe S.ís graduation, Iíve been nervous in traffic.) I really enjoyed the people in that church. My husband said that I liked the people there because they liked me. Maybe that is true. I spoke twice --once to about seventy women at the mother/daughter banquet and once to about ten women called "the pastorsí wives," even though all of them werenít.

MORE DEFENSE OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE TEXTS

My husband spoke eight times at Pastor Raducz request from Saturday to Monday evening. His theme was DEFENDING THE KING JAMES BIBLE. He spoke to the church on Saturday night. Then, on Sunday, he spoke in the Sunday Schoolís QUESTION & ANSWERS (BFT #3183/1 @ $4.00 + $1.00 S&H), the morning & afternoon services (BFT #3183/1-3 @ $9.00 + $2.00 S&H). The church was packed. Maybe there were 300 there. I canít recall if it were 200 or 300 OR 250 (so much has happened since early April.) All I know was their beautiful white pews were filled with happy, INTERESTED faces.

NO ONE EVER CARED FOR ME LIKE JESUS

The singing was excellent. The two Raducz sisters played the pianos. They do not read music, but they certainly can run their fingers over the keys. Pastor asked me to sing so I sang one that daughter Jennifer knew, "I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus." At first I didní t think I could find my note with her introduction on some modern-type keyboard. "Oh, no!" I thought, "not one of these singing off-key songs again!" BUT PRAISE THE LORD, I found the note and sang, "NO ONE EVER CARED FOR ME LIKE JESUS!" How very true. So often people are fickle and changeable. One day they say how much I mean to them and the next day, they are tearing me up in little pieces to their friends--BUT NOT JESUS!

A POT LUCK DINNER BETWEEN SERVICES

AFTER THE MORNING SERVICE AT BIBLE BAPTIST, IT IS THE CUSTOM OF THE CHURCH TO HAVE A BIG POT LUCK DINNER. There was so much food! Some of it was left over from the previous day and the MOTHER/DAUGHTER BANQUET. We here at BIBLE FOR TODAY BAPTIST CHURCH eat lunch between our morning and afternoon service also. ONLY, WE GO TO WENDYíS. I think it is a good idea myself. We first observed this at Chinese churches where my husband had ministered. They would have Chinese food brought in from some restaurant or food cooked in their own kitchens (depending on the church). Then everyone would buy the food and eat it in the church building. After fellowship, they would have their Bible classes in various parts of the church. It was so there in HORSEHEADS. The Sunday we were present, Dr. Waite spoke to the bulk of the people in the main auditorium on the King James Bible issues (BFT #3183/1-3 @ $9.00 + $2.00 S&H). You must hear these messages!

THE PASTORíS MEETING ALL DAY MONDAY

On Monday, there was a New York pastorís meeting. There was interest in the KING JAMES BIBLE issues among the pastors and lay people who attended. These men certainly devoured the book table. As Iíve told you before, we are always happy for that. Of course, we like the proceeds--even though the prices are very reduced; but mostly we enjoy seeing the INTEREST in the subject of the Fundamentalistsí Errors on Bible Preservation (BFT #3182/1-2 @ $6.00 + $2.00 S&H). Several people purchased DEFINED KING JAMES BIBLES. By the way, we have a new supply 5,000 DKJB/ MEDIUM LEATHER (BFT #3000M @ $35 + $5.00 S&H), as well as DKJB HARDBACKS (BFT #3000MHB @ $15.00 + $5.00 S&H). Some churches show absolutely no interest in the book table. This means they have little to no interest in the subject. By the way, neither my husband nor I keep any of the book table money. That goes, too, for the speakerís honorarium. But we do need funds for our ministry. We have books and other publications to pay for and three on the staff who need weekly salaries. So feel free to help us financially any time the Lord leads you to do so on a regular monthly basis. THANK YOU.

AN ENCOURAGEMENT TO PASTORíS WIVES

I spoke to the pastorís wives and other women downstairs during one of the menís sessions. I called my talk, ENCOURAGEMENT TO PASTORíS WIVES (BFT #3188 @ $4.00 + $1.00 S&H). This tape isnít the best of quality because of the recording conditions, but you can hear it. Some church women put their Pastorís wife on a pedestal and then knock her off with their tongues. They are surprised when we are just as human as they are. Pastorís wives bleed like other women. They hurt, too. Often they have problems and heartaches that the church people know nothing about--and sadder still, care nothing about. One of the biggest conflicts against the preacherís wife is the "cattiness" of the women in the congregation. It is a shame! But that is how it is!

PASTORíS WIVES ARE DIVORCING

I also spoke of two former pastorsí wives, whom I know, who have divorced their husbands. That selfish act made it impossible for their husbands to be preachers. Sometimes women are too selfish. Sometimes young pastors (and older ones, too) do not know how to be husbands and are selfish. The selfish, hurting pastorís wife cannot wait for him to learn how to be a good husband and father . She leaves! There can be so much conflict in the parsonage. Thatís why I wonder if the term ELDER means "elder" for older. There is so much to learn in marriage! Men jump into the pulpit before they learn the ABCís of husbanding. Also, the way some congregations treat their pastors makes the wives want to run away from it all. Congregations have much to answer to for the ill treatment of the men they have called into their churches to pastor them. No one is perfect--except you and me, of course. (Ha!)

ADVERSITIES MAKE US WHO WE ARE

The main reason I was in HORSEHEADS was at the invitation of MRS. RADUCZ to speak at the Mother/Daughter Banquet. I looked forward to this occasion but wondered what I would say. Iíve been talking about SARAH, Abrahamís wife, on my radio program. Because it was fresh in my mind, I wanted to talk about her and the people around her that influenced her life. Much to my surprise, I began to speak of adversities that make us who we are. I told about my mother and the adversities in her life. Each of her children had a handicap. One of them was my retarded sister who was born birth-injured because of a doctorís blunder. In fact, the doctor was off drinking as mother agonized in labor with Beverly. (I guess he was another one of those who thought he could handle his drinking.) Then, my sister, Audrey, died of Hodgkinís disease at twenty. It was a horrible illness with no hope! I, at the age of three, went to Rainbow Hospital for Crippled Children in the Cleveland, Ohio area. I stayed in a hospital bed for three years. I wonít go into the whole thing but a particular surgery was performed on my left hip that never was done on a human being before (if I understand it correctly.) Praise the Lord it worked and I can walk and bore five children normally. I had no intention of going on and on in my devotional about such adversity; but immediately prior to my talk, the Raducz sisters sang about a little boy who was buying a pair of shoes for his poor, dying mother. He wanted her to look good when she met Jesus. The song touched my heart, as well as all of those in the auditorium. Eventually, I talked about Sarah who was not a stranger to adversity either. Maybe you would like to hear the audio tape of that Mother/Daughter devotional. If so ask for BFT #3184 @ $4.00 + $1.00 S&H.

A Letter or Two

FROM WISCONSIN: You are a blessing to us in Wisconsin. Thank you for a wonderful Godly Pastor that stands for the KJV. . .!

FROM CALIFORNIA: I am so glad for your stand on the K.J.V. Bible.

FROM THE WEST: You hit the nail on the head, Sister Yvonne, This is exactly what happened to me from some "sisters" whom I thought loved me in CHRIST! ( a comment on "Why Do Seasoned Pastors Retire" in Apr/May/June 2004 BFT UPDATE:"theyíll turn on his wife and grind her into mince meat.")

FROM WASHINGTON: Thank you for your great message. What a blessing! This message has given us Biblical confirmation about separation & encouraged us to stand firm on separation.
