Becky, Melissa and I began the New Year in Warner Robins, GA.  I preached for Pastor Ron Crank at Anchor Baptist Church on January 2.  Brother Crank and his wife were quarantined the next day with Covid.  As God always does, He put us in the right place at the right time to help the church through this rough time by allowing me to preach for the next two weeks.  Bro. Crank and his wife recovered and are fine.  To continue reading the update from Rodger Bottrell, please click the link below. The Bottrells - March 2022

Seven weeks and seven meetings later-our hearts are overflowing. We were totally amazed at the moving of the Holy Spirit in the services with altar response before the invitation was even given in some of the meetings.  God's Word is all-powerful, and Christians were doing business after hearing the Word.

I am glad to report that Becky's knee replacement surgeries went well, and she is well on the way to recovery.  The doctor said it would take about a year to be back to normal, but we are traveling now.  We praise the Lord for what He has enabled the doctors to do.  Our daughter Melissa is doing very well, and we thank God for His watch-care over her.

It is hard to believe we're looking at fall already.  My dad used to tell me that the older you get, the more time flies.  I believe that more and more. In April we traveled to South Dakota to a church near Mount Rushmore.  This was a new church and they were very excited about learning Scripture.  To continue reading the update from Dave Barker, please click on the link below.

We rejoiced to be with three churches in the hot, humid deep south.  On the way we dropped by to fellowship with Pastor Mike Allison at Madison, Alabama.  Brother Starr preached the Sunday evening service.  Then off to Foley, Alabama to be with Pastor Robert Evans and his new church Bible Study group which is soon to outgrow his home - a nice problem to have.  To continue reading the update from Randy Starr, please click the link below.

Thank God for His strength that is made perfect in our weakness as we leaned on Him and the faithful prayers of the saints after a trip to Patient First and the Emergency Room.  Thank God for supplying every single need during the detour; groceries delivered, flowers, cards, calls, texts, $ gifts.  For Jim & Dave driving to Indiana to pick up Big Red; for Pastor Chris orchestrating it all.  To continue reading the update from Randy Starr, please click the link below.

It is hard to believe another year has passed.  Time seems to go faster the older we get.  I am thankful that 2020 is in the past now.  Although the witnessing was limited that last few months, there are always some who still want Christ as Saviour and we've led them to Him  We are looking forward to having a great year reaching those we can for our Lord.

Blessings awaited us as we hit the road for our Fall meetings.  One was supper with 2 of our grandchildren at Fairhaven Baptist College and a visit with my 90-year-old mother.  Our first two ministry opportunities were cancelled, so we headed north to Kronenwetter, Wisconsin for a 5-night meeting with Pastor Brent Moodie at Fellowship Baptist Church.

What a mess our country is in spiritually.  A few years ago, I wouldn't have dreamed of the things that the liberals in America are trying to implement.  I pray our country does not continue to adopt socialistic philosophies, which can only result in the loss of our religious freedoms.  Make sure you vote on election day.
