HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Thank you Thank you!!!—for being a part of this ministry!
A quick recap of 2015 might get us looking ahead with great expectations!
Last year (which was only a few days ago now) was the most interesting year I have had in my 23 years of fulltime ministry. Battles and victories were the norm it seemed for last year! A roller coaster of sorts filled with emotional, physical, financial and spiritual ups and downs brought ME to a NEW commitment to not only ministry logistics but a NEW commitment to the presence of the Lord!
In one of my 13 Christmas shows, I was sharing how we all are looking forward to the Christmas presents we will enjoy. Then I shared how the most important aspect of Christmas is not the paper presents we will enjoy but how much more we benefit by enjoying the PRESENCE of the Lord! I think that teaching was more for ME than anyone else!
I took my own advice and finished the year on one of those rainy December days praying and seeking and enjoying the PRESENCE of the Lord at the little church in Stokesdale, NC where I was saved. They leave the door unlocked and I go when it is completely empty. I go there on a regular basis to help keep me centered and fresh for the next ministry opportunity. It always helps greatly to charge our batteries and sharpen the saw! Psalm 23:3
I want to look back now and show you some of the battles and victories of 2015:

Before moving ahead in the new year, I believe it is a good idea to look back and see what God has done! Where was the proof of His blessing? Where was His Spirit moving and how can I make sure in this New Year that I am on track and in step with HIM and what HE wants and where HE wants me to go? It is found in HIS PRESENCE!
YOU went with me last year as I traveled those many miles for the gospel. YOU were there with me last year as I saw many many folks come to the Lord! Let’s do it again this YEAR!!
I already have several prison shows in Florida and several racing events booked. Schools, Assisted Living/Nursing Home Facilities, as well as many church services around the country!
