What a weekend!

What an action packed weekend. The girls played their guitars and violins at CCM (Craig Church Ministries) annual meeting on the mountain. I’m so excited the girls can play an instrument. I sure wish I could. But, I was all into basketball and now I can barely jump and my knees are worn out!! Ha!! These girls will take their musical ability with them throughout their lives. Something to think about in our sports saturated culture. Most of us dried up jocks wish now that we could do something else besides watch it on TV. Way to go girls!

Speaking of training. Check this little cutie out. It’s only 1 minute long and believe me…you’ll be amazed!!
Amazed that a two-year old can do this? I asked that as a question. It may seem amazing…but, it isn’t really. Because two-year old’s are sponges. They will learn what they are taught. That can be a Sponge-Bob jingle or the 23rd Psalm. It goes back to what we choose to train them in…right?
I taught men this very fact about (training up children…Ephesians 6:4…and how it’s the Father’s job to train the children spiritually) in an Associational Men’s Conference in Henderson, NC this weekend. I taught on Friday night about being a “Godly Man in an Ungodly World.” The second session was about becoming a Godly Husband. Saturday’s sessions were “Becoming a Godly Father” and “Becoming a Disciple Who Makes Disciples.” Check out this neat email from the Pastor who invited me and the men of the Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church Praise Team to come…
It was incredible how God used you. I had men going home to their wives Friday night in tears seeking forgiveness. Who knows, we may have a surge in membership coming in June. Men kept coming up to me Sunday and also sharing with others how God broke and encouraged them. My next step is to get CDs made for our men. Oh how precious is the bitter and sweet Living Word.
I am tempted to go ahead and schedule you for next year, so you will remember what material you covered.
May God continue to do a mighty work at Mt. Pleasant through humble God-fearing men.
Bruce…thanks for those kind words. We’ve got another conference coming up in October at Mt. Pleasant. You can register here if you’d like to come…and get this…there is a free BBQ chicken dinner Friday night, October 15th at 6 pm for the men and his entire family who come.
Bruce…thanks again for a fabulous weekend with you and your wonderful folks at Central Baptist Church in Henderson. Check them out at…
Yesterday, we had the privilege of having Daryl and Rachel Carter with us at Mt. Pleasant. Rachel is the 2009 Mrs. North Carolina. What a lady!
Daryl, Rachel, Jack and Jude Carter
She brought a fantastic message to the young ladies about modesty and Daryl talked to the young men and men about being a man who runs the race well from 1 Corinthians 9. Check out their ministry at:
Finally, last night the Mexico Mission Team…
2010 MPBC Mexico Mission Team
…that we took to Weslaco, TX and Progreso, Mexico headed over to Granite Falls, NC to share with Covenant Baptist Church. Covenant’s people are amazing! So friendly and hospitable! Fantastic!! I feel like we are in the first century indeed. One church helping another church!
Check out the praying at the altar. See the children praying as well. Boy, you can’t get that in Children’s church or in a side room eating Cheetos and watching Veggie-Tales can you? Awesome!!
Look at 'em praying!!
My cup is full! Praise the Lord for His marvelous works!!
Oh…one last thing. Check out this neat video about our founding fathers. You’ll be shocked that one of our President’s was a Pastor. I bet you’ll never guess who he is…take a look…
