Helping people. I guess it’s in your nature if you are a pastor, but I’ve always wanted to help people. I guess I’m a people-pleaser and buddy, that’s hard when you are preaching from the Bible, because you’re seldom going to please folks. But, in my heart of hearts, I love helping people.
One of the ways I hope I’m doing this is through my Daily Devotions… http://dkevinbrowndailydevotions.wordpress.com/

Obviously, you are reading this blog. That’s another way I try to help and encourage folks. I also try to do so with my books. And I’m pleased to announce my next one is now available on Kindle for 99 cents.
You can’t beat that!
Click above (right below the book cover) if you’d like it on your Kindle. If you want to know what the Bible says about relationships…jump on in to this little book. It’s only 31 pages. It should take about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to read it cover to cover. You can order it from my publisher in hard copy form if you like by going here…
Can I be totally honest? If you are a parent who has young children, you need to consider getting this book and reading it just so you can be apprised of a way of teaching and training your children. Parents, I know you want the best for your children academically and athletically and for them to be well-rounded. Well, the information in this book will help them to be prepared and equipped emotionally and spiritually for the challenges of our sex-crazed culture.
For those at MPBC, I’m happy to announce that I’ll have 200 books in hand by Sunday!! Woohoo!! They are $5. Here’s the deal. I make pennies…and I mean pennies on the book. I have to order the books from my publisher and pay for them out of pocket to sell to you. So, I’m making an investment on the front-end because I wish SO BADLY someone would have told me this stuff before I started “whole-hog dating.”
I want you to be equipped with everything on the menu. What I’m offering to you in the book is filet mignon. It’s an expensive proposition and most won’t pay the price. They’ll choose hamburger or a cheap sirloin. I get that. But, some will go for gold! They’ll want the best for their children in the purity arena and I’m convinced this is it. So, I hope you’ll give it a read.
I just want to help people.
Isn’t that a neat picture? It’s at dawn last Friday. It’s a picture of the church as the sun was coming up. A bunch of guys were cooking chicken to raise money for our Mexico/Texas mission work this summer.
You talk about awesome barbeque chicken! Wow! Thanks for all the men who came out at “O-dark-thirty” to cook! And thanks to all who worked in the kitchen to box and deliver!
Why do we do this? We just want to help people come to Christ.
See these ladies serving…
That’s Pam, my lovely bride, slicing ham for members of a family who had come to the church after a funeral. Helping Pam is Gena Hodges and Margie Ellis. Not pictured were Jerry and Gwynda Marlowe. Those folks were helping this family have a good hot meal after the burial of their mother/grandmother. Ladies in our church brought food all afternoon on Saturday for this family. Another example of helping people.
For folks who are local…here’s a way to help people. We can give blood.
Mike Kerhoulas asked me to let you know that the Mt. Pleasant Masonic Lodge & North Wilkesboro Masonic Lodge (Temple Street, N. Wilkesboro, beside of Gardner Glass) are both holding Blood Drives on this Thursday.
Mt. Pleasant’s Blood Drive will be held from 2:30 pm – 7:30 pm. This THURSDAY, MARCH, 27TH
NOTE: FOR EVERY BLOOD UNIT COLLECTED 7 LBS OF FOOD WILL BE SUPPLIED (BY THE BLOOD BANK OF THE CAROLINAS) TO SAMARITAN’S KITCHEN – BACKPACK PROGRAM. FEEDING HUNGRY CHILDREN ALL OVER WILKES COUNTY. WHAT A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO MEET PEOPLE’S NEEDS IN TWO WAYS WITH ONE DONATION.
These are all ways of helping people! I’m glad to have the health to do it! Praise the Lord!
