  2. Morning,
    And a beautiful one it is. It's such a blessing to have a week off and to have friends who miss me. You have all been in my thoughts as well.
    I always need and appreciate the prayer.

    Have a nice week,

  6. I watched your "What is sin?" DVD . Very good. Would you be available for a call on Monday night?

  7. I hope all is going well for you and your family. I'm still hoping to one day soon visit you and your church, but I am currently working Sundays.

    Would you be willing to offer any guidance and criticism as I complete my dissertation?

  8. Hi Pastor Bill,
    Loved your message! It is very apparent how apostasy has filled the modern church with symbols over substance! Pastor Bill, did you know that to get a copy-rite on a Bible you must change 20% of the content?
    I heard a teaching on that subject years ago and wondered why all the different translations are coming out. I believe money has much to do with it but the change in content and the leaving out of certain things is scary.
    Thank You for Your word to teach us.

    Sin is not talked about much any more- I like the way you don't shy around anything- keep doing what you're doing.

    I have to admit that I hope things start back in the right direction- I do believe, but I don't like that much change.

    I am praying for you, and praying for our elected leaders.
