Ben's Ford Baptist Church
2009 Spring Revival
March 22-27, 2009
We were thrilled when Dr. Lynn Martin, Pastor of the Ben's Ford Baptist Church, invited us to broadcast their 2009 Spring Revival. Dr. Martin has been pastor of Ben's Ford for over 30 years and has done much to lead his church help the BEAMS Ministry to send Bibles all over the world. We enjoyed working with Dr. Martin again this year.
Dr. Bobby Bonner from Alabama and Missionary with the International African Missions preached great messages every night during the 2009 Spring Revival. I throughly enjoyed getting to know Dr. Bonner and hear more about what is going on in Africa. We enjoyed great singing from the church folks at every service.

Happiness Hill Ministries
2009 Camp Meeting
March 14-19, 2009
I was thrilled when Dr. Jack High invited us back to Happiness Hill Girls Home for their Annual Camp Meeting. Their little Chapel was filled nearly every night. I set up a closed circuit TV in their school room for an overflow crowd. It was used nearly every night. The singing and preaching was Holy Spirit filled at every service. We enjoyed lots of preaching every morning and every night. There seems to be one message that stands out in my mind. It was "Begin Filled with the Holy Spirit" preached by Dr. Fred Schindler. I think every body in the chapel went to the altar after this message. We praise God for this Camp Meeting.

New Hope Ranch Home for Girls
Society Hill, South Carolina
8th Annual Camp Meeting
I met Brother James Gray last fall up in Lexington, North Carolina at a tent revival. I am so glad he invited us to their 8th Annual Camp Meeting at the New Hope Ranch.
Dr. Wayne Chapman had the vision years ago about a home for troubled girls. He founded the New Hope Ranch Home for Girls and has seen many girls lives changed for the Glory of God.
The home was built by a group of christian craftsmen from North Carolina who gave of their time and talents to make the home a reality. The home is very nice on the inside with a huge living room and a large commercial kitchen. We spent our first night here in the home. We were very thankful that they later moved us to a mobile home next to the tent so we could watch over our equipment.
Before I could set up our video equipment we helped pitch the big tent beside the Faith Community Baptist Church. The girls from the home pitched in to help pitch the tent.
This is a very nice tent with a large stage area and seating for about 250 people. The Lord blessed with perfect weather all week for the Camp Meeting.
The New Hope Girls did a beautiful job singing for us every service. The girls were a great blessing. They helped at the tent and in the home every day to make this a very nice week for us.
We enjoyed a lot of beautiful singing all week long but I think The Enlightners may have been the greatest blessing with their music. The Enlightners are a couple of totally blind ladies that sing gospel songs all over the country. They have been singing together for 35 years. They have been very blessed selling their CD's and cassette tapes. They bought their own motor home and hire someone to drive them around the country and setup their motor home so they can sing. They have memorized over 2000 songs. They were a huge blessing to us and this Camp Meeting. God has used them greatly.
We enjoyed great preaching all week long but it seems that the message the Lord used to really reach the girls hearts was the final message by Evangelist Randy Hogue from Alabama. He gave us his Life's Story and the whole congregation just sat there glued to their seats. After the invitation was over and getting ready for the closing prayer the girls began to stand up one at a time and tell how God had changed their lives this week. It was truly an awesome time of revival. I only regret that I was not able to capture the closing testimonies on video. I had already shut down when the girls began to testify. It was a wonderful end to the Camp Meeting.
