From The Minister’s Desk 

“. . . I am making everything new . . .” 

Revelation 21:5

All kinds of new things going on! New paint, curtains, flooring, chairs, furnaces, air conditioners, and restrooms,. Almost so much newness, we won’t be able to stand it. It has been time for improvements for a long time, and now God is providing all kinds of upgrades for us.

In this New Year, I hope that we are allowing Him to make the necessary upgrades in our lives that He desires. I pray that we are all growing stronger in Him. Hopefully you are spending more time in His Word and praying more often than in the past. We also need to be aware of the people He puts us in front of us to reach with the gospel news of Jesus Christ!

Yes and something else new is that Carole and I are headed for retirement! When we finish on September 1, we will have spent 10 full years with you all. We will miss all of you and pray that you will be faithful to the task of making Jesus known here in The Dalles. We will be headed to Florida to live close to our kids and grandkids! It will have been 44 years of full time ministry for both of us. We will continue to serve Him there, and you will continue to serve Him here!

 Because of Him,   



“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”


II Chronicles 7:14
