Thursday night I went to a Gideon Banquet to support their great and needed efforts to distribute God's Word around the world. God's Word is alive and powerful and reaches deep into the hearts and souls of man. His Word speaks His perfect plan and will to faithfully share His love and desire that none should perish.

Too often we take His Word for granted, and we fail to realize the powerful force it can be in broken and needy lives. Gideons place Bible in schools, colleges and universities, hospitals and doctors offices, jails and prisons, military services, and many others places where The Light needs to shine.

I enjoyed the delicious meal last night, the wonderful testimonies, and the insightful updates concerning Gideon ministries. 

The only thing that I didn't like is that they kept referring to pastors and their wives. I sat alone remembering when Kristy had attended such passed gatherings right there in that same country club where we were dining, but also in great anticipation of Wanda joining me for future events. 

I won't be alone for long. God is faithful, and He knows just what I need.


Monday, I will update the results of the great Basketball Challenge between my youth pastor and me to raise money for missions. May the best man win. Most of all, may we raise lots of money to soothe my aching muscles. HA!


  1. Wish I lived near you to witness this great event. The videos were just great. Good luck, may age be on your side.

  2. Have never met you and probably never will this side of heaven...but I say with I bet so many others..WE ARE SO-O-O-O-O proud of you! Letting God does His marvelous work in and through you..that's HIS Pan for all of us and you are doing it well!

  3. Pastor Milton, I am a Gideon her in South Carolina, and have been for about 15 years or so, and appreciate the kind comments, but also want you and your readers to remember that you are the reason the Word is getting out to the world, for without the Pastors and Churches letting us speak to their congregations and receive offerings to purchase the Scriptures the work could not be done, so thanks on many fronts. All we do is put our hands, feet and heart to work for Him, and place the copy of Gods' Holy Word into the hands of those for whom Christ died. To Him be all the glory!
    I apologize for not commenting much lately, but I have been working hard lately, and time escapes me. God Bless and keep you, Beloved of His.
