I was approached by a lady that wanted to do online Bible studies for a bunch of friends. She is calling her study “Lamplighters.”
She had registered a domain and set up a website (letyourlightsoshinetoday.com) on Goddaddy’s Website Builder using their one month free trial.
She asked if I could host the website using WordPress. I told her I could (and would). I created (to the best of my ability) a duplicate Lamplighters website using her content (less the copyrighted images) in WordPress at wp.letyourlightsoshinetoday.com so she could look at WordPress and see how it works.
She feels that the site looks fine and is going to see if she can grasp WordPress (which admittedly requires a bit more technical expertise than Website Builder does). WordPress also offers more features and flexibility, and best of all is free.
She told me she “would make it work.”
When she is ready we will go in and move the top level domain to point to the WordPress Website and go live.
I had the pleasure of preaching tonight at the closing service of the missions conference at Bible Baptist Church in Russelville Arkansas. Our relationship with the church started when we hosted their domain (bbcruss,org) back in 2008. The church is a warm friendly church and Maureen and I were blessed. We will be heading back to Texas in the morning.
The missionary wives were given a monetary gift by Bible Baptist Church to spend on themselves. This church and this conference has been nothing but a blessing! Today the ladies went out on a shopping spree (they have not returned yet). After the ladies left Pastor Walcott announced that he and the staff were taking the men on their own shopping spree to purchase new custom fitted suits. We each were bought a brand new suit, shirt and tie complements of Bible Baptist Church in Russelville Arkansas. BBC has been a blessing to Maureen and I.
Maureen and I arrived in Russelville Arkansas safely around 4 PM this afternoon. I had the pleasure of presenting the ministry at Bible Baptist Church in Russelville Arkansas this evening, kicking off their home missions conference.
To Whom it may concern at the FamilyNet Bible school. I am writing to you this day 9/16/17. I just want to let you know how much I am enjoying the Bible lessons that you have been sending me. What I am learning as a result of the Bible studies will not only help me in my walk with Jesus each day. I know in my heart that what I am learning will also help me to help others in my personal ministry of our Lord and Saviour Jesus. I thank-u-for all that you do to help a person learn about our Lord and Saviour Jesus. You are very good people. I look forward to completing the rest of lessons on the Bible studies titled Practical Christian Living. The two books that you recently taught me a lot more also all through we never have met in person. I send my prayers out to FamilyNet ministries and all those who were involved in the recent hurricane.
From a prisoner in NC… I am so happy and blessed to read the Practical Christian Living book 8, lessons 22-24. Lesson 22 Managing our Finances, knowing that everything is the Lord’s, that we are only stewards. It so refreshing to read how not to go into debt, managing money wisely. Everytime I take a class on re-entry we are taught that in order to be successful in the outside world we have to get into debt, through loans, credit cards, chasing a FICO score. Coming out of prison I feel the last thing I need is more debt. I just don’t see the need for it. I know I have enough debt already I will have to deal with. I plan to downsize my lifestyle in order to get my life right with the Lord and be debt free.
