Rescue Update

Two More FoundWell – two more domains were recovered and rebuilt over the last two days. I have a hard time understanding the way a web presence for a Fundamental Independent Baptist Church is treated. To me it would be like taking your church building,  hold your last service, and the next day the church becomes a topless bar, but the church sign is still on the outside of the building, your ads in the local paper still run inviting people to church, and other churches are not notified that your are not holding a joint revival service as they show up for the service.  Both of these that were rescued have links pointing to their domain name. While I don't think there is anything wrong with letting a zealous church member set up your web page for you, the domain should be in your church's name and the pastor, staff or deacons should be on the contact lists.

Seagoville Road Baptist Church, Balch Springs Texas

On Sunday December 28 we had the pleasure of attending Seagoville Road Baptist Church in Balch Springs Texas (South of Mesquite).

According to their bulletin, they ran 211 last week, with 85 coming in from the bus ministry.  The preaching was excellent. Source: Cyber-Missions...

Update 12/22/2008

Not so good newsFor those of you that are praying for us, the visit today did not go all that well. While we have to wait for the results, the doctor doing the test told Maureen that it did not look good. Our God is a God of miracles, but we understand that He is in control and that all things will work for the good (Romans 8:28).Our Microwave Oven decided to quit today….I worked with the Pastor Virginia, we put up a simple website for him today. He did not want anything complicated.  We registered a domain (less than $8) and got him up and working for Christmas. Source: Cyber-Missions...
