Volume 30 Issue 3 (3rd Quarter 2017)

"When you go on the internet, please pray for the Hoffman Family – your missionaries to Cyberspace."   Volume 30 Issue 3 (3rd Quarter 2017) Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! The Latest News:    Maureen and I attended the 20th Annual East Texas Baptist Camp Meeting. We had our display set up all five nights and made some wonderful new friends, and were able to discuss our ministry with many people. I had the privilege ministering at Osage Baptist Church in Amarillo Texas. I was able to do our power point presentation during the Sunday school hour, and was given the opportunity to preach the morning message.  Church Website Ministry: I was contacted by a gentleman I had worked with back in 2012 to help set up a website for Countrywide Prison Ministries. The new ministry is now Mountain State Ministries, and he was in need of a Contact Resource Management Tool (CRM) to keep track of inmates. He was currently using a tool called SugarCRM, but is at end of life and was evolving into something called SuiteCRM. I was able to set up a subdomain on one of my servers, and install SuiteCRM for him to manage his contacts. I met with Pastor Robert Moreland of Sandy Lane Baptist Church (Fort Worth Texas) and spent a couple of hours with him at the church. We have been hosting their...

From a prisoner in MS..

From a prisoner in MS.. Thank you for sending me the Bible study lessons to work on and for allowing me to continue in studying God’s word with FamilyNet. I learn things that I never knew before with each lesson that I complete with FamilyNet. I trust you can send the replacement certificates for the Bible study courses that I completed thank you. I said a prayer for you that you can find someone to help you with your Bible correspondence program. Keep me in your prayers as I continue to rebuild my life and live fully for the service of our Lord and Saviour Jesus...

Lampasas Baptist Church

I received a call from Lampasas Baptist Church in Lampasas Texas. I had “rescued” their domain (lampasasbaptistchurch.com) last year when it had expired and they wanted to know what they needed to do to take control of the domain again. Let me take time to briefly explain the domain “rescue” mission we have here. The Baptist Ministry Database (baptist-ministries.org) is a link based database. A domain with many links into it has value, no matter what is on it. People will hit links to a website causing hits to that website. A domain that takes hits is worth money, and as such can and will be registered by someone looking to collect on a minimal investment (a .com domain can be registered for a year for about $10). As I was going through and checking links out I found ministry websites that had expired had been re-registered and now contained advertising content (not optimal) and even pornography. You can imagine how I felt, having a Baptist Ministries Database no linked to a pornography website! The domain for Lampasas Baptist Church had just been released and I found it was in several Fundamental Baptist Directories and I rescued it. Back to yesterday… we talked for a little while and Pastor Stall decided that he would like to keep their domain (lampasasbaptistchurch.com) on our hosting, and that his son would update...
