baptist.org – A Place for all Baptists

This past week on Facebook, I noticed a request from Dr. HL Champion, requesting prayer. He has had problems with his website baptist.org, was trying to get it back up, and is looking to relaunch the website in May. I offered to help him if I could, and Dr. Champion took me up on my offer to help.      Baptist.org had been down for over a week. I was able to locate a problem with their DNS entries and had the website backup in about 30 minutes. I had several subsequent discussions with Dr. Champion and found myself volunteering (I guess I have not learned anything from the Navy) to be part of his team. I am currently handling security on baptist.org and helping with development with the May relaunch of Baptist.org (even though I keep telling Dr. Champion I am NOT a web developer)! I will be helping with the project as time permits. I am impressed with the vision and goals of Dr. HL Champion and pray the relaunch baptist.org will bring glory and honor to the Lord, as well as salvation to the unsaved, and edification and education to believers around the world. An interesting side-note – Dr. Champion has owned a domain almost as long as I have. I registered out first domain back in February 1995 (fmlynet.org). Dr. Champion registered baptist.org back in May...

Second Chance Baptist Church Fayetteville NC

Brother Ken Capps contacted me several months ago. Pastor Capps was interested in planting Second Chance Baptist Church in San Antonio Texas. We registered a domain (secondchancebc.com) for Second Chance Baptist Church, and I built a minimal website indicating there would be a new church plant in San Antonio. Pastor Capps currently resided in North Carolina and was planning to move to Texas in March, which was moved off to April, and then to May. I received a phone call from Brother Ken late last week indicating that the Lord had been working on his heart, and that he and Mrs. Capps had ultimately felt called to stay in North Carolina and plant their church in the Fayetteville North Carolina area. I updated the Second Chance Baptist Church website to indicate that the new church plant would now be an outreach in the Fayetteville area. They have a meeting location set up, are busy passing out tracts (with good response) and are planning on having their first meeting on Mother’s Day (May 13) 2018! Maureen and I have been praying for brother and sister Capps and Second Chance Baptist Church. It is a blessing to be able to be a part of their...

From a prisoner in Nebraska

From a prisoner in Nebraska… Dear FamilyNet International, Thank you so much for my lessons and thank you also for all your hard work and time in sending my lessons to me. Today here at (name of prison) we had snow. It looks like Western Nebraska and down South around here. Could get some snow the weatherman said and he was right. Everything is white again. Winter is not over yet. Thank you again for my lessons and may God bless everyone and their familys at FamilyNet International. I hope that you all had a good Easter with your family. God...

90000+ Digital Bible Tracts Distributed

We have now “handed out” over 90,000 Digital Bible tracts over the Internet in English, Chinese, Spanish, German, French, and Arabic! If you have been reading our blog or newsletters for any period of time, you know I have an “evangelizing” Facebook account full of about 2500 lost people. I instituted a set schedule posting rotating links to all our tracts in all six languages on Facebook once a month on this Facebook Account. Additionally, links to Bible tracts (as well as full Bible Tracts) are posted on Internet Newsgroups (imported to Google Groups) as well attached to Bible reading schedules. Please pray for us to break Digital Bible tracts 100,000 by...

From a Student in Louisiana

From a 68 year old student in LA that began taking our lessons in March of 2015 and has completed all the courses we offer… Dear Bob and Maureen, It has been my honor to take the courses you provide. Since 2015, these courses and trues contained therein have helped me to focus on eternal rather than temporal things. At my age, it is easy to become rather cynical about this would. These courses and especially the trues contained there have helped to focus on the facts that God is in control and knows what He is doing. Only He knows the end from the beginning and therefore, only He can be trusted with our past and present as well as our future. All I can say, is keep up the good work. I trust many have and will take advantage of these courses. God bless...
