I have set up a twitter account under the Username Cybermissions. This is new to me, but it seems like it can be of use to get the ministry information out there. I have attempted to set up an RSS Feed from this BLOG to Twitter. Will see if it works.
I have set up an RSS feed of this blog on my Facebook Page in an attempt to syndicate our ministry further. I need to see whether or not this article makes it there.
I took a quiz on facebook yesterday to see "Which past preacher are you most like. The result:
Lester Roloff was born in Dawson, Texas, in 1914. His conversion at the age of fourteen came during a revival meeting when a godly Sunday school teacher urged him to give his heart to Christ. He received his education at Baylor University, taking his Jersey cow, "Marie," along with him and paying for his room and board with four gallons of milk per day. After finishing school, "Brother Roloff" conducted a work of ministry both as a pastor and as an evangelist in his own inimitable style. His ministry touched the lives of millions of people throughout the USA and in many foreign countries. Roloff was never shy about voicing his convictions. He opposed Baylor University's plan to grant an honorary degree to President Harry Truman because of his frequent use of profanity. In 1950, he separated from the Southern Baptist Convention. In 1969 Roloff became pastor of the People's Church in Corpus Christi, Texas. Under his leadership, the church began an outreach ministry to troubled teens and adults under the blanket name, "The City of Refuge." Roloff's homes included: Rebecca Home for Girls, Anchor Home for Boys, Lighthouse for Men and Boys, and the Jubilee Home for Women. Roloff fought an eight-year battle with the state of Texas regarding licensure of his ministry. He refused to allow his church ministries to come under the control of the state. "This is going to be the greatest day of my life," Lester Roloff said to a friend as he flew off to a meeting on November 2, 1982. And truly that was his greatest day, for on it he completed his earthly journey and reached his heavenly Home. The church and the homes he started were not ended by his death in a plane crash; they continue to this day.

) We chatted online for a while yesterday, (about a year ago I had "rescued" a domain for a church he was helping out – so he was familiar with our ministry.
