1.       Bro. Faris, Pastor of Hardmony Baptist Church is now DR. Faris Sahawneh! (Ph.D.)

Also, Brother Faris has been instrumental in bringing biblical and religious studies courses to West Kentucky Community and Technical College where he is a professor.  I have information on a new online course being offered this fall and have flyers available.


1.      Pastor Heath Mimms, was ordained to the Gospel Ministry, June 12, 2016 by Spring Bayou Baptist Church.  I was honored to take part in the ordination.


2.       The Cowboy Church under the leadership of pastor Chris Clarke are celebrating their 6th anniversary this Sunday, July 24th.  They are petitioning the PABA for membership into our fellowship.  A letter of intent has been submitted and will be voted on at the September 15th meeting at Zion’s Cause Baptist Church.


3.      Pastor Church Houston and Community Life Church reached out to three Murray Communities with “backyard fun zones” on July 6, 7, and 8th.  On June 25th, the Cowboy Church in Draffenville, helped pass out flyers in those communities. 


4.      On September 10th, 2016, there will be a 2nd Amendment rally at the Woodman of the    World building in Murray. Volunteers will be needed to help in this mission outreach.  Contact Pastor Church Houston @ 270-227-3574 or Email:  clhleh@hotmail.com


5.       Pastor Jaime Masso, 1st Hispanic Baptist, Mayfield, and I traveled to Kirksey ahead of an ugly storm to survey the area for a possible church plant among Hispanic workers there.  We are now looking for a place to do a block party and start a Bible Study.
