Dear Friends,


Since our last letter we've had meetings in Tennessee, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, New York and Connecticut. We leave the RV in Connecticut and fly for about six weeks before returning to pick it up and head for Maine. We've seen folks surrender to trust Christ, get baptized and live for the Lord.

I try to preach in new churches every year so as not to end up doing the same continual circuit as the "Old Boy" evangelist. Last year about eleven of my meetings were in new churches. This year eighteen meetings are "first-timers." The side benefit of that is that we meet some great people that we didn't know before. It is truly a blessing of this ministry.

The New Motor Home

We've put 6,000 miles on the new RV since picking it up in February. An RV is not one, but two things: it is a small house and also a vehicle. The vehicle side of this one has been splendid. It has a 450 hp Cummins and literally glides down the highway. The house side has been a little deficient. Most of the problems have been with build quality, things that simply shouldn't be a problem. We still have some outstanding issues but this one is going to have to get squared away and operate flawlessly for quite awhile to endear itself to us.

The truck recently turned over 90,000 miles and is running well.

Ministry News

One of our most popular books, For His Pleasure, is out of print. I am presently rewriting it before republication. So far I've added two new chapters. It will probably be republished under a new title.

The Understandable History of the Bible in audio book is done and being checked before release.

Also, we now have a You Tube channel. The "Big Deal KJV" series can be found there as well as one video each dealing with James White and Steven Anderson. There's more to come. You'll find it at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCB-Asg1xgM2Ddsk4N48bbQQ/feed

Well, gotta go act like I'm working. PLEASE keep praying for us.

In Christ's Service,
Samuel C. Gipp
