Dear Friends,


Since our last letter we've had meetings in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Idaho, Connecticut, Maine, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Florida and Portage la Prairie, Montreal and Quebec, Canada. We will finish the year in New York and Ohio before heading west.

The meetings in Canada were exceptional. Visitors drove up from the states and all three churches were greatly blessed. In Montreal Pastor Gabe Cochran & I went down to a car dealer that sold old muscle cars. We both enjoyed the cars. But the best part was we got talking to one of the salesmen and I led him to Christ there on the sales floor. Claude got saved between a 1967 427 Corvette roadster and a 1965 Mustang GT. If that doesn't make it special nothing does! Pastor Cochran will be doing follow-up on him.

We had a great meeting with Bible BC, Orono (Bangor), Maine, with pastor Art Dean. These faithful folks have been meeting above a sandwich shop for years. The last day of the meeting they started building a new church building. The contractor told them they'd be in it by mid-December. Anyone who has ever worked in construction understands contractor's vain promises. Not this guy! Before they even started he called for a plumbing inspection three days into the project and was a day early. (The foundation was there but nothing was done inside of it.) Go to biblebaptistmaine on Instagram and you will see the phenomenal progress they've made. I believe they will undoubtedly make their deadline.

Once again, we've seen folks saved and not a few Christians make some changes in their lives to the benefit of God. It is a joy to be allowed by the Lord to help His churches!


In August we were in Boise, ID, and Kathy was able to see her primary eye doctor. Because of the way we live she has had to see 18 different doctors rather than the stability of seeing the same one every time. He said her left eye is pretty well junk. He said she needs another surgery on it which he plans to do next July when I preach in the area.

My neck is about the same. There is another surgery in my future but we are trying to hold off as long as possible. Please continue your prayers for us.

In Christ's Service,
Samuel C. Gipp
