Dear Friends,


The meetings have been going quite well. In 2016 I preached in: Michigan, Ohio, Louisiana, Texas, Maryland, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, Illinois, North Dakota, Montana, Connecticut, Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, and Canada & Australia. I had 56 meetings & preached 203 times. We've seen folks saved and Christians get right and even had some folks leave Stephan Anderson's cult.

The Joke's On Us

The Boise area is known for its mild winters. The usual light snow melts off during the day. Not this year! I'm sure you're aware that this Winter has been a rough one all across the country, and this area has not been spared. It has gotten to -11 degrees. That is simply too cold to live in the motor home so in December Bro. DeMichele graciously let us move next door into the church Mission House. It has made all the difference in the world! I haven't shoveled snow in 30 years but this Winter I set a record. Fact is, I have always loved shoveling snow. I could do it all day long. I am aware of the weak-links my body suffers from and am careful not to push beyond what is safe. So, other than strained and sore muscles there have been no problems. Sometimes the good Brother who plows the church will come by and plow the driveway for me.


We saw our son, Nathan, who pastors just 5 hours north of Boise in Lewiston, ID, over Christmas. He informed us that this July we have another grandchild on the way. That will be their sixth child. We are excited to meet the newest "Little Gipper!"

As always, we are ever in need of your prayers. I cannot tell you how I am daily targeted by those who hate God's Book. Please continue to pray for us!

In Christ's Service,
Samuel C. Gipp
