Two weeks ago when we flew to Chicago, I got a message from Chris Fabry asking if I would appear on his radio program to talk about the Moody Pastors Conference and whatever else was on my mind. It turned out that we discussed many personal things, mostly centering on how the Lord led us from Chicago to Tupelo to Dallas and how our lives hav...
One little boy couldn’t wait for the end of the story.

A few minutes ago I finished my final bike ride of 2011.My total for the year comes to 1625 miles, pushing my all-time miles ridden to 28449.

“We’re here tonight to honor the great Don Wildmon."That’s how emcee Gil Mertz introduced last night’s gala banquet at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. If there’s one thing I know for certain, it’s that the guest of honor didn’t want anyone calling him great. It’s not his style.&n...
This morning we woke up at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. This grand old hotel has welcomed kings and queens, presidents and potentates over its storied 80-year history. This weekend several thousand eager conservative activists have gathered for the Values Voter Summit. Given the rise of the Tea Party movement and the upcoming midterm ...
*I’m writing this note at 11:45 PM on Friday night. In just a few hours I’ll be on my way to the SIM Missionary Village in Sebring, Florida.

When I arrived home from my trip to Canada, Marlene said, “I’ve got something for you.” It turned out to be a very nice birthday present that she gave me last night since I celebrated my birthday on Saturday. She found a birthday card with a picture of Indiana Jones on the front that read, “When they ask how old you are, tak...

14. Traveling LightJanuary 9, 2009
This week we’ve been doing some major housecleaning that started when we decided it was time to get things organized. In our particular situation, there is really no demarcation between our home and the ministry because, as I like to tell people, the “world headquarters” of Keep Believing Ministries is in my office at home and in ...
This morning Marlene and I joined Harrisburg Baptist Church in Tupelo. To say that we waited a long time would be true, given that we moved to Tupelo in October 2005 and started attending Harrisburg more or less on a regular basis sometime in 2006. In the last three years we have seen the other side of church life—the view from the pew, ...
For the last 36 hours, all eyes have been focused on the Gulf of Mexico as Hurricane Gustav slowly makes it way toward the northern gulf coast, probably making landfall just west of New Orleans sometime tomorrow.

It’s been a strange week here in Tupelo. On Thursday a tornado blew through the area, damaging homes and buildings and downing tree but with no serious injuries. I think it’s left us all a bit jumpy. Earlier today our neighbor called to say that we ought to check our attic. When they checked theirs, they saw lig ...
