Our hope and prayer is that the fine month of February has found you in full stride in 2018. For the Borden Family it is proving to be a month filled with working, travelling, singing, and preaching. In fact, only the last Sunday has not been booked yet. That is exciting! In other exciting news…
We now have another driver in the house. Abby turned 15 years old on the 7th and aced her drivers permit test. To quote Karen Peck & New River, “Pray Now”. I am looking forward to training a full time chauffer.
January saw the launch of the Riches From the Pages radio broadcast ministry on WECO (wecoradio.com) in Wartburg, Tennessee. We had been praying about a radio ministry and had honestly kind of conceded that the most we might have is a podcast that would live on our website (evangelistadamborden.com). The Lord surprised us with an open door that no man could shut. Now you can listen in East Tennessee to WECO AM or online at wecoradio.com at 8:30am on Mondays to our preaching broadcast. We are very humbled at this answer to prayer and would like to thank brother Dustin Bonham with WECO for this time slot to preach the Word of God to more people than ever. Tune in Monday mornings on your computer or smart phone if you are not in the WECO area.
That brings us to a new opportunity. Some of you might remember that we were the featured evangelist of the month on the Word Christian Broadcasting network in West Georgia for the month of December. Well, after seeing the news that we were going to be on WECO weekly, brother Scott Thomas, who works with WCB and is pastor of Pine Ridge Baptist church in Dallas, Georgia, reached out about adding the Riches from the Pages broadcast to their stations and online stream. We believe the Lord is working, don’t you? We would ask that you would prayerfully consider supporting this new radio opportunity. For $25 per week we can be on WBC in either Dallas, Douglasville or Newnan as well as the online stream one day per week. Pray that the Lord would provide the funds to support this broadcast. If He directs your heart or maybe your church Sunday School class, youth group or missions ministry would like to be the one to send the Gospel over the airwaves on WBC or on a station in your area, contact me and we can expand this part of our ministry. Go to the contact page to get in touch.
We will be headed to Newnan, Georgia this month on the 9th, 10th and 11th at Westside BC with the Old Time Preachers Quartet (see Links page) to sing and preach. Then on the 17th and 18th we will be with Pastor Clark Herring and Grace Baptist in Eatonton, Georgia for their Couples Banquet and all day Sunday. As we mentioned before, February 25th is our only open Sunday for the month so pray that the Lord will send us somewhere to be a blessing. Other open dates coming up are March 11th and 25th, April 1st, 22nd and 29th. On May 20th we will be back at Pine Ridge BC in Dallas, Georgia for the morning services and Harvest Baptist Tabernacle in Jonesboro with pastor Joe Arthur that evening. Pray that the Lord would send the calls for the remaining open dates.

We leave you with this today. The Holy Ghost has planted my study in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah in these days. Until we get other orders from headquarters, our burden in 2018 is to preach a word that the Lord can use to Rebuild the broken Church, the home, and the walls of protection, and “as one man” Return to a hunger for the Word, an obedience to His Will, and a Worship that the Lord desires. God is illuminating the riches in these pages and we ask that you pray that His Word will go forth as we continue in our efforts of Preaching, Teaching, and Reaching. Pray for us and give us a call or email on the contact page. God Bless you.
