Ministry Update

April – December 2016

Another year is swiftly drawing to a close and we are getting closer every day to our Saviour’s return!

The last several months have gone by so fast that I didn’t realize how long it has been since our last update. We have covered a lot of miles and had some great meetings all around the country.

It seems we have been everywhere from Florida to Alaska and just about all points in between. We had the privilege of being in a couple of “young” churches that are just getting started and doing a great job in their respective locations.

Over Memorial Day weekend, we were able to be at Bayshore Baptist in Kilmarnock, Virginia. Pastor Patrick Creed went there with his family to plant the work just a few years ago and they have been greatly used by God there.

God used Pastor James Frost to start Solid Rock Baptist Church in Bellefontaine, Ohio six years ago and he and his family have been faithful to serve the Lord there. We were able to be with them for their sixth anniversary revival meeting and to see God work in the lives of the people.

We were also glad to be able to be at Victory Baptist Church in Fresno, California the last week of August. This church just celebrated their sixth anniversary and it is an exciting place to visit. We have been holding meetings there with Pastor Rick Owens since they first got started and it is so encouraging to see the spiritual and numerical growth that they have experienced.

Just in case you were wondering, God is not done working in the lives of people!

As exciting as it is to be in the “young” churches, it is just as exciting to be able to minister in well-established churches that have been faithful to God and His Word for many years. Too often we focus on those who have given in to the strong pull of the world to “fit in” with a depraved society, however, there are plenty still standing fast on the Word of God.

Let me just tell you about one of those churches, Gid Brown Bible Baptist Church. Brother John Burke had been a rough man before he got saved, but when he met Jesus, everything changed! After surrendering to preach the Gospel, he started Gid Brown Bible Baptist Church in Washington, Virginia. He is now eighty eight years young and just as dedicated to sharing the Gospel as ever. We held a revival meeting at Gid Brown in September and I’m sure we left there having received at least as much encouragement as we gave! I pray that I can someday have just a small measure of the energy, compassion and determination to reach the lost world that Brother Burke still has.

The last few months we have had ongoing repair issues with our fifth wheel. We have been pulling it for over eight years and it has held up extremely well, however, it is now beginning to show it’s age. It seems every time we pull out, we have yet another repair to deal with. Please pray that the Lord will give us wisdom about what course of action to take. New fifth wheels are very expensive, but so are constant repairs.

I would also ask you to pray for some dear friends in the ministry that are having health issues. Evangelist Tom Bard (Meridian, ID), Pastor Dave Greegor (Dalton, OH) and Pastor Ray Boutwell (Kenai, AK) all had heart surgery in the last couple of weeks and all are recovering well. Please pray for these men and their families. Pastor Bruce McComb (Payette, ID) was diagnosed in November with stage four cancer. It has spread throughout his body and they are trying to decide what course of treatment to follow. Please pray for the McCombs and for Lighthouse Baptist in Payette.

What a wonderful thing to know that as born again children of God, we can look ahead to the future with confidence. Psalm 100:5 says, “For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”

That sums it all up, He’s always been good and always will be! His mercy will always be there whenever we need it, it’s everlasting! His truth endureth to ALL generations, it’s never changed and never will, praise the Lord!

Just in case you were wondering, God is not done working in the lives of people!

God bless you,

Mark Rogers
