ON THE ROAD: At the BFC Annual Conference

Greetings from the 2007 Annual Conference of the Bible Fellowship Church, taking place this week at the Pinebrook Bible Conference and Retreat Center in East Stroudsburg, PA. This actually is a special treat for me since my family and I are members of the Bible Fellowship Church in Harrisburg, PA. So, I am here with our two pastors (Carl and Mark) and one of our elders (Hank), along with approximately 250 other pastors and delegates from the 63 Bible Fellowship churches that exist in 7 states. As is true of most of my visits outside the office, I am again face to face with guys in ministry or in seminary, and am glad to have the opportunity to encourage and provide the great tools and resources available through the ministry of the Banner of Truth. Thus far, it's been good to hear a portion of what God is doing in various parts of the world, in Tanzania, Mexico, among other countries. Indeed, "in the whole world it [the gospel] is bearing fruit and growing." More to come ... Steve
