“Father’s Day,” is a day that means different things to different people. There are many who didn’t have a good relationship with their father. There are still others who were abandoned by their father or their father died when they were very young and thus, never knew their father. Still other had a great relationship with their father and so has great memories of the past. These different memories of the past can sure bring conflicting feeling concerning this day we call “Father’s Day.” What our Heavenly Father intended and designed as a father and a mother is not what many people have come know and understand. So, when folks receive Christ as their Saviour and are “Born Again,” and realize they now have a Heavenly Father, it is difficult for them to see Him as a loving Father. This places a great responsibility on the Church to teach the Word of God to our men, women, and children. Our whole World is affected by what comes out of the home and the Church. I realize we can’t rewind time and change the past, but we can begin to lead people to Christ. See those get baptized and disciple them. Following God’s design for equipping the family carried out by His Church is the key to changing a society and ultimately changing our World. We also realize the failure to do this is the reason our World is in the condition it is in this present day. We do have a several of options. One: we can recognize the problem and begin to do what our Lord has commanded us to do and facilitate change. Two: we can recognize the problem and ignore it. Three: we can deny that there is a problem and continue to live as we have always lived. So, these options present us with some realities and some choices. The reality of where we are and why. The reality of the responsibility that each of must obey our Lord and follow His plan. Now the choices: one: if I am a Christian have I been discipled and if not, am I willing to be discipled? Two: If I have been discipled am I willing to make other disciples and disciple them? Now, as with any choices we make, the real work begins. Choices affect destiny: our own and the destiny of others.
So, what are your choices and how are you going to carry them out?

One of the many amazing things in the ministry has been seeing people receive Christ as Saviour and change for God's glory. Part of this change is the burden for others to receive Christ as they have. Another wonderful change is when they take the talents and abilities and begin to use them for the Lord. One of our men came up with the idea to build a garden as a memorial for the next generation to remember those who had sacrificed and served the Lord faithfully over the years. Then several worked together to see this become a reality. One of those folks has risen to the occasion by supplying flowers, labor, and her talent to make this garden just beautiful. Thank you to all those who have invested and labored in this endeavor. DLT ...

Tonight was a special blessing to me as a Pastor. Brother Carl Greene was called into the ministry through our ministry in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. He and his Sweetheart came to visit with us for several days. Tonight he preached for us and as I said before, this is always a blessing for any Pastor. Thank you Brother Greene. ...

What a wonderful blessing today! We went to the Maplewood Cemetery checking when and where some of the soldiers served. We saw some who served in the Civil War as well as some that served in World War II. Then we went back to the Family Pavilion for a picnic and fellowship. ...

Memorial Day remembrance. We are planning a special time of remembrance at 11 AM at VBBC. WE will meet at the Church before walking across the street to the Maplewood Cemetery for a time prayer for the families of those who gave their life for our freedoms. Also, to thank our Lord for the blessings we have from Him in our Nation. We will then move back to the Family Pavilion for a picnic. We are asking everyone to bring enough for their family and what they want to grill. Then we are asking everyone to take time at 3 PM for the recognized time for our Nation to pause in acknowledgement and honor for those who gave their lives defending our Nation. We are truly blessed. DLT

SEEING EVERYTHING THROUGH GOD'S EYES!

As Bible believing people, we look at life and the issues we face through a different lens. When you look at what goes on around you and what you are personally going through in light of Scripture, it makes all the difference in the world. For instance, when Jonah was thrown into the Ocean and swallowed by the great fish, who threw into the Ocean? From Scripture it is plain to see that the Mariners threw Jonah into the Ocean. But, Who was behind the action of Jonah being thrown into the Ocean? Who sent the great fish? Where did the great fish take Jonah? Why didn’t it digest Jonah? How did Jonah stay alive inside the great fish? So, Who was actually behind the action of Jonah being thrown into the Ocean? The one who created Jonah and the one who created the great fish! He created both with a purpose! Our purpose is to glorify God in whatsoever we say, we eat, we drink, or we do. We are to do all to the glory of God. The Scripture teaches that, “…All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 So, when heartache comes into the lives of saved people, what is God doing? Is it judgement? If it is, the individual will have to be the one to make that call. (Even if it is God’s judgement, it is still for our good and His glory.) If it is not God’s judgement, what is our Lord doing in our lives or with our lives? It could very well be that our Lord considered us as He considered His servant Job. God said of Job that he was a, “Perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God and escheweth evil.” Job 1:8 What a testimony! Several thousand years later Job’s testimony is still being published. Billions of people have been encouraged by his faithfulness, patience, and trust in God. Hoy many or who has been encouraged by how you responded to trial and heartaches? Has God judged you trustworthy to give you trials or circumstances with which you could glorify His name? What a different way to look at this life! Our prayer to our Lord should be, “Lord, give me eyes to see beyond the outward appearance: to see what you are doing in and through my life.” Something to ponder..... DLT

Mother’s Day

There are many Mothers in the Bible noted,
With a heart for God and a life devoted.

Among those who in Christ’s genealogy are noted,
Are four who had no heart for God or life devoted!

But our heavenly Father in His wonderful GRACE,
Only named these four as Christ’s genealogy is traced.

The first one was Thamar who twin sons conceived,
By her father in-law who through deception she deceived.

The second, was Rahab who was called a harlot,
Who honored God and was protected by a thread of scarlet.

The third was Ruth, a Moabite, who married Naomi’s son,
Which formed a forbidden union that could not be undone.

The fourth was Bathsheba who bore Solomon by the King,
Though this marriage was made by such an evil thing.

But the Father through the BLOOD and His mighty GRACE,
Declares these Moms righteous, sins gone without a trace!

And so it is today that no matter how bad the start,
With BLOOD and GRACE applied, there comes a clean heart!

So, dear Moms with a pure or very tainted past,
Receive God GRACE, apply the BLOOD, to be clean and free at last!!!
DLT 2015

Though this poem was written 3 years ago, the truth is still valid, the grace is still real, and the blood of Christ still cleanses!

Happy Mother's Day!! I am so thankful to all the faithful Mothers, but not just this one day in May, everyday! Motherhood is from before birth until death. No matter how old the child gets, Mama is still Mama. She still prays for, still thinks about, and still gives her heart to her children. Then comes the grandchildren! This multiplies her love and enlarges her heart. Why? Because she is a MOTHER and has been given a Mother's Heart! THANK YOU MOM'S!!!!

I am especially thankful for my Mom, my Sweetheart and the mother of my children, my children, and my grand-children. I am truly blessed. DLT

This year has brought many different circumstances and many different opportunities to be discouraged or challenged, sad or joyful, to complain or to be content. If our relationship to our Lord is what He intends for it to be, then whatever we face will be working together for good and for His glory. Trying to see everything through His eyes and respond to everything according to His will and with His heart is a difficult thing in this flesh. It can only be done by being filled with His Holy Spirit. We are given many different opportunities to react or respond to situations in life. If we live our lives controlled by the flesh, our life will consist of whether something feels good or tastes good, for me to enjoy it. If I live my life according to the soul, the things I do or enjoy will be determined by my mind, will, or emotions. If I live my life according to the spirit, filled with the Holy Spirit, then my life will be lived as an extension of my Heavenly Father and will fulfil His will and not my fleshly will. But then shouldn’t my will be to fulfil the will of my Creator, my Heavenly Father? That would mean my success and joy would be derived from fulfilling the will of my Heavenly Father not from the praise of men, the accumulation of stuff, or the achieving of some earthly goal. That puts everything I face in life into a different perspective, a different light. Why am I here? What is my life’s ambition? Why do I get up in the morning? Why do I desire to get married? Why do I desire to have children? Why do I train my Children? Why do I love people? Why do I attend Church? Why do support my Church? Why do give to missions? Why do I tell others about Christ? In short, why do I do what I do or say what I say? Is it to please the Lord and that is what I want or is it simply because it’s what I want? This life is very short. It would be tragic to arrive at the end of our life only to realize it has all been in vain. That’s sort of where Solomon found himself. As I move through this life, I desire to realize, I only have one life that will soon be past and whatever I do with, for, and because of Christ will last! DLT ...

What a day. We started the day with a wonderful Prayer Breakfast with Brother Lee Call and some faithful members of Faith Baptist Church in Warrensburg, NY and Brother Guy Goodell and some of his faithful folks. Then headed back to the Church building for a work day. I am blessed by the folks who have helped take care of the tools our Lord has given us to serve Him with carry-out His Great Commission. Today our sign received a new coat of paint from Gabriel, one of our young people and his Dad, Dale Jenks. Our flower beds received a refresher of mulch from Deidre, Emma, Sheldon, Gabriel, and Dale. As you can see this was a family affair for the Jenks Family. Then it was that time of year again to put out the parking bumpers. Evan and Sheldon took care of that task. David and James helped put the bumpers in place, which is a heavy task and helped spread some of the mulch. They also helped move some things around inside the Church building. Robert and several others took on the task of picking up our winter's accumulation of branches, in preparation for Brother Jim who will mow next week for the first time this year. What a day! So thankful for all those who have helped in so many different ways. DLT ...
