Hot Off the Press!

November 1, 2018

Hot off the press—sort of. I just published the November issue of Gospel Gazette Online. So as to not delay publication, the November edition is appearing ahead of completing proofreading—looking for typos, punctuation and grammar adjustments. Life is busy, and my daughter who is our chief proofreader is aplenty busy with teaching school, teaching Bible classes and speaking this weekend for a ladies’ inspiration day in Arkansas. Evidently, Martha and I have been busy, too—not getting the issue of GAZ done in sufficient time for Rebecca to proof it already. I thought that while Martha and I were in Myanmar for a couple of weeks I would work in the evenings on GAZ, but spare time—as well as energy—was sparse.

We remain thankful for both the writers for and the readers of Gospel Gazette Online. Visit GAZ at www.GospelGazette.com. If you are not now receiving monthly notification when each new edition is available, request a free subscription at rushmore@gospelgazette.com.

October Gospel Gazette Online Published

September 28, 2018

 

Just now, Gospel Gazette Online for October was published to the Internet. View it at www.GospelGazette.com. GGO is the result of the collaboration of several brothers and sisters in Christ who make it possible through a labor of love for souls. One unnoticed but vital contributor to publishing GGO is my daughter, Rebecca. She has ample credentials, education and experience to do a stellar job of proofreading. Her mission is to find all of the errors that I have overlooked or made myself, so we can amend the pages before they are published. She inspects formatting, spelling, word choices (e.g., “seen” when it should be “scene”), punctuation, clarity and, if necessary, questions content.

Gospel Gazette Online is in its 20th year of continuous publication on the Internet. Readers from around the world regularly contact us to express their appreciation of GGO. Please peruse the current October edition as well as the thousands of archived pages. Let us hear from you.

Leoma Church of Christ

September 25, 2018

Visitors from the Leoma, Tennessee Church of Christ came our way recently and spent two days helping us at the World Evangelism Building in Winona, Mississippi. Adults and children worked alongside of us Tuesday and Wednesday, September 18-19. Some bundled tracts in anticipation for calls from them for church tract racks and outreach. Others helped pack books into boxes for distribution without charge to stateside preacher students. Several helped process the newsletter mailing for sister Betty Choate. (Martha and I mailed our newsletters the week before, and Jerry and Paula Bates will mail their newsletter this week.)

Per usual, otherwise, the five of us in Winona fulfill daily orders for books and tracts in the USA, plan our overseas mission trips, visit congregations in the USA to apprise them of their investment in our labors, work on The Voice of Truth International and Gospel Gazette Online and a zillion other things behind the scenes to foreign missions.

Today, we met with a new team member, Cloyd “Ben” Frock. He has newly moved to a congregational work in Arkansas, but he will be participating with World Evangelism from afar as he has time. His expertise and experience promise to bring a whole new and much needed interface with users of our extensive base of Christian literature via the Internet. In the months ahead, the face of the online presence we already have will be upgraded and modernized. In addition, we will make available as much as we can the hundreds of books, tracts and magazines we have to work seamlessly on all contemporary media devices (e.g., smartphones, tablets, etc.).

Volume 97 of The Voice of Truth International is on its way to Winona and ought to arrive sometime this week. Volume 98 is being printed, and we are beginning to work on volume 99. The October edition of Gospel Gazette Online has been completed, and once the proofing and corrections are made, we will publish it to the Internet. Brethren, we are never idle—always covered up in what we do, and we thank you for making it possible to serve our Lord Jesus Christ in this capacity.

August Rushmore Newsletter

September 9, 2018

For the last two days, Martha and I have been processing the August 2018 Rushmore Newsletter—getting it ready to mail on Monday. This afternoon and in addition to that, the August newsletter has been added to the Gospel Gazette Online site. Subsequently, I have sent out email notifications to additional persons regarding the availability of the newsletter on the Internet.

This issue of the Rushmore Newsletter includes an update regarding the acquisition of an ATV (a rural Gospel chariot for a remote part of the globe) for Amerindian brethren in Guyana, South America. Not long from now, Martha and I will return to Myanmar (Burma) in Asia, where we will be teaching for two weeks in a school nestled in a jungle setting. We love being with fellow Christians and non-Christians, too, around the world who eagerly embrace every opportunity to learn more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are indebted to the churches of Christ and the Christian families who make it possible for us to serve at home and abroad.

Winona to Memphis to Nashville—and Back

August 1, 2018

Saturday, July 28, Martha and I departed Winona, Mississippi at our leisure. We headed for Rebecca’s home in Collierville, Tennessee. We drug along behind us our utility trailer, loaded with about $28,000 worth of literature. Since we would be in the Memphis, Tennessee area on Sunday—about two-thirds of the way to Nashville, Tennessee from where we ship to Guyana, South America—it was an opportune time to tote the trailer.

Lord’s Day morning, Martha and I convened with the brethren of the East Frayser Church of Christ for Bible class and worship. We always receive a hearty welcome, which we did this time as well. During class time, I talked about foreign mission work. For the sermon later, I preached about “Bible Authority.” Brother and sister Green, who labor with the congregation, treated us to Panda Buffet for lunch.

By 1:30 p.m., Martha and I had made our way to the meetinghouse of the Collierville Church of Christ. Once more during this church’s afternoon worship, I talked about mission work in which we are involved.

All day Monday was consumed in hauling the literature to Caribbean Shipping Services in Nashville, unloading the trailer, packing shipping barrels and driving back to Collierville. We prepared seven barrels for shipment to Guyana. After they arrive in Georgetown, South America, good Christian brethren with whom we partner will distribute the books, magazines and songbooks throughout most of the churches of Christ in that nation. This is the second shipment we have sent this year. (We welcome used but serviceable songbooks, leftover VBS and class literature, communion ware and Bibles for use among English-speaking brethren overseas. Contact me by email at: rushmore@gospelgazette.com.)

Tuesday, we arrived back in Winona in the middle of the afternoon. Wednesday, I published the August edition of Gospel Gazette Online to the Internet (www.GospelGazette.com).

Thank you for your prayers, encouragement and participation that enables us to be some service to our Lord Jesus Christ. We are partners together in any good that through our hands occurs.
