Dedication of Ruth Bell Graham’s Prayer Garden

Congressman Mark Meadows and wife Debbie visit with Clint and Kay Pollard

Wednesday, June 1, 2016 Doug and I had the honor of attending the private dedication of Ruth Graham’s Prayer Garden. The Garden is set around the Chatlos Memorial Chapel on the grounds of “The Cove” in Asheville, NC.   The Garden consists of two tiers in woodlands with shrubs and perennials and large open areas for ground cover. Almost every plant in the garden blooms in one way or another.

New Van for Jamacia

Clint and Kay Pollard

It has been a blessing for Avery Pregnancy and Resource Center to be a part of the Jamaica Pregnancy Resource Center.  No donations to APRC went to purchase this van.  Individuals contributed directly to a special fund set up for this purpose.  Many of you have shared in making this “Dream” become a reality and I “Thank” all of you that have contributed.

Revival in Yancey County

Beth Davis with Clint Pollard

“I have to turn around and go back”, I said to my wife as we were headed home from church.  Bradley Boone and his wife were headed home from Concord Baptist Church when they passed a group of teenagers standing beside the road where a young man had gotten killed in a wreck.  After passing them Bradley felt as if the Lord was speaking to him and he knew he needed to turn around and go talk to the teenagers standing there in a huddle.

Have You Lost Your Joy?

I want you to think with me about the time that God saved you from your sin and saved you to His Eternal Kingdom. I am quite sure that was a precious day indeed. It would be natural for there to be great joy on that day. There is little doubt that it was a day of relief as the burden of sin was lifted off you and placed upon the out stretched arms of Christ. This was a day of assurance as you were provided with the firm knowledge that the Creator of the universe had washed the filthy rags of your righteousness and you stood before Him whiter than snow. What blessed assurance indeed!

Behind The Walls

Reverend George Patton, Jr.

Photo of church service in India

Many have asked me why I keep doing missions.  Everyday letters pour in from around the world asking me to come and preach and teach and minister in many areas.  I want you to see one of those letters that I have received today.  My heart is moved to tears every day upon receiving these. I cannot reach them all, but by training up students to go into these areas, we can reach the world and bring home so many that are lost. Please read one of the letters I received from India today.
