Singing – Living A Childhood Dream

“I remember sitting on the wooden floor of our old water pump and telling mom I didn’t feel good. Next thing I remember is laying on the kitchen table, people all around with wet towels covering my body- trying to relieve my fever. Within hours I became stiff, paralyzed, unable to walk so dad wrapped me in his arms and a friend took us to Altman Hospital. The sickness was polio, the year 1952. I was four years old and put in a room with five other children who had polio from the Hartville, Ohio community. I was paralyzed... Read more

A huge thank you to all the children and sponsors. The hunger for the printed Word is enormous in third world countries. During the January seminar in Uganda, we gave seven Bibles each to 50 bishops/pastors and then gave one Bible each to the additional 250 attendees. You cannot imagine how desperate they were to receive their very own Bible in their language. Over 100 children have read approximately 161,000 pages. 245 sponsors have contributed over $35,000 which will all be invested directly into the printed Word…PTL! The top three readers combined have raised $9,531. The cost for each... Read more

Excerpt from a letter from Nelson

We recently received a letter from the daughter of a South Carolina prisoner. She wrote, “Words cannot convey what a blessing your teams have been in their ministry to the inmates and their families, and to the officers. Each time the light of Christ is shared with even one person it impacts many, many others. As your teams have greatly ministered to my daddy, he tries to minister to fellow inmates and be a blessing to the officers.” She closed her letter by saying, “Thank you for your faithful service. It means so very much to those in prison and... Read more
