I Peter 3:15 = “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:” Many of you are aware that I have a ministry of serving as chaplain at a couple of race tracks in west/central Wisconsin. Each week during the Summer I travel to these tracks and pray with each driver before they race. It surprises me that they accept me as well as they do, but I am praying that the drivers become aware of God’s presence and that He loves them and wants to have a personal relationship with them.
The other day I had one from the racing community call me. He had just been diagnosed that he has cancer. He wanted some answers as to what to expect in the future. I had the privilege of sitting down with him and sharing God’s plan of salvation and he prayed to accept Christ as his Savior and put all his trust in Him. There have been times I have wondered if my praying with these men and women was something I should be doing, but that phone call was a great encouragement to me.
We rejoice that last year the infamous Roe V Wade Supreme court decision was overturned. That was good news. Sadly, that doesn’t correct or end the great problem we have about the attitude many still have about abortion. We still need to daily spend time in prayer that God would work in the hearts of people to change their minds about abortion. Perhaps then, when He does, we will be there to share His plan for their lives.
The month of April will be a busy one for Baptists for Life of Wisconsin. We have two pro-life rallies scheduled. One on the 15th at Faith Baptist Church in Oak Creek, and one on the 22nd at Immanuel Baptist Church in Menomonie. I would like to encourage you to consider attending one of the two.
In March we held our annual meeting for BFLW and we now have 2 new members on the board: Gina Buhrow, who is the wife of Pastor Scott Buhrow at Berea Baptist Church in Stevens Point. She is also the director of the Assurance Women’s Center in Appleton, but most importantly, she is my daughter-in-law. The other new member is Ed Walters of Elroy, WI. He is a member of First Baptist Church in New Lisbon. Welcome aboard to both of you.
I shared with the board at the annual meeting that, because of improved health on my part, I plan to continue as director until the end of 2024. I am not completely over my health issues so I still need your prayers and they will be greatly appreciated by me.
