Matthew 28: 18, 20 "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
I wish to thank you for visiting with me. I covet your

Of coarse it isn't me but God's working thru this old preacher to truly reach the world for Jesus. For it is the Lord which deserves all praise and glory and to Him I shout, Well Glory!
Thank you Jesus for loving me and using me to do your work... You are my Lord, my God, my Saviour, my Everything. Please give me strength to continue telling a lost and sinful world about the love of Jesus and how to be saved. Amen!
And now for some of my exploits and pictures of my missionary work.
In the above pictures, are, from left to right; Bro.
Larry Caldwell with his lovely wife Dale and in the next picture is my
family. My son Jimmy, ) myself, Connie girl, who is my lovely and charming wife
of 46 years (as of Feb.15, 2011), and my other two sons, Eric and Scott.
In this picture are Bro. Ben and Cora Barredo visiting
with us here at the Bar-K-Ranch from their Baptist Mission in Bocolod
City, Philippines. They are sitting on the motor cycle that I had ridden
on the day I was saved.
I left in the fall of 1983 and in that two month
missionary trip, save one week in which my leg became infected and I was
bed ridden, I fulfilled 147 singing and preaching engagements and had
7,329 names and addresses of folks who had accepted Christ as their
personal Saviour thru my preaching of the gospel. It was the follow-up
with all of these newborn Christians which caused me great concern. Fortunately some organizations offered to supply
Bibles and materials and most of these new converts found Baptist churches
in their areas to attend and join and became baptized into those local
This is some of the honor students at Hinigaran High
School, Bocolod, Philippines. There were 175 who accepted Christ that day.
This is Mansilingan High School where there were 405 students accepting Christ. They didn't have enough room inside to accommodate the almost 2,000 students who attended and we had to have them on the balcony and all in the front yard of the school. It was an awesome site.
This is Granada High School where 128 students accepted Christ as Saviour. This wasn't a large school but what makes it so memorable is the fact the the lady in the brown dress, who was the principal of this school, accepted Christ along with her students that day. In this picture we are getting the names of the new born Christians so we could get follow-up materials to them and help them find a local church to attend.
I can't remember this little fellow's name but he had twisted legs and had to have crutches. Everywhere I went that day, this little helper wanted to carry my bible for me. It was a struggle for him but I let him anyway. He would just hug that Bible so close to his broken little body and look up at me and smile the biggest smile. We didn't move very fast that day but God gave me a blessing just watching that little fellow that I'll never forget. He was my little buddy and helper that day and for sure, a smiling angel sent from God.
Here are some more newly added pictures of this, my most memorable,
Missionary trip to the Philippines.
I found this display of pictures the other day I had made years ago of my trip and thought I'd add some of these pictures taken those 60 days while I was there in the Philippines. Many are from the high schools and colleges of the area. They're sorta faded and hard to read the inscriptions but perhaps they will show how God moved and blessed as He provided the way to make it all come about and fit so nicely together... Well Glory!
Here is the display all together.
I hope that you all have enjoyed this update on this page and the pictures. (smile)
In 1985 I took a Missionary trip to several churches in
Pennsylvania and to two state prisons in West Virginia, one of which was
Moundsville State Prison, pictured here. They had just experience several
deaths a few days before we got there due to a riot within the walls. I
had Cid Oliver, a friend who had just surrendered to the call of the
ministry go on this trip with me. He was scared to death as was I,
especially when they began locking those steel doors behind us. The chapel
was in the center of the yard and we had to go through 7 sections to get
there. It was a much needed time of spiritual help.
This is a picture of the Ojibwa Indians, in full dress, in Thunder bay, Canada. It was in June, 1987 when Connie and I took a week to see if we could witness to these Indians. We only got to talk to a few. The next year another missionary tried to begin a work there but only lasted a short time. It is a very difficult work there but truly needed...
It was in July of 1992 when this picture was taken. I
was working at Ashland Oil Refinery as a Boilermaker welder and Connie and I were camped at a
trailer park there for the 6 weeks job. I began preaching and singing from
the porch of my camper and these are the folks that came to listen. It was
kind of comical to see them dragging their chairs across the driveway and
setting them up. There were a few times I thought it was going to rain us
out but it always cleared before we started the services. The man who was
staying in the blue striped trailer drank all the time and the first two
Sundays nursed his hangover listening at his window. The third Saturday he
stayed home and didn't drink. The next morning he got up early and got all
cleaned up and brought his chair over. His name was Lee and I heard and believe that
he later accepted Christ. Pictured from left to right: Kathy, Tessa,
Dottie, Leo, Debbie, Connie, Suzie, Orey, Christine, Arlinda, Lee, Ernie,
and my grandson, Scotty.
