In Memory of Herbert F. Paynter - Veteran of the Gospel

In Memory of

Herbert Fletcher Paynter 

April 20, 1914-November 11, 2002

Veteran's Day

I was privileged to meet Herb Paynter Sr. back in 1964 at the Grove Community Church in Miami, Florida. He had the compassion for souls like a Dr. A. Ray Stanford. He exhibited the godliness of a Dr. Mark Cambron, and the humble loving spirit of a Dr. Bob Miller. 

When I arrived in the fall of 1964 to be a student at Florida Bible College, I immediately attended Dr. Mark Cameron’s adult Sunday school class. I quickly learned that Mr. Herb Paynter was not only the congregational song leader, but also the Sunday school superintendent.


Desiring to be used as a substitute teacher, I informed Mr. Paynter that if he needed anyone to fill in for any class I would always be ready at a moment’s notice. On many occasions, I was blessed to cover for Dr. Mark Cambron when he had speaking engagements. Sue Stanford helped me by critiquing my English, which was terrible. I thank the Lord for Herb giving me the additional opportunities to serve the Lord.   
About 1967, Herb developed the Tel-Evangelism ministry where hundreds of FBC students led countless people to the Lord. Eventually the ministry grew into an international ministry. It provided a training tool for thousands soul hungry believers to lead others to Christ through a couple minute telephone message. In my personal opinion, I believe there will be more people in heaven through the televangelism ministry than all the Christian Youth Ranch ministries over the last 50 years put together.
Back in the early 70s, I put together a few words to the song about the “Royal Telephone" by Frederick M. Lehman. I sang this song in chapel at the Florida Bible College in Hollywood, Florida.
The song is not an original, but I’m sure you’ll get the point. Hope you like it. Only 1:23 minutes.


Herb's daughter, Kathy Nofal, added a few kind words about her Dad. 
I think it was so interesting that the Lord took Daddy Home on Veterans Day. It always distressed him that he couldn’t serve in WW2. So he went to work for the War effort, building war ships in the Philadelphia Ship Yard. One of the ways God showed Dad that he was right where He wanted him to be was that the last ship he helped build was the ship that brought his POW cousin home to the US!

Yes, Daddy couldn’t be a “veteran” here on earth but sent so many treasures ahead that I’m pretty sure he arrived in Glory as a Brigadier General!

Thank you Yankee. Our love to you and Betty.

Herbert Fletcher Paynter April 20, 1914-November 11, 2002 Herb was born in Philadelphia, the fourth child of seven. He married Doris Jennings in 1938 and welcomed his children Kathy (1944) and Herb, Jr. (1945.) Shortly after moving to Miami, he met Ray Stanford and led the singing at Youth for Christ rallies and eventually at Grove Community Church.
If you appreciated Herb Paynter, why not join me in sending Kathy and Herb, jr. a note of thanks.
On this Veterans Day, November 11, 2018, I would like to honor a great soul-winning individual who worked tirelessly, quietly, behind the scenes, and for the personal glory of God alone.

2018 Pictures (PART 4) of the Missions Conference 
Calvary Community Church of Tampa
All students of Florida Bible College are required to learn how to present the gospel of Jesus Christ by using the 
"Wallet Illustration".
Emillo Barron is a first semester student from Wally Morillo's ministry in Pharr, Texas. 
He is already a soul-winner on Friday night soul-winning.
Trent Dudley graduates in December and is a proven faithful soul-winner. I was taught this simple method by Dr. A. Ray Stanford at the Florida Bible College in Miami back in 1964. Even after 54 years, I have never met a better soul-winner than Dr. Stanford or a better method than the "Hand/Wallet Illustration.
John Hembree (better known as John-John) graduated this last May, and was ordained at the Calvary Community Church. He has already gone to be with Dr. Birbal Boodram in Trinidad and preached a number of times in our summer camp for teenagers and at the Northside Baptist Church in Athens, Ga. for Evangelist Freddie Coile.
Tyler Hambee is also a young man that has finished his four years here at 
Florida Bible College and is now on the staff of Grace Farms with Freddie Coile.
 Bob Gilbert taught a workshop on, "Why we use the King James Version", in our ministry.
Phil and Kay Myers are truly a great asset to our college. 
Kay is conducting a workshop for the ladies picturesd below.
 
Matt, Jen, Alyssa, Courney Floyd are building a new church

served with New Tribes Missions for about 30 years.
 Joe and Terri Potter worked in our Colorado ministry for several
years before going to work as missionaries in Guyana.
 Dr. Charlie Bing is a pastors' pastor. A great defender of 
the gospel against the teaching of Calvinism. He is known
as a great author with many pamphlets of Grace teaching.  
Go to his website at: Gracelife.com
This is Greg and Judy Sirmons from France. We were blessed to
have them with us. While on furlough, they altered their
plans so they could be with us. Please pray for them.
Peggy Sperling was 11 years old when I first met her. She graduated from 
our college in Colorado and taught in our Christian school before going to 
the mission fields in China. Pauline Adams from Texas made friends with 
everyone. Great joy to be around.
Although Gene and Dori Greeson were not able to attend all of 
the conference, they were able to make several meetings.
I was so proud of myself. I got to teach Karen Bing how to 
use a cell phone. Well, not really. I was showing her a list of 
people around the world that let us know they had trusted 
the Lord through our YouTube ministry. Check it at 
Bibleline Broadcast Network on YouTube.
Louis Hernandez is the director of Friday night soul-winning.
He takes trips to the Philippines and Honduras
Freddie and Janet Coile are building a great ministry
 (youth camp) at Grace Farms in Georgia.
Welcome to the man behind the scenes. David Bauer is the man that 
keeps all of our computers, youtube, internet, and live streaming 
ministries coming to the world.
Kedron Payne brought his whole family down to the missions conference 
from North Carolina. His search for a clear gospel church caused him to 
look on YouTube where he found our live Sunday service.
Jon and Peggy Sperling from China
The joy of the Lord is my strength, little joy-little strength.
