Misc Pictures of 2019 Missions Conference

Our missions conference was incredible!!!
Thanks for all your prayers and financial gifts for the missionaries. They were honored to receive many of the items they had requested in their "Prayer Request Letter." We were able to provide 6 new laptop computers and 2 washers and dryers for Freddie's Camp Grace Farm. Each missionary was provided with transportation expenses, a great place to stay, great meals, an opportunity to present their ministry, an a very generous financial gift heading into the holiday season. 
The largest gallery I've ever had on the golf course was three, and they were against me. After having my neck surgery, I was thrilled to play 18 holes with Jesse Martinez, Gary Stefan, and Jan Velazquez (3 deacons).  
 I finally got to meet Shirley Brounley. She was the assistant dean of women at the Florida Bible College in Hollywood years ago. Now at 85 she is still going strong for the Lord. She is one of our admins for our new Florida Bible College Legacy Facebook page.
 
 It is always a joy to interview one of our outstanding missionaries on my live Friday morning radio show. Jon and Peggy Sperling are missionaries to China.
Bob Brookes still has it! What a voice to use for the Lord. The meetings were well attended and all the meals provided great exchange with our missionaries.
Although 5 families came from out of state for the conference, The Payne family (Kedron, Jamie, Amanda,  Kaylee and Amy) came from North Carolina and joined Betty and I at the Village Inn for fellowship. They . They learned of Calvary from our YouTube ministry.

When Lonnie and Maya saw pictures being taken of the missionaries they knew that it included them. Patti Rivera said, "All Lonnie talked about this week is becoming a missionary. She wanted to eat healthy like a missionary."
 The Fabulous Firehouse Five
 Freddie knows how to get it done.

 We were so blessed to have Dr. Phil Myers do a workshop.
Pastor Jesse Martinez (our new Assistant Pastor and graduate from Florida Bible College of Tampa) is a truly talented and gifted individual that God has blessed with great spiritual insights into what needs to be done and how to get it done.
