I wish we could afford everything ourselves, but we can't, and so money becomes a necessity for us to do what we do here. As of March of 2016, I will no longer have a job (I've worked a job for the past seven years to provide for this ministry), and we have decided to try putting me on working this ministry full time; however, Lorraine is still working a full time job because we could not survive without at least one of us having a paycheck coming in. Many people get the impression that we get tons of donations from many people, but we don't.
I took care of most of our basic bills with my job, so now we're riding on faith that our needs will be covered while I work to provide more materials.
Money we receive goes to paying our basic bills (e.g. electricity, phone, internet, etc), emergency things we need (e.g. car or computer repairs), and we also save back money to print tracts and make DVDs to hand out to the lost in our area. Most church buildings and websites never talk about where the money goes, and I want to make sure everyone understands that we're not trying to buy a 65 million dollar jet, we're just trying to pay our bills so we can keep working. If our materials have helped you and your family, and the Lord God has convicted you to help us share the doctrines of the Lord Jesus Christ with others, consider charitably sending us something by mail:

|[(Paypal takes 4% of what you give as a transfer fee, so mailing something is cheaper in most cases.)]
Concerning Paypal, we request that Christians be responsible
, and never give us something in debt
on a credit card. Only give if you have the money, don't borrow it from a corporation.
And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
Because we give away all our materials for free, it puts us in a position where we must rely on the cheerful givers, and every little bit helps. We absolutely refuse to become a corporate sellout shopping mall like most leavened "ministries" out there.
Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
Lorraine and I hope we have been charitable to you
in all our work to provide our materials free as a gift.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing... And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
-1 Corinthians 13:2-13

Current Events & Projects: Oct 30, 2017
I've neglected to update this for six months, but there's not been a whole lot of change. My spinal hernia still continues to cause me daily pain, and although I've tried to get up and do some exercises, it's really made the problem worse. I've prayed many times for the Lord God to heal me, but He has not done so, so I will not despise it. However, I am visiting our chiropractor about twice a month since he's been kind enough to work with us and create a situation that's more financially suitable for us. I would be going to see him twice a week if I could afford it, but we can't, so as long as I can continue to labor in the Word of God, I'll be content with things as they are now.
Lorraine is getting ready to leave her full-time job at the end of the year and move into full-time business in her market garden. The Lord Jesus Christ has allowed her to turn enough profit that she can expand the garden, and she's doors are opening for her slowly, but surely. There's been some rough hiccups, and we're not out of the woods by any stretch of the imagination; many things could go wrong if the Lord God does not want us to continue, but we continue to pray for her success since she'll be home a lot more often (I rarely get to see her when she's working a business and job full-time), and that will allow us to spend more time together, and do other Biblical things like fasting together.
I just want to take a moment to thank each one of you who have sent us money to help us out. As I've said before, this is my full-time occupation now, research, study, and teaching, and without your help, I'm not sure what I would do. My medical condition would not allow me to have a normal job anymore, and so I appreciate every one of you who, through your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, have seen it fit to be charitable to us. Since I went full-time in ministry two years ago, we've gotten by, and it's more than I could have ever asked for. I'm so grateful to our Lord to allow me to continue to work as I am, and I pray He will allow us to continue for as long as we can, so that hopefully more people can be saved, and more saints can learn to sanctify themselves in preparation for the coming final days.
Stay tuned because we've got more teachings on the way...
We need the help of other dedicated Christian brethren to take some of the ever-increasing load:
--Online Sharing/Social Media--
Donating to our ministry consists of more than just money, because we cannot share the Gospel alone. It takes huge amounts of time for me to research and write articles, work on our website, create podcasts, print out materials, pass-out materials, and numerous other projects we would like to complete, on top of teaching every Sunday at our church, my own personal studies, and having to work jobs to upkeep our home. Like I said, I run almost all this ministry by myself, and I am only one man; I can only do so much. (I would also encourage people to read our FAQ on "I want to volunteer to help this ministry, what can I do?")
As we produce new articles and videos, I have little resources to spread the word on a variety of social media outlets. Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Linked In, Pinterest, MySpace, LiveJournal, Tagged, Orkut, Ning, etc, and thousands of internet forums (not to mention personal emails and print-outs to hand out to others), we need a large group of Christians spreading out our material as often as possible, and right now we have very few helping out with this. We highly appreciate the help of anyone who helps us spread the truth of Biblical doctrines in our teachings, and we consider these folks very important volunteers, and the backbone of what we do. (The Bible says those behind the scenes are more worthy of honor. 1Co 12:23
) Outside of financial assistance, this is probably the biggest need we have right now because I have a lot of material that almost never sees the light of day, and if we can't reach people, there's no point to any of what I'm doing.
[(Example: Pick your favorite topic [dinosaurs, holidays, atheism, etc], find an article on our website relating to that topic, and copy the URL link. Then go to a social media site [Google+, Twitter, Facebook, etc], and search for posts with similar topics. Comment and paste the article link into a response to share the information with others.)]
--A Skilled Artist--
For those of you who have read a lot of our articles and watched our seminars, you know that I like to provide visuals when I can. I also like to make humorous images when I can, and I like to put my own personal touch on them, but Lorraine and I can't afford to pay for them out of our own pocket, so I've learned how to make my own stuff to the limited extent I have skill to do so. If there is an artist that's willing to volunteer to put to paper some concepts I have for certain projects, make some stuff and send it to us.
You don't really need to contact us to inquire about a project; we have to borrow images from other people all the time that I use for editing, so if there is any image on our website you think you can improve so we don't run into any copyright problems in the future, send it to us; we'd love to see it. Over the years since I had this support page up, we've had many people write and talk to us about it, telling us they are going to work on things or send us their artwork, but not one person has ever actually sent us anything they've produced, so we're waiting for people to start doing things instead of just talking about doing things.
We need Christians who are willing to contact their local church leadership, organizations, and radio stations to schedule presentations, radio interviews, etc. I have spoken on Atheism, Evolutionism, Church Issues, Government, Paganism & Holidays, and much more in church buildings, conference halls, and radio shows. We need to get the truth to the congregations so we can warn them of the dangers that have infiltrated the Church of Christ. Churches can contact us to give presentations for fund-raisers for their own ministries and missionaries, and we do not charge a dime (i.e. FREE)
; we are happy to be servants if the Lord is willing. This is something that makes me sad sometimes because I know so many pastors and church-goers hate what we do in our ministry, even though I used to love speaking to large audiences, and if I ever get the chance to do it again, I would very much enjoy it.
[(Please do NOT contact us with a phone number and tell us to contact a pastor. We have had 0% success doing that over the years, and it does nothing to volunteer or help us--it only adds to our work load. We're willing to prepare the material and show up, so we need Christians to take the responsibility on themselves to organize it and make it happen.)]
--Send Us Your Public School or College Textbook--
For those of you who follow our articles and seminars, you know that we use public school textbooks in demonstrating current evolutionary teachings in the classrooms. If you have a public school, private school, or college science textbook, and would like to donate yours, you can send it to us at the P.O. Box address above so we can add more samples to our seminars and articles. (Please include information on where they are locally used.)
