What a blessing it was for me to gather together with co-laborers at the Coastline Baptist Church in Oceanside, California, this past week. My brother, Stephen, was the conference host and is the pastor of the Coastline Baptist Church. The Lord has done a great work there in Oceanside these past ten years, and it was a blessing to experience it firsthand.
For me personally, the conference was more than just a meeting. It was a time of refreshment, encouragement, and fellowship with the dozens of pastors from the region.
I was thrilled to see a number of men from our church attend this conference, and it was evident to me that the Lord was working in their hearts. This was a time of iron sharpening iron, and I thank the Lord for the special time we had with His men and around His Word.
“Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ:that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel.”
