Dear Friends and Supporting Churches,
We are happy to report that Ben Avery, is now the pastor of North Central Baptist Church in Roy, Utah. He received a 100% vote and the people are really pleased that he is now serving them. He is a graduate of Calvary Baptist Bible College, King, NC and has pastored in North Carolina. Certainly, this is an answer to the prayers of many. Thank each of you who have faithfully prayed for this church and please continue to pray for Ben, and his wife Rachel, and their son Carson, and daughter Ruby, and North Central Baptist Church.
Not my favorite topic, but health wise I am getting better. I had fusion surgery on 11-13-18, but on 12-12-18 I had to have a second surgery to because it became infected. The doctors put me on a very strong dual antibiotic due to the infection which caused me to go into renal failure. However, after four more days in the hospital, they got my kidney function back down to a satisfactory limit. After two more different antibiotics the infection cleared up and I no longer need the antibiotics. The spinal fusion is healing well and I go back to the surgeon on February 14 for a full check-up. My lung function remains constant now for the past twelve months with no further progression and I only need oxygen occasionally.
This illness has been a blessing from the Lord in slowing me down and giving me the time, I needed to work on my websites and books. So far, I have finished and published two more books. One is titled “Biblical Principles of Interpreting God’s Word” and is a thorough guide that teaches the proper and method of biblical interpretation of the Bible. Two colleges are using it as collateral reading for their Bib-Interpretation courses. The second book is a companion to the Biblical Principles book and is titled “Expository Bible Study Course – Lesson and Sermon Preparation.” These books are written to teach anyone with a desire to know God’s word how to interpret it for themselves and to teach others. They can be purchased from, http://www.theoldpathspublications.com/Pages/BookStore.htm and from Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble.com. The three other books I have published are: (1) “A Commentary on the Book of Jude”, (2) “Understanding the Biblical Doctrine of the Trinity (the Godhead)” (3) “Is Calvinism Biblical?” are available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I am currently working on a commentary on the Olivet Discourse, Matthew 24-25 which should be available in a couple of months.
I have also been working on the internet site of Bible-truth.org. It continues to be a great medium for reaching the lost around the world and teaching God’s word. It is uplifting to get email from those who are using the materials in their churches.
I am looking forward to very soon being able to get back to normal. It has been a long ordeal, but the Lord has graciously strengthened me and kept me encouraged. One verse in Psalms has been a blessing. “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.” (Psalm 34:8-9)
God’s richest blessing for each you for praying and in helping us with this ministry. There will be joy in heaven when we see the Lord and He rewards your faithfulness.
In Christ's name,
Cooper & Carolyn Abrams
