When You Feel Out of Place

Posted by Philip A. Schipper on Tuesday, March 7, 2017,
Psalm 102:6,7 - I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.  I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.

Life has a way of bringing people to the place where they feel as if they cannot go on.  The writer here, is speaks as a patriot who is LAMENTING over the condition of his beloved homeland.  IT HAS AFFECTED HIM DEEPLY.  This is not some “little trial” or some “trivial problem”.  The condition of the nation of Israel has reduced him to an almost ...

When It Does Not Feel Like You Passed The Test...

Been musing on Genesis 22 after a bit of a rough stretch in our road.  I always read the narrative with the thought that Abraham descended the slope of Mount Moriah with his hands in the air and a shout of victory on his lips.  We know what he told the young men that accompanied Abraham and Isaac on their journey to Moriah.  He stated that both he and the lad would come again.  Clearly he believed that God could and indeed would raise Isaac if indeed he was required to take the life of his so...

Our Departure is at hand...

The words of the Apostle Paul have a very familiar ring to them as we prepare to leave for our Missions Trip to the Philippines.  We depart from Pensacola, Florida on November 13.  We have a full schedule in the Philippines and end our missions trip with a Evangelistic Crusade on the island of Guam on December 7.  Please pray for these meetings.  We still need some financial help with the cost of this trip.  If God touches you to help us, click on the "DONATE" button on our home page.  It has...

Observations from Amish country...

Posted by Philip A. Schipper on Monday, June 10, 2013,
We are in a revival in Nappanee, Indiana this week.  This area is home to many Amish families.  There is a fascination that American culture has with the simple and slow-paced lifestyle of the Amish.  From the well-kept farms, to the expert craftsmanship of their furniture, to the simple goodness of their food - those in the "rat race" of American culture seen curious about these people who, in spite of modern conveniences, choose to maintain their quaint and quiet lives.

The Amish are governe...

It is a beautiful day here in Central Michigan.  God has blessed us with some beautiful spring weather the past few days.  The grass is growing, flowers and trees are blooming, and a warm breeze is blowing.  We are currently in a meeting at the Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church in Ionia, Michigan.  Pastor Jeff Smith is doing a fine job of leading this established church.  We have had many visitors and the people have been very receptive to the messages that God has given.  On Tuesday night, a you...

Preparing to head to the pulpit soon at the King James Bible Conference at Victory Baptist Church in Hartland, Michigan.  Pastor Ryan Guenther is such a gracious host and each message has been a challenge from God's Word.  God's people are the greatest people in the world. It is a joy to be a part of God's family.

It is a rainy day here in the upper Midwest.  A good day to read and rest a bit.  Spending the day tweaking the website and preparing to speak at a Men's Meeting tonight.  We had a great meeting at Dunes Baptist Church and had 1 young lady come to Christ on Sunday.  Praise the Lord for the Gospel!   

I also broke thru the 360 barrier today - 359.6 lbs.  Haven't been there in 10 years or so.  Thanks for the prayer and encouragement.

Greetings from Northwest Indiana!  We are in a revival meeting this week at Dunes Baptist Church in Michigan City, IN.  The church was packed last night and it was good to see my family and many friends from the area.  Sam Geckler is the pastor of this church that he planted here over 25 years ago.  Not far from the shores of Lake Michigan, Dunes Baptist Church is a lighthouse for the Gospel of Christ .  Please pray for the presence of God to be experienced in these days.  

The events of the p...
