New adventure into FaceBook live

Tonight at 7:00 P.M.

Join us on Facebook Live
tonight at 7:00 PM CST


For the last couple of weeks, we’ve been trying something new!  I am now doing a regular live broadcast on Facebook. We’re going to do it again tonight around 7:00 p.m.

If you have a Facebook account,  just click on this link and you will hear some music to encourage you and build your faith. You can watch us on your computer or on your mobile device, wherever you are.

If you don’t have Facebook, we’ll upload a replay of it later on our YouTube Channel.

Tonight I will be focusing on the faith of one of our giants who just went home to Jesus. Billy Graham was indeed one of God’s special gifts to the church. I’m planning on singing songs like, “I’ll Fly Away, “Higher Ground”, “How Great Thou Art”, and other hymns of faith.

Billy once said, “Some day you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.”

One of the hallmarks of Billy Graham’s ministry over the years was that he enthusiastically embraced new technologies to spread the Good News of God’s love. He used radio, TV, Crusades, and even Film to reach as many people as possible.

That’s why I’m so excited about the possibilities of these Live videos. We have the potential to reach many people who might never see us in a local church. I believe that many will hear an encouraging message right when they need it through this medium. But We need your help to make these successful.

  1. Watch us Live!
  2. Share our Live feed with your Facebook friends!
  3. Pray for a large audience to join us each week!

2017 – A Year that Changed Me

These last 12 months or so have changed me. I’m not the same person I was at this time last year. Sometimes that’s an intentional goal, a quest for personal improvement, but my changes have come at the hand of circumstances beyond my control. Let me explain.

My mother went to be in God’s presence forever in August of last year. Then just 3 months later, I became an orphan at age 65 when my father joined her.

In the midst of dealing with the reality of losing both my parents in such a short time, I had a death-defying heart incident just days after my 45th wedding anniversary. Felicia was almost widowed that night.

So how was I changed after witnessing my parents’ death and facing my own?

Simply, I am convinced that every day I’ve lived since January 24, 2017, is bonus time.

After that experience, I wondered what my future would be. Would it be possible to continue traveling? Would I have the strength and stamina needed to do this demanding work? Would I have to lay down this ministry that I have been so blessed with?

God has truly been faithful, as I only had to cancel one meeting after my hospitalization. I did not book as heavily as I normally would have, but Felicia and I stepped out in faith and put one foot in front of the other. We feel we were called to this ministry, and we were determined not to let it go without a fight.

Our ministry travels in the last ten months took us to nineteen churches in nine states, including Texas, New Mexico, West Virginia, Minnesota, North Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Missouri.

It seemed that the excitement in the revivals increased in the months after my V-tach. God continued to bless this ministry with results.

Everywhere we’ve traveled, the attendance has been great and the altar response strong. My awareness that I have been given a life-extension to do ministry is making a real difference.

We continue to hear great reports from pastors who are busy after the revivals baptizing new Christians and welcoming new members into their churches.

Just last week, this pastor baptized 5 young people who responded to God’s message of love and redemption at one of our events.

Felicia and I are so grateful for you, the faithful friends of this ministry who have prayed for us and given generously to make it possible for us to continue answering God’s call.

Those gifts have made it possible for many to respond to the message of God’s mercy, grace, and forgiveness.

We have been given a deep burden to preach a message of a God who loves us and calls us to faithfully follow Him. It’s a more urgent message now than ever before.

Our world is staggering in darkness. Children and grandchildren have lost their way. Many are caught in prisons of sexual brokenness and terrible addictions to drugs and alcohol.

But our message is unchanged. Jesus stands ready to heal, deliver, and save!

As we close out 2017 strong, you can help in these ways:

• Pray for our ministry. We can only go where we’re invited. Pray for more opportunities to bring God’s message of freedom to more people and more towns.

• Give generously. December and January are typically months where we have no bookings. Can you help offset the financial cost of that gap?

• Become a regular monthly donor. These automatic gifts help us save fundraising costs and let us know that provision will be there each month. Church missions budgets and Sunday School class sponsorships are other ways you can support us.

• If it’s been a while since we’ve been in your church, have your pastor call and invite us back. We’d love to see you again! You can reach me directly at (817) 975-5524.

Felicia and I are so blessed by your friendship and are so encouraged by knowing you believe in this ministry. We’re looking forward to 2018 and seeing God transform homes and churches wherever He leads us.

P.S. Your generous year-ending gift will make a huge difference right now when churches don’t book outside events. Giving securely online by clicking here will ensure we have your gift for the 2017 tax year.

The Lord is my Shepherd

We follow His lead - a short update on Wesley's health

(This is a picture of an EKG showing a heart in trouble.  Felicia declares that this was mild compared to the dramatic fluctuations that were on  my EKG. She said it looked like the wild scribbling of a 2 year-old!)

January 24, 2017 is a day I will never forget.  Every day I live since that day can be considered bonus.  When I was growing up in south Louisiana, the term we used to describe that kind of bonus was “Lagniappe.”  That’s an old Cajun expression that means “a little extra.”  That’s what God has given me.   The quick trip through the streets of Lubbock, TX, to the ER at Covenant Medical Center and the events of the next few days are a blur in my mind.  I came within minutes of meeting my Maker, but by God’s mercy, I am still here for “a little extra” time and doing very well.  Hallelujah!

With a few months to reflect I have identified some important things I learned.

  1.  Our faith makes a difference.  Amid the swirl of activity around me in the trauma room and the obvious concern of my caretakers as they hooked me up to the paddles, I was at peace.  Looking mortality square in the eyes, there was no fear.  I knew

He is risen! He is risen indeed!

This changes everything


This is a song I wrote to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  It is a rewrite of the Charles Wesley hymn of the same title from the “Amazing Love” CD we released in 2006.  Take a few minutes to listen and join in the HALLELUJAH’S.  He has defeated death and the grave.  This changes everything.


Good Friday meditation

He gave His all for us.





On this Good Friday, as we contemplate who Christ is an all He’s done for us, take a moment to listen to this song.  It is a rewrite of Charles Wesley’s “And Can it Be”  entitled “Amazing Love” from the album we did in 2006 of the same name.  Let these words minister to your soul today.


Get Your Motor Running

All the power you need to succeed

As a new year begins, I’m often full of energy and willpower to change and improve my life. This year I will lose those pounds, make time for relationships, draw nearer to God. But without fail, that energy and optimism all but disappear when resistance inevitably kicks in. It reminds me of a time years ago when, as a young pastor, I had an invitation to go fishing with my neighbor.

I hadn’t done much fishing in my life, but I thought it would be a great opportunity to get to know him better.  So we loaded the boat on a trailer and hooked up to his pickup. The sun was shining and it looked to be an awesome day to be on the water.

We launched the small fishing boat onto the Ouachita River, he pulled a cord on the small motor and it sputtered into life. We headed downstream on the rain-swelled river at a pretty good clip.   In short order we arrived at his favorite fishing spot and spent a good deal of time there.  As I recall, he caught quite a few good sized Bream and I drowned a lot of worms.

When we had about as much fun as we could muster, it was time to head back to the truck.  My friend pulled the rope and the engine once again hummed into life.  However,
