Dear Friends,


We’ve been busy since the last letter. Since then I've preached in New Mexico, Ohio, Michigan, Colorado, California, Nevada, Florida, Arizona, Maryland, Idaho, Kansas, Indiana and Illinois. Most of these meetings have been Revival meetings and some have been teaching on the infallibility of the Bible and defending the King James Bible. Results have been good.


Since I have to be in Meridian, ID, (Boise) every Thursday to teach I have been doing a great deal more flying. I preach Sun-Tue. Then fly back on Wednesday to be sure to be there for Thursday classes. If I fly on Thursday and there’s some kind of flight delay I could miss classes.

I have been given my teaching assignments for the next two years. Next year (2017-18) I teach: Matthew, Minor Prophets, Manuscript Evidence, Problem Texts and Principles of Leadership. For 2018-19 I will be teaching: 1 & 2 Samuel, Romans and Preacher & His Problems. I really enjoy teaching and look forward to the classes.

Folks ask me "How do you stay in full-time evangelism AND teach in the Bible Institute AND write books?" I tell them I carefully divide my time between the three. I give 90% to evangelism, 80% to teaching and 30% to writing. It's been working so far!


In April Kathy had surgery on her left eye. Her sight improved from "blurry" to "fuzzy." On April 27, which was my birthday, I had an MRI. I am not planning on having another surgery on my neck but in the past two years it seems to have taken a step or two down and we want to be prepared if the need arises. This is why we so covet your prayers.

As always, we are ever in need of your prayers. Please continue to pray for us!

In Christ's Service,
Samuel C. Gipp
