A MONTH IN NEW YORK

It is good to be on the road in the bus!  What makes it such a blessing is that means Stacie, Jack and Jase are with me.  We left home in Indiana the Friday before Memorial Day and headed to Holland, New York where I preached at Hunters Creek Bible Baptist Church (Pastor Willie O'Dell).  It worked out good on the timing because God answered a big prayer by finding my mother a new location to live.  We were able to get her moved in a couple of days to a far better place than she was at.

After the moving was all done we headed north to be at Lighthouse Baptist Church in North Tonawanda (Pastor Dave Costantino).  The Lord allowed me to preach in all three services and I believe we had a good day in church and definitely enjoyed the fellowship with these good folks.  The following Wednesday I preached for my good friend Jim Donath at Evangelical Baptist Church in Buffalo.  It was good to see Bro. Donath and his wife again.

We also stopped in to visit at Old Time Baptist Church in Hamburg and enjoyed catching up with the old home crowd!  I wasn't able to talk to everybody but it was a blessing to be in the service.

Starting on Father's Day, as we have every year since we have been on the road, we were at Cornerstone Bible Baptist Church in Sanborn (located ten miles east of Niagara Falls).  Pastor Jack Britt and I go back probably more than 25 years and we always have a great time during this meeting.

For some reason some of the pictures from New York have vanished into a cyber trash can somewhere and so I am missing pics of our first three stops (insert sad face icon here).  Below are some pics from the meeting at Cornerstone.  I am planning to post a picture gallery later.  At the end of June we headed to Ohio and that update will be coming shortly.

Great congregational singing!

May 2017 Prayer Letter

May, 2017

Dear Friends,

Greetings in the Master’s Holy Name!  I want to bring you all up to speed on what is going on with the Cobb’s.  As always we sincerely thank each and every one of you that prays for us.  We never take this lightly and are humbled that anyone would take the time to lift us up in prayer, no matter how often or intense it may be.

Since our last letter the Lord has kept me very busy and I am eternally grateful.  The meeting in Germany was unbelievable and it was a blessing to be able to go.  I am making plans to go back in 2018.  I have been to Maine, New Brunswick, Maryland and to  Nova Scotia (twice) as well as preach several times at our home church here in Indiana.  The Lord has really given us some good meetings—and I don’t say that “evangelistically speaking” or mean it to be just something that sounds good in a prayer letter.  God really helped some people and churches in big ways and we also saw a few souls trust Christ.  God is good! 

The last few days have been very busy getting the bus ready to hit the road.  At the writing of this letter, we will be leaving in two days to our next meetings which will be in New York.  I am excited that for the next five months Stacie and I will be together.  I will still have the occasional meeting to fly to, but for the most part we will be together. 

Our schedule thru the summer will take us to New York for a month, Ohio for a couple weeks, Maine for three weeks, Texas and then back to New York.  For more detailed dates and locations you can check out our website at www.EvangelistCraigCobb.com.  If you would like—you can sign up on the website to receive email updates when we post something.

I also want to thank you all for praying for my pastor—Kent Kirchmeyer—and his recovery from major back surgery.  He is doing well but has many months of adjusting ahead of him.  I appreciate people who have asked how he is doing.

May God bless you all as you continue to serve the King!

In His service,

Craig A. Cobb
