“I appeal to you [I beg you] brothers and sisters…Do NOT be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…”Romans 12:1,2 Dear PBM Family,   My heart aches today as I attempt to take in the world (the chaos) around us.  The world (the enemy’s ever-efficient tool) is continually vying to transform us.  News […]

“…and so are saved.”

Dear PBM Family,   Often I write to you, our faithful supporters and Prayer warriors, about faith.  Faith has intrigued me even before I fell to my knees (acting on faith) and invited Jesus Christ into my heart.  Faith, and/or the lack thereof, seems to be that ever-raging battle within us.  We are quick to see faith, and/or (especially) […]

The Promised Land!

“Be strong and courageous…you will lead people to the promised land!” That verse is inscribed upon Luke Sullivan’s memorial that, barring COVID-19, would have been mounted in stone today at Paradise Landing in Guatemala. Today, June 27th marks one year since the tragic accident that claimed Luke’s life and forever changed the life of Bruce Van Fleet and his family, as well as PBM. We mourn with Luke’s family, holding them up in Prayer as we also celebrate his life. Praying continually as well for the Van Fleet family as they journey through their healing, and calling to “…lead people to the promised land.”

A Scrumptious Spiritual Sandwich!

“Beloved” PBM Family,    Sandwiches!  Yes…the salivating for a sandwich put this thought from our Lord into my heart!  I hope you are hungry because an incredible sandwich is already prepared for you this day!  Gluten-free options for bread are limited, and ofttimes not so tasty.  So, when we, as the Smith family, gave up […]

Action Bible Update April 2020

No matter where we live, we are all facing difficult times. As we navigate our lives during the COVID outbreak, we need to remember that God is still in control of it all. HE is still seated on HIS throne. HE sovereignly controls his creation, and HE is calling us to use this hardship as an opportunity to lift our voices and glorify HIM.
