Doing What It Takes

When I was a pastor down in south Mississippi, I met an area pastor, Eddie Painter, down there that became a good friend of mine. We shared similar stories within the ministry, one of which we both grew up or lived in Amory, Mississippi. He and I would talk, complain, dream, and pray with each other. The dude loved fishing, mostly from a kayak.

Since those times both he and I have moved on to other areas to minister. I went north – he went south, to the Louisiana coast. He’s weathered hurricanes and culture change. Recently, there was a story written about him that ended up being picked up by Baptist Press, the reporting and news arm of the Southern Baptist Convention. You need to read this to see what Eddie’s up to now. The dude will do anything to get a chance to share Jesus with someone. Here’s the link to the story:


Go read it and see what ideas God gives you for your own community.

So, what do you think ?
