Our wives take care of the product tables, help set-up

and tear down, making sure that we change our socks every so often,

and patching our wounds from time to time :)

  Thank God for them.


  In 2014, "The Wasepi and Friends" started "A Home for the Elderly Ministry". It takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons or evenings. Also ministering at The St. Joe County Jail twice a month on Sunday afternoons. It's been such a blessing to be able to put a smile on someone's face and tell them The Gospel Story in song and testimony. Also helping with this ministry is Tim Rigterink, a Wasepian, Joe Schlabach, a former original Wasepian, Counsin Eli Schwartz, another former Wasepian, my brother-in-law Charles Pomeroy, and  David Wrench, and Grandsons Joseph Grove and Stephen Schwartz. Occasionally there are others that stop by to help. We are very thankful for the support we get from our wives and feel very privileged to be able to do what we do. We ask for Prayer support from all.



I've  been playing my Father's Dobro on occasion, doing some of the songs that He did thru 30 some years of ministy. Please continue to pray for the Wasepi's, past and present.

 In John 12:32 Jesus said:

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
