1,000,000 Visitors To The Ballestero Blog!


I extend humble and grateful thanks to all of you for your readership. I am amazed that 364,536 readers from 194 countries (every country in the world, except one) have visited my blog.

My dear sister, Nila Marxer has been my tireless proofreader and editor. I will be forever indebted to her. Thank you, my dear!

As some of you might guess, these Blogs have generated much interest:

  • I Don’t Like Facial Hair On Pentecostal Men
  • They’re Everywhere (Knees showing in church)
  • Why My English Teacher Wanted To Be Baptized In Jesus Name
  • The Pentecostals At The Church Of Christ Funeral

I am personally criticized, cursed and trashed almost daily, mainly by worldly seeking Pentecostals who have forsaken the old paths. No matter what their criticism is of the holiness lifestyle, I refuse to change.

I remain as committed as ever to the Apostolic Doctrine.

  • Loving the Acts 2:38 plan of Salvation,
  • Seeking to live holy in an unholy world.
  • Loving the old paths.
  • Attempting to encourage and uplift the body of Christ.
  • Reaching for every lost soul I can.

Thank You Again!

Yours In His Service,

Martyn J. Ballestero Sr.



Thanks A Million

  1. Congratulations on this mile marker of 1,000,000 readers on your blogs. I have had the privilege of reading many of them & it’s always a blessing to me.
    Its refreshing to know that blogs of this quality & content are on the net a mist all the negativity and falsehood.

  2. I am thrilled that you have reached this huge milestone! Congratulations!
    In a world of compromise, change, worldliness, I am sincerely grateful for your steady leadership, solid Biblical teaching, love of holiness and a passion for Truth. Many others would have given up because of the negative pressure and the threats by so called ‘Christians’, and but you are consistent in your blogs and unwavering in the Gospel. I hope that other young ministers will recognize this and follow your example in these changing times.
    God bless you!

  5. Elder Ballestero this means that not everybody is going the way of the world and some people like Truth and love men that will preach it without fear or favor. I love you Elder. That is what am talking about.
