    • Bro. Ballestero if you are even close to Alabama and have a cancellation (which with your kind of preaching is impossible. It’s tremendous.) I would absolutely like to have you come and preach for us. Maybe something can be worked out. I will schedule church any day of the week just to have you come. God bless you. Pastor Daniel J. Decker
      Guntersville, Alabama

      I listen to any sermon you preach I can find. Your sermons feed my soul. I know my church would enjoy them too.

  2. Hello Elder,

    As the new pastor of a UPC church in Las Vegas Nm (about an hour from Santa Fe) we are very anxious to have a revival to strengthen our small congregation. I was raised in Bro. Cavaness’ church and my uncles are Bros. Garry and Timothy Streeval. I’m not name dropping…ha!…but wanted to provide a point of reference for how I’ve heard you outreach. We would love to have you…unfortunately I only have the internet on my phone and it dormant allow me to see your calendar. Do you have a few week in the coming year? We are much in prayer. 6od bless you sir…take care.

    • Praise the Lord Bro. Rawlings,
      I thank you for visiting my blog and especially for the gracious invitation. I would be honored to come. Bro. Cavaness was an awesome man of God. His son, is as well.

      I was privileged to preach for Bro. Tim Streeval on night. I love him. Bro. Garry Streeval is one of my dearest friends. You have a great heritage it sounds like.

      The bad news is that I am pretty busy all next year, and I haven’t entered my schedule for 2013 yet. I may have a cancellation or too. At this point, I have 3 waiting to pick up one of those.

      Maybe this link will work on your phone.

      I have some open dates in 2013. I will update my calendar later this month so you can choose better.
      God bless you richly.

  3. Praise the Lord, Elder – I sincerely apologize – I didn’t realize the message would post here. I just now found it :). We would be happy with any time available (or any cancellation). If not, Lord willing we will see you “around” (I hope to be in Noblesville this April, if possible). Our church has been in prayer for your family and mother the last few services. God bless you and take care!

  5. Looking at your calendar I have but one question, When do you sleep? Seriously! Do you remember Jacob P. Nelson? He was a professor and mentor of mine. He had two sayings that seem to conflict one another, that is, until you have balance in your life.

    Only one life and soon it will pass and only what is done for Christ will last.

    If you do not go apart, you will come apart.

  6. Noticed that you had the perfect # of followers today on your fb account … I’ve sat under your preaching several times in Raleigh and I’m pretty sure I heard you at some of the Conferences at well … Because of The Times, East Coast Conference, and General Conference … appreciate all that you have done and are doing for the Kingdom Of God … mention my name in prayer if the Lord wills it … as I am separated from my wife and away from the church due to my failure to suffer in my time of Tribulations … God is good all the time but when those that serve him choose to hate without cause it’s a difficult thing to understand … I’m the one that loses in the end even though leaving seemed to be the only thing that seemed right at the time … “There is a way which seemeth right unto man” …. “But the ends thereof .are the ways of death” … apologies if I got that quote wrong … God bless you and yours Pastor Ballestero .. “BattleStereo” …

  7. Thanks to Bro.Ballestero and my vivid imagination, I can not get the image of “God’s diaper bag” out of my mind. Every time, I attempt to worry or pray about something, I see this huge diaper bag that is never forgotten and that never has anything left out of it. Not only does it make me smile but it is such a comfort to know that God is already prepared to fix anything that I can mess up and that He already has every thing I could possibly need and much more in His “diaper bag.” I can not wait for Bro. Buie to have Bro. Ballestero back next year and I am anxious to meet Sis. Ballestero as well.

  9. Thanks so much for a wonderful job preaching at the CENLA youth camp. “How to know if you’re drunk” was the best service I’ve ever been in in my 37 years; and I was raised on an Apostolic Pentecostal pew. God bless.
