Singing at Carr's Chapel Church of God, Cookeville, TN
"Spirit and Truth Ministries had begun to purchase some musical
equipment and instruments for the purpose of promoting Christ through
gospel music. On Saturday, July 18, my mother, Ruby Lea (the other
officer of the corporation) and I went to a singing
service held at Carr's Chapel Church of God. This event was
significant for Spirit and Truth Ministries because after the
service, Ruby expressed a strong desire to practice more songs and
to be prepared to sing more frequently. The gospel music outreach
would be a primary activity of Spirit and Truth Ministries for the
next decade and beyond."
"Jesus Is Here"
"During the Spring and Summer months of 1992, Spirit and Truth
Ministries produced a tract for distribution at the campus of
Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville where I was a student.
The purpose of this tract was to inform new students about Christian
student organizations on campus and to encourage students to attend one
of the local area churches while they attended college. I met
individually with the leaders of each of the Christian student
organizations in existence at that time to speak with them about
what we planned to do.
Since it appeared that producing tracts was going to become a regular
activity of Spirit and Truth Ministries, the ministry purchased a
computer and the software needed to design the tract. In August, we
obtained the services of a local print shop to produce a large number
of copies, and these were distributed at the beginning of the Fall
