On Sunday August 12th due to a family reunion in Illinois we attended AM Services at Freedom Baptist Church in Bloomington, IL. For the evening service we drove to Beloit and visited at Faith Baptist Church for the evening service. The Stertzs were vacationing and Ron Hodges was speaking. Since they were without a pianist for the service Carole was able to provide assistance on the keyboard.
I had the privilege of attending Maranatha Baptist Bible College with Ron Hodges in the early days of the college. Since graduating Ron has worked as and electrician. However he has also used his Bible training for ministry, doing pulpit supply in area churches and speaking in mission conferences. He has recently had some health issues but is recovering and able to serve. If you need a special speaker or pulpit supply Brother Hodges can be reached through Faith Baptist Church in Beloit.
