Prayer request


In a bit, we’re about to go into a meeting that among other things will probably determine the future of this blog. As Kaitlin stated earlier, we’re looking at the way we do some social media actions and in a bit we’re going to further discuss that. I know some of you have become regular readers of this blog. If you’d pray for us as we plan, I know we’d surely appreciate it. We want to serve as best we can.

On an almost completely different note, it seems some comments have been getting stuck in our moderate pile for a bit. I’m not exactly sure why, but I apologize for any delay you may have experienced in seeing your comment posted.

    There must be many more readers than bloggers here—otherwise, most days it’d seem like a ghost town!

    Is the BGCT on Facebook?—Ought to be where most Baptists are to be read/blogged, it seems.

  2. John Says:

    Hi David. I’m still here. Rather than commit to too much, we are looking at a variety of online options in terms of communications tools. It’s no big secret, but we are working through some of the details still.

  3. David Troublefield Says:

    Best wishes. It’d be great if maybe THOUSANDS of Texas Baptists and others read BGCT news weekly . . . daily.

    Not thousands but hundreds do read samurai. Post your hit count.

  5. John Says:

    Hi David. It’s been a while. I hope everything is going well.

    The hit count for this blog has been posted for quite a while now. I think we posted it from the beginning, but I may not be remembering that correctly. In case your curious, we re-evaluated this blog at about 100,000 hits and obviously we’re doing so again now. Our daily hits are down quite a bit from where they once were — I think we’re in the 90-100 range now. By re-tooling, we believe we can better engage Texas Baptists.

    Oh, sorry, the long archive list kind of obscures it. Passing the 100k mark is quite an accomplishment for a convention of 2500? churches.

  7. David Troublefield Says:

    5000+ ??

  8. John Says:

    Off the top of my head I don’t know the exact number of congregations affiliated with the convention, but it is more than 5,000.

    Please pray for my daughter Angela Ratzlaff. She just got through cancer surgery. It was level 3c ovarian cancer. They believe they got all the cancer. I am claiming victory! Please pray for Angela and her family Monte and their three children. Today is Angela’s birthday. She is 38. Also pray for Monte’s mother, Mary. She has late stage ovarian cancer. My name is LInda Frazier. I attend Greenacres Baptist Church in Tyler Texas. Thank-you for your prayers!

  10. David Troublefield Says:


    I have prayed, claiming that victory with you.

  11. John Says:

    Linda, thank you for sharing. Like David, I am praying for you and your family.
