I recently received the two attachments from preachers in the Philippines.
While surfing through the net I came across a post of yours "The
Corruption of Money". Pretty scary! Before the brethren here decide
to send a one-time amount of financial support I have been asked to do
some investigating to determine whether or not the preachers are worthy.
I do not know Jim McDonald, Derek Chambers or Steve Wallace. (Not the
Steve Wallace from Sunnyside, WA but a different preacher) Are they conservative
preachers with a good reputation?
The Pilipino preachers (Edgar Samodal and Jonathan Sapitula) gave me their
names as references. Do you know anything about Edgar Samodal or Jonathan
Sapitula? Both claim to be non-institutional. It is a coincidence that
one writes about just having 19 baptisms
as a result of a Radio program and Lectureship.
When I asked the other one if he knew him he said he'd heard of him but
not met him. I told him about the 19 baptisms.
Then, by coincidence, he writes
and tells me that he just had 15!??? Maybe I'm overly suspicious, but
it sure sounds odd to me.
