John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone.

Beginning in 2008 the vision and bible school that God so graciously gave Wade Taylor beginning in 1968 came to an abrupt end, falling into the ground and dying.-

We now wait for God to raise up and bring forth His seed of promise in another, that the vision fail not.

Dear Friends,

This is the largest Banner that has ever been printed and mailed. Also, it is being sent to the smallest number, since we are continuing to delete the names of those we have not heard from within the last few years.

I continue to receive a large number of letters from those asking to be left on the Banner mailing list, and expressing their appreciation of the Banner. This encourages me very much. Along with this, I am feeling an increasing desire that the Banner be made available to more who are searching for spiritual truth and substance.

I have no way of knowing who these are. I am asking the Lord to somehow cause many of these to become aware of the Banner. I sincerely desire your help in enabling those who have made a full commitment of their lives to the Lord, to become aware of the Banner. We will send a copy of the current Banner to anyone for whom it is requested.

This issue of the Banner follows the theme of Ministry. It is not my intention to follow a particular theme, but rather to offer a "balanced diet." However, there was clear guidance in the preparation of this issue of the Banner centering around differing aspects of ministry.

We are all called to a ministry. At the very foundation of our salvation experience, our life style and attitudes are a witness of, or a "ministry" of the power of the Gospel to change lives. However, to all too many, their spiritual experience can be likened to salt, which seasons whatever it is put upon. The witness of their lives, and the expression of the Gospel through them, is only as a "flavoring" upon their own ways.

We are called to much more than this. This issue of the Banner is dedicated to being a ministry of helping you find your place of witness and function within the Body of Christ. It is my prayer that this will be accomplished.

We continue to be dependent upon your support of this ministry. Your prayer support and your gifts help to make all this possible. Thank you for doing your part. I am looking forward to hearing from you.


In His Love,

Wade E Taylor
