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

I wish to thank each one of you who helped to defray the indebtedness on our printing press which, I am very pleased to say, is completely paid for. How grateful I am that this heavy, on-going burden has been lifted.

In our earlier years, five sheets of paper (20 pages) made up the Banner. We gradually increased this until we attempted to use nine sheets of paper (36Banner pages). However, the thickness was beyond the capacity of our addressing machine and it was damaged; so we reverted back to either seven or eight sheets of paper.

In several issues of the Banner, articles which I felt should have been included, were set aside due to this problem. Recently, the machine that addresses the Banner was modified to handle additional pages. Hopefully this will temporarily meet the need for a larger Banner; but I am prayerfully trusting for the means to purchase a new addressing machine that will comfortably address the size needed for each issue of the Banner.

At this present time, there is an evident stirring deep within the spirits of many. These are beginning to search out a means to satisfy their newly discovered spiritual hunger. A resultant blessing is that we are experiencing one of the best Bible School years ever. The Lord is moving manifestly in our midst to meet this hunger, and all of us are being challenged and changed as never before.

Within the Church there are many who are content with the fact that their "sacrifice" has been properly laid out before the Lord, but they are not seeking the "fire" which is to consume it. Activities and forms of substitutionary liturgy are being created instead to fill the void that our Lord desires to fill with Himself. He is seeking to break in upon His Church and consume all that does not originate in Him and move toward His purpose.

It is my prayerful desire that the Banner increasingly become a voice to call our attention to this vital lack of Holy Spirit "fire," and stir us to seek His manifest presence moving in our midst. I trust the articles in this issue of the Banner will feed the increasing spiritual hunger that you are experiencing.

Your continued interest and support is urgently needed, and very much appreciated. Thank you, each one of you who support this ministry. Much time and prayer goes into the preparation of each issue of the Banner that it be true to the written Word of God and an investment in your spiritual development. Again, thank you.


In His Love,

Wade E Taylor
