It’s exciting to see the article in our newspaper about Bart Ponders in his journey as a family evangelist. My name is Emie Blaylock and I know Bart Ponders personally and I am proud of his boldness to share God’s word. People like Mr. Ponders are really important to our community.
His new book “Good Things to Say” is very encouraging to see out on the market. It’s about time we got a book with positive things to say instead of negative. I can’t wait to get our copy.
Bart Ponders is a great speaker and evangelist, and he has spoken many times at our church, Welcome Hill Baptist Church. He has a great family as well, who all have a love for God, and that is what he wants to see for all other families.
I am proud of his determination in writing this book; especially about this topic. Go Bart!
