Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Drasco Arkansas, is a little
band that was started as a mission by my Uncle Elder M.V.
Hammack. Bro. Hammack left the comfort of his home in Indiana
in the late 1980's where he pastored churches such as Faith MBC,
Kokomo MBC and Harmony MBC. He felt the burden to start the
mission in a little building in Pleasant Plains and it prospered.
After a few years and the sweet salvation of a number of souls the
mission felt the need to organize. They built (done by the
members of the church) a beautiful church building. The church
prospered greatly under Bro. Hammack as the pastor but, in the
early 2000's he was hit by a drunk driver and his health slowly
faded until he passed away in 2007. He was certainly a great
soldier for the Lord. The church has also began to fade away
dwindling now to only 6 or fewer attending on Sunday Mornings.
She has been without a pastor for almost 8 years. This little
church is situated in a great place to see so many lost souls saved
because the truth is not being preached in that part of Arkansas.
She is the only Old Time Missionary Baptist Church in that area. I
had the great privilege to preach there in October and the spirit
was there in a great way. The members that are there are so
hungry to see the church revived but, I fear without a pastor it
cannot. They have at times considered closing the doors but the
Lord just will not let them. Without "Hope" there is no hope for
that part of the state. I beg you to pray for the church! If you have
any questions please do not hesitate to message me on here for
more information. May God Bless each and everyone of you!

Over breakfast one morning, a woman said to her
husband, 'I bet you don't know what day this is?'
'Of course I do,' he answered indignantly, as he
slammed the door, and drove to his office.
At 11 o'clock, the doorbell rang. The wife
answered, and there at her front door was a UPS
driver, in his hand was a box containing 12 red
Later, at 2 pm there was another knock at the
door, this time it was a deluxe box of Belgian
Eventually the husband came home, tired after a
hard day's work. His wife greeted him by saying:

Three funerals on Friday:
I attended the funeral of James Newton, Sister Joyce Parker’s
brother, Friday afternoon and got to meet her family. One
speaker, a life long friend, shared some stories of Mr. Newton’s
life as well as , some humorous incidents, which reflected his
character and uprightness in his life. The 1st Baptist Church pastor
offered words of comfort and kindness. According to Sister Joyce,
several in her family are lost or, at least, haven’t given sufficient
testimony of an experiences of grace. Pray for this family.
Also on Friday, Brother Norman “Shorty” Patterson of Lafayette
was buried. I’ve known him for most of my ministry through
seeing him at revival and special services in a several county area.
He has two sons, Terry and Charlie, who both are Missionary
Baptist preachers, and two daughters, Deborah and Susie. Brother
Terry and Sister Deborah are quite like their dad, where as,
Brother Charlie and Sister Susie are big cut-ups. Brother Norman
would just smile and and shake his head when he’d watch either
one of them and me fuss and aggravate each other. I often asked
him how he fathered two such as them.
Thirdly, Brother Sammy Cornwell was laid to rest on Friday.
Though he was an educator, superintendent of Trousdale County
schools for eight years, and worked for the State Department of
I knew him for his dedication to teaching shape note gospel
music, leading singing, and compiling a series of six song books
entitled “Songs To Remember”, some of which Faith Church has.
Brother Cornwell was helpful to numbers of churches by lending
or giving them pianos and providing his song books to churches
that could not afford them. He was a dedicated friend to the last
Elder R. D. Brooks and helped him in starting three churches.
Brother Sammy gave and loaned money for the building of those
church buildings. He was somewhat eccentric, but a great help in
the advancement of congregational singing and the Lord’s cause
in this area.
