The psalmist David declared “Bless the Lord oh my soul, and all that is within me bless His Holy name. Bless the Lord, oh my soul, and forget not all His benefits.” He goes on to describe and declare some of the most precious of the benefits of the believer who is redeemed, saved, settled, and secure in the knowledge of the Holy One living and abiding in them. There are some wonderful benefits indeed in the Living Savior abiding in my life as if He had no where else He wanted to be! For all of us who have that knowledge it is not a hard matter to be truly thankful, and be thrilled with this season of the year when we celebrate the incarnation of the WORD from heaven. When GOD was manifest in the flesh, that all who would believe upon His name could receive Him as their own personal Lord and Savior, inherit everlasting life and an eternal home in heaven! That’s just the greatest Christmas present ever possible! There is nothing or no one to compare with JESUS! And thank God HE never changes. He has no flaws, no faults, no failures!
But we, on the other hand, have lots of changes. Some for the better. We have had a great change in our family that we are so glad for and that is our new grand-daughter Brinley Michaela Holcomb. She was born May 27th, and is truly delightful. Thank you so much for the prayers in her behalf when she was so sick. Thank God for the benefit of healing HE placed upon her. She is wonderful! Nathan, Brandy, and Jackson all seem to be doing very well. Niccole is a teacher’s assistant in one of our elementary schools and Aubrey is in the third grade! WOW! Time is moving swiftly! Praise the Lord for His goodness to us and our family!
Another change that most of you know about by now is the fact that I left the Inspirations on October 1st. The Lord made it plain to me that my season there was over, and that I needed to get in line with His good will proclaiming the Gospel in WORD and in song. Though there have been several who have contacted us to invite us to their church or gathering place, we do need anyone who is interested in us coming to their particular place or area to do so soon so that we can get the date book as full as possible for the coming year. I am convinced that the greatest mission field in the world is right here in the United States right now. The changes that have been taking place in this country for several years now have not been for the better. In fact things are waxing
true and living God to do whatever the people desire to do in their own
carnal being which is an enemy of God. Please help us to get the word out that we are available to come and share the good news of salvation.
We also want to tell you something that we are excited about.
Song Garden Music Group contacted me a couple of days after I resigned and offered me the opportunity to record a new solo project! I was surprised, but grateful. Lord willing it will be available to order from us by the middle of January. Please, remember any product that you order directly from us goes to help pay our TV ministry bills.
May the Good Lord bless you and yours during this season. Thank you for everything you have done to help us. We love you.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
Bro. Mike and Bavaria Holcomb
Psalm 37:4 - (Dec. 16, 2013)
Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ! Hope this finds you all wonderfully and greatly blessed during this most precious season of Thanksgiving and Christmas!!! The weather has definitely changed, as it is supposed to do this time of year, and brought with it some beautiful and exciting changes that make impacts upon all our lives. The most celebrated change that we should be looking for is that surely JESUS is coming very soon! All indicators that we know about, or should be concerned about, tell us to “look up, for your redemption draweth nigh.” Therefore it’s time to be excited about leaving with Christ, grateful for the blessings HE has brought our way and the benefits we have in Him who loved us and gave Himself for us! Yes change, even great change is definitely in the air. And, speaking of change, there have been some great changes in our lives this year. First, the 27th of May, a beautiful new grand-daughter, named Brinley Michaela Holcomb was born. Then, just 9 days later she was put into Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital with a rare form of bacterial meningitis. She was treated there for 17 days, then allowed to go home with her Mom and Dad to finish her treatments of antibiotics. By a miracle of the Good Lord she has been given a clean bill of health, to which we say PRAISE THE LORD! She is living proof that our Lord still does all things well. Then, after much prayer, deliberation, and meditation it became apparent to me that my season with the Inspirations had come to an end. And so, on October 1st, I left the only full time job I’ve ever known, (41 years) and became a more than full time evangelist. I leave the group with regret, disappointments and some hurt, yet knowing that the Good Lord has blessed us there far more than we ever could deserve. HE has certainly been very good to us all these years and we are appreciative of it. We have been very busy so far, travelling with Nana Boo, preaching the Gospel in several places. We are currently trying to get next year lined up with bookings that will keep us very busy telling the wondrous story of His grace and glory. Now it just might be possible that we could come to your church to declare the grand old Gospel in word and song. Pray about that, talk with your pastor and have him to pray about it as well. We definitely need your prayers and your support more than ever before. Thanks to some very special friends at Song Garden Music Group I have the opportunity to record a solo project that should be available sometime in January. It will have some of the very best songs I’ve ever had the privilege to sing on it, and I’m very excited about it. It is of the Lords doing and bidding and you cannot improve on what He does. The great I AM still amazes me with His care, and all that HE does to see to our well being.
We trust you will all be wondrously blessed, and that all of us will take the opportunity to be thankful, grateful and acknowledging of the benefits of our dear Lord. HE is worthy of ALL Praise and Honor and Glory! BLESS HIS NAME! We love you very much. (11-12-2013)

GOOD MORNING, MIKE DID GO BACK TO
THE DOCTOR LAST TUESDAY (5-3-11). DR. MORENO LOOKED IN HIS
THROAT WITH A MIRROR AND SAT BACK AND SAID "PREACHER, I DON'T
SEE NOTHIN". MIKE AND I BOTH LOOKED AT EACH OTHER AND MIKE SAID
"DOC, YOU KNOW IT WAS ON THE LEFT SIDE IN THE BACK/" HE THEN
DEADENED HIS NOSE AND THROAT AND USED THE SCOPE AFTER A COUPLE
OF MINUTES OF LOOKING AND HAVING MIKE MAKE SOUNDS HE SAT BACK
AND SAID "PREACHER, IF ALL MY PATIENT'S THROATS LOOKED LIKE
YOURS I WOULD BE BROKE AND OUT OF BUSINESS" GOD IS GOOD!!! HE
WENT BACK TO SING ON THURSDAY, BUT STILL GOING SLOW WITH
PREACHING DATES BECAUSE HIS VOICE IS WEAK AFTER NOT PREACHING
MUCH USE SINCE MARCH. NOT SURE WHY GOD SAW FIT TO SIT HIM AT
HOME FOR A LITTLE WHILE NOR WHY HE CHOSEN TO HEAL HIM QUICKLY
ONLY BUT FOR HIS HONOR AND GLORY. THANK YOU FOR PRAYING. WE
TRULY HAVE SEEN THE HAND OF GOD WORK AGAIN IN OUR FAMILY!! MAY
GOD BLESS YOU! WE LOVE YOU

MIKE HAS BEEN OFF THE ROAD A TOTAL OF ABOUT 3 WEEKS FROM SINGING
WITH THE QUARTET AND HAD TO CANCEL 2 FULL MONTHS OF REVIVAL
MEETINGS AND SUNDAY SERVICES BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN TOLD HE HAS A
SPOT ON HIS VOCAL CORD THAT IS CAUSING HIM TO GET HOARSE AND
HAVE TROUBLE SINGING AND TALKING. THE DOCTOR BELIEVES IT
HAPPENED WHEN HE HAD PNEUMONIA IN NOV/DEC AND ALL THE COUGHING
HE DID. HE HAD VIRTUALLY NO VOICE THE FIRST BIT, BUT WE GO BACK
TO THE DOCTOR THIS TUESDAY TO SEE IF IT HAS HEALED ANY OR WHAT
THE NEXT STEPS WILL BE. PLEASE, PRAY FOR HEALING OR FOR
GUIDANCE FROM THE LORD WITH THIS DOCTOR'S VISIT. THANK YOU VERY
Greetings in the name
above all others, the Preeminate, Powerful, and Precious name of
Jesus Christ in whom we live, move, and have our being.
Oh how ecstatic all of us should be to have the opportunity to
celebrate His coming to this earth to walk, talk, heal, and
reveal Himself as He is, the Son of the Living God. The Apostle
John declared that in Jesus was LIFE, and that life was the
LIGHT of men. In order to call us out of the darkness into His
marvelous light, He came to seek and to save that which was
lost. THE TRUTH came unto His own. We understand that the Lamb
of God came unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. His
Father, the Majesty Most High, had chosen a young virgin girl by
the name of Mary, a descendent of Abraham, to bare His Son unto
the world fulfilling all the prophecies spoken of this child
that was to be given as the only Saviour. This Truth was also
brought forth unto His own prized creation made in His own image
so that whosoever would believe and trust in Him calling upon
His name would have a Redeemer. A terrible TRAGEDY has occurred
that the majority of people, especially in the last century,
have not received Him. Millions have died and are dying lost and
eternally doomed in torments because they refuse to accept and
receive Gods greatest gift. Oh but thank God for all of us who
have received Him, proclaiming Him as Lord of our lives in
power, becoming Sons and Daughters, children of the Great I Am
by grace through faith! What TRIUMPH we enjoy over death, hell,
and the grave! What Victory we have in our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ! Even though there is an ever increasing darkness
being perpetuated in this world we still have the Light of Life
forevermore living and lighting the way unto that land of
perfect day. PRAISE GOD and the LAMB forever for this glorious
truth that has triumphed in victory for all who will receive it!
There are only a few days left in this year of 2008. Job said
that a man born of a woman was of few days and full of trouble.
He knew what he was saying to be right. Right now there are many
of Gods children really longing for Jesus to come and take us
with Him. We are included in that number. Spending Christmas
with Jesus sounds wonderful doesn't it! If He does not come
before Christmas, let's all just draw nigh unto Him with our
hearts full of praise thanking Him for the glorious hope we have
in Him! He will come, and right on time! The signs of His coming
are all around us. So, look up! Our redemption draweth nigh.
We bless the Good Lord for all of you and the blessing you have
been to us and this ministry. Please pray for strength and
enablement for us and our family to be pleasing unto the Lord.
We love and appreciate each of you, and are praying for a double
portion of Gods grace and power to be upon us all.
LOVE TO ALL ,
BRO. MIKE AND BAVARIA
