We are cutting back on a few things since we are not on the road as much these days. We are still ministering when invited and still doing our radio program on WLSH AM 1410 Lansford PA. This will be our 6th year coming up.
It you are listening, please let us know, it would be great to hear from folks, drop us a note here on facebook!! David & Karen
[10/31/15] I need to post that our dear friend Nelda Jean Bregate has gone home to be with the Lord. Thank you to those who prayed for her these many months since we sent out the message for folks to keep her in prayer. She fought a good fight but the Lord saw to it to take her on home. She will be greatly missed by her loved ones . So please pray for them. God Bless you for your faithfulness to the prayer closet on behalf of those in need.

Recording today for our upcoming programs on WLSH 1410AM every Sunday morning at 8am
We are in our 5th year I believe it is and it is such an interesting job to learn about all the songs and hymns we use on the program. We do hope folks enjoy the information as much as I do finding it for each program.
It has come to the place where Ann, our bookkeeper is teaching me how to handle the bookkeeping. What a task for her!!!! But she says I am doing very good HaHa!! She is a kind person.
There are many things to learn but the most important is that it all has to turn our correctly and the numbers must match up. I am now finally getting my personal bank book to balance and of course the Business Bank statement balances perfectly!!.
it is great learning this because I guess I always hurried too much when doing our own bookkeeping thru the years and made the mistakes. I do see that a quiet time makes a difference in working with figures, especially those being sent in to the IRS, etc.
[09/27/15] check out Karen Brickley on facebook if we are not up to date on this site. God Bless you for checking in on us. We are still on the move, but just slower!!!haha.
[08/31/15] Got back Saturday from the funeral of our friend Ed Ellen. It was a time of honoring his life and his being a facilitator in the work of the Lord. There is no telling how many folks he helped in day to day living and how many ministries he contributed to througtout his life since he became a Christian. So many testimonies of who Ed was in his own quiet way. As my Dad used to say, not letting the left hand know what the right hand is doing. Just between him and the Lord. And life goes on for all of us who remain to do what the Lord has called us to do and given us the wisdom how to run our own race for his honor and glory.
We got some sad news this week. A very dear friend of ours for over 35 years died in a car accident on Wednesday. He was a great supporter of our ministry. We met him thru Rev. Carl Campbell who recommended him to invest in our ministry. The first thing he did was put brand new tires on our ministry vehicle, which was a converted Greyhound bus that was a beautiful motor coach. Some of you will remember our chandelier in the dining area. He also promised us the day he married Carol that he would support us monthly in ministry the rest of his life. We thank him and Pastor Campbell and especially our Lord for his love, support in more ways than financially, his friendship and his gracious manner to always invite us to come visit. He is already greatly missed, by us and so many others he, facilitated, as he would say.
He loved the work of the Lord and Pastor Campbell always said when he spoke of him. He was the most hungry man for God and His Word that he had ever met. He loved and served the Lord to his dying day. His name was Julius "Ed" Ellen!
[07/08/15] Saturday night we will be sharing a couple of songs at St. Pauls Lutheran Church in Albrightsville, PA off of 534 on N. Old Stage Rd. I was talking with my cousin Shirley and she asked us to sing . So we of course said "Sure, we'll sing." It sounds like it will a nice concert. A group is coming from Phila and others will also be participating. If you can join us please do!! It will be 6-9 Sat. evening the 11th.
We have been celebrating our 50th anniversary of full time evangelism. Quite a wonderful life it has been. Carrying the gospel message throughout USA into Canada and overseas to many countries where we worked with the great missionary friends we have had in these years. Also, celebrated David's Birthday this week on the 17th. Went to a new restaurant for us, here in the area, Acamia's on 248, I believe is the name of it. Fantastic food, fresh bread, great desserts and wonderful coffee. We had a great time again with our friends Dale and Connie.
Today we are working on the program for Sunday's broadcast at 8am on WLSH AM here in the Lansford area.
We do have some prayer requests for you who are prayer warrior's. Nelda Jean....total body recovery from an illness that took her to death's door. Pastor Lillian's leg, full of pain, can't walk without assistance, Pastor Peggy, fell and hit her head, has blindness in one eye and is not healed yet, also Sue for strength to withstand personal attacks mentally from family and needs a healing of her body also. Pray for Charles who only has a few months to live, due to cancer. Lets pray folks for some good reports back on these folks. They do depend on us when we say we will pray .
It was quite a nice surprise to go to the door today and the florist delivered a lovely bouquet of roses to us to celebrate our 50th anniversary of full time evangelism which occurred on June 14th.
It doesn't seem that long ago!! but it certainly has been all these years. So many wonderful memories of the work of the Lord we have participated in these many years.
Connie and Dale were so thoughtful to remember! Thanks you two!!
It has been an age since we have written to you folks who check in on us. Well, life is going on and we are busy again being back up north working on our radio programs for WLSH 1410 AM here in the local area. We have been visiting some of the churches here in the Jim Thorpe area on Sundays and it has been enjoyable to see folks again and to worship together.
After having a cold and sickly winter in Myrtle Beach this year it is great to be back on our feet and feeling like ourselves again!!!
It has been wonderful to wake up and want to get up in the morning these past few months.
I have a prayer request for those who will pray. A dear friend of ours who lives in California is in CCU in UCLA Hospital and we are praying for her total healing. She is moving forward physically but still very ill at this time. Her Name is Nelda and we are asking for all who will to intercede for her healing.
We are also praying for direction in our lives in the days ahead . Where the Lord will use us we will be open to His leading.
[01/11/15] Just wondering if the site on facebook with the blank briefcase is by the same person who tried to take my regular facebook. This site is our page/ not the one with the briefcase. I have wondered where the briefcase site came from, I certainly didn't put it up there. Just wanted to clarify this site. And David and I are still singing and preaching when invited so we have not officially retired as of yet!!' Also it was not me either that changed this photo at the top. The one we put up is the in the small box to the left of the larger photo.

Well, All programs are ready for the radio It has been a joy to work on them and have them ready thru May '15. Now it is time to concentrate on packing up to leave for Myrtle beach, next weekend. Lots to do but looking forward to getting back with our MB friends and churches there. There will be concerts to attend and decorating to do to celebrate our Lord's birth. It will be different of course with no concerts of our own this year, but then this is our 50th year, Hopefully there will be a few meetings this year. It seems radio is our ministry these days but not a financial income from it. So we hope we can stay on at least another year or so. We will see what opens up. Got more information about some new stations on a Christian Network. We plan to persue this road and see what all is involved. Cost is low on this last promotion so we will see,
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving holiday. We had a quiet one as usual and went out to dinner at a local restaurant here in Jim Thorpe with our bookkeeper Ann. Food was great and we laughed a lot!!. God Bless!!
Greetings, We will be singing on Sunday Morning at the Meed's United Methodist Church in Nesquehoning, PA Looking forward to the opportunity to share our music Tomorrow
two weeks ago we had a great time in the Lord at Crossroads Assembly of God in Newberg, NY with Pastor Manny. Saw many in the alter and the presence of the Lord was in the house. The service was a Sunday Morning and we were in the altar until 2:30pm with folks receiving from the Lord. It was a wonderful to be there and share the gospel message in sermon and song! God is Good and we trust Him with our lives day by day.
Praying for folks to support our radio program so we can expand to other stations that have invited us to come aboard. however, without having a full schedule of services, it has become necessary to find sponsors if we will be expanding our area. Pray with us to guide in this endeavor.
Today our friend Jack Belin is getting married in Hot Springs, Ak and we found out thru facebook that he is friends with Bill and Betty Anderson, a great couple we have known and loved in our revival meetings. They were pastoring in Okla. City when we met them and they took us under their wing in the early years of our ministry and treated us so kindly. Great folks God had us meet thru our years in so many places.
Celebrating Karen's Birthday this weekend. Had a lovely dinner at Red Lobster and went to a concert and heard the National Christian Choir out of Washington, DC. then out to the local, Bowmanstown Diner for Coffee and pie!! with dear friends. And I woke up on Sunday and didn't feel a day older....ha ha !!
Now it is b
ack to radio programming and enjoying every minute!! If you would like to underwrite a month or more of programming please let us know. We have an opportunity to reach out to some cities through another radio group. Praying these doors will open for us.
Just got word this morning that a very dear friend of ours, Sarah Bishop went home to be with the Lord yesterday morning. So sad to us to lose her from this world but she is happy with the Lord and those who have gone on before her. Can't help but miss her even though we did not talk a lot on the phone, but when we did or stopped by to see her and Carl,Sr. and Paul at the house in Punxy it was like we had only seen each other yesterday. Janie would always have us up for dinner or send in homemade coconut cake! God has a way of giving us friends that mean so much to us. Yes, we and they grow older and seem closer with the years, even though we are more apart. We used to go to Punxy First Assembly about every year for many years for revivals. Carl and Sarah became our dear friends along with their family. They treated us like family all the time and we always stayed with them and for years they moved out of their beautiful bedroom suite for us, the evangelists of the revival. So much love and kindness they showed us., as so many of our ministry friends have done thru the years. And I should say we met these folks thru the ministry but they were certainly our dear friends and family. We will miss you Sarah but we do know you will not miss us. It will be our privilege to sing at your funeral on Friday, sharing
"Heaven's Sounding Sweeter All the Time"
Please pray for the Bishop family in the days ahead.Sarah was 85.
I remember when this family met us in Tampa Fla at Brother Matheny's church, Hillsborough Assembly of God. They wouldn't let Pastor Sproull, their pastor in Punxy off the telephone that day, until he said he would have the Brickley's for a meeting at their church. They had visited the church where we were in revival on that Sunday. So many great years of wonderful friends and memories.
