From a RETIRED PASTOR in KENTUCKY:
I am nearly 73 years old. If I did not have some stability
in Calvinistic teaching, I honestly believe I would be making
claims of levitation like the Pentecostal. My soul soars into
new dimensions as I listen to these tapes by Brother Griswold!
There is nothing in this area that feeds men's souls. To hear
Brother Griswold speak of Rolfe Barnard and others brings
back pleasant memories.
These are the greatest tapes for teaching I believe I have
ever heard. The historical and theological development of
the subject discussed are amazing. I want my children and
grandchildren to keep them for future generations. Enclosed
is a small token for postage. Yours in Christ “ The
Lord bless thee and keep thee!
From a CHRISTIAN in MISSISSIPPI:
Thank you!! The tapes are wonderful!! All my friends have
seemed excited about receiving them also. You are so good
to get them out so soon. I have decided that Ferrell Griswold
has become my very own Pastor to teach me from the Word of
God. He didn't know how many of us he would feed even after
his death. Oh, thanks be unto God for supplying us with a
man such as him. I rejoice! God bless you all! Enclosed is
a small amount of money, considering the wealth these tapes
have been to my heart and soul!!
From a CHRISTIAN in ENGLAND:
Ian Murray of the Banner of Truth Trust recently gave us the
name of an elderly gentleman, who is blind, and we have told
him of your ministry. He would like to receive some tapes
and I should be glad if you would send him the first 15 of
Paul's Christology series. With Christian greetings.
From RETIRED MISSIONARIES in
We are most grateful for the group of tapes recorded by Bro.
Ferrell Griswold, which were sent to us. We appreciate so
much Pastor Cap Pooser submitting our name for being a recipient
of these tapes! We have missed expository teaching of the
Word since our retirement from California “ where we
were members of Grace Community Church where John MacArthur
was Pastor and, oh, how we have appreciated these tapes!!
It is sad that most pastors in churches do not teach much
beyond salvation. We would appreciate the catalog of these
tapes so we can select more. We understand we can keep these
tapes [we don't understand how this is possible]. However,
we will share these messages with those of our friends who
are willing to grow in the Lord and take time in the Word
to do so through these tapes. We're very grateful that the
Berean Tape Ministry has made this possible. We are convinced
there are many, as Bro. Griswold said that, "If it were
a criminal offense to be a Christian “ a court could
not find evidence in many "so called Christians"
to convict them!" We are living in serious days in America
and we have been sad seeing this since our return from years
on the mission field. We will be praying for your Ministry,
Mr. Wood, and will greatly appreciate a catalog. We ask God
to bless this ministry and you, sir, in your faithfulness
to share the Word of God through one who "though in Glory,
yet speaketh the truth of God". Thank you!!
From a PASTOR in VIRGINIA:
I wish to express my deep appreciation for your tape ministry.
The most recent tapes which you sent to me pertaining to the
survey of the Bible have been most helpful, instructive and
uplifting. Also, the references that are given in these tapes
concerning resource books have been very excellent in supplementing
my studies. When I go walking I listen to one of these tapes.
When I lie down at night, or take a trip, I listen to these
tapes. Thank you again for this wonderful ministry in which
you are engaged. As a pastor, I am deeply indebted to both
of you for your help.
From a CHRISTIAN BROTHER in
Dearest Brethren, I believe and trust in our only Saviour,
the Lord Jesus Christ, that you're all fine. Myself and all
the brethren here we're very well. Greetings to you all in
the loving name, Jesus Christ. I write to you again that I
may acknowledge receipt of the 14 message tapes you sent me.
I would like to take this time to thank the Lord Jesus Christ
for your ministry, which I believe is a blessing to millions
of souls all around the world. May Jehovah God richly bless
this ministry and may the Lord also increase knowledge, wisdom
as well as the anointing he has given to Bro. Ferrell Griswold
as he teaches out to millions of souls. Brethren, I would
appreciate much if you continue remembering me both in prayers
and whenever you have latest messages. God bless you all!
From BRETHREN in ARIZONA:
We're thankful for your wonderful ministry that allows new
generations of believers to hear the inspiring sermons of
Ferrell Griswold. His lifetime service and devotion in the
name of Jesus Christ has brought joy to our hearts and we
pray that that can go on to generations to help many in years
to come. We have learned so much from his teaching and his
lifetime of work. We will order more in the future and hope
that many people will be benefited like we have been. We'll
pray for the prosperity of your work for the Lord.
From a PRISONER in CALIFORNIA:
I am a prisoner in the California Dept. of Corrections, doing
a life sentence. I’ve been in prison since 1980. My
name is .... and I’m 39 years old. I am writing concerning
literature and audio cassettes to help me better understand
scriptures that tend to baffle me at times- and leave me not
knowing what the scriptures actually mean. I’m looking
for any help you could give me if possible and I would be
ever so grateful for any assistance you can give me.
Mr. Wood, Jr., thank you for your time and cooperation and
may our precious Lord above keep a watchful eye over you and
your love ones and keep all of you safe and from harms way
at all times. Sincerely, your brother in Christ.
From a PASTOR in ENGLAND:
Dear Christian Friends, I must at once send word to say that
your parcel of tapes has arrived safely, with “ like
the Gospel itself “ “nothing to pay”! I
have just sampled' the ministry by hearing the first of the
series on the Creation vs Evolution issue. In anticipation
of hearing more over the coming weeks, I must say how grateful
I am; first, to the Lord, from whom all blessings flow; then,
for your late dear pastor, who, “though dead, yet speaketh”;
and then to your good selves for your Christian stewardship
in making this ministry available. That the Lord will own
His own Word, there is no doubt, and it is good to know that
it is being made so widely available. May He enable and strengthen
you in this service for His glory.
As a small gesture of appreciation,
I have added your name to our regular mailing list for GOSPEL
TIDINGS (four issues a year). I have also posted a copy of
my book, AXMINSTER ECCLESIASTICA, the firsthand account of
the work and suffering of a Puritan church in 17th century
England. I will also, as soon as I am able, mail you a couple
of cassettes of my own sermons. That seems to be a little
`return' of fellowship in the Gospel. The Lord sustain and
bless you in your labours.
From a SISTER in CHRIST in CONNECTICUT:
Dearest Bro. Wood and all the staff at Berean ministry. I
cannot begin to tell you how much I give God the praise for
this wonderful spirit filled taped ministry. All the glory
I give first to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for allowing
this ministry to distribute those powerful messages preached
in past years by this great man and servant of God, Bro. Ferrell
E. Griswold. It was by God's great wisdom and providence these
messages were recorded. I am unable to find the appropriate
words to tell you how much I do thank you for sending me all
these tapes. I have been edified, renewed, touched and illuminated
by them. Thank you to all of you for your sacrifices and your
hard work. Please be assured you have not labored in vain.
May our Lord and Savior continue to richly bless this ministry.
May this tape ministry reach other parts of the world without
any compromises. The whole counsel of God needs to be heard
where we can be cut to the heart and seek God's face, mercies
and salvation. Our God shall supply the need of this ministry.
The Word of God is priceless. The Lord Himself will open our
hearts and we will support this ministry. His Spirit will
lead us to give according to what we have. Dear Brethren,
continue in faith to keep this ministry alive. Jehovah will
provide!!! Many thanks and love to you all.
From a CHRISTIAN BROTHER in
I'm a regular listener to Family Radio on WFRS in Smithtown
Long Island. Probably my favorite broadcast is “Echoes”
which is broadcast here 5 days a week, at 9:00p.m. Anytime
I hear that tapes of the late Bro. Ferrell Griswold will be
played I make sure to catch the broadcast. What a blessing
to hear such a powerful preacher for the Lord! Recently, I
heard a tape of Bro. Griswold's entitled ``The Sluggard's
Farm". Could you send information on how I can obtain
a copy? Sincerely yours.
From a soon to be SEMINARY STUDENT
Dear Bro. Wood, thank you very much for the excellent audio
tapes of Bro. Griswold's messages and the printed materials
included with them. They have been a wonderful blessing to
me in furthering my understanding of the Doctrines of Grace.
In answer to God's call to the ministry of His Word, I have
been accepted at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
and am occasionally privileged to preach in supply of local
pulpits. I believe in the Doctrines of Grace and study the
writings and sermons of the Puritans in the hope that I might
someday preach God's Word in conformity to their pattern of
the clear thought and expression of Bible truth resulting
from the illumination of the Spirit and diligent study. Bro.
Griswold's sermons are the finest example of the earnest and
dedicated preaching of the whole counsel of God that I have
ever heard. Thank you again for your faithful ministry and
I pray that God will richly bless you in your service to our
Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
