It was another great year in Utah, as always, at the Mormon Miracle Pageant! Before arriving, I was a bit concerned because this past year, the LDS Church bought part of the street where the pageant is. I thought that it might hinder our witnessing opportunities, but it sure didn’t! Nearly all the Christians were able to get into conversations with the Mormon people in spite of these changes. The Mormon Church may think that they own the main street in front of their temple, but I know the Creator and Owner of all things. Continue reading “Appealing to the Mormon Conscience”
“I’m new to this site and from what I have seen so far I think this is fantastic! The power of prayer should never be under estimated. I am very excited to be able to talk with others who have been delivered. I pray that all our loved ones who are still involved with the Witnesses will see Christ in us through our example, I pray that we are equipped by the Holy Spirit to live as Christ lived.” — Craig

We have a particular prayer focus for people struggling with issues in coming out of these groups and also provide a prayer covering for those who minister to them.

What another great year at the Mormon Miracle Pageant! It was a wonderful time to bring the truth and light of Jesus.
On the first day I was there, I stood on the sidewalk where people were passing by and I asked individuals if they could answer a quick question that I have concerning the introduction to the Book of Mormon. The introduction to the 1981 edition of The Book of Mormon says, “The Book of Mormon is a volume of Holy Scripture comparable to the Bible. It is a record of God’s dealings with the ancient inhabitants of the Americas and contains, as does the Bible, the fullness of the everlasting gospel.”
Kathy and I spent several days witnessing and teaching at the 50th Anniversary of the Mormon Miracle Pageant in Manti, Utah. Over 250 Christians from around the Country meet in this small Mormon Community to participate in the largest single outreach to the Mormon people each year. Our witnessing to the young adults of the Mormon Church was particularly well received as they honestly want to know the Truth, and yet they instinctively know that they have been deceived to some degree.
This month, the correspondence from our website brought an unusual email from a Mormon gentleman:
“Instead of trying to bring different Christian sects to combat the evil in the world, you serve the devil by criticizing others you truly know nothing about… I believe that Jesus Christ is the only Savior of this world! I also know His mission is one of peace, loving one another, praying for your enemies, and banding together as Christians to combat the evil in the world! ALL CONFUSION AND CONTENTION IS ONLY OF THE DEVIL! Your website is filled with contention, not peace and love and filled with disaffected Mormons or Jehovah Witnesses that never truly understood their religions. May God have mercy on your contentious souls, for you know not what you do nor whom you serve!”Continue reading “Responding to Criticism”
I am so pleased to report that we had another incredible month handling calls for Witnesses for Jesus. Although the calls were quite peculiar, it reminded me of the times we are living in and how we need to guard our hearts. Continue reading “Interesting Calls to Our Ministry”
On April 2nd and 3rd, Doug and I attended the LDS 186th Annual General Conference at Temple Square in Salt Lake City Utah. Every year, we stand on the corner of South Temple at the plaza entrance to reach out to the LDS that are heading to the conference center on North Temple.

The wheels of Justice grind slow, but I have faith that all will be done for the Glory of God and according to His Plan.
At this time, I am able to provide you with a short update on several pre-Trial developments.
First, I can report with confidence that many, who may have otherwise, not have come to a full knowledge of the deceptions within the Mormon faith, and more importantly the Love of Christ, have. I have communicated with one of the two men who came to Christ in Jail; he is doing well and strong in his faith. Continue reading “Lee Baker Court Battle Drags On – Jan 2016”
Doug and I attended our 18th Semi Annual LDS General Conference at Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah on October 3rd and 4th. We always look forward to seeing how God will use us to reach the LDS people and proclaim His truth.
We want to thank all of you for your love and support and for your prayers! Lee was released from Jail today! It was one of the toughest jails in the area but God used him to lead two people to the Lord and another two others to recommit their lives to Christ! On the phone yesterday, Lee told Kathy “God has a bigger purpose in me being here than just the Mormon situation.” His heart stayed close to Jesus and His Faith in God’s Sovereignty the WHOLE TIME he was in this tough place. Thank you for your prayers and support! Continue reading “Lee was released from Jail today!”
We are asking for fervent prayer for Ex-Mormon Bishop Lee and Kathy Baker right now as yesterday, Lee was required to appear for a “contempt of court” hearing in Indianapolis due to his communication with Mormon leadership that took place as a result of his involvement with the Indiana Mormon Temple opening. After the hearing, Lee was taken into custody with felony and misdemeanor harassment charges. Continue reading “Former Mormon Bishop in Jail”
Doug and I attended the 49th annual Mormon Miracle Pageant at Manti Utah during the 18th thru the 27th of June. Over the past few years we have noticed a decline in LDS attendance to the pageant and this year was no exception. Unfortunately, there seemed to be fewer Christian evangelist in attendance this year as well. Although, there were still plenty of Mormons that heard the truth of the Gospel and Jesus in contrast to the deception of Mormon doctrine. Even with the attendance being very low on some nights, we still had a lot of conversations and handed out hundreds of tracts. Continue reading “Challenging Mormons with the Real Gospel”
Trevor is a young man who has a real heart for Mormons. This year we were able to help him join our team with Rob and Doug witnessing at the Manti Utah Pageant.
My experience in Manti, Utah in June of 2015 was spectacular as usual! This was my third year to attend this event. I explored the following two concepts with the people that I spoke with: the concepts of fullness and forgiveness. Christians and Latter-day Saints (LDS) seem to view these concepts through a different lens. Christians believe that the Bible is the infallible word of God which cannot be added to or subtracted from and that it is the fullness of truth. LDS believe that the Bible is the word of God as far as it is correctly translated, as stated in the 8th Article of Faith. They also use the Doctrine and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price, as scripture. Regarding forgiveness, Christians believe that all sins; past, present, and future were all forgiven the moment that Jesus said, “It is finished” on the cross; while LDS disagree.
The Manti Outreach to the Mormon People is the largest known Christian gathering to witness to and pray for the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the world. This two-week event is held in Manti, Utah and is centered on The Mormon Miracle Pageant sponsored by the Mormon Church each June.
As a direct result of your generous support this past year, Kathy and I were able to spend just over two-weeks witnessing to the Mormons and providing Training to over 400 Christians who traveled to Manti from New England, Florida, California and even central England to participate in this outpouring of Love and Compassion to the lost souls of the Mormon Faith.
On this trip we were able to teach a class on how to witness to Mormons at Calvary Chapel SLC for a group of youth that came to visit Russ East of KUTR radio. We were able to witness at the Manti Pageant for 8 nights. We taught a class on how to witness to Mormons at Wasatch Cowboy Church (Pastor Larry McGruder) a small church that is made up of 70% of Ex-Mormons, and we taught a class on how to witness to Mormons at Ephraim Church of the Bible for Tri-Grace Ministries.

Doug and I attended the 185th LDS Annual General Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah at the LDS Temple Square on April 4th and 5th. This was our 17th General Conference sharing the Gospel and Biblical truth to the LDS people and exposing false LDS teachings. As the Gospel goes, it has bad news and good news. The bad news is about us and the good news is about Jesus. Continue reading “Would you allow a false prophet to influence your life?”
