Yesterday I flew into Richmond, Va., to preach for my good friend Dr. Ron Talley. He pastors the Hyles Baptist Church. He is doing an excellent job. He has been their pastor for 25 years. In my estimation he is one of the greatest pulpiteers alive today that I have ever heard in 38 years of ministry. He preached for me at our NATIONAL SOUL WINNING CLINIC in Longview, Texas, and quickly became of our favorite preachers. The atmosphere of the Hyles Baptist Church reminds me of the Longview Baptist Temple of Longview, Texas. The music was soul stirring and I know of no other church as friendly as this dear church family. I taught the pastor’s Sunday school class and they have a great spirit. I also preached this morning and God gave us 8 souls. Dr. Talley said to say hi to Jacob Dean one of his buddies at LBT! I told Dr. Talley that Jacob had called me earlier to make sure that I said hi for Dr. Talley! Jacob bought Dr. Talley some handkerchiefs one year and Dr. Talley has never forgotten that.
