His answer was classic Schwarzkopf. He said, "I believe that forgiving them is God's function. Our job is simply to arrange the meeting."
General Norman Schwarzkopf was asked in an interview if he didn't think there was room for forgiveness toward the people who have harbored and abetted the terrorists who perpetrated the September 11th attacks on America.
His answer was classic Schwarzkopf. He said, "I believe that forgiving them is God's function. Our job is simply to arrange the meeting."
Charles Dickens wrote in his classic A Tale of Two Cities, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us."
None of us are exempt from the adversities and trials of life. I am no exception.
In recent weeks, I have been confronted with a multiplicity of unusual circumstances beyond the normal for me. It has seemed "that everything that would go wrong did go wrong, and I felt if anything worked out right, I could work it in." I remember hearing Tremendous Jones saying that several decades ago. He was a great motivational speaker and enabled us to laugh in the midst of struggles and trying times in our lives.
I have experienced cable Internet services with Comcast, and had to purchase a higher speed service to correct my WiFi connection from my desktop computer in our Florida Room to my router in my office over our garage. I have established a new office in our Florida Room in order that I don't have to walk up and down 14 steps. I am afraid of falling at my age. So my desktop computer here in our Florida Room is connected through radio waves to my router upstairs.
The Internet server we had used for many years had not kept up with the latest technology and my daily Hugh's News were not getting out in the mass distribution system by another company that sends them out at 6 o'clock in the mornings. The system seems complicated, but when the team of people and the companies work together in unity all goes well, and has for many years. This is my 18th year publishing the news for the various ministries of the IPHC and the body of Christ worldwide. And I do my work and ministry with a passion because God has called me to do it, and I do not want to fail the Lord of Heaven. One day, I will give an account of my stewardship of what He has given me to do and the resources with which to accomplish this mission.
Hugh's News is the electronic flagship of Communications serving IPHC Ministries and the body of Christ worldwide. That's my mission statement. However, I, also, have a Biblical or Scriptural Mission. It is recorded in the Book of Daniel 12:3, "And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever" (KJV).
We have had to terminate with the internet server and negotiate with another company. My webmaster had had to design a new website design and a new system, as well as a new newsletter design. We have encountered bugs in both systems, and Mel Tinney is working long hours--a week ago, he spent some 30 hours on this problem to solve it. The lack of daily news was beyond my control, and I needed professional help. Mel Tinney came to the rescue.
In addition, both Melvine and I are having health issues that has needed immediate attention by our doctors, and even a visit to the emergency room this past Wedneday at Athens Regional Medical Center Hospital in Athens, GA, where Melvine needed a blood transfusion due to a low hemoglobin and lack of iron. Apparently, Melvine is bleeding internally, and the doctors are running all sorts of tests to determine where. She is to have a colonoscopy to see where the blood is going. She has not had the energy and strength in recent days as she normally has.
I have had to have oral surgery twice. Once to remove the remaining six upper teeth in my mouth, and last Sunday afternoon, my dentist , Dr. Stuart Erwin, in Elberton, GA, had to go back in and clip and round off a sharp edge of the bone where the right wisdom tooth had been anchored for some 80 years. It was cutting my gum and I was tormented with sharp, burning and unrelenting pain. I remember asking my maternal grandmother how old she was and her answer was always the same, "I am as old as my tongue and a little bit older than my teeth." She lived to be 95. It will take 6 to 8 weeks for my gums to heal. Then, my dentist in Franklin Springs, Dr. Jordon Chandler, who bought Dr. Don Brady's practice, will make impressions and have a permanent denture plate manufactured. In addition, my new family doctor, Dr. Alice Edwards, had me go to a sleep lab, and sure enough I have sleep apnea. I am now on a machine at night with a mask breathing in oxygen. I am having to get accustomed to it.
So, I am asking those who want me to publish their ministries to bear with me. Sometimes, I am overwhelmed, but I am a fighter, and will never give up. I am a Marine. We were taught, "Once a Marine, always a Marine." I will continue to give you the best in journalism that I can give.
I need your prayers for Melvine and me, that God will restore us to glowing health and strength along with wisdom and spiritual understanding.
Then, I need your financial support to help me with the expenses of producing Hugh's News.

In the stillness of the dark, cool fall morning of October 13, 2015, seven Mission:M25 riders and two wives roared from Siler City, NC’s Journey Church, led by Pastors Mark and Ellen Richardson. The miles passed quickly toward another mission to bring a dose of healing and keep the memory alive of nearly 59,000 men and women who died on the battlefields of Vietnam. In South Hill, VA a large crowd was assembled around an eighteen wheeled truck and trailer carrying a small replica of the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC. The event was being led by a Mission:M25 hero, two Purple Heart recipient, Andy Roberson. The ride from South Hill to Henderson was planned and led by M25 leader, Tom Mangum. There was a total of thirteen M25 members involved in this historic event for Henderson, NC.
After a moving prayer, directions from Tom Mangum and Pastor Mark, riders mounted their Iron War Horses, following the local police, county Sheriff and State Patrol cars and motorcycles. M25 riders assisted in blocking the highway to keep the riders safe, but the high light of all, five of us formed the Missing Man formation. M25 riders had two riders riding side-by-side, followed by a lone rider, that was followed by two riders riding side-by-side. This created the image of one rider missing in the formation. We were challenged to remember that the ride was for the almost 59,000 missing warriors. We have ridden in many formations and rides for an individuals but never have we ridden in formation for 59,000 men and women. There are no words to explain the emotions felt as I rode 41 miles with these thoughts running through my head. Some of the thoughts that can be shared:
* I was riding with my wife that I have shared over 46 years with behind me. She and I enjoy a great life and cherish the three children that we were blessed to raise and the mates they have chosen for life. The joyful memories with eight grandchildren, the many family meals, the family vacations, and the fact these men and women we are riding for never having had the joy of experiencing.
* The children on the streets waving flags, these 59,000 never received the welcome home of flags waving and people cheering.
* Listening to music in my headset, remembering the good times of those years of our life. Knowing these warriors died with little good memories around them.
Many of the M25 riders are not veterans, how do we receive the honor given as we ride? On Run For The Wall we have drilled in us, "we ride for those who can’t." This day as I rode I thought of how normal this is for us believers, for we have a life of receiving honor for things we accomplish and "deflecting" it to our Lord, the true source and "hero" of our faith. This day, one more time, as the people waved and cheered, I "deflected" the shine of glory to the almost 59,000 names on the wall and the “Purple Heart Riders" that were following directly behind us and the thousands of "heroes" that were on the streets and on bikes behind me.
As we rode through Henderson, NC, a man wrinkled by age and a hard life, wearing a Vietnam Veteran cap, stepped from the curb and pointed at me. Wow, the look of gratitude broke my heart and again the eyes swelled with tears. Riding thousands of miles, setting hours listening to these broken heroes, it seems to me that every time we do something for these men and women, it brings a little more healing to their brokenness. There will never be a "one dose" fix it for them, never one time of laying on of the hands and it is gone, it is little doses of love and honor that will bring ease to these who wake in the night with a "flashback," smell a certain order and return to the battlefield mentally, an image that flashes before them and the sweat begins to roll again or a loud sound behind them that makes them hit the ground or turn ready to fight or simply paralyzes them in their tracks.
After we dropped off the truck at the site we would later return and help assemble "the wall," we rolled to Chick-Fil-A, where a full meal was awaiting us. The owner blocked the parking lot for us, had tables and chairs setup in the grass where they served us a sandwich, fries and cold ice tea free of charge. Patriotism is still alive and well at the grass roots level of our nation. Get out of the large cities and get where people are still working for a living, doing their best to raise a family and you will find Patriotism.
Then there was the assembly of "The wall." We arrived on location ready for work, sweat, orders to get this "done right." I was honored to get in the trailer and carry over half of the "panels" with names etched on it, the thoughts continued. Oh Lord, please don’t let me put a scratch on the panel, drop it and bend it. We all handled it with gloves as not to damage it in any way. The hours rolled on as we carried the panels carefully to a team that connected them together, leveled them and lined them up. We finished the honorable task with the placement of approximately 50, 3’x5’ flags flying on poles decorated with small evergreen trees and potted flowers and encased by bales of dried pine needles scattered in a row.
As night fell, the lights illuminated the wall and there was a feeling of successfully bringing healing and remembering. Almost immediately people began to walk the isle, reading names. One older gentleman approached, "I am trying to find a name….," so the Replica begins it’s mission.
On Friday, October 15, 2015, we once again saddled up for Henderson, NC to participate in the opening ceremonies for the weekend. How can we share the feelings? Standing on the honored stage to open in prayer, among Purple Heart Recipients, Prisoners of War (POW), General Gaddis and Colonel Blue, it was one of the most moving things I have experienced in my life. The prayer was for the healing of our veterans standing there that day, the rain falling caused us to request peace for those who lost loved ones and cried tears and finally for those in harms way today on foreign soil.
A group from the ROTC displayed the "Missing Man Table," another group of children sang a special song and then there was the posting of the "Colors."
General Gaddis, 92 years old, Air Force Pilot, who suffered in a POW Camp for 2124 days of which 1004 were in isolation, flew 73 combat missions, fought in not only the Vietnam War but the Korean War, challenged us with his words of memory. He spoke very candid about the ability of the military and the quality of men who died with him on the battlefields.
Colonel Blue, a retired Army veteran who fought beside the Vietnamese soldiers for a year and then fought beside his USA brothers another year during his two tours of duty spoke with passion and authority. One of the things that rang a bell, "The USA may have lost the Vietnam War but we won our battles." This statement will be my battle cry for the years ahead.
It was a day of speeches, prayers and honors without much regard to "Political Correctness." The service was complete after the "21 Gun Salute" and "Taps" being played. It is so good to represent the Kingdom of God, the IPHC, Mission:M25 and all churches in these places. It is our only hope to save this nation for the King. We are so proud of our M25 Team, we not only serve on RFTW, we serve all year long when the opportunity arises.
Hidden in the midst of His teaching known to us as The Sermon on the Mount, Jesus talked about being light. He said, “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father" (Matthew 5:14-16, NLT). That’s how I have always viewed the role of the Mobile Feeding Kitchen. Being a light. . .
And for twenty-one days, that is what the Disaster Relief Mobile Feeding Kitchen tried to be. On Wednesday, October 28, the Mobile Feeding Kitchen completed a twenty-one day deployment to Kingstree, South Carolina. During those three weeks, the Kitchen served well over 15,000 meals and our volunteers committed to long hours in order to serve families trying to recover from the flooding in South Carolina.
As I have tried to emphasize over the last few weeks, IPHC Ministries stepped up in a great way financially, enabling DRUSA to remain in the field to serve meals to those in need as well as to work closely with the Williamsburg County Emergency Services. Once all the bills have been submitted, we are estimating that this will have been a $30,000 to $35,000 deployment. I had the privilege to share our story to the IPHC Council of Bishops in Norman, Oklahoma of Wednesday October 28 and informed them that that I am confident the funds will come in from across the church to meet this need.
Whenever we respond to a crisis, there are so many individuals that participate to make everything work. I am afraid that if I listed some, I might miss others. So, to all of our cooking teams, volunteers, financial supporters, intercessors, Williamsburg County staff, as well as local businesses and churches, thank you so much for making it happen!
While we had a tremendous opportunity to serve a local community, I have to say that one of the highlights from this deployment was receiving a visit from the governor of South Carolina, Governor Nikki Haley. On Monday, October 26, Governor Haley came to the area to see some of the areas affected by the flooding. While in the area, the governor stopped by the Mobile Feeding Kitchen to express her appreciation and took a little time to personally thank all of the Kitchen volunteers that were present for their service to Williamsburg County and the surrounding areas.
It is going to take a long time for residents in this area to recover from all of the damage that resulted from the flooding. Disaster Relief USA played a small role in being able to touch many families with the love and care of Jesus Christ during our three-week stay. To God be all the glory!
FRANKLIN SPRINGS, GA — What if you could read the stories of Jesus’ life like a travelogue? Each encounter, complete with snapshots, weaving the story of Jesus’ journey among men? What if you were invited on this journey, to go with Him, become part of the discussion and interaction as He touched the lives of those He met? A Man who loved those who hungered to see and touch God, whether they understood who He truly was or not.
The lonely? He loved them.
The misfits? He loved them.
The legalistic, religious, gotta-do-it-our-way-or-we-will-kill-you folks? He loved them.
Demonstrations of His love differ with each scene, but uniqueness merges with unity; the same pure, profound love shines in every sighting. The same love He shares with you as you travel with Him.
Walk with Jesus. Experience His life — through His story in this compelling new book, Pause With Jesus.
Chris Maxwell is a storyteller with the eyes of a poet and a pastor with.the heart of a mystic. In this fourth installment of the “Pause” series, Chris chooses 30 scenes from the life of Christ and then invites you to hit pause and step into each story. Then he invites you to take the time to read, reflect, receive and respond, before you step back with Jesus into your life.

In His name and for His glory,
bill terry, Drusa National coordinator, reports on ministry of feeding kitchen in south carolina's flooding crisis
With the deployment of DRUSA’s Mobile Feeding Kitchen moving into its third week, the number of individuals being served on a daily basis are beginning to shows signs of slowing down. An increasing number of residents are returning to their homes, electricity is being restored to a larger area, and clean-up measures are well underway. The meal count for Wednesday was 1,218 while the count for Thursday had greatly decreased to 590. Over the weekend, I will continue to track the number of meals being served each day to determine how much longer a need exists for the Kitchen to remain in Kingstree, South Carolina.
On Monday, October 26, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will visit Kingstree and other surrounding area that have been impacted by the flooding. Dr. Tiffany Cooks, Director for Williamsburg County Emergency Services, has asked that the kitchen remain at least through the weekend and be prepared to serve a large number of individuals at lunch on Monday. Emergency Services will be providing the necessary provisions to meet this request.
The North Carolina Cooking Team has been serving at the Kitchen since last weekend. They will be relieved on Saturday morning by the team from South Carolina. I applaud the leadership of Gordon Knox, NC Conference DRUSA Coordinator, and his team of volunteers for a job well done.
I am finally back in Oklahoma City and will be presenting a report to the Council of Bishops (COB) early this week regarding all aspects of the deployment. The COB meeting will take place in Norman, Oklahoma. Presiding Bishop Doug Beacham has graciously provided an opportunity for me to give an update on Disaster Relief USA during their meeting.
Once again, I want to emphasize how tremendous the response has been from across the International Pentecostal Holiness Church with prayer and financial support. The IPHC has had the opportunity to be a blessing to so many through the ministry of Disaster Relief USA. People are amazed when they see our operation for mass feeding in response to a disaster through volunteer staffing and financial support from conferences, churches and individuals.
I do not want to become redundant with my expressions of appreciation and thanks, but this deployment and the thousands of lives that were positively impacted was only possible because of God’s blessing and your support. Thank you so very much! As we wind down, your prayers and financial gifts are still needed. If you would like to make a contribution, you can do so online at Hurricane Victim Relief. Have a blessed weekend...
DRUSA National Coordinator
Emmanuel College first opened on January 1, 1919, under the name of Franklin Springs Institute. During its first year, the institution offered the first 11 grades of school and a Biblical Department for prospective ministers. The founder of the school was the Reverend George Floyd Taylor, a North Carolinian who had long desired to begin such an institution. For over a century the campus had been used as a health resort centered around several mineral springs. Only 50 students enrolled the first year, so not all of the old wooden resort buildings were used. By 1922, however, the school was opened free of charge, and the buildings were filled to capacity. Throughout the early years, G. F. Taylor was president, except for 1926-27, when the Reverend B. A. Jones was president. Because of the Great Depression, the school closed temporarily in 1931.
In 1933 the school was reopened as a high school and junior college, with the Reverend Thomas Lee Aaron as president. Under President Aaron’s leadership, the school gradually progressed from a small community school to a modern, influential junior college. In 1939, the name of the institution was changed to Emmanuel, meaning “God with us.” Upon Reverend Aaron’s death in January 1951, Mr. Woodard Glenn Drum, former dean of the college, became president.
The administration of President Drum saw the completion of the present campus quadrangle, the recruitment of an excellent faculty, and the gaining of full accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission of Colleges in 1967. The high school department, which had earlier been fully accredited by the Southern Association, was discontinued in 1963. With the retirement of President Drum in January 1970, Dr. Culbreth Young Melton became the sixth president of the institution.
Under Dr. Melton’s administration a four-year School of Christian Ministries was inaugurated and accredited by the American Association of Bible Colleges. A new Learning Resources Center was constructed, and the overall quality of the institution was improved. Upon Dr. Melton’s retirement, Dr. David Roger Hopkins became the seventh president in June 1983.
Many campus improvements are credited to Dr. Hopkins’ leadership, including construction of the Student Activities Center, two new residence halls and the Wellons Science Resources Center, and acquisition of the John W. Swails Convocation Center. Major changes in curricular offerings also accompanied accreditation as a four-year institution by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission of Colleges in 1991. During the 1992-93 academic year, the consolidation of the two- and four-year programs was completed as Emmanuel began offering many new baccalaureate degree programs.
Upon Dr. Hopkins’ retirement in 2005, the Rev. Michael S. Stewart was inaugurated as the eighth president of Emmanuel College. The college moved into the future under Dr. Stewart's leadership and fresh vision. During his administration, significant efforts were made to enhance the campus by expanding academic and athletic programs and by improving the quality of campus life through new resident and athletic facilities. The expansive athletic center is a focal point of campus life and has added many recreational and wellness opportunities for students.
In October 2014, Dr. Ronald G. White became the ninth president of Emmanuel College after being named interim president only a month before. A 1969 graduate of Emmanuel, President White previously worked at Emmanuel in enrollment management from 1980 to 2002 and served in additional roles during that time.
At the foundation of the many changes and progress over the years remains the paramount emphasis on Christ-centered values. Emmanuel finds much of its justification for existence in its purpose of offering education of high academic quality in a Christian environment. The successful performance of students who have completed Emmanuel’s degree programs and later transferred to other institutions of higher learning reflects the quality of Emmanuel’s academic efforts. The lives of EC alumni speak of the quality of the Christian academic opportunities they have received. Through its program of Christian higher education, Emmanuel College has attempted to provide students with academic and spiritual values that will enrich their lives and lead them to enrich the lives of others in the highest Christian tradition.
Why do you say, O Jacob,
And speak, O Israel:
"My way is hidden from the LORD,
And my just claim is passed over by my God"?
28 Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the LORD,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
31 But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
FIVE Best Things to Say When Caught Sleeping at Your Desk
5. "They told me at the Blood Bank this might happen."
4. "This is just a 15 minute power nap they raved about in the time management course you sent me to."
3. "Whew! Guess I left the top off the Whiteout. You probably got here just in time."
2. "Did you ever notice sound coming out of these keyboards when you put your ear down real close?"
And the NUMBER ONE best thing to say if you get caught sleeping at your desk...
1. Raise your head slowly and say, "...in God's' name, Amen."
Behold, the Lord GOD shall come with a strong hand,
And His arm shall rule for Him;
Behold, His reward is with Him,
And His work before Him.
11 He will feed His flock like a shepherd;
He will gather the lambs with His arm,
And carry them in His bosom,
And gently lead those who are with young.

Each Christmas People to People Ministries gives gifts to over 5000 children on our sponsorship program.
This year our goal is to raise $50,000 to purchase these gifts and to share the Christmas spirit. Before the busyness of the season begins will you give a generous contribution to this very important offering?
You may Click Here to watch Matt Bennett, Director of People to People, explain about this exciting opportunity to bless over 5,000 children who may not get any Christmas gifts this year. You and I can make a difference in the lives of Children who need to know that Jesus loves them and so do we.
Have you ever waited to purchase someone's gift until you had received theirs? I know I have. We do in order to see what measure we should give or to see what is expected. In 2 Corinthians 9:15, NKJV, Paul says, “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” He says this in the context of taking an offering. In other words, as you consider how generous you need to be, remember God gave us Jesus Christ, His indescribable Gift. So as you give today, let us also remember how greatly we have been blessed.
