John Whitcomb: August 8, 2016

“Encounter God’s Truth” is celebrating five years of God’s faithfulness in presenting this Bible-upholding broadcast!

This week host Wayne Shepherd invites you to listen to a very unique edition of our program, as we bring you a special treat over the next two weeks.

Previously, we listened to our speaker, Dr. John Whitcomb, give the account of God’s providence in his life and ministry. But now we are going to get a different perspective on that subject—from Mrs. Norma Whitcomb.

In these programs you will hear the Whitcombs’ daughter-in-law—Kim Whitcomb—interview Mrs. Whitcomb, asking her to share her life story and talk about the many interesting experiences that the Lord has brought her through.

Whitcomb Ministries is grateful to both the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship International and Colonial Hills Baptist Church of Indianapolis for permission to broadcast this encouraging presentation. It shows so clearly, once again, that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end.
