Oldiesmann: Final update on this, for those not on Seniors and Friends... I got the car. Similar payments to what I had with the Malibu, but for only 4 years instead of 6. Dec 11 2019 1:45am

Oldiesmann: Yet another update on the car situation... Going to look at a 2012 Hyundai Sonata tomorrow (Tuesday). Hoping to get it, assuming everything looks good and I can get affordable payments Dec 03 2019 12:04am

Oldiesmann: Accident was my fault. Went through what I thought was a yellow light and it turned red before I got through the intersection. Got hit by cross traffic on the front right side Oct 26 2019 10:34am

Marilyn: So is your insurance going to foot the cost of an new car for you. was the accident the other guy's falt or yours? Oct 22 2019 11:42am

Oldiesmann: Update on the car situation... Initial estimate was that the car was repairable. However, after further inspection at a body shop, the insurance company determined that the cost of repairs is about $1200 more than the car is worth Oct 16 2019 10:28pm

Oldiesmann: For those who didn't see the message on seniorsandfriends, I was involved in an accident this morning. I'm fine and my car should be repairable, but I've had the car less than 48 hours and am not looking forward to the costs Sep 30 2019 12:33pm

Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

What a wonderful opportunity to witness for his Lord and Savior!

Max Alderman is highlighted in the September-October issue of Georgia's "Statesboro" Magazine.




From MaxA on Facebook today:

This is an image of myself cropped from a magazine's "Table of Contents' Page" that will feature both my photography and my ministry in this edition of their magazine...it has been a very exciting and nervous time for me...I will try to share some of, or what I am able to, on Facebook for you, my friends. I truly hope that you will enjoy! I have some exciting projects that I am working on as it involves both ministry and photography. God has so graciously given me this opportunity for which I am very thankful.








The title of the article is:  "Capturing God's Creation" by Frank Fortune and what a wonderful job he does doing this!


From Max in McDonalds!!!

"Here is a sample from the magazine article...where I took a photo of the magazine with my IPad. It will feature both my ministry and my photography. I was very pleased with and happy to be featured..."To God be the Glory!" (Sorry that I could not get a better shot in McDonald's... :) "





About the photo above, Max posts:

"For those of you who are asking, the magazine that I am featured in is called "The Statesboro Magazine". It is a magazine that is designed to build "community" and the editor and staff are very skilled at doing just that as they feature different people and their different walks of life. I was very grateful for the very fine way that the editor featured both my ministry and my photography. This magazine is "hi-tech" and may be online...I will try and fine out. The quality is so much better that way than I was able to give, with me just taking a photo with my iphone of the magazine."

This is the article written by Jenny Foss:

Seeing the Lord hath prospered my way. Genesis 24:56 KJV

      He has a connatural view of the world. The serene, pastoral quality of the scenes and landscapes he captures with his CanonĀ® EOS Rebel camera show almost perfect perspective and symmetry. He has a gift for choosing the best vantage point and framing just the right image of every scene. The pictures veteran Baptist minister, evangelist, and Bible scholar Dr. Max Alderman views through his lens weren't always so clear. When he first started a photography mission he refers to as "Capturing God's Creation," he had trouble focusing.

      Diagnosed with Fuchs' (fooks) dystrophy, a hereditary condition which affects the cornea - the eyes clear front window - Dr. Alderman's condition deteriorated over time until he was almost legally blind. He stayed on the road as a guest evangelist as long as he felt was safe, using one eye at a time to focus, but his vision problems made his photography hobby difficult.

      "I had trouble with good focus. My site was not good," he said. After two corneal transplants and two cataract surgeries, he sees a whole new world. "Coming back, now I see clearly. I see light and shadow like never before," he stated. "Now I see everything as a beautiful painting."

      The son of Harmon and Mattie Alderman grew-up with siblings Ronnie and Jo Agnes on the west side of Bulloch County in an area where the Alderman family has owned land for over 200 years. A carpenter by trade, Harmon Alderman was a dedicated Christian who hand-crafted the podium for his church. A podium from which he encouraged young Max to preach. Dr. Alderman remembers, "At a very young age I felt called to preach. After my conversion, Daddy pointed me in the right direction."

      "On Sunday mornings when I was little - probably eight-years-old, because I could read - Daddy would encourage me to preach and Ronnie to lead the singing," he said.

      He attended Mattie Lively and Statesboro High School, graduating in 1967. He went on to earn a PhD from Landmark Baptist College and was soon called to lead the congregation at Bible Baptist Church of Statesboro, a position he held for 27 years.

Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction.
2 Timothy 4:2

      An evangelical minister, Dr. Alderman's homiletic style of preaching delivers a strong gospel message based on his diligent study of scripture. He believes in edifying the Bible while encouraging the congregation to follow the path to salvation, repenting from sin, and accepting Jesus Christ as Savior.

      While still a young pastor, Dr. Alderman met Rev. Dr. C. L. Roach, a noted Bible teacher and preacher. Twenty years Dr. Alderman's senior, Dr. Roach challenged the young evangelist to look at lesser known truths in scripture, "nuggets revealed through intense study."

      Dr. Roach exemplified in his own life a relationship he saw in the Bible, which he referred to as the "Pastor-Priesthood Parallel." Dr. Roach noticed that priests in scripture served from 20 to 30 years. When approaching age 30, the age at which Christ began his ministry, Dr. Roach believed a young minister should look for a mentor who could impart wisdom and guidance.

      After serving for 30 years as a minister Dr. Alderman related, "At around age 50, Dr. Roach believed a minister should no longer engage in the priesthood, but should start sharing his life experiences while mentoring younger pastors, moving on to another level of service."

Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of God.
Revelations 3:2 KJV

      In 1995, Dr. Alderman told his congregation that he would one day soon be transitioning, leaving the pulpit at Bible Baptist to explore other levels of Christian service. Since that transition from leading a congregation fulltime, he has visited churches in over 40 countries and in most states within the U.S., spreading the Word. Dr. Alderman, along with wife Rhonda, now travels the country as a visiting evangelist, preaching by demand for revivals and other special events.

      A prolific writer, Dr. Alderman's sermons series can be found on-line at www.preacherscorner.org. He has also written five Bible commentaries, each about 350 pages, on the New Testament books of Mark, John, Hebrews, Philippians, and Revelations. Other books of Dr. Alderman's include The Strategy of Preaching, The Holy Spirit - Sunday School & Discipleship, Balancing Out Your Prayer Life, and Christian Stewardship.

      In this stage of his lifetime of ministry, Dr. Alderman focuses on five major themes:

      1. Revival - expository preaching and prayer
      2. Stewardship - giving and serving
      3. Family and home
      4. Missions - strengthening the local church
      5. Church Edification - Bible commentaries & writing ministry

      Dr. Alderman said, "We ought to always have in mind how we can use ourselves to glorify God. Not just on Sunday mornings, but all week, in all things. People like to separate the sacred and the secular and compartmentalize, but for a believer, everything you do should be sacred."

      This gives Dr. Alderman something to strive for in continuing to develop his ministries, including photography. 

     "Photography is about vantage point, perspective, and symmetry," he said. "I find myself always carrying my camera around with me searching scenes for the right perspective. When I see it, I've got to get it." Dr. Alderman's mission of "Capturing God's Creation" so far has been a four-year journey of showcasing the beauty of God's world through his own eyes; a view he never gets tired of as seen through the lens of a camera he cannot put down.


Editor's Note: Dr. Alderman's books may be purchased at www.bethelbaptist.ca or downloaded to your Kindle at www.amazon.com. More of his pictures may be viewed on Facebook at Max Alderman Photography.

It's wonderful that the magazine recognized both his photography and, even greater, his ministry.  There's certainly no question about his expertise as a photographer and I'm sure the Lord is leading him, and using the photography, as a minister of the Gospel!  We are indeed fortunate to be able to number him among our members here in Christian Photographers.

Thanks, Dear Friends....I appreciate your very kind and generous words. I am very thankful that I was able to share my ministry testimony and photos in the Statesboro Magazine. It is certainly my desire to be a witness to those whom I come in contact with, and in this case would be people for whom I have know for many years, from having been a native of Statesboro, Ga. Thanks for the many contributions this group maakes. God bless!

Pat

Will be praying for you as you minister in that big tent in Montana, Max.
