Dear Friends,

I am to have surgery on my ankle on Monday, August 5, which is nine days before the Samuel Davies Conference on Evangelism, August 14-17. I knew for the last couple of weeks that I cannot make that trip but thought we could still have the conference in my absence. Several close to me said that is probably a workable solution. Therefore, we are postponing the Samuel Davies Conference on Evangelism until the next NASCAR race at Bristol, which is April 5, 2020.

If you have already registered for the upcoming conference and with to have a refund of your registration fee, then we can make that happen. Simply email Nathan Blevins at and ask him for it. If you plan on attending next April, and you do not wish to get a refund then you do not need to contact Nathan.

As far as I know, John Barber will be with us, but I am pretty sure Bill Adams will have other commitments.

The race is on Sunday, April 5 which is Palm Sunday. We plan on running from Thursday April 2, 6 PM until Sunday April 5, a minutes before the race. We will continue our usual format.

I am sorry to we need to postpone, and I hope, most, if not all of you can make it to Bristol April 2-5, 2020.


Dr. Al Baker
