Weldon Road Baptist Church, Westminster, SC

Thank you for having us sing and play. We had a wonderful time in the Lord with you all. The sermon was powerful! It was awesome to see the woman give her life to Jesus. God is good!
Thank you for the dinner. It really hit the spot.

Papa noticed the pastor’s Bible had “Rock of Ages” on the spine! Cool!

Spring Recital, Clinton, SC

We had fun at Priscilla’s recitals for her students. This year, there were so many people that she had to split it up into two back-to-back recitals so that we could fit everyone in the church! It worked out great, and all the food that people brought was so good.

A Special Birthday Party, Piedmont, SC

Our “Angel Joe”

Many years ago, when our children were small, I would take them for walks in the subdivision behind our house.  As best as I can remember, when we had around 7 young ones at the time (baby to 10 years), I took them for our usual stroll with our older boys riding their bikes.  They called a large incline the “Lion Hill” due to cement lions outside one of the houses at the hill.  While speeding down, my 8-year-old son lost control and took a bad spill off his bike.  He was screaming uncontrollably with pitiful tears spilling out of his eyes.  As I was trying to juggle everything and feeling overwhelmed, I cried out to the LORD for help.  A kindly-looking man seemed to appear out of nowhere with a shirt that had big letters:


across the front. He came to my aid and helped calm my son down, cleaned up his bleeding wounds, and set us back on our way.  When I finished getting our baby settled into the stroller and looked up to thank him, he was gone!  From that day forward, we always referred to him as our “Angel.”  Although we had walked the subdivision for years leading up to that day and for years following,  we never saw him….until about 3 years ago and 20 years after the incident.

Walking into an assisted-living facility nearby where our family has ministered for over 25 years, I immediately recognized a new resident—our “Angel” Joe! 😊 (We learned that he had lived behind the subdivision on the other side).  We thank God for sending him back into our lives.  He is truly one of the most kind and gentle men we have ever known.  He has since moved to another facility closer to our farm, and every week Peter plays the piano or accordion, holds a devotional and prayer time, and visits with the residents there.  Sometimes we join him.  Our family had the honor of being invited to Joe’s 88th birthday party, and while we were there, the girls were asked to sing.  May God continue to bless our “Angel Joe”, as we’ll never forget his act of kindness so long ago. 


Christian Fellowship Baptist Church, Union, SC

Thank you so much for inviting us to provide your evening service!  Your church was the most engaging group, and it was so fun to sing and play with you.  The friendliness of your congregation was amazing, and it warmed our hearts to see how long folks stayed around talking to us and each other.  What a special congregation you have!  May God continue to bless you.

Billboard Update! Laurens, SC

We either stand for what’s right or we stay silent.
I am proud to say that we are standing strong in Laurens County, and I am honored to lead the charge. What started as a transgender/LGBTQ propaganda billboard targeting the most vulnerable among us, our children, has since transformed into a message of biblical truth. God has been at work in our community and this story is simply too good not to share.

–Luke Rankin

New billboard:

Laurens County Republican Convention, SC

We are excited that Luke won reelection for chairman for the Laurens County Republican Party!  It was an answer to prayer.  We enjoyed singing the National Anthem to kick off the event.  Loud bursts of thunder accompanied both the opening and closing prayers as well as the perfect timing during our song. 😊   What a morning—Praise God!

Laurens County Billboard Controversy, Laurens, SC

The large billboard supporting LGBTQ on I-385, and paid for by AFFA, reads:  REJOICE! GOD LOVES TRANS KIDS
We stand behind Luke’s interview on Channel 7 News and his statement below.  We must pray for repentance and revival in America!

“The agenda of Alliance For Full Acceptance is in their name. They want us to accept their lifestyle, normalize their perversion, and they are trying to use God as a means to accomplish this. God does love trans people, but God hates their sin. I, too, can love them, but at the same time I will call out transgenderism and the LGBTQ agenda for what it is – because it’s wrong and evil. We cannot normalize the mutilation of kids and just accept it. There is a war going on for the souls of our children and it’s our job as parents, pastors, and community leaders to push back, stand united, and declare that we won’t allow this dangerous ideology to take a foothold in our community.”


Philippi Baptist Church, Union, SC

Thank you so much for inviting us to sing and play our instruments on the last night of your Revival. It was such a blessing to our family. Your congregation was so warm and friendly to us, and the message on obedience was convicting.

We all had a fun day biking and eating along the Swamp Rabbit Trail! We are blessed to have these trails so close to home.  In order to qualify for an ROA posting—yes, we did sing and reenact the Sound of Music scene of Do-Re-Me as we rode the bikes!

The Billy Graham Library, Charlotte, NC

Visiting The Billy Graham Library and his childhood home has always been on my to-do list. Today, I was able to cross that off. What a powerful and wonderful experience! The gospel message was clearly given throughout the tour, and Jesus Christ was mentioned more times than I could count. They even had a special time at the end of the tour where an invitation was given to accept Christ. I was thoroughly impressed. The live nativity was a nice added Christmas touch! –Luke

Laurens Republican Festive Christmas Party!

What a mesmerizing night we all had at the Laurens Museum’s elegant party upstairs!  Thank you to the museum for opening up the exhibits for us to see downstairs.  Luke did a great job emceeing the event as well as providing the musical entertainment.  We enjoyed getting to see some of our friends join us there, and the food was delicious.
