A Note from Les
A Note from Les: Dear Friends, I'm the world's worst letter writer - as soon as I put the comma behind the greeting, my mind goes blank. I tell Iris, "I can't think of anything to write about." This time, she countered with, "When people write us, they tell us what they have been doing, and we enjoy that. Don't you think they would like to know what we have been doing?" Okay. Here goes!
After our seminars in NC and GA, we were home a few weeks catching up with the mail. Labor Day, we had our annual picnic for our Oklahoma classes (and had our largest turnout ever). The next day we got ready to leave for MN, and Wednesday had our TV taping in Tulsa. We left Tulsa about 6:30pm that night and made it to our favorite Super 8 Motel in Lamar, MO (about an hour south of Kansas City). We drove the next day to Mason City, IA and spent the night with my sister and her husband. We then drove on to Albert Lea, MN, where we had lunch with four of the first people who ever attended one of our IA Bible studies. At the time, we decided the reason the Bible study kept going was that they were just a bit more ignorant of the Scriptures than I was.
Then, it was on to St. Paul. There, we enjoyed a large group dinner that was followed by a question/answer time. Saturday was the all-day seminar at Concordia, which was filled to standing room only (and what a richly rewarding experience)! That Sunday we taught at the Bethesda Bible Church and had a great time teaching and relaxing in-between. The next stop was the campgrounds in WI for the retreat. We checked into our cabin and then enjoyed a delicious picnic supper of hot dogs with all the trimmings. After supper, we had our first meeting, and Pastor Mark led the singing with his wife Cathy on the keyboard, Cathy's brother, Al, on the guitar, and Dr. Carol Salvage (who flew in from Boston MA) on the French Horn. Such singing! It was a little taste of Heaven! After retreat goodbyes, we drove up to spend the next couple of days with Todd, Kim and our four grandkids in Duluth. One evening, we were privileged to go out to a friend's summer home on Lake Nebagoman and be part of a pot-luck supper and weekly Bible class. (I forgot to mention that Todd, Kim and the kids came to the Cities for the seminar and were with us the whole time. It was their first seminar attendance.)
After our R& R at Todd's, we headed back down to Cokato (where we taught Saturday PM, and Sunday and Monday AM and PM classes), then went on to Wilmar for Tuesday night class. Everywhere we went was so great - the fellowship of believers is wonderful! Finally, it was back to the ranch by Friday to get ready to wean the spring-born calves. That included vaccinating the calves for shipping fever, and turning them back out with their mamas until the shot took hold.
We did get all of that done before leaving again - this time for TX and NM. Each teaching stop was a great time in the Word with other servants of God. Between teaching destinations, we took a stroll through beautiful Carlsbad Caverns. We returned home and Greg and I began weaning calves. Everything went so well that, in two days, we had them all weaned and in the home corral with their 2nd set of shots! We are just waiting, now, to ship them to western Oklahoma to wheat pasture. As you can tell, there is not a dull moment and God has blessed us so much! And, once again, Iris and I are so thankful for you, our listeners, and your most generous support (whether by financial support or supporting us in prayer) of our little ministry. In His Grace, Les
Bookkeeper’s/Secretary's note: As always, 100% of your undesignated dollar goes for TV and radio time, with the money from sales of products used to pay all expenses. Please help us out by writing on the memo line of your check if it is a gift or a payment for products (or if payment for an invoice - please write the invoice #). We really appreciate it. Also, an order blank is not needed - you can just send a note or write your order on your check’s memo line and we will know it is an order. Please remember to allow at least 2-3 weeks for product delivery. Also, we have an automatic list for those of you wanting the newest books, audios or videos coming out - so ask us about that if you are not on it, but would like to be. There will be a new book coming out every 3 months as long as Les keeps his health and the Lord does not return.
We have Book #52 here, which finishes Hebrews and Book #53 is in the works (starting James) - it will be out in February. If you need a year-end donation summary, be sure to call or write for one. You can get these anytime after December 31st, or after the last donation of the year, but you will need to call or write to request one then, as I have no way of remembering if you have previously asked me to do so. Also, if anybody would like extra return envelopes, just ask.
Per several requests, here is a list of the salvation verses given on one of the shows about two months ago: Romans 3:23-27, Romans 6:23, Romans 1:16-19, I Corinthians 15:1-4, Romans 5:8-11, Romans 4:5, Ephesians 1:13-14, I Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Romans10:8-13.
Special products!!! We now have the Concordia 2002 seminar on video. It is Revelation Part 1 and is about 5 hours long for $30.00. We also have the audio of this seminar on CD - it will play on any CD player or play in the computer. It is on a set of 4 CD's with the set priced for $ 25.00 - this includes delivery.
We have the Question-Answer book in stock. We think this is a great product. Paul Hartley has put together this 360-page book that has 90 frequently asked questions. He has answered them using Les's little books. It is a very useful tool and a good book to have around. Only $11.00 delivered.
We also have a new promo CD ( for computer use only) that has the Question-Answer book on it as well as book 1, part 1(video format) and the Les and Iris story with salvation verses (this is also in video format). This CD has a King James Version of the Bible on it, as well as a place to click that will hook you up to the Internet and take you right to the Les Feldick web page. A great little thing to have around and we are selling it for $10.00 delivered. Remember, you can order by phone by calling 1-800-369-7856.
Coming Soon! Hopefully in the near future we will offer the audio cassette version of Les's teaching on CD's. (We would appreciate some feedback from all of you as to interest in the CD format!) We plan to offer each book in a snug 6-CD holder pack that will have the same teachings as a cassette album does now. In response to numerous inquires, yes, we are looking at DVD's, but they are not in near-future plans yet.
Last but not least, remember we are a very small ministry - with no full-time employees - so if you are calling and get the answering machine, just leave a clear message and we will get back to you - or a good time to call to get a person is Monday - Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm CST.

Come enjoy Les’s Bible teaching and fellowship with believers on the high seas!
What In The World
Never, in all of human history, with the exception of Christ's earthly ministry, has there been such living proof that the Bible is the only true Word of God. I'm referring, of course, to the Nation of Israel. Common sense would tell (even the most ignorant), that the Jews should have disappeared from the stage of history hundreds of years ago. But, the Word of God is sure, and now, according to prophecy, they are back in their homeland against all odds.
Every nation in the world, except America (for which we have been singularly blessed), opposed them every step of the way, and still do today. But, in spite of the hatred and opposition, they are back - their Hebrew language resurrected, and they are in the world's headlines nearly every day.When we read of the vicious hatred and deeds of the Arabs against the Jews, we wonder how they get away with it. But, like Haman in the book of Esther, the Arab's day is coming.
My space is limited or I would like to quote more verses, but this is just one. Ezek. 35:2-5: "Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir (the Arab world) and prophesy against it, And say unto it, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O mount Seir, I am against thee, and I will stretch out mine hand against thee, and I will make thee most desolate. I will lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate and shalt know that I am the Lord (not Allah). Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the blood of the Children of Israel...." Please read the rest of Chapter 35 and on into Chapters 36 and 37. You will no longer wonder what will happen to the Muslims.
The newsletters that are sent to reader's by regular mail always contain the upcoming seminar schedule, the TV and radio schedule, the class schedule, and the ministry's contact information. But on this web site, all of this information is kept current on their own pages at these four links. To avoid confusion, the older information that is less up to date has been removed from the newsletters that are placed on-line.
