  18. Hi,

    I visited your sports blog Preach Stephen.Com-Pastor Stephen F. Smith at https://pastorssmith.wordpress.com/. You have really great articles and I’m glad I found your site.

    I would like to know if you’re accepting guest blog posts, I’d like to send you an original blog entry on basketball which I think would fit nicely with your site. I’m doing this for free but would only require 1 backlink in the article to my site.

    Please let me know if you’re interested in publishing this basketball blog entry so I can send it to you for publication soon.

    Thank you

    Shirly Giagone

  19. I don’t know how much of sports blog this blog is, but I may publish what you send. This blog’s primary purpose is to promote the message of Jesus Christ!

  20. Blessings, Pastor Smith! Your site is always rich with information. I have searched many things and have been able to find them here. I was surprised to see a reference to Apostle Benjamin Smith, who is what we would call our grandfather in the ministry. He is the spiritual father of Pastor Christopher Michael Barnes, who was pastoring at Hopewell Baptist Church in Carbondale, IL, but now is pastoring at Bush Grove in Memphis, TN. You can check out my blog here on wordpress, worshipper26 or my site at http://www.myspace.com/g26world, or even http://www.youtube.com/worshipper26.
    Blessings on you, your ministry and your family!
