What an amazing month of watching God work in our family and ministry! I’m so blessed to be able to serve such a wonderful, loving, and awesome God like our God! This month has been filled with His blessings upon our lives.
While visiting a pastor friend, Nathan Gregory and his family in Michigan, I was honored to preach at their VBS and church on Sunday. There were a total of 4 professions of faith in Jesus Christ during the three days of Vacation Bible School!
Then, as we were driving from Michigan to Duluth, MN for our next meeting, Eli, our middle son asked Jesus to save him and forgive him of his sins! We have been praying for Eli and talking with him about salvation for over a year now! One of the most joyous occasions in the life of a parent is when their child trusts Christ as their personal Savior!
We had a wonderful time seeing another pastor friend and his family, Scott Hopkins in East Bethel, MN the following week for their missions conference! God worked and moved in our hearts and we are grateful! I believe God will continue to use that time to challenge and encourage folks for the cause of world evangelism.
I would like you all to pray with us for the following:
- Our furlough travels. As fall creeps around the corner, missions conference season is picking up as well! We are blessed to have several meetings, and ask that you pray with us for traveling mercies!
- Our support! This is important! Before the end of our furlough, we need to raise 25% more than what we raised for South Africa. Please pray that the needed funds will come in before March 2020!
- A new setup fund. When we learned of our visa rejection in South Africa, we donated all of our furniture that was in storage to Camp Rhino for immediate use. Our hope was that we could be a blessing to that ministry though we would not be there in person. Saying that, we will need to raise a new set up fund for Argentina to purchase furniture, and appliance for our new field. Please pray with us concerning this need!
Thank you as always for your continued love, prayers, and support for our family!
