First, A Note of Thanks
How can Cheryl and I thank you all enough for praying for us these past few weeks. For a couple who have never had any medical problems to speak of, the bypass surgery was a tremendous leap. We had great doctors and we owe much to your prayers and love for us. Thank you very much.
Back To Work
The month of March I have enjoyed getting back on the road and meeting with high school and college kids and families about reaching those who’ve never heard. There are so many opportunities for people to go to the regions beyond to proclaim the Gospel of the grace of God. Please pray that we would find the right people who would be interested in this and dedicated enough to give their lives for those who will never hear.
I went to Dallas Seminary for their annual missions conference and had a wonderful time and met some great folks. Then Cheryl and I were involved in some Perspectives classes in Newton, Great Bend and Hutchinson, KS.
What a privilege to share our heart and experience with others who appreciate and are interested in what the Lord is doing in the world. After that, I went to Frontier School of the Bible in La Grange, WY to share in a couple of classes and two chapels. What a privilege.
This Month (April)
Right after Easter, I will head to Tulsa, OK to share with some youth at New Beginnings Church in Bixby, OK about the needs of tribal people and hope that we can see some young folks give serious consideration to missionary work as a career choice.
After, Oklahoma, a student from Moody Bible Institute will be flying down to Wichita and we will be traveling to our Missionary Training Center in Camdenton, MO. He has enrolled for the Fall semester and wants to see the facilities and training. He comes from a family of missionaries with Camino Global and the parents have raised their children well.
The following week, I will be heading to Burleson & Arlington, TX to teach Perspectives again. It has been a couple of years since I have been down there so I look forward to it. I will close out the month by teaching Perspectives in Topeka and Manhattan, KS and possibly heading to Moody Bible Institute.
It seems that opportunities never cease and we thank the Lord that we are still able to be used this side of Heaven.
We have our car!
Concerning our vehicle fund, we have our car. Thank you all for your kindness shown in gifts and prayers. We are hoping that this will last us at least 8 years. I think that we were able to get a better one than we thought we would get. Covenant Auto Sales, out of Richmond, IN has a division of their business called Missionary Auto & Truck Service.
They find good used cars for missionaries, pastors and other ministry people. Our family, including our children has now bought 6 cars from them. Check them out at www.mats.org. They are a great ministry. In any event, thanks for helping in this matter. We do appreciate you all.
We are grateful for you all
All of you have been an inspiration to our family. We know that it isn’t easy supporting someone in this economy and we truly appreciate the sacrifice that each of you make in supporting us, housing us when we are on the road, praying for us and just being a blessing to us in so many ways. All we can say is thanks.
Keep the faith all. We love you and are praying for you also.
That we might know Him and proclaim Him to all. Remember the resurrection!
