November 2018 Thankful Greetings
How nice to visit with you again! We had a wonderful time at the Missions Conference in Tampa last month. The people were so welcoming and friendly. Every missionary was personally prayed for. It was very encouraging.
Let us know if you would be interested in having us come and share the work of Ethnos360 in your church or Bible Study group. We would love to come.
We counted up our days, and we were home for 11 days last month! It was a very busy time! Thanks for praying that we would have the strength and grace of God to continue on in our ministries here in Florida. We are so thankful for the strength of the Lord. Through His power we can “run and not be weary, and walk and not faint!”
Our children are doing well. We rejoice to see the little grandchildren growing and learning new things all the time, as well. Beka and Cody plan to move to Florida this month, so they will be a bit closer for awhile. Their baby comes in February. Tim and Charity’s little Amelia is 3 months old now, and she managed to roll herself over already! Amy and Hector (Still in Oregon) are traveling and visiting folks. Let them know if you would like to have them come and share in your church! Little Elena is starting to pull up and push things around (beginning stages of walking). Look out world! We love seeing Brett and Debby and kids almost every weekend. Those kids are growing way too fast!! David and Joice are pretty close by us in DeLand, but we would love to see them more!
Please pray with us to have continued wisdom as we work with our missionaries as they transition to retirement, or other ministries. We also track them as they move from field to home, or home to field. Address changes are a daily part of our work time. We also communicate with supporters and churches to give them needed information about their missionaries. We have plenty to do! Our department is waiting for our new software to be completed. There will be changes in the air then as we learn a new system of recordkeeping, and data upkeep.
Thanks so much for caring for us, and helping us in our ministries, through prayer. Sometimes our lives may change, and our activities may take us new directions (like to south Florida every weekend!) but GOD is always faithful! We praise Him for enabling us and putting us into the ministry He has chosen for us. (2 Corinthains 3:5,6)
We appreciate you folks, and would love to hear from you, too! Feel free to email or drop us a note! Or even a Facebook message is great! Have a Very Happy Thanksgiving!
With our appreciation.
George and Linda Heckman
