Family – Two weeks ago, our son-in-law was voted in as the pastor of Elmer Baptist Church, in Elmer Missouri! He had been asking the Lord for more opportunities to preach, and God definitely opened the door for him. Here’s a photo of Zach and Amy in front of the little country church where Zach is now the pastor and Amy is the pastor’s wife! I guess you could say our buttons are bursting just a little bit. To find out more, you can read Amy’s blog http://amylovestortillas.wordpress.com/author/amylovestortillas/
Luke continues as a chaplain intern at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and continues to press forward for a full-time chaplaincy position. In the meantime, God is using him in the lives of others. Shane is finishing up his last year of high school. Shane plans to study at the local community college next year on an A+ scholarship which he earned tutoring at his elementary school.
Ministry – James continues his ministry travels. Recently, he spent several days at Huntington University in Indiana. He met with a number of students with one couple deciding to be church planters with NTM. They already started the application process. James came home exhausted, but pleased.
Another huge praise for us is the opportunity for James to share at another Christian university here in Missouri. This may not sound like a big deal, but James has pursued getting into this school almost since we moved to St. Peters, but for a number of reasons it never worked out. He will go there for the first time in two weeks. In the meantime he is visiting several other colleges. Please pray God will use these trips to raise up missionaries.
Thanks so much for your prayers and support of our ministry with New Tribes Mission over the years. We truly thank God for the opportunity to serve Him and for our health and happiness.
