Short update

Sorry for the long silence. Life has been busy the last couple weeks. Two Sundays ago, I was able to share my ministry at Agape Baptist Church in Stockton, MO. I also sent out letters to 16 Christian colleges. A friend allowed me to print letters to send to churches, which save me quite a bit of money. it is fun to see God provide for the needs of the ministry.

Last week, my dad was given time off to rest and regain his health. We are traveling to visit with family for the next few weeks. Hopefully all the country air will give him a boost. :-) I can already see a difference in his energy levels. Pray for wisdom in decisions he has to make in regards to his future health.

Please pray that during these next few weeks, I can share my ministry in the churches we visit. Pray also for wisdom in choosing tickets to go to China. I have to buy a roundtrip, and I need one that can be changed in case I decide to stay longer in the country. Pray that i can get a 10 year visa approved. This will allow me to travel in and out of China as needed without needing to renew the visa every time.

Please pray for my brother Josh and my brother-in-law Phil. Both were working, and each hurt a foot. Both are needing to get xrays... Pray nothing is broken or torn.

Quick Update

I have had a lot of fun over the past couple of weeks with my family. We have had several fishing trips. Yesterday, I caught 5  bass. Three were small, but two were as long is the tip of my hand to the crease of my elbow. They both weighed over a pound. Since we already have a freezer full, I threw them back.

Tonight, I was able to share my ministry with the Agape Baptist Church here in Stockton, MO. God always has things happen on His timetable, not mine. My prayer is that the people in each church where I present will see the need for this type of ministry, and either they will give to help me keep going, or they will decide to go themselves.

Special Prayer Requests:
My cousin, Hope and her family
My sister, Janna and her family
My dad
Answers from churches and colleges where I have requested to share my ministry

Home Sweet Home

Due to a storm, I was without internet for a couple of days. I have been home a few days now, and life has been busy with fun things. I have been shopping with my mom, had coffee with my sis-in-law and nieces, spent time with my other sis-in-law and her parents, went fishing with my parents, and several other things. Today was good day in church with three very good sermons.

The ministry here is gearing up for their rodeo and fireworks on Tuesday. This always a fun day with lots of visitors present. Please pray that God will use the Round-up Ministries program to bring people to Christ.

Please pray that I can begin lining up churches with whom I can share my ministry. The church here is planning for me to share either this week or next. I also, sent out letters to Christian colleges. Please pray that I can present to the students and former students who are in the college churches. My goal is to encourage more people to do what I do.

Please pray for my dad's health and decisions he must make in regards to his health. Please keep my sister Janna and her family in prayer as they continue to battle different health issues.
