A Busy Month

October has been filled with travelling back and forth from my parent's to my sister"s, Joy. She gave birth a little early to a beautiful baby girl, Ireland Hope. After a long stay in the hospital, she was able to come home, and has been doing well adjusting to her noisy siblings and home life. Joy has been doing well for the most part, but could use prayers that she regains her strength quickly.

God has been good to our church here. We have seen many visitors, I and another lady were voted in as new members, and there are several more waiting to be voted in. We just started our fall program, and so far the ladies are winning.

Please pray for our harvest party on Wednesday. Pray that people from the community will come and hear the Gospel while they enjoy the games...

Please continue to pray for our housing situation. Pray that the loan can be completed and the papers can be signed soon. There is a lot the Devil is trying to do to discourage my dad through this situation.

Please pray as I continue to work out details for next year regarding my missions ministry. There are so many needs, and it is hard to know where I should start. Pray God opens only the doors I should go through.

I do not remember if I posted this before, but our family has had the blessing of five of the grandkids trusting Christ over the last few months, and four of them have been baptized.

Family news

So much has been going on the lives of my family this week. Many of you have prayed for my sister Joy who was expecting. She had Ireland Hope yesterday at about 2:50 pm. She had been in and out of the hospital with labor pains for four days. We thought we might deliver Ireland at home, but her husband made it back and switched her to an ambulance very quickly. Labor was long, but the baby and mom are doing well. The baby has had a couple Brady episodes and is a month and a day early, so pray there are no further episodes or complications.

My sister Janna's little boy, Emmett, fell and broke his collar bone. Pray that it heals quickly with no complications.

My sister Julie's pregnancy is going well, but keep her in prayer too.

My dad's family have had three deaths in the last week. One was unexpected. Pray that people will come to Christ at the funerals.

Technology Glitch

I apologize for being almost a month late in posting. I had created a post last week, and I thought I posted it, but it is not on this website or my Facebook.

Life has been busy since my arrival home. I have become involved in my dad's church here in Maine. Currently, I am playing the piano for the services, and I will be helping play for the kids Sunday school starting tomorrow.

Two weeks ago, my cousin in Alabama passed away, so we made an emergency trip down for the funeral. Although it was a sad time, it was so good to see family I haven't seen in three years. I was also able to spend time with three of my sisters and some of my some of my  nieces and nephews. The funeral was a time of rejoicing more than sorrow because my cousin had been wheelchair bound all her life, but she still had an impact on many people coming to Christ.

Last week, I stayed with my sister and her kids while I sent my parents on a trip to Prince Edward Island for my mom's birthday. I enjoyed spending time with my sister and her husband playing games and playing with my nieces and nephews.

This week, I hope to finally focus on scheduling meetings to share my ministry. Please pray that God will open doors. My main goal is to encourage other people to do what I do. Pray for my dad and the church here in Maine. There have been visitors almost every week, and several people have asked to join the church. Continue to pray for my two sisters who are pregnant and my sister who has the brain  bleed.
