Dear Pastors, Friends, and Prayer Partners:
Our “Fall” schedule began last week with a revival meeting at First Baptist Church of Land O’Lakes, FL and with the addition of our newest Evangelism Intern, Nicholas Anderson. It was a great week and I know that many of you must have been praying for us as we served the church there. Pastor David Peterson is a fine pastor and has lead the church for many years to be a strong fundamental church and a very missions minded and soul-conscious one as well. I preached five times to the church family and three times to the student body of their Christian School. Nicholas preached once to the student body and four times in the Children’s Revival Hour. We were happy that several prayed to be saved and that many believers evidenced a genuine reviving as well. Many mentioned that God had renewed their desire to see friends and neighbors and loved ones come to faith in Christ. Please pray that the church will continue to see great days of ministry in the coming weeks.
We are able to be home this week and it has been good to get caught up on so many things. These weeks are rare and are very special to all of us. We were able to be in our home church, spend some time together as a family, and get to know Nicholas a bit better as well. Bethlie was able to come home as well. She has been away from us because her mother, Mrs. Linda Dennis, has another battle with cancer and has had to have a hip and femur replacement surgery in the process. She is currently in a Rehab center so Bethlie was able to be here with us while we were home this week. When Mom is finished with rehab, Bethlie will return to Ohio to help take care of her as she recovers.
Here are some prayer requests:
Please pray for our revival next week. We begin Sunday morning in Odenville, AL at New Life Baptist Church! Y’all should come join us for a service or two if you can.
Please pray for Bethlie and the rest of us as we work through this time of her needing to be with Mom.
Please add Nicholas to your prayer list. He is doing a good job and I expect it to only get better. We are blessed to add him to the team.
Pray for all of our other needs as well - a few medical bills, a college bill for our Matthew, and some various needs here and there.
Thank you for partnering with us in prayer. We love and appreciate you all very, very much.
Your sincere friend,
