November 2017 — “We
had some special services
to honor veterans and for Thanksgiving.

I recently had the opportunity to go to a
Navajo boarding school in Fort Wingate,
New Mexico, where my friend preached to
the children, both boys and girls separately.

I see how this is a great opportunity to reach
children with the Gospel and the school
allows the Bible to be preached! Please pray
for us as we would like to do this.”

“We have asked you to continue praying
for Junior and Elisa and their daughter,
Kimberly. All three have received the Lord
as Savior but are still unable to attend church
because of their work schedule. However,
they continue to grow as we do weekly Bible
studies with them. They are very encouraged
and Junior told me he wants to be baptized
in the river. Pray for all who will go down
into the river as the water temperatures are
getting colder as the days go by.”

“Discipleship Class:
Graduation time coming up in October for
five ladies. It has been two years and it seems
like only a few days! These ladies have truly
grown in the Lord! Each has a tremendous
burden for her family and for the lost around
them. PRAY for these precious ladies to
have a ministry of discipleship, making a
difference in their homes, churches, and in
their communities for Christ and eternity.”

involved in a five-car accident
on the I-15 Freeway that
by God’s mercy I walked away from with
minor injuries. My car on the other hand
was totaled. The driver of a semi-tractor
(18-wheeler) fell asleep at the wheel,
crashing through four vehicles as we were
in heavy and stalled traffic…. We also had
three baptisms since the last prayer letter was

August/September 2017 — “We baptized a
junior girl the first of September in the river.

We had two to baptize, but one young lady
was sick and unable to go into the water.

Also, Grace Baptist Church in Johnsonburg
baptized four teenagers in the Clarion River.

I attended the services with Pastor Lockard,
the new pastor…. This is the church I helped
start several years ago. The church has been
struggling for several years not having a
permanent pastor. Now God is working in
this area; it’s a very needy area. It’s a blessing
to see God bless after many years of sowing
and reaping.”
