Thanks for praying for
itineration travel safety—we don’t take it for granted. We
returned to SoCal a little over a week ago where we will base out
of for a while.
At Salem, OR Peoples Church, Yvonne’s home church growing up, both
Yvonne and the other missionary (from a sensitive country) who
shared in the Missions Convention service are products from the
church! We echo what Pastor Scott Erickson (pictured with wife
Bonnie and us) said to encourage the current children and youth
workers: “your labor is never in vain.” Amen! As we always say,
our heroes are the ones who serve with the kids!
While in Oregon we enjoyed
visiting all of Yvonne’s brothers and families, plus joining in
some of what they are involved with. Dan Sheets coordinates an
open-air daily feeding ministry in conjunction with Downtown
Salem Homeless Community and HMNS.
In St. Louis Pastor Blue
Seeley and husband Brad invited us to minister at the STL Deaf church. Pastor Blue
explained that the deaf community appreciate learning via dramas
and visual aids. So we accommodated her request to briefly appear
as superheroes. Thanks to the church for the prayers, generous
love offering, and making us feel very special.
at Los Angeles Grace Assembly, Pastor Earl Coley and worship team
closed the service following my message from Mark 10:13-16 with
the Sunday School chorus: “Jesus loves the little children, all
the children of the world…” How true it is that all children are
precious in His sight, and it’s our privilege to make Jesus’
passion to let the children come to Him be our cause as well.
On fund-raising progress, we’ve gained a little ground. Thanks to
the Lord and many of you for making it all possible! Please join
us in praying for additional funds needed:
$ 1440 monthly budget
$23,000 cash budget
has been sharing her testimony of how the Lord brought her through
open heart surgery last year. Psalm 91 was such a tremendous
comfort, giving her peace during the anticipation. Appears here
with Yvonne’s personalization:
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”…
Yvonne has set her love upon Me, therefore I will deliver her; I will set her on
high, because she has known My name. She shall call
upon Me, and I will answer her; I will be with
her in trouble; I will deliver
her and honor her. With long life I
will satisfy her, And show her My
91:1-2, 14-16 (NKJV)
