I don’t think I can ever remember a year that has seemed to go by so quickly! The summer is nearly over, and soon we will be “full speed ahead” with autumn activities. Though it’s been a fast-moving summer, much has been accomplished. So far, we have had 113 visitors in church and 67 souls saved for the year. We also recently baptized 4 people on a Sunday morning. Another additional fast-moving topic would be our fast move into a new house. Please note the new address below.
Vacation Bible School
We really enjoyed our week with the kids, presenting the Gospel and teaching Bible stories. Over 40 children registered or visited throughout the week. The folks of the church turned out in force to be first-rate helpers on our Holiday Bible Club Team. Daniel did a great job in the skits as “Tracker Jack.” All the Solt boys were involved, and it is always exciting to watch them serve the Lord. The resulting 11 salvation decisions made it all worthwhile.
It’s hard to believe that we have an 18-year-old son. That gives you an idea how long we have lived and worked in this country, since Daniel was born here in 1997. We are excited that he decided to attend our old alma mater, Hyles–Anderson College. He is now “plugged in” to the college and the First Baptist Church of Hammond. Daniel has joined Division 5, which was the same Chicago bus division that Mary Beth and I started on in college—how ironic. He’s even living on the same dormitory floor that I lived on for over six years. What a blessing to find our kids enjoying the same blessings that we had over two decades ago!
I hope that many are still praying for Brother Darrell Moore as he continues his knee surgery and recovery. Our church here was praying and hoping that he would be able to be with us in September to preach and counsel us in our ministry.
Please continue to pray for grace and strength for Mary Beth’s mom, Nyna Kaminer. She is under hospice care at home and battles daily with pain, mobility, and breathing difficulties. My father, Ron Solt, is struggling with dementia and Mom (Anne) with the challenges of being his caregiver. The long distance certainly weighs on us at times like these.
If we could open the future windows of Heaven, would we see the faces of those saved as a result of the missionary endeavors in which we have invested prayer and support? Absolutely! Amen!
Yours for souls,
The Solt Family
Dave & Mary Beth, Daniel, Joshua, & Jeremy
