Our deputation trail continues in the month of August, even through the pandemic. Truly, we’ve all been affected by this pandemic, but the Lord continues to bless and provide for our needs. Two of our children, Rhys and Elin, tested positive for COVID-19, but we praise the Lord that they remained asymptomatic the whole time we were quarantined. Please pray for those affected!
We were scheduled to be on the West Coast for meetings in August; however, due to the restrictions in that area of the country, all of our meetings there were canceled. Despite the oppositions, Harvest Baptist Church in Lodi, California, still allowed us to present our ministry via a prerecorded video. We praise the Lord for that opportunity!
In April, a scheduled conference we were to be in canceled due to the pandemic, but at the time, we were not able to reschedule to their new Missions Conference date in August. Because our schedule for August opened up, we were able to be a part of the Missions Conference at Fellowship Baptist Church in Madison, Virginia. I had the opportunity to preach and present our ministry there. The sweet people there spoiled us! We praise the Lord for that opportunity!
Our next meeting brought us to our home state of Michigan. I had the honor and privilege to teach, preach, and present our ministry to Bible Baptist Church of Oxford, Michigan. Our meeting after that was at Lighthouse Baptist Church of Ashtabula, Ohio, where I was able to preach and present our ministry. We’ve enjoyed our time with all the churches where we’ve been able to present our ministry. With canceled meetings, I was a little discouraged, but the Lord showed Himself faithful again!
We want to welcome our new supporter in August, Victory Baptist Church of Cocoa, Florida! We had a great time at their Missions Conference, and we are excited to be partnering with them now to win the lost of Australia. This brings us to 75% of our needed financial support! Please pray for Mindy’s spousal visa that we applied for in July. With the new processing times, we anticipate Mindy’s visa being approved sometime in the summer of next year, which really is great timing for us. We have a long journey ahead of us in September, and we covet your prayers for traveling mercies. Please also pray for our health, especially during this time. Thank you so much for your prayers and support!
Your servant in Christ,
