Our deputation trail continued on in the month of June. By God’s grace, we were able to present our ministry to the following churches: Greenville Baptist Temple of Greenville, Ohio; Columbia Road Baptist Church of North Olmsted, Ohio; Inter-Lakes Baptist Church of Delton, Michigan; Temple Baptist of Franklin, Pennsylvania; and Revival Baptist Church of Scranton, Pennsylvania. In the month of June, we traveled at least 2,539 miles. Please continue to pray for our health and traveling mercies. We praise the Lord that our minivan is back on the road and that we were able to use it before going on our trip to Pennsylvania. Please pray for the Lord to give me wisdom, as we are shopping around right now for a pull-behind camper trailer to use while we are out on deputation. This will give us more flexibility, and it will save us money on hotels. It will also give our children more stability in their lives.
In June, my whole family had the opportunity to help out and attend our junior camp this year. This was our children’s first camp! I got to go as a counselor and a speaker. My wife was able to help out in various places. On Wednesday night, I preached to the children about allowing God to use them by surrendering their lives to Him. We had a great response that night! A camper in my group felt the Lord was calling him to be a preacher. Two young girls received Jesus Christ as their Saviour that night too!
In July, we will have a little bit of a break. We will spend some time with our family for Independence Day, while celebrating Gwen’s third birthday. We’ll be involved in our home church, Lakecrest Baptist Church of Waterford, Michigan. We’ll be attending our mission board’s Missions University. This year, my wife and I will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary, and we’ll be going on a trip to California. We hope to schedule some meetings for 2020 while we are there. Then on the last Sunday of July, we’ll be starting back with meetings, with our first meeting in Black River, New York. Please pray for us, as we will still be busy.
We already have some meetings booked for 2020, but in July, I will be heavily booking and scheduling for the 2020 calendar. Please pray for the churches that we have already visited but have not received a response yet in terms of financial partnership. We would love to get to the field as soon as we can. Thank you to those of you who already support us prayerfully and financially. If you haven’t committed yet to supporting us, please don’t forget us, and prayerfully consider partnering with us in this great endeavor to reach Australia with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Your servant in Christ,
