Joseph Elwell Prayer Letter:  The Goodness of the Lord in the Land of the Living“I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” (Psalm 27:13)

We could become very discouraged if all we saw was what is happening in our government. We could become complacent if all we had to view was the accomplishments of the world. How great is it really to win a Super Bowl, and what does it all really mean? We could become lethargic if we followed the world’s pattern of work ethic today; but, oh, to see the hand of the Lord and the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living keeps us excited and motivated and working for the Lord.

We were able to be in 7 churches this spring, and God allowed us to see over 40 people come to believe in Jesus for their salvation. We got to see over 10 follow the Lord in baptism. All but one of the churches went forward in their Faith Promise giving. God was so good to keep me safe on the roadway. This past spring we got to help birth two new churches. God really has shown Himself strong in the land of the living.

Please pray for the Liberty Baptist Church in Yuma. We want to start a Bus Ministry. If anyone would want to help support this ministry, please contact us. Even a one-time offering would be a blessing to help us secure a bus. Please continue to pray for this church in securing leadership. Please pray for men on deputation to start churches. We have three men who are raising support to start churches in our country. God bless you as you continue to serve our Lord.
