We so appreciate all your prayers for our Schoof family in Africa. God has protected Angela and Gregg and their six children all the way, and they are safe in Uganda and in their rented house. They had some anxious days that week, but the prayers of God’s people were very present! Now we are praying that they will be able to get their container and their furniture out of Rwanda. They need to get their long-term visas before they can get their things. Thank you for praying!
My first wife Judy, the Storm kids’ mom, went home to be with the Lord in June 2001. This September 25, 2019, Judy’s mom, Nora Wade, joined her in Heaven. We were able to attend her funeral in Elkhart, Indiana, with five of my six children and their families. It was really a celebration of Nora’s life. She loved her Lord and served Him faithfully through the years. We FaceTimed Angela and her family in Rwanda so that they could be a part of her grandma’s funeral. She then was able to see and talk with her siblings and some of her mom’s family.
Storms and Highfills
While we were out West, we were blessed to be able to visit two of Jary Lynn’s sons and their wives, Darrin and Beth Highfill and Dave and Kelley Highfill, and their families. We were thankful that Dave and Kelley were able to drive us to Denver to catch our flight to Nora’s funeral.
September and October went by so quickly! We were in 11 states: Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, and Indiana. We helped 16 churches, traveling 4,559 miles, and we fixed 31 buses. We had the privilege of preaching in 9 of the churches and encouraging the folks to keep their Bus Ministries rolling. Our prayer is that more bus workers, bus captains, CDL drivers, and bus mechanics would step up and pledge to serve faithfully for the sake of those who have no other way to get to Sunday school! “But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:14)
A Bus Kid’s Greatest Wish
At Grace Baptist Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, I went with Brother Cruz on his bus route. I had the joy of giving the Gospel to Becky, a parent of one of his bus kids. She bowed her head and trusted Christ as her Saviour. What a joy it is for kids to see their mom accept the Lord. A bus kid’s most important prayer request is that their parents would get saved or that they would come to church.
Thank you for your love for the Bus Ministry and for the bus families. We so appreciate your prayers, and those of you who support our Keep the Buses Rolling Ministry. Please know that we do not take it lightly. Our prayers are with you as well.
Yours for souls,
Warren & Jary Lynn Storm
