In order to get my CDL renewed this July, I needed to take a stress test. It was a necessary checkup because of a previous stent that I had received in 2008. The test showed an irregularity in the EKG, so the next day I took a nuclear stress test. The cardiologist asked me to get an angiogram to check it further, and when I did, he found a blockage that required a stent. So I am now the proud owner of two stents. Praise the Lord! The problem was revealed and fixed, and I am back to work and feeling great! “It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23)
“Go ye . . . .” (Mark 16:15)
In June while we were at Amazing Grace Baptist Church in Kansas City, Kansas, Pastor Olivas’ wife Patti and my wife had the privilege of seeing Alexis, a 20-year-old mother of two bus kids, trust Christ as her personal Saviour. What a joy that was for them! Then in July when I was working on a bus for Pastor Curtis McMiller at Foundations Biblical Baptist Church in Kenosha, Wisconsin, a young man named Joshua was just passing by the bus. We struck up a conversation, and when I shared the Gospel with Joshua, he bowed his head and asked the Lord Jesus to save him and take him to Heaven someday when he dies. Then he promised that he would come to church. It is such a joy to tell people about Jesus when they tenderly receive Him and His forgiving love!
2015 FBC Youth Conference
At this year’s Youth Conference, our Jack Hyles Auditorium was packed. They had to set chairs out all over the auditorium. The theme was “Get Smart.” They had red, yellow, blue, and orange teams. The speakers were excellent, and the games were great! Six of our grandchildren were in attendance. All three of Jacque and Jeff Swartz’ children were there, and Angela and Gregg Schoof’s three oldest children were there. Angela and Gregg’s Caleb celebrated his 15th birthday that Wednesday. So at the fireworks that night, Pastor Wilkerson had him come up to the platform on the dock, and he had the whole crowd sing “Happy Birthday” to Caleb. That was so exciting for Caleb. Our pastor is an amazingly thoughtful and caring person.
In these two months, we traveled over 2,200 miles, helping 22 churches. We worked on 35 buses, not counting the ones we helped fix over the phone. We had the privilege of seeing 14 people trust Christ as their personal Saviour; 4 of those were parents of Bus Kids. The kids are overjoyed when their mom and dad trust Christ. Their two main prayers are that their parents get saved and that they come to church.
Our Main Prayer Requests
Pray that (1) more churches will start or revive their Bus Ministries, and that (2) more bus workers, drivers, teachers, and mechanics would make the Bus Ministry their priority for God and for those precious souls. We appreciate the Bus Ministries all over the country and all over the world. Thank you, those of you who are our prayer and financial supporters, for partnering with us to help and encourage the churches to increase their Bus Ministries and to reach the bus kids and their families for God, helping to change their lives.
If you have any bus or Bus Ministry needs or questions regarding the Bus Ministry, please feel free to call us at 219-689-0011. We want to be a help to you any way we can.
Yours for souls,
Warren & Jary Lynn Storm
