Spring is one of the most beautiful times of the year, especially after a rain. The fields in their shades of green and brown and the black tree trunks contrasting with the brilliant red buds and blossoms of pink and white have a rich freshness that only God can create. It reminds us of our rebirth when we trusted Jesus and He washed us white as snow. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (II Corinthians 5:17)
Jesus Saves: We had a sweet experience when Pastor Aaron Wright and I were following up on visitors to Liberty Baptist Church. When we shared the Gospel at one house, Heather and her daughter Emily and Emily’s friend Tazie all three accepted Christ as their own personal Saviour. “. . . there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.” (Luke 15:10)
In March and April, we had the privilege of seeing 32 souls trust Christ; 10 of those were parents of bus kids. I preached and taught 19 different times. In one Sunday school class and Junior Church, 9 children accepted Jesus as their Saviour. What a blessed time that was!
God’s Protection: Traveling 2,547 miles to 18 churches, we helped fix 66 buses; 10 of those buses were not running at all. We were able to help the mechanics fix them and put them back on the road.
If you have a newer bus that has an engine light on, please call me at 219-689-0011 before you take it to a shop. We have had several churches call with problems on their newer buses. By helping them read the trouble codes, we were able to help them fix the buses over the phone. Crossroads Baptist Church in Dothan, Alabama, took one of their buses to the shop, and they told them it needed a transmission overhaul. While we were there this spring, we found that it just needed an O-Ring replaced, costing only 10 cents.
Prayer Requests: First, thank you for praying for our two sons in the military. Tony and Ally Storm and their three girls returned home from his tour of duty in Hawaii. Tony will be stationed in Fort Benning, Georgia. Also, please keep our son, David Highfill, in your prayers, as he will be deploying to East Africa this September for one year. We are thankful for their sacrifice and service to our country.
We so appreciate your very faithful prayers and financial support. You have a part in every soul that has been saved and every Bus Ministry that we have been able to help through these now 24 years. “He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.” (Proverbs 19:17) Many former bus kids are now pastors, pastors’ wives, missionaries, and full-time workers here in the United States and all over the world.
Your giving and prayers matter to them.
Yours for souls,
Warren & Jary Lynn Storm
