While we were home this fall, we had to replace our old refrigerator. When the two men came to install the new one, I was able to share the good news of the Gospel with them. Jose and Miguel both trusted Christ as their personal Saviour, and they said they were interested in visiting our First Baptist Church Spanish Department. Praise the Lord! Two more souls joined God’s family!
“Heart to Help”
Our First Baptist Church “Heart to Help” Conference on October 1 was tremendous! The preaching services were outstanding, and the giving spirit was such a blessing.
At that meeting, a couple of Heritage Baptist College students showed me a picture of their home church’s bus. Their bus at New Hope Baptist Church of Independence, Missouri, had been vandalized. The vandals had cut all the wires in the side control panel. After the conference, I was able to go and help them. With the Lord’s help, we fixed all the wires and got the bus back on the road for the next Sunday. We were also able to fix more of their buses.
While we were home, we also helped our Hyles-Anderson College mechanic, Jerry Ossewaarde, work on some of their buses. He is a top mechanic and a blessing to know! We were able to fix a couple of their buses, and Brother Ossewaarde helped a missionary with their motor home as well.
Churches in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky were in need of help. We traveled 2,544 miles, helping 20 churches, and we fixed 29 buses. On average, we get one or two calls a day from bus mechanics, and many times over the phone, we help them fix a bus that is down. If you are looking to purchase a bus, please call me at 219-689-0011 before you do. I know most kinds of buses’ faults and failures. It could save you a lot of problems.
Two Highfill Weddings
At the time of this writing, two of our grandchildren got married within one week. Rick and Terri’s daughter Lydia married Corey Barton on November 2, and Dave and Kelley’s son Jimmie married Shelby on November 9. Our quiver is full and keeps growing!
We are thankful for those of you who are faithful in your prayers and financial support for our ministry. Thank you for partnering with us to help reach the bus families for Christ. We appreciate your caring.
Pray (1) that more CDL drivers, bus mechanics, and workers will volunteer; (2) that churches will start Bus Ministries or increase their bus routes to bring more families to Christ; (3) that more bus mechanics would become burdened to help fix church buses in their area; and (4) for our health and safety as we travel.
Yours for souls,
Warren & Jary Lynn Storm
