June was a productive month, with the opportunity to present our ministry in twelve churches! We were in four churches in Washington: Lake Valley Baptist Church, Bethany Baptist Church, Riverview Baptist Church, and Liberty Baptist Church. We had a great time at those churches! We were in eight churches in Montana: Lighthouse Baptist Church, Faith Baptist Church, Temple Baptist Church, Triumph Baptist Church, Heritage Baptist Church, Galilee Baptist Church, Faith Baptist Church, and Graceway Baptist Church. We will miss the wonderful friends we made at these churches!
First Quarter Down!
In June we gained three supporting churches! Gateway Baptist Church in Iowa partnered with us; we were a part of their Missions Conference back in March. First Baptist Church in Delaware also partnered with us. We enjoyed meeting them in January. Pastor Secrest had actually been a missionary to Uruguay! Greenwood Bible Baptist Church also partnered with us. It was a blessing to be a part of their Missions Sunday in May! That brings our monthly goal to about 25%! We praise the Lord for new partners in support and prayer!
Vacation Bible School!
We presented our ministry at Lighthouse Baptist Church in Missoula, Montana, on June 12. We found out that they were having a Vacation Bible School June 24-28 when we would be back in the area, so we asked if we could help with it. Pastor Lemmons said “Yes” and asked me to teach the verse. I was able to help out 3 of the 5 nights. The Lord blessed with 41 first-time visitors and souls saved! The first night, there were 46 children in attendance, with 2 saved! I had the privilege to lead a six-year-old boy named Chase to the Lord! On Friday, there were 53 children and 10 parents there! There were 86 children there that week overall, with 17 children trusting in Jesus to be their personal Saviour! Some of the children plan to come on the bus Sunday! We can’t underestimate the importance of children’s ministries. I’m so thankful for all the dedicated workers who led the music, set up, drove a van or bus, cooked the meals, and much more!
Please continue to pray for us in July as we head back to the Midwest for seven meetings.
• Support at 25%!

For Christ’s sake,
Tim, Christa, Ethan, and Evan Simmons
