Dear Pastor and Church Family, July 2018
July was a great month and we were able to see the Lord work in some special ways! At the beginning of the month we had a few meetings in Texas, and that officially ended our Texas Tour. God allowed some of our meetings in the middle of the month to be moved around and that enabled us to be at our home church for the H.O.P.E. Conference. The preaching and teaching was exactly what we needed to hear, especially as we endeavor to pursue God’s will. The preaching brought our focus back to the necessity of having a deep and intimate walk with God. As we become busier in the work of the ministry we must not allow our walk with God to lose its sweetness. As well, the teaching we received on the topic of spiritual warefare was very timely and eye-opening.
Our journeys this month took us from Central Texas all the way up to Central and Northern Michigan. From there we went to Upstate New York. We certainly traveled a number of miles this month and will continue to do so as we come into the month of August. This month was also uniquely filled with opportunities to minister to other ministry families in special ways and in return we were also ministered to in areas that we had need. We also praise the Lord for the times we have been able talk with people about the Lord and our ministry when we have taken our children to play at a park or washed our clothes at laundromats along the way.
At the close of the month we had a new church partner with us, and that was an exciting start as we move forward with our Eastern Tour. Please pray that God will grant us safety as we travel a great number of miles while we are out East. We look forward to what the Lord has in store for us as we continue pressing on!

Prayer Request: Pray that we can find out where my wife’s great – great grandpa died. That is the one document that we are struggling to find.
