Dear Pastor and Church Family, September 2018
Hallelujah, and Praise the Lord! September was an incredible month! In the beginning of the month we were in North Carolina. Thankfully we missed Hurricane Florence by a week. From there we made our way as far North as Vermont. A number of people said that we should have come a few weeks later so we could have seen the beautiful Fall foliage. Nonetheless, we had a number of meetings and were able to see God work in some great ways. In the first part of the month we saw our support level increase by 4 percentage points. That was certainly something worth shouting about.
One of the special parts of deputation is the fact that one can sow some gospel seeds in a number of places and at great distances in a short amount of time. We got to see an expression of surprise on a girl’s face at a Taco Bell drivethru in Vermont. She looked like she had never seen a tract and it is very possible that she never had before. It is exciting to wonder how God will use the gospel seeds that are planted in various places, here and there, as we continue on this journey.
Our travels this month have been nothing but a blessing. As we move into October things will begin to start ramping up even more as we get into another season of conferences. September was a fruitful month and our prayer is that October will be the same. We will continue pressing on with the citizenship paperwork, and will hopefully have everything together in the near future. Our language studies are coming along as well, and I’m especially excited for our children as they were given an Italian language program that is made specifically for children. We look forward to what God has in store for us as we come into the final quarter of the year. May the Lord bless and use each of you in your place of service.
