Dear Pastor and Church Family, October 2019
The month of October is now over and it has been a very busy month. Our travels took us up and down the West Coast and to Texas. We went from Southern California to British Columbia, and then I hopped over to Texas for a conference. We have just a few more meetings left to go to and from there we’ll start winding down our deputation travels. Lord willing we will see the last bit of our support come in over the next couple of months. The remainder of our time in the states will be spent with our church family, as well as preparing for the coming of our baby, and our departure for the field. Our tickets to Italy are purchased and we will depart February 25, 2020!
We are going to move out of our motorhome at the end of November. Please pray the process will go smoothly, and that the Lord will provide a buyer for it as well. We are all a little sad, as it has been our home for the last 2 years while we’ve been on the road. I think my children will miss it the most. We praise the Lord for the stability that it has given our family as we’ve been on deputation.
One of the great highlights of the month was the opportunity we had to soulwinning in British Columbia. It was truly one of the most unique times of doorknocking that I’ve ever had. At each door we met someone from a different country in the world. We were able to get out a number of tracts and a few people took bible studies. My children also enjoyed seeing so many people in their traditional Middle Eastern, Indian, African and East Asian clothes.
Please pray with us about our housing in Italy. We have a place reserved for the first month after we arrive, but we are already looking for more permanent housing. We have found a place that we really like. Pray for wisdom and the Lord’s will in this matter.
The Keister Family
