“Oh magnify the Lord with me, and let us Exalt His name together!” Psalms 34:3
September started off with a great big bang of joy as we celebrated Jeff and Sarah’s wedding, having our family here and seeing many dear friends!! Thanks for praying for them as they adjust to life together and that God would use them mightily for the expansion of His Kingdom!
And God has been good as our adventures continue this year of traveling and visiting YOU!! It is a blessing to our hearts to re-connect with many of you and to be making new friends! God is so amazing and it is good to see His hand in so many ways as we travel! Thank God with us for this opportunity, and please pray with us that we will be used in each church we visit for His honor and glory and for His Kingdom purposes!
In September we visited:
- Iglesia Bautista Melrose Park: a refreshing time of fellowship (and delicious food!) with friends who we grew to love during our years in Chicago!
- Stromsburg (NE) Baptist: a time of getting to know wonderful folks who began supporting us before they knew us! We had a sweet time of fellowship with them (and great food!), and it took Janet back to her “farm” roots!
- Calvary Baptist in Yankton, SD: What a joy to visit another one of our newer supporting churches and have a chance to create bonds with new friends who have been so gracious to us!
- Bethel Baptist in Galesburg, IL: a faithful supporter of our ministry since 1982! We are so grateful for their on-going support through the years! We were so encouraged meeting new friends and re-connecting with families that knew our children when they were young! And a special thanks to dear Agnes who hosted us and took us fishing!!
