The past three months have been a whirlwind of preparing for and leaving on our next big trip for this year. In July, we were able to present our ministry at the Blue River Baptist Church in Edinburgh, Indiana. The meeting was such a blessing. In August, we were able to go back to Blue River and be with Bro. Markos Lindsey and his family while they were there. It was a blessing to be able to be back with those precious people again and to be able to spend some time with the Lindseys before they left for Peru once again.
In August we were able to move into a house! We moved in on a Monday and left for our trip on Friday. This trip has been such a huge blessing to us. We have been blessed to have a full schedule for the last half of August and all of September. We started our trip at the First Baptist Church in Blue Rapids, Kansas, pastored by Jeremy Henderson, a friend of ours from Bible College. Our next stop was to Kansas City to be in a missions conference at Fairview Baptist Church, Pastor Jared Shipman. This conference was wonderful and the people were such an overwhelming blessing to our family. We were able to help put together information packets for their church and pass them out in a parade that Saturday. This was their first time doing a parade and we were able to hand out almost 1,000 packets with fliers and tracts. They are already planning on being in the next local parade in their area. It was a blessing to have a part in it.
Our September was busy with visiting churches. We were able to spend some time with Rebekah’s grandma in Cook, Nebraska for a few days before heading to Bellevue Nebraska to present at Midlands Bible Baptist Church, Pastor Dan Lydick.
We then headed to Colorado, stopping in North Platte, Nebraska at Riverside Baptist Church Wednesday night for service. They already had a missionary scheduled, but let us set up our table and give a short testimony. They also put us up for the night and we went the rest of the way to Colorado the next day. We were able present our ministry in several churches in Colorado including Ellicott Baptist Church, Solid Rock Deaf Baptist Church, Timberline Baptist Church, and then finished off with a missions conference at Lighthouse Baptist Church in Colorado Springs. This was very special to Rebekah because this is the church she grew up at. All of these meetings were a blessing and the alters were often full of people committing to God’s will: whether it be Faith Promise giving or being a witness to those around them. God used these churches to meet our needs. We are planning a survey trip to Peru as a family during the summer next year. We now have the money to pay for the airline tickets. Please pray that the details would come together and that we can set aside a little more money for this trip.
We are currently back in Indianapolis until the baby is born. After the baby is born we will be staying at Shepherd’s Bethel in West Baden, Indiana. This is where our home base will be for the rest of our deputation. Praise the Lord for this ministry. They have been a blessing to our family already. Our next trip starts down in Oklahoma on New Years Eve. Please continue to pray for a healthy new baby this month and that our schedule will continue to fill up for next year.
Thank you for your prayers and financial support.
