If there are a couple of verses that have really encouraged the Cobb’s of late it would be Psalm 126:2&3 —”Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them. The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.” These last few months have been filled with some trials but GLORY BE TO GOD we have no sad tales to tell. HE has blessed and delivered and provided and came through in great and mighty ways!!!
Most of these trials have come by way of bus repairs and issues, but each and every time God worked it out as only He could have. The biggest need was six brand new tires on it to the tune of $3500. We are thankful for our friends in Indiana taking care of this. The pastor there also gave us his 2003 Chevy Trailblazer so we could have a vehicle to tow behind the bus. With each need or trial came an answer directly from the Lord.
Since our last letter we have been in some really good meetings in: two churches in Maine, New Brunswick, Indiana, three churches in New York, two churches in Ohio and then we also were back up in Maine for a couple more meetings. Our trip to Maine was cut short by a few days as we returned back to western New York for the funeral of Pastor Barney Lee from Center Road Baptist Church. He was Stacie’s pastor from the time she was about three years old up until we got married. Pastor Lee was one of my heroes and a great man of God.
We are now in Hamburg for our Camp Meeting at Old Time Baptist Church. By the time you receive this letter camp meeting will be over and we will have had the opportunity to see many of you here.
September and October will find us in meetings in Alabama and New York.
As always we thank each and every one of you who pray for us and for those who support us financially. We could not do the ministry God has called us to without the power of God and with that comes your help. It is all greatly appreciated more than you will ever know.
-Souls to be saved and saints to get help in the meetings.
-To be a help to the churches, preachers and saints of God
-Continued safety with the bus & car and for wisdom.
-God to continue to set our calendar.
-Our health to be good and strong.
In the service of the King,
Craig and Stacie Cobb
