Philippians 1:3-5 says, “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now…” These verses are dear to us when it comes to thinking of the YOU—the precious saints that we have had the privilege to get to meet and know in the churches the Lord has allowed us to minister. Stacie and I are very grateful for the friendships God has allowed us to make. We also want to thank all of you who pray for this ministry the Lord has given us and do not take those prayers for granted. We have some very specific things we are praying about this year and would ask you to join us. God knows the details and as with everything we are trusting Him.
The last quarter of 2016 found us in Alabama, New York twice, Ohio and Michigan. January isn't even over and already we have been to Florida, Texas and Louisiana. I leave again this Friday and head back to Texas and from there visit churches in Mississippi & Louisiana and then to Florida for the next meeting. The Lord has been very good to us as always and are grateful for the opportunity to serve Him.
We are both doing well and are thankful for good health. And “the boys” (Jack and Jase) are doing good and are spoiled more than ever. They make great companions and especially for Stacie for those trips when it is just me traveling.
I am very excited to share with you a big answer to prayer! We mentioned in a past letter about the opportunity to possibly go to Germany in February. This past Saturday the Lord provided and my ticket was booked! To God be the glory!!! This will be my first trip to Europe and I am very excited to go to Dresden and be a part of the meeting that veteran missionary Rick Weimer is hosting.
We look forward to seeing many of you in our travels this year. What a blessing it is to see the family! Our travels these next couple of months will take us to...Florida, New York, Germany and Nova Scotia. It is an honor to serve the Lord.
In His service,
