The season of Autumn is just around the corner. There have been hints of it in the air, making us very happy!
We want to praise the Lord for His goodness to our family during all the scheduled camps and times of ministry throughout the Summer (we met so many new friends, as well as reconnected with those we have known through the years).
“Thou crownest [our] year with goodness.”
“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness and for His wonderful works to the children of men.”
“[We] shall abundantly utter the memory of Thy great goodness and shall sing of Thy righteousness.” Psalm 65:11, 107:9, 145:7
We do want to “abundantly utter” all of the marvelous works God did this summer! It is hard to believe that we are now looking BACK on all the ministry we prayed and prepared for—and we do so with great rejoicing! Thank you for being a part of each camp and individual conversation, of every time we traveled and taught, and of the intentional task of balancing family life and public ministry…through your faithful prayers! We saw the Lord draw young kids, teens, and adults to salvation and/or to a deeper spiritual walk. And we experienced the Lord drawing our own hearts to a greater desire to obey and please our good Shepherd.
God has opened doors for mentoring several teens and we are excited to see young people really grasp hold of the great commission and with great boldness desire to be obedient to their Savior! We have been blessed to work with 2 separate youth groups on the front lines of LIFE and evangelism this summer and look forward with great anticipation to working alongside other youth groups who have expressed interest! It is incredible to see these young people take courageous stands in their culture, in their family, in their School—at great cost to themselves. We praise God “for His wonderful works to the children of men.”
Please continue to pray for the ministry outside of the 2 remaining Abortion Mills in the KC area. There is a GREAT need for believers to come and do their part on this front line. A silent killing is taking place day in and day out every single week—5 days a week for 8 hours a day—slaughtering over 8,000 children in the course of one year here in our city. Please consider the part you may play. We want to help you in any way!
