June and July 2020 Update

June/July 2020
Dear Family and Friends…
We praise the Lord for all He has done this June and first part of July in Alaska! Once again, please don’t let the current events control your faith…desire to move forward as “Seeing Him Who Is Invisible.” We are rejoicing over so many blessings to report! Thank you for your faithful prayers, love and support.
REJOICE POINTS:
1. GOD BLESSED WITH MANY ADDITIONAL LOVE OFFERINGS! Thank you, dear givers, for being so sensitive as to give to us during the current events. You have aided us financially in the work God has led us to do. You are a huge answer to our prayers!
(Though we don’t petition for support from behind pulpits [unless asked to present the need], we do PRAY for support in private. This rejoice point answered specific prayers for support, and allows us another avenue to teach Lydia how God wonderfully hears our prayers and desires to answer them in His time and according to His will!)
2. GOD BLESSED IN OUR ALASKA MEETINGS! During our Alaska Trip, our schedule stayed extremely busy in the work of the ministry! Since our last update (which also included Alaska), we have served the Lord in the following places: Sutton (2x), Kenai, Soldotna, Homer, Glennallen, Chugiak, Wasilla and Kodiak! Sutton and Kodiak were firsts for us, and the revival in Kodiak was an add-on to our trip which extended our stay in Alaska. God really blessed with a sweet spirit and gracious reception of the Word statewide! Praise His name, there were souls saved at both teen camps in Alaska!
3. GOD BLESSED WITH “TENT MAKING” OPPORTUNITIES! The Apostle Paul was a tent maker. From time to time, he busied himself with tent making during ministry stay in specific areas. We are grateful for two opportunities to bring in a little extra cash flow while we were in Alaska. We believe God is using these opportunities to bring in the funds for replacing the leach field in our rental house…praise the Lord!
4. GOD GAVE US 5 MORE EVENTS SINCE MAY’S UPDATE! 4 of the events are for 2020 and 1 of the events is for 2021. This brings the total to 46 events in 2020 and 5 events for 2021. We have been praying for the Lord to fill our fall and to begin to fill our 2021. He is!

Please pray for our upcoming ministry:
1. July 19th - Southside Baptist-West Allis, WI
2. July 20th-25th - Teen Camp at Camp Joy-Whitewater, WI
3. August 5th-9th - Crossroads Baptist-Peoria, IL
4. Pray for our schedule to fill for God’s glory.
AS ALWAYS, please continue to pray for souls to be saved and revival to be stirred wherever the Lord leads us … WE LOVE YOU!
