Dear loved ones,
Greetings. I apologize for not getting this update out quicker, but we have been so busy. We have been to two funerals and three churches since we got here last Wednesday evening. When we got here to the States our church family and friends had a house all ready and furnished for us, with money to buy groceries too! We feel so unworthy of all these blessings, and want to say thank you for being so kind and considerate.
Our last month or so in Nicaragua has been extremely busy, with going to other villages every week to do conferences where we preach the gospel, take our worship team, drama team, and show the Jesus film. God is doing some amazing work in the hearts of the Miskito people, as He opens the doors for us to speak the truth of His Word by the Holy Spirit.
It looks like our time here in the States will also be busy, but we are blessed to be able to be here and share with yall what God is doing in our lives and the lives of our precious Miskito Indian friends. With this house we are staying in yall will be able to stop by and see us whenever you want. We won’t be able to go and visit many of our friends like we did the last few years, because it just runs us to death. So this year we are inviting yall to come and see us, for a minute, a few hours, or just hang out with us for a while.
We do have a busy schedule, so if you are coming far, make sure you message me by this email address or text me at 618-306-7004 to make sure we’ll be around when you come, or to set up a time to come. Our house is located; from Hwy 32 and Hwy 72 junction, take 72 west toward Rolla. Go about half a mile and pass Hwy H on the left, we are in the next house on the right, a red brick house. From Rolla, as you get into Salem, pass Hwy F and the big metal buildings (church) on the left, we are the first house on the left. Please come on out and see us, because we do want to see yall.
I will include our speaking schedule as far as it is filled out now. I know that all our Wednesday nights will also be filled up, but haven’t got all the details yet. I will also share this schedule on Facebook and update it as I get confirmations and times of meetings.
