November 2014

Dear Praying Friends,

New [noo, nyoo]: adjective, having recently come into existence; being other than the former or old; having been in a relationship or condition but a short time.

If one word could describe the last three months of deputation travel for our family, that word would be “new.”

New Routines
We began home schooling this year! Elaine (age four) started Kindergarten shortly after Labor Day. This has been a transitional time as we discover a new routine and new responsibilities. Now we are learning how to take home schooling on the road!

New Van
We began to prayerfully consider purchasing a full-size van to make our deputation traveling more comfortable. The Lord answered specific prayer, and we were able to purchase one from a government surplus auction for a fabulous price! The van has only 26,000 miles on it and has already made travel much easier! We are praising God for providing this vehicle for our family!


New Life
One of the greatest joys in serving the Lord is getting to see people trust Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. We had the blessing of seeing three people make this decision within two weeks! While in Vermont, we were able to see two ladies get saved after the evening service. The Lord had prepared their hearts in the morning service, and the pastor was able to lead them both to the Lord. We also praise the Lord for allowing us to see a dear friend call on the Lord for salvation on a Sunday when we were at our home church. We have prayed for her salvation for several years. We are thrilled that she is now a member of the family of God!

New Friends
The Lord has blessed exceedingly as we have been in twelve different churches from August to October. We have made new friends and gained new prayer partners. We now have 176 subscribed to receive our prayer letters. We have also met many people who have been praying for us before we even met. We are so thankful for those of you who hold us up before the Lord in prayer!
