PRAISES REGARDING SPANISH MINISTRY: 1) "Airport God-stories" abounded! Only He could get us to our connecting flight on time; He used humans (?) to assist! 2) Three examples of God at work while ministering to 4 different groups in 3 locations are: a) a very conscientious teen accepted Christ. He wanted to be very sure he understood how to Biblically receive Christ as Savior, AND wanted to learn how to receive forgiveness for sin after his salvation. After 2 1/2 hours of questions and deciding, ... the Victory! What a gem! Thank You, Lord. b) It was a privilege to counsel some who were struggling out of an "old life." One was a woman with an intensely sad young childhood; she was continually haunted by those years. She, the interpreter, and David met for 2 1/2 hours. A final encouraging comment was, "You've given me the Toolbox," (referring to God's instruction in His Word). With Him, she began instantly to "fix" her life. 3) God strongly used the messages at all locations. Jesus always got His due, but especially on Good Friday! Many responded to Him.
REQUESTS, GOD WILLING: 1) Ministry ~ We are headed on the first of two ministry trips to The Netherlands this year (4/26-5/7). The responsibility is teaching the moms (Janice) at two Young Mothers with Children Camps. The doctor is uncomfortable with her traveling alone this time, so David graciously will take her, AND take very much work, as well. Needed: God's help, wisdom, direction, and strengthening presence in all ways. 2) Health: David still really hurts daily; his legs lack full stability. Janice: 5/18/16 thyroid surgery; 8/3 significant vascular procedure; the heart is great!
God is indescribably good to us.
We respectfully ask you to again "go with us" as you have done so often before; and please, please pray with and for us. Please be assured that we go, carrying you in our thoughts and prayers, and close to our hearts. THAT'S A PROMISE.
