Monthly Letters

How thankful we are to be able to celebrate another Christmas with our family and friends in the ministry.  We are reminded how good God has been to us as a dear young lady in our church lost her mother to cancer very recently.  She was diagnosed less than two months ago, and we suffer with this wonderful family.  Just this...

Great comfort is available to each one of us as we read Luke 2:10. As men were "sore afraid,"  the angel said, "Fear not for I bring you good tidings of great joy." Men's hearts are filled with fear as they face the future without the Prince of Peace. The year draws to a close with many surprises for Bev and...

December is a wonderful time of the year as we reflect on the lowly birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are thankful that our Savior "made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men" Phil. 2:7. We have been busy throughout the month of November and the beginning...

Since this is Thanksgiving month, my daughter-in-law and grandchildren decided to post something every day for which they are thankful. A couple of days ago my grandson, Hudson, was thankful for "trash bags."  Kerstin asked him why and he said, "If we didn't have trash bags the trash would go in the corner and stink." We certainly have a great...

We will end the last quarter of 2013 with lots of activity. There have been challenges and blessings.  God is so gracious to meet each circumstance. We have spent much time on the phone visiting with pastors. Many are not familiar with our ministry. It has been encouraging to have a number say they were excited to find that there was...

Over 30,000 John and Roman booklets and gospel literature went out into the community. The meetings were very well attended with visitors from the community and with over eight churches coming to show their support. One church...

I have held off writing this monthly prayer letter until I completed the second week of chemo treatments.  After the first week, everything seemed to be fine with no side effects at all.  After the second treatment, I have been unusually tired, but other than that, I have not had any other side effects.  I asked about the tiredness, and...

I am a few days late with getting this letter out, but it has been a busy time. Shortly after seeing the pancreatic surgeon and taking care of the pastor's luncheon in Rome, NY, we left for Tennessee to help our daughter prepare for her wedding. It was a wonderful wedding, and we are proud to have James Viers as our...

We were so thrilled to see the way the LORD worked in the Get Acquainted Meetings for Faith Bible Baptist Church in Rome, New York. We were appreciative of the hearts of Pastor Clarence Hafelin and Amazing Grace Baptist Church for the role they played as the reproducing church. We would also like to thank other pastors that came to...
