Emmanuel Baptist Church Missions Conference Photos

Prayer Letter October '09

Our Great Adventure: Ministering to the Children in Nicaragua!

     Our first missions conference was at Emmanuel Baptist Church.  It was an amazing experience and the people there were gracious, kind, overflowing in hospitality and just plain marvelous!!  We were so blessed to be a part of their conference.  We had the privilege of putting on a children's program each night.  It was an honor to work with them.  We really grew to love the people of this church and as we drove away on Sunday, our kids asked when we would see them again.  

     We attended the OARBC (Ohio Association of Regular Baptist Churches) Conference in Cleveland the 19th and 20th.  There were many pastors from all over Ohio and we were able to make some face to face contacts.  Dr. Loftis (President of ABWE) was there and he gave several messages from John 17.  He taught us about prayer and how we should ask God for amazingly impossible things because that's how He likes to work - then the glory all goes back to Him!! Awesome messages!! So we know that God can provide every dime that we need to be at 100% by April 2010!! 

     We have been learning Spanish.  The kids have been faithfully getting on the computer each day and learning from the Rosetta Stone software.  Charis Nims, a wonderful friend, has been coming over to teach my children the writing part of English and then she teaches all of us Spanish.  She taught at Nicaragua Christian Academy where the children will be attending school.  She is a FANTASTIC!! It is so fun to learn!  Isn't God the best!!

     Our house is almost ready to be put up for sale.  I feel like I keep saying that :)  I know that God allows things and this shower we had to replace has been an fiasco!  So once that is finished, then begins that horrendous job of showing the house!! ahhhh. 

          We could use your help!! It is extremely difficult to get into a church without some type of association.  If you know of a church that would be willing to have us come in and present our vision, would you please let us know? 

     Thank you so very much for all of your prayers, words of encouragement, and financial partnership. We cannot do this without you, nor would we want to. We are so blessed to have such a marvelous support team. Thank you. Please know that as God brings you to mind, we do pray for you! We want to pray for you. 

Love and Blessings!
