VICTORY FOR TROUBLED YOUTH
Greetings friends, family, and all our supporters…we are currently in Alabama. I get my 3rd cancer check up on June 24. I believe I’m still clear, but would appreciate your prayers that I am cancer clear.
We had a good time in Florida. I got to preach in several juvenile centers there…with many boys and girls coming to know the Lord Jesus Christ. This brings me to my next point.
Why we need support for this ministry.
1. Satan still walks about seeking whom he may devour. He is strongly after the youth of this nation, that he might destroy the nation. The more juvenile centers we can get King James Bible believing works in the more youth that can get saved, and escape Satan’s plan for their lives.
2. Satan still seeks to steal, kill and destroy. Because of that, we must go. We MUST go. Not only does our nation hang in the balance, but their souls do. If you had a child in juvenile wouldn’t you want someone in there telling them “this is the way…walk ye in it”? If it was your grandchild? I know I would want someone. How shall they hear without a preacher?
3. Our support for 3 of the last 4 months has been at the year 2000 level. I know we live in tough times. I know other missionaries are finding their support lacking. This ministry is almost entirely on the road. I don’t know any other way to do it. Right now, we plan to be back in Texas by July 17. There are at least 6 juvenile centers out there that are open to the ministry. With the year 2000 level of support, I’m not sure we can make it back there. So, what do we do? We go anyway. I know our God never fails.
4. We looked at the Carriage 5th wheels at Lazy Days in Tampa, FL. We would love to have one…waiting on the Lord.
5. Finally…I was asked recently about our costs…last year we spent almost $7000.00 on fuel and oil. Our health insurance was almost $10,000.00. (The health insurance has far more than paid for itself, but the cost remains the same.) So, yes, we could use more support, and more prayers. We do thank the Lord every day for those of you who support this ministry regularly. We thank him likewise for those who support once in a while; we’re just praying you become regular.
