UPDATES

Dear Prayer Partners,

Ruth Watts funeral went as well as could be expected. There were 3 people who indicated that they asked Jesus to be their Lord. Please pray for them that they find a good Bible preaching church and become involved.

My Mom, Nettie Mills, was released from the hospital today and returned to the care center. She is still very weak and will have several week of rehab to regain her balance and strength to walk.

Sunday through Wednesday I will be at FBC, Gray Summit, MO (St. Louis area) with pastor Ron Hymer.

Thanks for all your prayers.

PRAYER REQUEST

Dear Prayer Partners,

Please add Don Lee to your prayer list. Don lives in Oak Grove, MO and has stomach and esophagus cancer. He will have 4 more chemo treatments and then 6 weeks of recovery. After recovery from the effects of chemo he will have his stomach removed as well as a portion of his esophagus.

Don shared with me that he is sensing an extreme peace from the Lord about all of this. “Above everything”, Don said, “I want God to use this to reach people for Jesus, even if it is a sickness unto death, I’m ready.”

Thanks for your prayers.

PRAYER REQUEST

Dear Prayer Partners,

As I shared with you last week I had to reschedule the meeting at FBC, Iola, KS and so I was home yesterday and today. At 2 am my phone rang – it was the care center where my Mom lives. Mom has pneumonia and had to be taken to the hospital. Please pray for Mom’s recovery, and praise God that I was home and able to deal with this.

Also, add Stella Johnson to your prayer list. She is in the hospital in Springfield, MO. She has no circulation in one of her index fingers and they can’t understand why. Her finger has turned black and very painful. Also she has some severe back pain and needs surgery to take care of that. Stella and her husband Bob have served on our board of directors since the beginning and are good friends.

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,

Here’s an update on Jean Ramey…

Ron,
Ken Ramey told me that Jean will start physical rehab soon. Surgery went well and they removed as much of the mass as safely possible. They can’t remove it all. They will look at radiation/chemo therapy…but to be determined. Please continue to pray for Jean, Ken and family. Jean is still in NKC Hospital. Probably should check with hospital or Ken before going to hospital to visit. Ken had asked me to make sure everyone knew what was going on.
Thanks…prayers requested,
Linda Thorpe

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,

It was a wonderful service at FBC, Crocker last night. Attendance was down due to weather, but what a sweet time of worship and praise. Several came to pray with the Pastor and lots of tears at invitation. The Holy Spirit was truly mending broken hearts and reviving weary and worn saints of God. During the sermon I mentioned that sometimes revival is not just sermons that challenge us to repent from sin, but also when God “binds up the brokenhearted.” It was just such a tender time of the Father loving on His children.
God bless & thank you for your prayers.

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,

Things were really exciting at FBC, Crocker tonight! Let me explain…

The church hosts a dinner every Wednesday before service and we were just getting ready to eat when in walked Nick Catrow, the director of missions for Pulaski Baptist association. He brought a guest with him, Ishmael Mwilima. Ishmael is one of the chaplains at Fort Leonard Wood. Recently there have been over 200 professions of faith in Jesus at the Chapel services at the fort and well over 20 baptisms in the past two weeks.

As we ate dinner Ishmael told me his faith story. He was born in Tanzania in a community dominated by Moslems. When he was 15 a Southern Baptist missionary came to his town and told him about Jesus. He prayed to God and asked Jesus to be his Savior. His life was completely transformed and filled with joy. He ran home and told his parents about the wonderful good news he had come to know. Their response was, “Renounce Jesus and return to Allah or leave immediately.” For the next three years he was homeless and slept in Mango trees until he could finally make his way to the US. He worked hard at school, citizenship, Bible College, and then seminary. After seminary he joined the Army, became a Chaplin and is stationed at Fort Leonard Wood.

After hearing his story I asked Pastor Robin if Ishmael could have about 15 minutes to share with the church. After Ishmael shared his story I preached a very simple salvation message and gave the invitation. What a glorious time of worship tonight! 2 teenage girls (sisters) professed faith in Jesus and their Dad came to rededicate his life to Jesus! Several other were at the altar as well.

Please pray for Ishmael’s family to be saved. His fathers name is Memba and his mothers name is Safina.

I can hardly wait to see what God might do tomorrow night! Thank you for praying.

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,

The conference ended on a high note last night. Dr. John Yeats, executive director for the Missouri Baptist Convention gave the closing sermon and a good number of folks were at the altar with tear filled eyes and asking for the fullness of God’s Holy Spirit.

Tonight I resume revival services at FBC, Crocker, MO with Pastor Robin Salsman. Please pray for a mighty moving of God’s power.

God Bless one and all!

Dear Prayer Partners,

In spite of the snow storm yesterday afternoon, services at FBC, Crocker were great. Several came to the altar for council with Pastor Robin Salsman Sunday morning and Sunday evening as well. Wonderful time of praise and worship.

The Pulaski County Baptist Association got off to a good this morning, great attendance. I am preaching tonight and looking forward to what the Lord might do.

Thanks for your prayers!

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,

This is going to be a busy week… I’m very grateful for your prayers.

Last night was the beginning of the 11th annual Pulaski Baptist Association Evangelism Conference. It was a great time of praise and worship with a number of music evangelists singing and congregational worship was led by Dr. Gary Mathena. Gary is the Director of Practica for the School of Music at Liberty University, a gifted musician, and a great singer.

Today I will be preaching at FBC, Crocker, MO in both am & pm services. Monday and Tuesday I’ll be back at the Conference, and then Wednesday through Friday I’ll be back at FBC, Crocker.

I was scheduled to be at FBC, Iola, KS next Sunday through Wednesday but talked with their pastor last night and found out that the director of their senior adult ministries had a long illness and died Saturday morning. We agreed that it would be better to reschedule and allow their church time to grieve. When we schedule a new date I’ll be sure and let you know.

Have a great day of worship and thanks again for your prayers.
