Picking up new home in October !
Mary and I have now left our much-treasured summer home in the Colorado Rockies. Once again, we had the extreme honor of being able to minister at Silver State Baptist Youth Camp. We have now spent over four years of combined time at SSBYC. In our 34 years of marriage, we have spent more time there than any other place in the country. It is HOME! We were privileged to see many decisions made. Here are the final results (of cards received) for the 8 weeks of camp:
I absolutely love being around the young people every week. The music brought by the campers each week seemed to be the best we have ever had. The choirs were fantastic each Monday through Wednesday evening. I am so reminded of this passage:
It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD; --2 Chronicles 5:13
This is one of my favorite passages of scripture. It is an amazing thing to see the Lord move in a special way in a service. On more than one occasion this summer, we saw the effects of the Holy Spirit moving in a service. One of my most treasured childhood memories is when I saw the Spirit move in this same way when my own mother sang two songs before an evangelist was to speak. Although you could not see a cloud move in, you could sense the Lord moving in a unique way. The evangelist came forward and just began to sing. I will never forget the many people who came to the altar that night, a number accepting Christ. This is not something that happens every service, but it is something that we should all pray for.
Please pray for Mary and I, as we will be covering a lot of ground the next two months. We will leave Colorado and be in Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Nebraska, and Kansas. We will pick up our new rig the 3rd week of October, Lord willing. We are getting so close to the goal we set in raising the needed funds for this purchase. We are just a few thousand dollars from what we have been praying for. Pray the rest will come in so we can just write a check at the time we pick it up without having to finance anything.
Mary and I thank the Lord for you, your prayers, and your support. We pray the Lord will use us as His servants as we share the Gospel through music and testimony.
In His Service,
