SEPTEMBER 2017

Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God.”

Psalm 146:5

Dear Friends and Supporters,

We are so blessed! You may recall from our last letter that the highway road crew graded the back of the church property so that it would drain properly during heavy rains,all at no charge.

The driveway is fairly steep and it is hard to get good traction without throwing gravel. Again, Gary talked to the supervisor of the road crew and asked if it would be possible to get some of the grindings from the old asphalt, as it packs down much better than gravel. Within a couple of days they brought out seven loads and graded and packed it down. Praise the Lord!

And, once again, they would accept no payment or gifts, saying they just like to a be of help to the community. God just continues to provide and meet needs in very unexpected ways!

We would appreciate your continued prayer about the possibility of acquiring the modular the highway crew is presently using as their office, when they are finished with it in about a year. As we mentioned in our last letter, our modular is in very bad condition and definitely needs to be replaced. Gary has made contact with the company that is leasing it to the highway department, but we are still needing more information. God knows our need, and we are trusting Him to supply in His time and in His way.

Concerning the health problem of Paul, our Youth Pastor. After several tests, some things have been ruled out, for which we are most thankful, but we still don’t have a definite answer to his breathing difficulty. He is waiting to get an appointment scheduled with a pulmonary doctor. Please keep Paul and family in your prayers.

Recently, a mother from the Reservation, came to services with her two-year old daughter, and last Sunday, Mary from, Camp Verde, saw our church sign and decided to visit. She now wants to bring her ninety-year old friend.

We will be making a trip back east the last of September to visit family, and would appreciate your prayers for safety in travel, and for Paul & Naomi as they “hold down the fort!”

Thank you for your concern, prayers, and support on our behalf. God bless you.

In Christ,

Gary & Bev
