Messick SEPTEMBER 2018


And my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the Lord.” Jer. 31:14b

Giving praise to God for all His goodness means laying aside our temptation to complain. How could we when we see His handiwork all around us; the beautiful mountains that surround us, the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, the wildlife that wanders across our property from time to time, but most of all His life-changing work in hearts. Though these changes don’t come as quickly as we’d like, God is faithful.

After the “busyness” of this summer, September slowed down a bit. Some months we have more to report than other months, but things are going well at church. Your prayers for Rachel’s healing after her amputation surgery have been answered. Her son, his girlfriend and a niece have been bringing her to services. Please pray for the salvation of the three coming with her.

We have begun a church choir. On our first Sunday singing together, seven ladies and two men joined us, including Rachel in her wheelchair. What a blessing!

We are anxiously awaiting the soon arrival of Paul & Naomi’s fifth child. HE is due on October 8th.

Would you please pray with us about the following?

  • The salvation of Rachel’s niece, son and his girlfriend.

  • The health needs of Paul, our youth pastor. The safe arrival of Paul & Naomi’s baby.

  • Strength for the day.

  • That each of us would stay close to the Lord and grow in our walk with Him.

  • That we would show our love for Him as we serve Him.

  • The much needed modular replacement.

  • Healing for fellow-missionary, Brian Shannon, badly injured in a motorcycle accident.

We feel so privileged to serve here, and we thank you for your help in making this possible. Your prayers are crucial.

Love in Christ,

Gary & Bev Messick
