Dear Friends in Christ,
This month, we had to say some more “Good-byes”. 4 ladies that we have ministered to over the years are now Home with the Lord; Sally (from Black Mesa that we met years ago and has been a dear friend over the years), Thelma (from the nursing home where Janet has been visiting), Geraldine’s daughter (Geraldine is one of the Bible School students where Sam is teaching) and Rena (her husband Charlie died on New Year’s day-they were both faithful members of the church in Tuba City where we pastored a few years ago).
Yet God has balanced the “Good-byes” with several “Hellos” for this coming year as several babies are expected to make an appearance. One of our missionary gals is expecting a baby boy in about a month. One of Janet’s piano students is expecting early this summer and also some of our grandchildren are going to give us some more great grandchildren before the year is over. Children are truly a gift from God and we thank Him for each new life.
Each summer, Sam travels to Thorne Bay, Alaska to work on the radio station project. The exterior is finished but the interior is still waiting for completion. Here are some of the things that we would like to accomplish this summer:
*wiring (already provided but needs installation)
*insulation ($3,000 needed)
*skirting to keep wild animals from making their home under the building
(Approx. $500 needed)
*install wood stove (already provided but needs installation)
*footers for the extension that will include kitchen and bathroom
(Approx. $1500 needed)
Here are some things you can pray with us about:
*for the Alaska Power company to bring electric to the property
*finances to continue to keep this project debt-free
*volunteer work crews with the needed skills
*reasonable air fares for self and workers
We do appreciate each of you that has prayed for us and supported our ministry over the years. We are very aware that you are part of our ministry and thank God for each of you. Thank you.
II Cor. 2:11 “Ye also helping together by prayer for us.”
