Galatians 2:20
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live is the flesh I live by the faith of the
Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Greetings from the warming Arizona desert, and thank you for your continued prayer and financial support of this ministry. We are continually blessed, humbled, and amazed that the Lord would use us in His service. The working of Christ over the past two months among the Hualapai has been a joy to watch. We’ve seen four saved since our last letter. Both of the boys in Sherry’s class and two young men in our church services trusted Christ. Sherry led her kindergartner to the Lord during school. While Steve was blessed to lead her first grader to Christ during Sunday School on Resurrection Sunday. One of the young men who had been coming a couple of weeks was saved after the main worship service that same day. Back in March our home church flew us back to Indianapolis for a nice long weekend to get reacquainted and give an update on the ministry. We were able to be involved in several different aspects of the work. It seemed like everyone felt the need to feed us as if we hadn’t eaten for weeks! Thank you, Burge, for your warm hospitality. We were additionally blessed to be able to attend an Enrichment Retreat in Pensacola. Most of the conferences we are able to attend are either for men or ladies. Going together was great and we truly were> enriched! While we were away, our men attended the annual Men’s Retreat at Bill Rice Ranch West Branch. Brother Bill and Brother Wil Rice filled in for Steve on Sunday. Since returning home, we have begun a new discipleship class on Sunday afternoons prior to the evening service. Several new attenders have joined some of the “old timers” to learn more of God’s truths. Sherry took seven other ladies to the Ladies’ Spring Getaway in Flagstaff at the end of May. This is always a treat for her! We are ever thankful that Christ lives in us, loved us and gave Himself for us!
For God’s Glory,
Steve and Sherry De Ford Facebooktwittergoogle_plus
