Dear Friends in Christ,
This month has been a very dry month for our area. Though we are considered “high mountain desert”, we usually have a monsoon season at this time bringing us much needed water. The lack of water has caused several wild fires throughout the state. One of them was just north of Flagstaff and some of you saw it in the news. (This one was called the “Museum Fire” because it was close to the Northern Arizona Museum.) We are thankful that our home was never in danger-thank you to those of you who were praying for us during this time. The folks living in town appreciate the drier summer months because of the threat of flash floods in town as a result of the fire. It is good that God is in control of even the rains.
We are still waiting for the fall classes to begin for the Dine Bible Institute on the Navajo Reservation. Until then, we are using the time to get some things done around our home; including getting our winter supply of firewood down off the mountain. After a busy spring, this slower pace for the summer has been a blessing.
We filled in for a local pastor that had to be away on 2 different Sundays this month and at present we are scheduled to fill in for another pastor later this fall. Much of our ministry this summer has been un-scheduled contacts as we have been able to share the message of the Gospel with visitors and neighbors. Please pray with us that the Holy Spirit will guide what we say and which Scriptures we use and that hearts would be open to submitting to Christ and accept His gift of salvation.
Thank you to each of you for your prayers and gifts that make our ministry here possible.
II Cor. 2:11 “Ye also helping together by prayer for us.”
