SEPTEMBER 2019

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped:

therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.” Psalm 28:7

Dear Ones in Him,

We thank you for allowing us to be your missionaries to the Yavapai-Apache Nation. Recently Bob, a man from the Reservation, came to church with his two little girls, Sacred and Danai. The next week they were back and Bob’s little son, Robert was with them. It is a blessing to see a parent coming with their children, not just sending them on the church van. We are not sure where they are spiritually so we ask that you pray that their spiritual needs would be met.

Gary had two surgeries in September, one to repair a hernia and the other was to remove a spot on his upper arm. The surgeon felt it could be a melanoma and cut quite deep. We praise the Lord it proved to be benign, but he did say it was caused by exposure to the sun.

We have mentioned the deteriorating condition of the modular ceilings. Gary & Paul tore out the ceiling in two areas and found mold. After treating it and putting paneling on one of the openings, Paul then coated the roof again. But a few days later we received heavy rains and the water poured in again and the paneling began to bulge. We would so appreciate your continued prayers about the modular replacement.

This month we were privileged to have the Marty Roembke family with us to share their ministry with the Menominee Tribe in Wisconsin.

We would ask for your prayers concerning an extended trip we will be making in October. We were supposed to make this trip for our 50th wedding anniversay four years ago, but have not been able to work it out until now. The start of our trip will be to attend the wedding of our Grandson, Jake Tyson and his fiancee, Jessica, who will be married on October 12, in Conway, AR. We are excited for both of them and welcome Jessica into our family!

From there we will be doing some sight-seeing and attend Bev’s family reunion in Indiana. Please pray for Paul & Naomi as they carry the extra load while we are away. We are thankful for men who will be helping Paul with some of the preaching services during that time. 

PRAYER REQUESTS:

  • Simon and John in Rehab
  • Andrew’s continued progress
  • Wisdom concerning the modular replacement

*Salvation: Tony’s family, Kelly’s family, Marlon, Simon

*Spiritual Growth: Alex, Joni, Jimmy

Thank you for your part in holding us up in prayer and financial support. Your prayers are vital to this work.

In Christ,

Gary & Bev Messick
