APRIL 2020

For where two or three are gathered together in myname, there am I in the midst of them.” Matt. 18:20

Dear Ones in Christ,

We trust all is well with you during this unusual period in our world. Since our last letter, Gary purchased a transmitter enabling us to hold drive-in services in our church parking lot. As we called our church folk to let them know we would have church in our cars, the message coming through their radio, we thought of the above scripture and wondered if it would be just two or three gathering, but to our surprise and great joy as we have met this way the last three Sundays in April, we had around thirty-five attend each service! Due to the rise in temperature, we have begun meeting at 9:00 instead of 10:00 am.

Like us, I’m sure you miss the close fellowship with friends and family, especially grandkids! You can imagine our delight when, on the second Sunday, who should drive all the way from Phoenix to attend our services, but Kirt, Elida, Joseph & Micah!  It was so good to see them again, even if we did have to keep our distance, and believe me, that wasn’t easy! 

It is a great blessing that Naomi has been able to teach our ladies Bible study on Zoom.  It was so good to be in God’s Word together and fellowship, and even see each other “face to face” again! 

We are looking forward to seeing how God will work and bless the ministry when we are able to resume normal services. 

We are so grateful to the Lord for your faithful prayers on our behalf and the support that makes it possible to continue the ministry. 

PRAISES:

*Healing of the DeFord family from the virus

*For the technology to be able to have drive-in services

*For Baby Andrew’s continued progress 

PRAYER REQUESTS:

*Salvation of those on the Yavapai-Apache Nation

*Bev’s nephew, Eric, suffering with brain cancer

*That God might use these uncertain times to bring revival around the world
