“It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High..”

                                                                                                                                          Psalm 92:1

Dear Ones in Him,

Recently we have been blessed by visits from missionaries, friends and family.

*It was a joy to have Gordon & Ruby Garcia in our home and to share their ministry with our

 church.  They have faithfully served as missionaries on the Tohono O’otham Reservation for

 many years.

*Another special  event was having our grandson, Micah with us for a week while on his fall

 break from school.

*Marty & Logan Roembke and their four children are missionaries on the Menominee

 Reservation in Wisconsin. Since our church supports their ministry, they came to report on

 the work, and spent several days with us.

*It was good to have Tim and Kathy Shubert, from Muncie, IN. attend our services while on

 vacation in AZ.

The Lord has impressed on us that we are at the stage in our life where we need to sell our home and downsize, so we are busy getting it ready to put on the market.  Please pray with us that it will sell quickly, and for the Lord’s leading as to where we should relocate.  We would like to stay in the Rimrock area, but are trusting the Lord for His guidance.

You may remember in our March news letter that we asked you to pray for Bob, as his wife had just died from a drug overdose, leaving him with three children to raise alone.  Bob is Anglo, his wife and children , Native Americans. He has faithfully come to church with his children for over a year.  The grandmother is taking him to court to try to have the children taken away from him.  The trial date is November 29th.  Please pray that God’s will be done in this situation.


*for the generous unexpected donation towards the modular replacement 

*for the good health and protection of our family, friends, and church family

*for God’s abundant provision of our daily needs


*Bob – get back custody of his children

*Simon – Spiritual needs, alcohol addiction

*God’s leading and timing to supply a couple to take our place

*God’s provision of funds and for wisdom in the modular replacement

We are truly humbled by your faithfulness in prayer and support these many years. Wishing you a blessed thanksgiving.

In His love,

Gary & Bev Messick
