We thank the Lord for your prayers! Here is a brief report on the work here and some prayer requests.
Writing: Three new books have been recently published: Kate's first book Disciplines of the Heart – Cultivating True Devotion for God, which includes a twenty lesson study guide. The Beginning of Wisdom (Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Eccle., SOS) and Relativity and Redemption (Judges and Ruth). A manuscript on Ezekiel/Daniel (last winter’s project) is now in editing. The Old Testament devotional commentary that I have been working on for fifteen years is now 60 percent complete. By God’s grace I hope to complete it in another six to seven years.
Outreach and Discipleship: We have witness two souls profess Christ as Savior in the last three weeks: Sophia (a 9 year old) and Tyler (a 21 year old coming out of vial background). Pray for their growth and discipleship – I am meeting with Tyler twice a week. Our Wednesday night studies are exciting as many are seeing Church truth for the first time. There are eleven adults crowded around our kitchen table, while Brenda is teaching seven children in the basement. Our Friday nights studies are a bit small, but no less thrilling. Brenda's after school club at Appanoose elementary has just finished for the semester, she had 14 children regularly attending - it is the biggest club that she has had at that school. I am presently discipling a younger believer on Mondays. We also have a quarterly weekend young men’s study class in our home – several brothers throughout the region attend. The next study is planned for June 25th.
Mission Aviation Training Academy: Our son Trey has about 150 flight hours now and continues to work on his instrumentation rating. He is normally at the MATA hanger six days a week. He is about 60% finished with the course work. God willing his goal is to gain his commercial license by the end of the year. He hopes to serve the Lord in Zambia as a missionary pilot. There is a fund at Ottawa Christian Fellowship to collect donations for his training.
Itinerant Ministry: Ministry was provided in IL, WI, and OH in March and in GA and MO in April. Ministry is planned for WI, IL and KS in May, and AB and BC (Canada) in June. It is a great privilege to open God’s Word – please pray for Spirit-controlled ministry.
We just finished attending the North American week of prayer – it was a very exciting time to humble ourselves before our great God – may He visit us with a fresh manifestation of His power!
Thanks for praying for us – the Lord is at work!
