I, too, along with these precious servants of the Lord, stand amazed by your steadfast partnership with this ministry. Please know it is because of your concern, prayers, and gracious giving that enables us to continue to move forward in supporting pastors like Mario and Fredrick. I have communicated with these faithful servants, explaining that as long as our Lord continues to keep this ministry operative, we will continue to be faithful servants for His Work, done His Way, for His Glory!

Also, I want to thank you for your ongoing prayers for my family and me. Your thoughtfulness, notes of encouragement, and phone calls are such a blessing. I need your prayers and I cherish your friendships. The task of completing the writing of the first book from Ed’s studies is underway. My precious husband had started on this writing project; but did not complete it. I have committed to completing this massive undertaking. However, I realize I need the Lord’s guidance and wisdom, to carry this project to completion. Moreover, I recognize the need for your prayers to undergird me through this endeavor. Many of you have already been so encouraging to me about this project. Therefore, I know you will be prayer partners with me through this mission.

My heart is filled with thanksgiving for you and your heart to join with us, for the sake of the gospel. I can only express it, as did Paul in his letter to the precious saints in Philippi. “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you always in prayer making request for you with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

Please continue to pray for the Lady’s Bible Studies, which I teach on Sundays when I am home. In October, I will be speaking for a ladies retreat – 8 sessions over the 3-days. I have not yet settled on the topics we will study.

Again, I would like to mention the devotions we are posting on Facebook. I encourage you to join us and invite others to read them also. They are such an encouragement and a great tool for growth.

Next newsletter we will once again spotlight one of our pastors, as well as a book nook.
