My Dear Teammates,

 

The April showers certainly brought May flowers and spring is here in all its glory.  When the cold winter wind blows down the gorge, I long for days like today.  I love this time of year.  The flowers bursting into all shades of color, birds returning and nesting, and when I walked out of my house the other night, the frogs were even croaking.  What a beautiful world God has provided for us and the best, Teammate, is yet to come!

 

Psalms 103 says, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy Name”!  That was my Grandma’s and my Mom’s favorite scripture verse.  Speaking of Moms, this is the month we honor them with Mother’s Day.  I remember my Grandma well.  To me, she was old when I first remember her, and she was the first saint that I remember knowing.  She was an old-fashioned shouting Methodist.  Do you remember any of them?  Many times I remember her, in the middle of the service, taking off waving her handkerchief and praising God at the top of her voice.  Needless to say, God came and people were blessed.  When she went to Heaven, my own dear Mom took up the torch, and she, too, was an old-fashioned Christian.  What a heritage!  Now, my wife and I are approaching our 48th wedding anniversary.  We have three daughters, all raising their kids to serve the Lord.  We have grand daughters older than we were when we were married!  That’s kind of humbling, but the years go by quickly.  If your Mom is alive, tell her that you love her, and make it a great day.

 

Speaking of love, I love and appreciate you, Teammate, more than you really know.  If you pray, give, volunteer, go, or help us in any way, you are truly part of the team that makes up Frontier Missions.  As I have said so many times, if it were not for you, we wouldn’t be in existence.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for every check you send, and every prayer that you pray.  God has called us to this ministry, and you are making it possible.  I pray that God will richly reward you for everything you do.  We have a great team and it is growing all the time. 

 

As I write this update, Rick and Marv are on the road in one of the big rigs.  They are on their way home from Salem, Ohio where they picked up five, new commercial wood burning stoves for the Northwest Indian Bible School in Alberton, Montana.  The cranes will be at the school tomorrow to unload them and they will start for home.  I am anxious to hear the many stories they will have to share, and I will share many of them with you. 

 

The devil is fighting, Teammate, but we are winning!  The Word says, “Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world”.  That’s why we will make it.

 

Until next month, may God richly bless you.  Pray for us every time you remember.
