Thank you for your prayers over the months and years of our deputation. I cannot imagine attempting a deputation ministry without knowing that there are so many praying for God's direction. Hopefully, as we continue to serve the Lord in missions, our relationship with you will continue to grow and deepen as we continue to depend on your supplication for us and our ministry. Please feel free to email us any of your prayer needs and concerns. We want to feel just as much a part of your ministry/family as you are of ours.
We are nearing the end of the break we took for Cornelia's birth and necessary family adjustment. Cornelia is adjusting to a somewhat regular schedule. And mom and I try to sneek in naps whenever possible. As we look forward to summer meetings and traveling please pray that we get the rest we need to guide our family in the ways of the Lord.
Two weeks ago we participated in Faith Baptist Church Cambridge's VBS as normal members (not missionaries). I am led the puppet ministry and was the "crew chief" for the Junior class. There were around 60 children coming. Sunday night was the closing service. Please pray that the parents that came will respond to Christ.

If you or someone you know will be in the area of any of these meetings we would love to see you/them. Please pray for these meeting opportunites for God to work in the lives of those in attendance. You never know when or how God will call someone into His service. Please pray also that I can schedule more meetings to finish the year.
Thank you again for your prayers. May the Lord bless you as you pray for others.
