Hello, brothers and sisters in Christ! We are preparing our hearts for the joyful celebrations of Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, a time for solumn reflection indeed. It's also a good time to share the Good News of a loving Savior with our neighbors, workplace friends, family, etc. Let’s never neglect an opportunity to share God’s work in our lives, with those around us who seldom hear a witness to the “mighty works” he has done through his Son Jesus!
(1) The surgery on Michael’s leg went on as scheduled (Feb. 16), and the surgeon deemed it a success! He discovered during the operation that only three ligaments needed repair or replacement, not five, and they are healing nicely so far. God answered your prayers for us! This month will be a time of healing, therapy, and recovery. Please PRAY accordingly!
(2) Lots more orders came in during February, and the operation made it hard to keep up. But we ended the month with everything sent off. Again, I praise God for the supportive men at our church for helping me pack and ship books to churches all across the continent!
The Abundant Life course provides a solid foundation for new believers and restoring lapsed believers as well. Churches this month are starting groups using this program in Brooklyn, Okanogan WA, Grove City PA, and Sarasota FL. In addition, a new URBACAD group (using Life of Christ) is starting in East Stroudsburg PA this spring. Please PRAY for the new believers, their counselors, and their pastors in these churches, that their lights will shine brightly for the Lord.
(3) As Michael recovers this month, he’s planning to bring the Bible message on Palm Sunday at our home church, Community Alliance. Please PRAY for all the events at our church, that the Lord will bless our efforts with new contacts and witness to Christ’s wondrous love and sacrifice, culminating at the cross of Calvary.
(4) We also need to mention our ongoing support needs. Please PRAY that the Lord will continue to supply all our needs as a couple, and in the work of ministry as well. Again this month, we send a special thank you to all who have given and prayed for our work. We are eternally grateful—literally!—for our friends and partners in the great work of the Kingdom of the Son!
