Ministry Update for September–December


Snowballing Into Winterimage

It seems like since the beginning of fall everything has had a snowball effect. Business has dominated our time and unfortunately our updates have not been published. I think next year we will endeavor to put an update out quarterly instead of every other month.




Getting Wet Before Winter Comes

imageWe were very excited to begin the first Sunday of September with a baptism. Alberta Busking from Fort Laramie was baptized on the first Sunday of September. It was a precious event for my wife and I because we had the privilege of leading her to the Lord when we came out to candidate at Oregon Trail Baptist Church in the fall of 2011. Another precious aspect was the testimony of Alberta’s sister Dori. Alberta had told us that she has obviously known Dori her whole life and has seen the various health struggles that have plagued her family in recent years. Alberta has notice that since Dori became a believer and started attending church her life has changed and she [Alberta] wanted to experience the change that Dori had. What a wonderful testimony of the change that God works in our hearts.




Hunting Season Has Begunimage

You may be wondering why hunting would be part of a ministry update, so I had better explain. My wife and I enjoy hunting and to be honest she probably enjoys it more than I do. The hunting season lasts a few months out here and we know a believer in town who enjoys guiding and outfitting our hunt. Almost every time we go hunting we are introduced to new people who live in the area. It has been a great way to strike up conversations, make new contacts, and yes fill our freezer with meat. Please pray that the Lord would work on the hearts of those we encounter and open up more witnessing opportunities.


Home Missions Conference

In October we were with Pastor David Chavez at Calvary Baptist Church in Thornton, CO. Pastor David Chavez invited us to come down and speak at their Home Missions Conference. We had a wonderful time at the conference and left very encouraged.


Harvest Dinner

Last year we had a Harvest Dinner for the community that packed out our building. This year Pioneer Baptist Church joined us and we held the dinner at Guernsey’s Senior Center. Our attendance was about the same as last year however this year we had much more people from the community show up. At least two specific attendees were direct answers to prayer and heard a clear gospel message presented by Pastor Jason Crossman.


imageCaroling Indoors

December 8th we had a night of carols at the Auction Barn in town. Faith Bible Baptist Church from Greeley, Co brought part of their choir as well as many members to sing for us. We held the event at the Auction Barn so there would be plenty of room and everything went very well. There were somewhere between 60 and 70 people who showed up for the event. Please pray that the truth from the hymns and preaching will impact their hearts.


Home For Christmas

This year we are traveling home to Iowa and Minnesota for Christmas. Please pray for safety as we travel and for Pastor Driskell as he and his family fills in for us while we are gone.


Please Pray

Everything written in this letter as well as what is on our blog is fairly generic. If you would like more details so you can pray more accurately please contact me. I don’t like personal details about other people being posted on the internet.
