Linked Youth - Guyana
FRUIT THAT REMAINS: Looking back over the past three months my life has been impacted in a big way through the youth camp in July. As you recall we had over 44 people receive Christ in July and many of those through the youth camp. Our pastors are still seeing the fruit of those efforts. Moving forward I am energized now more than ever to pour time and energy into our work with the youth in Guyana. Above left you can see some of the young men who were baptized as a result of our efforts, and the picture to the right shows one of our evening services during camp week.
FAMILY UPDATES: Wendy and I have been through a whirlwind of changes over these past few months. We started by saying goodbye to our life and ministry in Jacksonville back in June. We also said goodbye to our youngest, John, as he left for Army basic training. We officially became “empty nesters.” In August we counted our blessings to celebrate 25 wonderful years of marriage! In August and September, we saw John graduate from Army basic training and then Infantry school. Just this week John was awarded his wings after finishing Army Airborne school. During this same period Josiah, who is stationed in Hawaii, was selected as the “Hero of the Brigade” and he completed Air Assault school where he earned his wings. Josh is doing great as he just started a new adventure working on a small ranch in South Carolina. He loves working with horses and now he is doing what he loves to do. We miss our boys so much, more than we can express. But we are so proud of all three young men as they are moving forward in their lives and doing something they love.
MINISTRY TRAVEL: Over the past few months we are grateful for the safe traveling mercies God has given to us. I have preached from Washington to New York and here in Florida. We rejoice to report souls have been saved and hearts have been stirred to God’s global mission. We have many miles yet to travel, but we expect to be moving to Guyana in March 2020!
* Our rental house has sold; we still need to sell our primary residence.
* We need more financial partners to come on board and new opportunities to share with churches.
* We need a Spanish speaking team member to join us to reach Venezuelan refugees.
* Pray for those seeking God’s direction about joining our team in Guyana.
* Pray for our boys that they will be the young men God desires them to be.
