Very Sad News

Dear Friends,

My niece's husband, Lincoln Ward, was killed tonight while riding his brother's motorcycle. They have three boys still in school. Lincoln was a veterinarian, a great father and husband.

Please pray for peace and comfort for this family. Please pray too for the extended family that they will all look to the Lord for strength and direction in their lives.

Thank you for prayers and faithfulness!!

My voice is continuing to improve and I was able to preach both services last Sunday. It may have been as much as two months since I last preached twice on Sundays. Sunday morning I preached the message "Limited Vision" which is now posted at the Burning Bush website and Sunday night I preached a "Vision for Us." I believe that God is beginning to move in our church and community. I believe that God is opening new doors for distribution of the devotional booklets, and God is expanding the reach of the website with 117 countries having visited in the past year. We are unable to see all that God is doing but He is at work and we must join Him in that work wherever it leads.
