Hebrews 9:27, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”.
We know that this is not a verse that you would start out a update letter but to us it is a reminder of why God has put us here to let folks know that one day we will all stand before Him.
We have had three tragic deaths this last week in our area. A 51-year-old father and his 14-year-old son were killed in a farming accident and a 5 year old boy with a medical problem. This is a constant reminder that we need to be sharing the gospel with everyone the Lord brings into our lives.
We have been on the road updating some of our supporting churches and visiting some of the ones that we helped to build their building.
Luke 2:11 “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Jesus is the reason for the season. We are so thankful for our salvation. The Lord is good all the time.
This past year we have seen the Lord work in many situations. To start off the year Dennis began seeing the doctor to have his ankle replaced. The surgery was August 9th (his 60th birthday) and was a success.
While we have been home we have had the privilege of helping work in our home church, First Baptist of Barron, WI. We take six kids to Awana and help wherever we can. It is a joy to be able to help these kids learn from God’s Word.
First of all we want to thank our family of supporters, both financial and prayer supporters. We have delayed this update so that we could be better informed about what the near future holds for us so that you could pray more informed.
But first we would like to give a little update of the last couple of months. In May we had the privilege of going to Fort Ashby, WV to work with our team building a new church for Berean Independent Baptist Church. We were able to help with many projects.
The work is going well there. The brick is done on the outside. The drywall is all up and being taped and mudded. Some of the rooms in the education wing are painted and trim is going up.
Even thou we were there for a short time we got to know the church family and miss them very much.
