We started September preaching a back to school two day retreat for a Christian school in Pekin, IL. The Lord blessed with good liberty and good decisions made. I always enjoy preaching to teenagers as I am not that far removed from being one! I pray God would continue working in the lives of the kids in Pekin, and that He would raise up another generation of servant’s for Him!
The rest of September kept us busy as I had a place to preach each of the four Sunday’s. I filled the pulpit twice for a church in Harrison, IL, and then also preached two Sunday’s at my home church in Rockford as my Pastor was out of town for different things. I am grateful to the Lord for these opportunities and we had wonderful services each week.
This past Saturday we ministered in music and preaching at a church banquet in Milledgeville, IL. What a blessing to be with Pastor Farmer and his sweet folks. God gave us a wonderful evening and I trust the Lord used His Word in the hearts of the people.
We even fit in a small vacation to Branson, MO, in the middle of September which we all enjoyed! I will be preaching 3 out of 5 Sunday’s in October at 3 different churches, and then we have a half-week revival meeting in Pennsylvania the beginning of November. God is continuing to open doors and we praise Him and look forward to these next few months of ministry! Would you please pray with us that Christ would be increased everywhere we go? Thank you and God bless!
