March-April 2019 Prayer Letter

 

            1 Kings 17:6 “And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.”  Just as the Lord provided for the needs of Elijah, He is constantly providing blessings in our lives. When we have a need, He always intervenes in our situation. He feeds us when we are hungry. He clothes us when we need warmth. He gives us shelter in times of storms. He comforts us when no one else understands. It is wonderful how the Lord provides for His children! We are grateful for all the Lord’s provisions in our lives and we trust you are enjoying the goodness of our Heavenly Father. 

            The ministry at Craggy Correctional is going well! The Lord has blessed with good attendance and tremendous liberty to preach. We haven’t had any professions of faith at this prison in the last two months but the Lord is working. We have had several men that are coming to every service and acknowledging their need of salvation but have yet to trust Christ. We are praying for the Lord to work in their hearts and draw them unto Himself! We’ve been going to this facility for over eleven years now and have seen the Lord do some amazing things during this time. Many have trusted Christ and are now living productive lives in their communities but sadly many have rejected the grace of God and left unchanged!! Please help us pray for the salvation of the men at this facility!  We realize that if anyone gets saved it’s going to take the Holy Spirit of God drawing sinners! 

            The Lord has blessed at the Yancey County and Graham County Jails these past two months with a total of three men calling on the Lord for Salvation. During the month of April, we were able to conduct a revival at the Jackson County Jail in Sylva NC. The administration allowed us to hold several joint services with the men and women inmates. This was the second time in the last year that we were able to have a revival at this facility. The Lord blessed in this meeting and we had six individuals call out unto the Lord for salvation. 

            Please help us pray about our support level! We have lost some support over the years and we really need to raise a little more in the next few months! The Lord has been faithful to take care of our family down through the years and we are grateful for His kindness! Also, Missy has several dentist appointments coming up to determine exactly all she is going to have to have done. Help us pray for the Lord to give us direction and take care of this need financially as well. 

            Again, thank you for all you do for our family! We are truly grateful for all the support and the prayers that are prayed on our behalf!  Please continue to pray that Lord will use our family and that He will get the glory in all things! May the grace of our precious Lord be with you always! God Bless!
