Dear Praying Friends
My wife and I had the pleasure of attending the Missions’ Conference at Lancaster Baptist Church the last week of October. What a great experience it was to be with our friends Pastor Paul Chappell and his wife, their staff, their church family, the schools, and the college. There is a missions’ fervor in Lancaster that is seldom seen, and for this, we are grateful. I was so thrilled to talk to so many of the college students who have felt the tug of God, not only to go to the mission field, but to different areas in the 1040 Window. I had three different WCBC students (two young men and one young lady) who came up to me and said that God had used our time with LBC two years ago to stir their hearts to go to the 1040 Window. Praise The Lord! I also had the opportunity to spend much time with a young man named Phillip whose family is from the “restricted” nation in which my wife and I served for 15 months. We were so pleased to hear that God is leading him to go back to that country to serve.
Please pray for the many young people in Bible Colleges all over America who God is stirring to go to “the uttermost parts of the earth,” especially the 1040 Window!
In less than three weeks, my wife and I will be boarding a plane and returning to Southeast Asia. We are looking forward to getting back on the field, and praying that God will use us. We are looking forward to working alongside our team in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and to continue to work indirectly with the dear folks in the “restricted” nation in which we served. Two weeks after flying into Cambodia, I will fly back into that “restricted” nation and spend about two weeks with them preaching and teaching. Can’t wait to get back on the field!
Please pray for my wife and I as we adjust to a new country, a new people, and a new work!
