I pray all is well with you and your loved ones! I have included last weeks bulletin along with this weeks. We traveled to our monthly reservation wide Bible study in Ft. Defiance on the 17th and 18th of this month. Terry Lawrence, the minister there,with his wife Pam have had 5 women obey the gospel this month. Keep all of our new sisters in prayer and to God be the glory for people still wanting to study the Bible.
Fred and Ester Lemmons and Billie Gills (Austin Ave church of Christ) have been helping on the reservation for years but have been staying in Hogback since the 2nd of this month. Billie is teaching our ladies every monday night and Fred has been helping Phil with teaching and preaching at the Hogback congregation. Fred filled in for me when I was sick and we were are all blessed that they are here. These three great servants plan on staying until March or so and if they plan it just right, our spring winds will carry them all the back to Texas free of charge....hahah
The congregation here in Shiprock continues to do well. We are starting a new Wednesday night study in two weeks. We will be studying "Angels and Demon's" I have gotten some great material from Tim Eby in Hico, TX on the subject on angels and really look forward to teaching the topic. Our men's classes continue to be an encouragement to me, the guys really get involved with the study and always have great input for discussion. We will be starting a new study in a month or so concerning "Building Biblical Leaders"
The last Wednesday of every month is our singing devotional service. Tonight we added scripture devotionals to the songs. Nelson Morris and Peter Gillis both lead our minds in great lessons concerning parenting and loving as God loves us. I look forward to the day when they can help teach Bible classes and preach lessons!!!
Rose and I want to thank you all again for the support you give us and the prayers that keep us!!! We love our work, it is never easy but the pay off is PRICELESS! We need preachers and teachers on the reservation. If you know of any one who wants to do the work the starting place is Bear Valley Bible Institute of Denver. The truth needs to be heard and we are the ones in charge of it. Until next week God Bless and thank you so much for everything!!
In the Lord's Service
