August, 2016 Ministry Update

Dear friends in Christ,

Wow! What a month it has been. The “heat is on!” as they say. I cannot remember the last time that it has been so hot and so humid for so long. I often wonder how people survive in heat like this. It is a good reminder to pry for those serving the Lord overseas in environments like this as they minister without some of the modern conveniences that we enjoy here in the States.


As we often do each year, we have an opportunity each July to get away for a week of conference ministry at Greenwood Hills, near Chambersburg, PA. This year was a little different in that I was asked to share the children’s meetings with another brother. I took the morning sessions and he took the evening sessions. It was fun teaching the kids, something that I have done on other occasions in other places. I took up the theme, “Super Heroes of the Bible”, a theme I felt would resonant with the kids. They were very attentive as they heard lessons of the some of the heroes of the faith and what made them great in God’s eyes.

The rest of the month of July was filled with speaking at various places including an open air meeting at Ocean Grove, NJ. In August, I will be preforming a wedding for a relative and also getting ready for a busy fall of 11 conferences that will take me to NY, Maine, Texas, Louisiana, and Iowa and many places in between. We would appreciate prayer for us as I travel and minister the Word.

Whiting Bible Study

In September, we will be starting up another year of ministry to this seniors group. We will be studying the book of Acts. I really enjoy this study which is now in its 17th year. Many time the people from this study will visit our meeting and sometime attend our luncheons that we hold every other month.

Bible Conference By the Sea

Please be praying for our annual conference we hold at Harvey Cedars. – our Bible Conference by the Sea. We look forward to this annual event which is both refreshing in the Lord and uplifting through the ministry that is offered for the week.


We would also appreciate prayer as a family. Matthew has been working at Keswick this summer and it has been working out very well for him and we are grateful to the Lord.

We hope you enjoy the rest of the summer. It sure does go quickly!
