Since April we have focused mainly on our congregation. We sensed the Lord was reassigning things and so we wanted to be sure to be seeking Him and hearing clearly. In the midst of it all, the Lord has been so faithful. We have had baptisms, outreaches, joint worships, bible studies and love blooming in our grandchildren. Our two oldest granddaughters have accepted engagements from two of the most wonderful young men. We are very excited for Christopher and Hannah and Will and Leah. Both plan to marry this coming year so weddings will be a major focus.
Oh and we took a 3 week stay cation. We were tired and in need of rest, We took our Leah for her graduation trip to Williamsburg Va. in the midst of our 3 weeks which so much fun. God provided sitters at night for Sherry's mom and Jen and her husband watched her during the day so we could go.

Jesus said we will be known by our love for one another and this visibly demonstrates to our community that truth, it is always the highlight of our summer.

We continue to pray for a spiritual awakening in our nation which is so divided. We know that the Lord is the only answer to the turmoil. Our prayer is that the body of Christ will be walking epistles so that the world may know.
Thank you for taking time to read our update. We anticipate a busy fall with international visitors and special speakers at our Church. We hope to be able to travel together to Latvia this coming spring and of course we want to be able to visit Ukraine this coming year as well. God will order our steps according to His plan though so we wait on His direction.
God bless you.
PW and Sherry
