Dear Friends and Supporters, “And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of” Genesis 28:15. While God is speaking to the patriarch Jacob in this verse, we can still carry away the principle of God’s protective hand over us. God does not ask us to go somewhere without providing protection for the journey, and He certainly will not leave us during the trip. Tonya and I have had some long trips recently and God has kept us safe every mile of the way. When we were in Peru a few months ago, one of the planes that we were on shook furiously due to the turbulence. God was there and we landed safely (after a bit of prayer). Again, Tonya and I were driving home from Georgia and made it about half an hour from home when we felt the car shake. I got out and checked the tires and the tread was nearly gone on one of the tires. God was there and we made it home on the spare. Then again, we were on the way home from Asheville, North Carolina and the car shook hard from Asheville to Winston-Salem (about 2½ hours). When we took it to the mechanic, he said that by all accounts we should never have made it that far. Both front tires were nearly shredded for wear. God was there and we made it all the way home and were able to replace both tires. We never cease to be amazed by God’s protective hand over us. Since the last time we wrote an update, Tonya and I have moved up to just a little over 18% of our support. Praise the Lord!! God is faithful and keeps on providing what we need. It is a blessing to be in God’s will and see His hand provide what we need. I Thessalonians 5:24 says, “Faithful is He that calleth you, who also will do it.” God is helping us to carry out what He has given us to do. We are already scheduling meetings for next year and are excited to share our burden in more churches. Tonya and I now have a web site to update people on our ministry and progress. On it you can download our prayer letters, view our ministry presentation, see pictures of places we have been, track our support level, and read some of our latest updates. We encourage all of our financial and prayer supporters to visit our site and “check-in” on us from time to time. Our web site is and we try to keep it up fairly frequently. Continue to pray for us as we visit churches, even when we do not have a scheduled speaking engagement. We know that God will get us to Brazil when He is ready and we look forward to that time. In the meantime, we know that He has us here and is using us to encourage and minister to people here. Also pray as Tonya and I plan a trip to Brazil this December. This trip is partially a survey trip, and partially for the purpose of carrying some of our belongings to leave there. We are so sure that God wants us there, we are already making preparations. We look forward to letting you know how that trip goes. Until then, May God Bless!
