It was a joy to see each of you that were present at the Spring Missionary Conference at Thompson Road Baptist Church. We enjoyed the preaching and also enjoyed the wonderful meals the dear women prepared. Thank you Bro. Dave Parks and your church.
Since we were only going to be in the States a week we informed our eleven grandchildren who live in the States and other close friends and relatives to meet us at the conference or in Alexandria, Ky., where John’s invalid brother lives, or in Florida where John’s sister lives. All but two were able to be at one of the locations. What a joy to see them!
John had his 88th birthday April 30th while we were at the conference. Also I enjoyed the special hour I had speaking to the women who were present at the conference. (You can read a recap of her session here.)
We rejoice that God has given us 58 wonderful years as missionaries with BFM in many places in Brazil. We are in Brazil because you have supported us and our three children, Paul and Wanda, John Mark and Judy and Odali and Kathy, also our grandson Judson and Raquel. Thank you.
Pray God will give us health and spiritual guidance to serve Him until we go to be with Him in Heaven or He comes for all of us who have trusted Jesus as our Savior.
Thanks again for your support and prayers. May God bless each of you.
