We were marching along in March. What a tremendous time in AK with meetings at Immanuel Baptist Church where Ben Burtch is pastor and Pioneer Peak Baptist Church where Aron Schrepfer is pastoring. It was good to see the church families and to hear what God is doing. The Lord worked in the meetings with good attendance and response even though there was some sickness going around. I was thankful not to get it myself. Thanks for your prayers. It had been about three years since I was able to be there. I enjoy both of these churches and their pastors.
I went to Wyoming for meetings with Northern Plains Fellowship the first week of April. On the way there, I saw many pastors and friends. The meetings were in Upton WY at First Baptist Church where Randy Fowler is pastor and at a convention center in Newcastle WY. It was a joy to be with the church family and the pastors. Along with many other friends, I also saw friends who were a part of the church where I pastored in Walla Walla. Dr. Jack Weaver and his wife Kitty have moved to WY to be close to his daughter’s family. It was sure good to see them. Then on the way home, I stopped by Dubois WY to be with Truth Baptist Church for their Thursday night meetings. It was so good to see what God is doing in Dubois where Isaiah Desent is Pastor.
Next, I head to Chewelah WA to be at Chewelah Baptist Church where Dan Cleghorn is pastor. The meetings start on Resurrection Sunday and go through Wednesday evening. I look forward to fellowshipping with the church family. I pray for God to work greatly in the hearts of those who are able to be there.
We are working toward getting a work team together from our home church to help the church in Sonoma CA. It looks like it will be the first full week in June. Please pray as this will be a big project. We will be reroofing the education/fellowship building. This is a church revitalization project. Please be in prayer for Grace Baptist Church and for Pastor Ron and Sarah Sondergaard as they seek God’s leading in this work. As always, we want to walk WITH the Lord through every step, not ahead of the Lord or behind the Lord.
