Amsterdam, NY

Earlier this month we met with some fellow VMers; what an encouragement this was to both Leslie and me.  The 15th was my birthday, and Joe & Gina blessed us with our second grandson…little Joey, all 9 lbs and 22 inches of him!  Then on Sunday afternoon I had the honor of baptizing a lady […]

McKenna, WA

We had four great outdoor services last month. God used these services to bring unity to the congregation and a real hunger to submit to Him. Our three VBS programs over the summer brought the Gospel to communities away from the church. We saw many children receive Christ as their Savior. Family Fun Nights were […]

Coram, MT

I’m always struck with a little bit of wonder at who the Lord sends our way. One Sunday morning, a young man stopped by the church while I was changing a sprinkler. He’d just jumped off a boxcar as it passed through our community.   He was struggling with family issues in Spokane, and on a […]

Flooding in the Northeast: Please Pray for Village Missions’ Fields and Village Missionaries

We are starting to get reports of flooding damage in communities served by Village Missions in the Northeast.  Many of these communities are isolated and lacking in infrastructure.  Often, the topography is such that the damage will be extensive.  Pray for wisdom and strength as the Village Missionaries will often be called upon to minister in […]
