Update — October 23

October 23, 2009 9:21 pm

We had a great missions conference in Anderson, Indiana this week. God did a work in the church and in us as missionaries. The capstone to the week was that on the last night of the conference a lady came forward in the service for salvation. Many in this church are either new believers or older Christians who have been recently stirred up again in their relationship with the Lord. The zeal and excitement of the church members was a blessing to us. We went there to inspire them towards missions and they ended up encouraging us to be out there on the firing line as their ambassadors.

The conference started on Sunday, but I was not asked to be there until Monday. Because of that we were able to be in the church of Pete and Marianne Leclerc on the south side of Indianapolis for the Sunday morning service. The Leclerc family is another missionary family with our board whom we met for the first time this last year. We have enjoyed a great relationship with one another during this time.

Steph and I also had the privilege to interpret at a supporting church on Sunday evening. Though there were no Deaf in the service, we were able to use that time as a training opportunity for some of the church interpreters.

We also spent a few days at the Bill Rice Ranch where we previously ministered for 6 years as staff members. We were there for a Ladies Retreat. My wife enjoyed a nice time in the services while the kids and I played around on the Ranch and got some office work done. It was a blessing to see some old friends and to make new ones as there are many new staff members since we lived there.
