Since our last update I've travelled nearly coast-to-coast and settled back somewhere in the middle. On 7 November, we met with the people of Community Baptist Church, San Luis Obispo, CA. We took an extra opportunity on that Monday to get to know Pastor Shanks and his family. It was encouraging to me to get to know this group of faithful believers reaching out to their changing community.
Next, we went to Lubbock Baptist Temple. Since my aunt lives in the area, we invited her along to the meetings when we presented our ministry; we were glad for the opportunity for the kids to meet her. Lubbock Baptist Temple was a delight to get to know, and we think they may become our partners in the future.
Pray that God keeps us safe and healthy during this time of travel. Pray also that God would use my preparation time to grow me spiritually so that I am equipped to teach his word in Zambia. Thank you for keeping us in your prayers.
