Back Around Again

August is passing us by even more rapidly than July did. It's hard to believe our time here in Michigan is coming to a close.

After visiting with Calvary Baptist in Preble, NY, we traveled down to Virginia again. We were able to catch up with close family friends that we missed last time as well as meet with another pastor in the Richmond area. We're grateful to God for the help we received from Grace Bible Church with some car trouble we had while we were there.
Once in Michigan we attended family camp with our sending church. It was great to spend a week with the members of InterCity Baptist. Although several of our family members came down with colds while we were there, we were still able to spend at least a meal just about every day with friends and sit under some practical teaching from the Word. After presenting our work to the whole church last Sunday, we've continued to meet with members of that church as well as leaders of two recent church plants in the Downriver Detroit area.
This last Sunday found us at Community Bible Church in Trenton, MI. It was a joy to be with these believers, and our only regret was that we could not spend a much longer time renewing our friendships there.
We plan to travel almost 1,700 miles (2734 km) this week, so please keep us in your prayers!
