“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts.” 1 Chronicles 16:8-9 (NIV)
June is finally here and in a few weeks summer vacation begins. No one will be happier than Sherri as Rolf will be home on June 29th. His last classes for the school will be on June 28th and the last “Faith or Fiction“ class is June 24th. We pray these last few weeks will continue to remain as calm and without incident as it has been for the last few months.
We have just good news to report from China! This last “Faith or Fiction” class all 18 students have become Christ followers. PRAISE God!! Not only did they become believers but it happened very early in the startup of the class. They are attending church and growing in the Lord. It is so exciting and rewarding to see how God has used this program to draw so many to faith. We thank God and the person that gave Rolf the material to use.
A Christian friend of one of his leaders heard about the class arousing her curiosity. Rolf met with her and she is very interested in bringing this program to the church. To learn more about the class he invited her to participate in these last few weeks of classes and then join the new class when he returns. If needed she could also become one of his leaders.
“Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!” Rev. 7:12
On the home front: We know God is working with our upcoming move by finding buyers for our townhouse even before we thought of putting it on the market. And we are trusting God for our next home BUT not having the confirmation of it has caused Sherri to feel some anxiety and some sadness in just the fact that we have to move. We are planning and counting on living in the new affordable senior apartments near here which are scheduled to be completed sometime in Feb/Mar of next year. We have our names in to receive an application which won’t be mailed out until about 90 days before completion.
Meanwhile Sherri has been trying to contact the property manager to obtain more info on what will be needed to make sure we have all the paperwork needed to assure we can have our application in as quickly as possible. She has had no response to her phone messages or email. Please PRAY for a favorable response. PRAY also peace for Sherri and that she will “cast all her cares on Jesus” and fully trust on His provision. “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” Psalm 56:3
Thanks for being there for us in the highs and lows and praises and prayers. We couldn’t do this without you on this journey with us.
