Letter for September and October 2015
25 August 2015
Dear Friends and Partners,
It is our belief that God’s desire is that all of us be filled with His JOY. Jesus spoke two things that have great impact upon each of us as believers. In His teaching on “Perfected Love,” he said, “These things I have spoken to you, that your JOY may be full” (John 15:11 NKJV). Then in His prayer to the Father he said, “These things I speak in the world, that they (believers) may have my JOY fulfilled in themselves” (John 17:13 NKJV).
What is this JOY that Jesus spoke about? Lately, we have been thinking much about “the JOY of the Lord,” and have come to the conclusion that JOY is not necessarily the absence of sorrow but it is having a heart filled with GLADNESS and CHEERFULNESS. Our friend, Clay McLean, wrote a song entitled, “GOD’S CHILD,” in which these words are found: “JOY in the midst of sorrow.”
In recent months, we have experienced sorrow. We have not only experienced the loss of dear friends but we also lost Sherry’s oldest brother. In the midst of those situations, we rediscovered both the intimacy and faithfulness of our God. Oh, He was there all the time, but even we have times in which we take Him for granted. We can truly say that our JOY has been refilled and it is our prayer that you, too, will experience a refilling of “the JOY of the Lord.”
Looking to the future, we are planning to be in the states of Illinois, Indiana, and New Hampshire during the month of September and in Vermont and the provinces of Ontario and Quebec in Canada during the month of October.

As you can see, we plan to be very busy over the next several months and we ask that you stand in faith with us. God has been faithful to give us the strength that we need to face the demands of ministry and we expect that He will continue to make provision in every area.
We want you to know that you are loved and appreciated and it is our desire that you will be blessed in every area of life: physically, materially, financially and spiritually. Remember the promise given by the apostle Paul, “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19 NKJV).
