Happy Mothers day! May 10 update

Blessings to you and Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful mommas.

Mary hosted a wonderful Mother’s Day Tea Saturday afternoon. There were 7 here being treated to Mary’s lavish hospitality. Chocolated strawberries, a variety of teas, and many other treats that you only get in the world’s finest places.

Puppet show for the Mommies!

This update I thought I would start off with letting you know some things to pray for in the upcoming weeks.

1. Next week I will be in the Pagosa Springs area for “The Training of the Twelve”. This is a discipleship time / spring turkey hunt. I am really looking forward to this and being with AMF missionary Bill Fair. I will tell you about this time when I return. Mary will be holding down the ministry at home and hopefully planting her garden. (If it doesn’t snow) :^(

2. Upon returning we will move into promoting the 2 VBS that we will have the following week ( May 25-29). Curtis & Rachael Rhoadarmer , AMF missionaries in NE Colorado, will bring a team of summer missionaries to conduct these VBSs. There will be one in the morning in Gardner. And one in the afternoon in our backyard here in Walsenburg.

3. At this point it seems to be cleared for me to go back into the prison with a Bible study on June 3.

4. On June 6 we will again be working at the La Veta Rodeo Bible Camp.

Now I know the way I worded those prayer requests that it sounds like us “doing” things. As you pray, let me remind us that this is about people and their eternal life, and that what we are to be about is responding to Him. Pray that we will be sourced only by the Father and that what happens will be from Him flowing from us.

I’ve got to tell you about some of my new friends here in Walsenburg. They range in age from 8- 12. Nicky and Andrew are brothers. Santana and JJ are brothers. I met them helping out down at the Morning Star Youth Mission on Thursday nights. We’ve cut wood together and pulled weeds together. They come by looking for work to earn money, and I let them work so that they can have opportunities to hear more about Jesus. Pray for these boys and our times together. Also would you pray that this will open the door to their families and ministry to them.

Mary and I are so thankful for your prayers and support. We know for sure that many of the things that we have seen happen in the last 1 1/2 years here, have happened because of your dedication to pray.

Blessings to you and Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful mommas.

Seeking Him,
Bill and Mary
