Rehearsing What God Has Done
Well, I must admit we’ve had an exhausting, yet exhilarating furlough so far – five missions conferences in a row is only for the young…or crazy! It certainly does take the pressure off the family when we are reporting back to old friends and supporters, instead of seeking new support! It is thrilling to “gather the church together, and rehearse all that God has done with us and how he has opened the door of faith unto the Argentines in Pilar” (Acts 14:27).
We enjoyed reacquainting with old friends as well as forming new friendships at our home church, Hillsdale, and four other supporting churches this past month. It’s exciting to see the new growth and positive changes in each of these ministries since our last visit.
Good News From a Far Country
We are overjoyed by the response of our church people to the shepherding of the Schmidts in our absence! Since day one, Dr. and Mrs. Schmidt have shown Christ’s love to our people. We are so proud of our church people as they have made sure the Schmidts were taken care of their first few days. Sunday morning attendance has maintained its average of 60, so that’s encouraging as well.
Last year we began a fund to help send our church kids to summer camp. We would like to continue that this year. Through your donations, we can provide a discount to faithful church members to make camp more affordable, or even possible. Click here for more information on the children’s camp. The cost of camp this year is $76. If the Lord would have you to contribute toward this, please let us know or send your donation directly to our mission board designated “Summer Camp.”
