Warren Wiersbe wrote On Being a Servant of God with the idea of helping those who are beginning their ministry all the way to those who have been serving for a lifetime. One of the points he makes is that we should always be reading at least one book, expanding our horizon on the things of God. If you haven't had the opportunity to read this yet, I do suggest that you do. If you have, like me, maybe you should consider this a yearly read. The basic and fundamental truths that Wiersbe states are a lifetime lesson for all of us.

Romans 15:4 "For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope."
You see, by knowing the the O.T. Scriptures, it will help with your hope in the Lord, that we may see what He has done in the past and we know that the Lord never changes so we can count on Him for us today. How is your hope in the Lord? Read about Job and his patience, Abraham and his heart to follow God, David and the years he waited for the promise of his kingship to come to pass. All of these men have something in common, they heard from God and waited for the promise.
2 Corinthians 5:10-11 "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things [done] in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences."

We are going to try and do some camping at some of the National Forests so we can see all that God has created.
We want to say a special thanks to all who have been praying for us and giving financial support. We would not be here without any of you, we pray that the Lord would give fruit to you in your heavenly account.
We would like to invite all of you to our going away party. It is going to be on Saturday June 6th at 4pm. We are doing a pot-luck style party (don't feel obligated to bring anything) and having some good laughs and a time of prayer. Then, on Sunday, Bob will be giving the morning sermon and we will be having a commissioning time as well.
Once again, thanks and we covet your continued prayers and support.

I just wanted to let everyone know that we are praying for all, that the Lord will be continuing to bless each and every one of you. Things here are going really well, we have received a few more people that are giving to us on a monthly basis. Suzanne and I are still working our temporary jobs, hoping that soon we will be our in California then on to Africa.We really appreciate all of your patience as you stand with us to bring the Gospel to Africa. We know that it has been a long road (believe us!!), but we want you to know that we are constantly seeking the Lord and praying for His hand to guide us to Africa.

Suzanne and I are patiently waiting on the Lord to continue the good work that He started a few years ago. It seems like just yesterday that we heard the call to go to Africa and serve the Lord. The past three years have been wonderful for us to grow into His calling and really be able minister to others who are wondering if they have been called as well. It is probably the most popular question we get, "how did you know?" Well, to be honest, it was a holy, perfect peace that the Lord can only give that rested upon us while we were making decisions. We read and studied the Word really giving ourselves over to the work of the Holy Spirit. The real work that the Lord is doing now is preparing us to be away for so long. I know that we have said this before, but this time that we have been able to spend with friends and family has been absolutely wonderful. We are glad that the Lord didn't send us off so quickly so we can get a chance to get to know more people so much better.
Also, Suzanne's grandma is in the hospital and it doesn't look good for her. Please keep her in your prayers, she is probably not going to make it much longer. Praise the Lord though, she did accept Jesus as her Lord and Savior just a few days ago!! I believe that the Lord has us here to see her off and to say good-bye one last time. But, who knows, she may pull through and we may be playing cards with her again! Only the Lord knows.
Anyways, we love you all and are so thankful for all of your prayer and financial support. We couldn't be here without any of you, we are constantly praying for each of you that the Lord would continue to bless you and be your rock.
