Dear Praying Friends and Family:
My family, and I pray you all had a blessed Thanksgiving. It was such a blessing to think about all the Lord has done this year. We have so much to thank Him for! It is hard to believe the Christmas season is already here and 2004 is only a few more weeks away. 2003 is going by so quickly…

We started the month of November in western Washington state where we had several scheduled church meetings. Later in the month we traveled to a church in Oregon for another service on the way back to Mountain Home, Idaho for a missions conference at our home/sending church. While in Mountain Home, my pastor and I spent one morning in a state juvenile facility just outside of town. At the end of the service, we were able to lead five of the young men to the Lord! Although we rejoice in the decisions those boys made, it was heartbreaking to see all the 13 to 18 year old boys in that facility. Most of these boys are completely blind to the bondage and captivity of sin that is so evident in their young lives. The young people of our country desperately need our help and prayers.

The last week in November, we left Mountain Home and headed toward Walla Walla, Washington for another prison revival. After pulling the trailer through a snow covered pass, we stopped in Pendleton, Oregon where we discovered our trailer frame was cracked and broken. As you may remember, the frame broke on the driver's side a few months ago, but this time the frame broke on the passenger's side. We sure thank the Lord for our supporting church in Pendleton. The pastor in Pendleton put us in contact with two members of the church who were experienced welders. That same evening they were able to repair our trailer frame at no cost to us! The Lord always provides! After our delay, we continued on to the Washington State Penitentiary where the revival team saw fifteen men saved. Praise the Lord!!! Once again, we praise the Lord for keeping us safe as we travel!
Answered Prayer / Prayer Requests: Matt 21:22 'And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."
Thank you all for your faithful support and prayers. We pray the Lord blesses each and every one of you during the wonderful Christmas season. As we are surrounded by a world celebrating the largest commercial holiday of the year, we can thank God for the greatest gift He has ever given us, His only begotten Son, the True Reason for the season, Jesus Christ.
- As of the end of November, we are receiving 83% of our needed monthly support with 95% promised.
- We are still trusting the Lord for 100% of our support to be promised by the end of December.
- Please pray for us as we travel to Indiana after Christmas to pick up our new 5th wheel trailer. After living in a borrowed trailer for almost an entire year, it will sure be a blessing to have a larger home of our own.
- Our full-time deputation is almost over. We will be spending most of January and February in prison and training classes in Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida to finish preparing for our ministry in the West.
In His Service,
