Thank you for your continued prayers for us as we settle back into life in Florida for our time on furlough.
Here are some praises from the last month:
- Bruce was very encouraged by his time attending the missions conference at Washington Heights Baptist in Ohio. A special thanks to Larry and Bev Smith who provided airport runs, all of his transportation, and lodging.
- We traveled to Camp Victory in Samson, Alabama where Bruce was the missionary speaker each morning. Both he and Laura also had the opportunity to share in smaller groups of campers. The camp took an offering during the week that we designated to raise relief funds for pastors in Nicaragua facing extremely difficult financial circumstances due to the current sociopolitical situation. 125 campers raised nearly $900 that will allow us to help many different pastors and their families.
- Bruce was asked last minute to be the chapel speaker at Camp Gilead in Florida during the week of July 9. We are grateful he was able to do this as the scheduled speaker was unable due to health concerns.
- Today begins Bruce's scheduled week at Camp Gilead. He is speaking on missions in the mornings and challenging the teens from the scriptures during the evening sessions. Please pray for fruit from this ministry.
We hope to see many of you as we begin visiting our supporting churches later this month!
Nicaragua Crisis Update
It has been hard to put into words a description of what is happening. This 9 minute video is a very good summary of the situation. Please continue praying.
Thank you for your prayers for our family and ministry partners. We are grateful for your faithful support both in prayer and in giving. Please pray for God's provision as we need to raise $955 in monthly support while on furlough.
Bruce and Laura
