It's been a while since we've updated you all, but that's not because there isn't anything to talk about! We've been extremely busy this summer! Dan and Brenda, along with several teams throughout the summer, had a great time in Honduras. The church is complete! Dan was also able to build them a bathroom and storage room outside the church with extra materials left over from the church. Those people absolutely love their new facility. I spent 10 days there at the end of June/first of July and on our last day of VBS we had 165 kids! They have never had Bible School before, or anything similar, so they absolutely loved it! Our last service in the church was packed out. We had people sitting in the window sills, on paint buckets, and standing outside. Who knows... We may have to knock out a wall and expand before long!
As most of you know, the Vice President of our ministry, Lemuel Evans, passed away two weeks ago after a long fight with MS. Lemuel was Dan and Brenda's brother-in-law, but he has always been more like a brother to them both. It has been a very trying time for their family and our ministry as a whole. We want to say a special "Thank You" to everyone who came by, brought food, sent cards or notes of encouragement, called, text or messaged on Facebook. Please continue to keep the family in your prayers, and especially Debra, Brenda's sister and our CFO, as she grieves and adjusts to life without Lemuel. She was by his side every moment through his diagnosis and served Him as Jesus would. She is heartbroken, but she knows without a doubt that she will see him again in Heaven. Again, your continued prayers are greatly appreciated.
I will be flying out Monday to Honduras with a team of young people from Alabama. We will be visiting the orphanage, hosting VBS, holding an infant care seminar and several other ministry opportunities. Please pray for safety and an effective trip! We hope to see someone come to know the Lord over the next few days.
New Desire will be in revival this week, Sunday-Wednesday, at Riverview Baptist Church in Calhoun, GA. For more info on times, please see our schedule. New Desire would love to see you there!
We love you all, and We Just Love Jesus!
