Dear Brothers and Sisters,
News from France continues to be encouraging. We just spoke to Philip and his family who gave good reports of this weekend: full house Sunday; 17 teens at the Saturday night meeting; and 5 girls at the college students Bible Study. There are a number of other favorable developments as well.
Though most of us like being in our groove, following Jesus is dynamic not static. I thank God for the present circumstances because it has had a beneficial effect on my personal relationship with Him, has encouraged others to step up to the plate as the Lord works through them and opened doors of opportunity to display Jesus Christ.
Thanks to each of you who have prayed for Peggy, Judy and me as I try to be helpful. Judy’s doctor declared the kneecap completely healed and she no longer is restrained by the leg immobilizer. She continues to have therapy to regain good use of her leg after two months of restraint.
I am planning to visit churches as soon as is possible. If you would like to have us speak at your church please contact me at the email below. I will make note and contact you to confirm a date.
Thanks again for your prayers and faithful support not only in the present but for the many years that you have done so.
Joyfully in Christ,
John and Judy
