Our time in Mobile, Alabama

This week Christopher had the opportunity to team up with Daryl, a local Mobile area pastor, to go out and share the gospel.  There was a wide variety of responses, including a person who wanted to visit Pastor Daryl’s church.   Another member of this church, Dan, will team up with Christopher tomorrow and they will head out to inner city parts of Mobile, so please be in prayer for open hearts to the good news of Jesus Christ.

And he called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits.    Mark 6:7

We have needed to have a few days of laying low this week between bad weather and our sons all being sick.  They have caught a few different things in the short time we’ve been on the road and currently three of them have a nasty cough and congestion.  We’re hoping they will be in good enough health to visit Pastor Daryl‘s church this Sunday before we leave town.

We will begin a long trek to New Mexico starting Monday.  We will use this time to minister at truck stops and rest stops, focusing on long haul truckers and fellow travelers.  After a short time in New Mexico, we will carry on to Quartzsite, Arizona where we hope for many ministry opportunities.  If all goes well, we plan to stay put in Quartzsite through the rest of the winter. 

We would like to add an additional item to our ministry needs list- large print Bibles or large print New Testaments.  These will be passed out to both homeless with poor eyesight and to the elderly.

Thank you for your continued prayer support.  God continues to line things up, taking us down literal roads without us realizing the purpose until later on.  We have really been in awe to see Him move in this way while we're no one important, just willing to "go".
