Great News From The P.I.

Hi all,

I just got some more news from Joe. They have collected over 700 (yes, SEVEN HUNDRED) follow-up cards from the crusade thus far. Joe's voice is gone so please pray that his voice would be restored. Also, they are very tired so also pray for their strength. Joe said that the Lord is being glorified in all the goings-on.

I am attaching a photo that I also received. Please continue to pray for everyone as there are many more days of ministry ahead.

In His service,

Crusade Update

Hi everyone,

Just got information from Joe tonight that the crusade is going well. They are all tired from working hard but are excited because I think something like 300 people made decisions for Christ thus far.

Please continue to pray for their health as they work to bring the Gospel to many. And pray for all of the things associated with the crusade; pray that all would go smoothly and that people would continue to be touched and come to a saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

And also pray that there would be effective follow-up so that those who have made decisions won't get lost in the shuffle or fall by the wayside. They'll need encouragement, bibles, fellowship at a good church, and training and education from the Word.

Thanks for your prayers!! Keep them going up to the Father! I'll post more as I find out more!

God bless,

July 7th

Hi gang,

Just a quick note to ask you to continue to lift up the Nelsons. They appear to be on the tail end of fighting the flu or something so please pray for their health and strength. Pray for Joe as he attends school a couple times a week in the midst of his other ministry activities.

Also pray for the team that will be visiting Joe, Sarah, and the kids. Pray specifically for great opportunities to share the love of Christ with the people there. Pray for many to be brought into the kingdom of God and set free by the Saviour!!

Joe and Sarah are on the front lines, my friends. They are a huge target for the enemy so be fervent in prayer for their well-being. Joe and Sarah take delight in the Lord and pray that they would be like trees planted by rivers of water, bringing forth His fruit in season and that all they do would prosper.

I also wanted to remind people to consider the ongoing expenses that Joe and Sarah will have upon reaching Thailand. We are told in Romans 12.13 to contribute to the needs of the saints and what better way to do that then to support our very own Nelson family!!! Let's partner with them in the work of the Gospel! Thank you for your love, prayers, and support!!

In His service,
