After Olivia and Daniel’s wedding, we once again settled into ministry mode. We have been able to share in churches who have faithfully supported us from the beginning and also in brand new churches. These times have been sweet. We also have had times with individuals that care for us some who support us financially others that love and pray for us regularly. We have been greatly encouraged.
We have traveled to Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, across Indiana and even into Canada. Along the way we have enjoyed rich times sharing life and ministry. We did have some vacation time along the way to enjoy God’s beauty and see special historical sites as well.
We still have much to do this summer, two weddings ahead and much support to find. We have many more churches to report to and still need a few more presentation opportunities if we are to be successful. Please pray for us as we try not just to ask for help but also to be a blessing to the people we meet and to the loved ones we reconnect with.
We still have time for one-on-one meetings. Send us an email or give us a call: Art’s number is 317-801-3022. We still want to hear from you and see as many of you as possible. Help us redeem the time with you this summer before October comes, and we once again return to Russia.
Please consider helping us make additional connections. For example our friends in Canada had a few of their friends from church over. We had a barbeque and shared our ministry video. Simple to do, no surprise sales pitch just an opportunity to let God connect others with our ministry.
Next on the schedule is helping Elisabeth, our oldest, with Vacation Bible School (VBS) then her wedding later in August. In between we plan to attend the Blaker Family reunion Aug. 2 in Michigan to see family members we haven’t seen for several years. We are enjoying the time and trying to balance responsibilities of work and family which is not always easily done.
