It's been a while since our last update! We have had less access to the internet in the US than anticipated, so please forgive our lack of communication.
We have been in Pennsylvania almost 3 weeks now - boy does time fly! We have this last weekend here, and then we're on the road for a month!
This Sunday we are speaking in the am service at Community Baptist Church in Montoursville. After the evening service they will be having a fellowship for us. It will be great to catch up with everyone!
We leave Mon, September 29, and head South to visit Jimmy & Rebecca Barrs in Alabama. After about a week with them, we move on to Florida to see Chris Cartledge and his family for approximately another week. At both of these places we will have opportunities to share the ministry of Word of Life with several individuals, and possibly a few pastors.
Then we will spend a few days in Sebring, Florida with Todd & Susan Patterson, and speak at their church. It's exciting to catch up with these old friends!
We will then meet up with Mary's mom & sister for a week of family fun!
Then back up to Pennsylvania, stopping on the way to visit Dave Kelly & his family and Brad's cousin Rebekah & her husband Mike.
Once back in PA, we have a missions conference at Memorial Baptist Church Nov 1-2, hope to meet up with Mike & Beth Snedeker for dinner, and after LOADS of packing, head back to SA on Nov. 7 to arrive Nov. 8.
SOOOOO, needless to say, please PRAY for our family as we travel! Pray for safety in travels, health of the family, and our sanity as parents! :) We are still trying to do homeschool in the midst of all of this as well.... God is our rock and refuge!
Please pray as well, as we do have a need for new monthly support as well as one time gifts toward the purchase of a new vehicle ($20,000). So far we have received $50 in new support pledged, as well as approximately $700 toward a new vehicle.
Thank you for your prayers! We would love to hear from you - or even see you if we'll be close to you! Just let us know if you'd like to get together.
Mary for the fam
Brad, Mary, Brandon, Marissa & Mya
