Thank you for your prayers for us over the past week as we had the FML stand at the Missionary Convention. After discussions with other missionaries who also had stands there, it was fair to say that many of us reached the conclusion that generally the interest in the stands was much less this year in comparison to other years. For whatever reason, there were fewer stands and also fewer people coming in to view them after the meetings. Based on this and previous years we are considering whether or not to return next year or whether to take a break for a year and then return. Please pray that we will know guidance over the coming year.
We thank God for another booking for a meeting for next year, but still we have gaps and are available for the incoming winter season. We are encouraged that we have bookings for a number of new venues where we have never been, but we still would like more opportunities. Please pray to this end.
September is now upon us. Again a month of mixed emotions for us. We are looking forward to what the month hold for FML, but we are conscious that September last year was when dad (Cecil) was diagnosed with cancer and passed away very soon afterwards. It has been a long year in one sense, yet it has flown by in another sense. Please pray for us as a family over the next few weeks as we approach the 1st anniversary. Praise God He is with the Lord.
We have a few deadlines to meet over the next few weeks with regard to FML projects which we need to complete. Please pray that the Lord will enable us and again will guide and give wisdom.
Thank you once more for your continued prayers for us.
