May 2003 Newsletter

Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.” I Peter 5:7

Dear Friends and Prayer Partners …

It has been a busy month, as usual, centered on the time of National Police Week! We had some very good meetings in the Binghamton, NY, area, as well as meetings in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

It looked like the activities of National Police Week in Washington, D.C., would not be in this year’s schedule since the weekend prior and following were already full. It just would not warrant Ray’s being able to drive down and back. Then, through an officer who has been close to our family since David’s death, we had a phone call that Lewiston Police Department (where David served) was sending a plane ticket for Monday through Thursday – still allowing time to drive to Syracuse on Friday for the following weekend!
The 4 days in D.C. opened so many opportunities with parents and police officers! Time and space are not adequate to relate some of the special, God-appointed contacts!

Thank you for your prayers for Ray’s headaches … they are all but gone! Guess the doctor was right when he said, “… maybe it’ll be one of those things that just go away, and we’ll never find out what caused it.” (We do not know what the cause was, but we do believe God answered prayer!)

The Ladies Bible Study that Barb helped teach is over for the summer; it was a rich source of blessing in a study of some of the Psalms. She has had opportunity to do some writing for our mission’s periodical, RENEW, addressing grief issues of bereaved parents. She would appreciate prayer as they have asked her to write an article for each issue; RENEW is published bi-monthly.

Family news:
* In April, our 14 year-old grandson, Kyle, won the Maine State Wrestling Championship, and then went on to place 2nd in all of New England!
* Our daughter, Deb, and family, are moving from the Cleveland, Ohio, area to the Harrisburg, PA, area. Rob, a college administrator, will assume duties at Harrisburg Area Community College.
* Our daughter, Judy, is expecting their 3rd child in December … and is feeling pretty queasy at this stage of the game!

Upcoming commitments:
* May 25th – Speaking at all services at Faith Baptist Church – Warrensburg, NY
* May 30th – June 1st – Missions Conference at Mechanicsburg Baptist Church, in Mechanicsburg, Ohio
* June 21st – 22nd – Church Picnic and Sunday Services at Colchester Bible Baptist Church, Colchester, Connecticut
* June 28th – 29th – Police Appreciation at Peoples’ Baptist Church, Newfield, NY

How very much we appreciate those of you that the Lord has raised up who faithfully pray for us! May the Lord continually encourage and bless you … we pray for you, too!

Love, in Christ,

Barb and Ray

II Timothy 1:12
