“Blessed be the LORD, Who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.” Psalm 68:19

September 4th, 2003

Dear Friends … We praise our God Who daily loads us with benefits and blessings! The Lord wonderfully provided us with a 2000 Buick LeSabre with only 43,000 miles on it! Thank you for your part in praying and providing for reliable transportation! Several emailed us wanting to have a part and one couple, a retired law enforcement officer and his wife, promised a large gift towards it! Our daughter and husband in Maine accepted the ’96 Buick, and will put it to good use … it had grown to sort of be a “part of the family!”

There have been many ministry opportunities since we wrote last month! Barb was a help to daughter Judy and family in Arkansas for a week, and Ray survived “batching” it!

Ray officiated at a wedding ceremony recently, and was able to connect with several guests who were in law enforcement. One was an officer for whose salvation we had prayed – he is tender towards the Gospel. Another was an officer who is near a department we had a connection with a several years ago – he knew the officer Ray visited in the hospital after a shooting. There were two other officers … the Lord always lays the “groundwork” for future opportunities for His Glory! We pray to always be at “the right place and at the right time.” How thrilling to see how the Lord orders our times and events, and opens doors of opportunities! Colossians 4:2-4

The Fall schedule is full … SEPTEMBER offering the following opportunities:
* 5-7 The Annual CLEO (Christian Law Enforcement Officers’) Retreat, at Living Waters Bible Conference, Danforth, Maine
* 20 Law Enforcement “Get Together” at the Thompsons’ – Oakfield, NY
* 21 Genessee Country Church – PM – Oakfield, NY – Pastor Jon Speed
* 22,23 NY IFCA Regional meetings, at Niagara Bible Conference, Olcott, NY
* 28 Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, at Victory Bible Baptist Church, Porters Corners, NY – Pastor Danny Sears
* October 3-6 – The Annual COPS (Concerns Of Police Survivors) Parents’ Retreat in Camdenton, Missouri

In direct answer to your faithful prayer support, we continue to see God’s strengthening and enabling each day. Although we get tired, we always seem to “snap back” in time for the next trip or meeting! Please don’t stop now!!! God is so good!

Keep in touch, and let us know how we can be in prayer for you and yours!
Psalm 118:24

In His Glorious Name,

Barb and Ray
II Timothy 1:12
