“for the shields of the earth belong unto God: He is greatly exalted.” Psalm 47:9b

Dear Friends and Prayer Partners,  warm greetings, in His Name – Galatians 1:3-5!

The month of May recognizes law enforcement across our land.  May 15th is National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day, as well as Armed Forces Day.

We have been involved in many events with law enforcement for the last 21 years, and consider ourselves greatly honored to be accepted by our “family” of men and women who are called the “Thin Blue Line.”

Beginning the 1st day of the month, we traveled to Newport, Rhode Island, to be part of the Annual Aquidneck Island National Police Parade, in Newport.  This is always a tremendous tribute to law enforcement, and a privilege to be invited to as we have for quite a number of years now.

Then a busy week, starting on Monday, the 10th, speaking at a Police Appreciation, hosted by Pastor Matthew Smith,n and his people at Faith Baptist Church, in Cortland, NY, that included a terrific meal and fellowship!

Both of us have had some health issues that are being addressed; tests and ongoing treatments have kept us busy with appointments, too.

We are extremely grateful for our loving family and friends who uphold us in
