Barb Payne Update – Change in Ministry

August 26, 2013 Leave a comment

Dear Friends and Ministry Partners,

I am writing to let you know that, effective July 31, 2013, I have officially retired from full-time ministry with BCM, Int., and I no longer receive funding through them. I am also no longer affiliated with Peace Officers for Christ, Int.

Ray and I joined BCM with their branch which was then called “Handy*Vangelism.” The main focus was with grieving parents. We had contacts with other grieving parents, mainly parents of slain police officers, so this was a “good fit.”

Since Ray passed away last September, I have been living in Virginia with my daughter, Deb and her family. I have been praying that the Lord would give me a ministry here. In the last few months He has put me in contact with several widows with whom I have been able to meet. I came across an excellent devotional booklet for widows. I have been able to share this with them as a source of encouragement, also some other information on grief issues.

25 years ago, our son, David, was killed in the line of duty as a Lewiston, Maine police officer. With this, we gained a whole new “family” in the law enforcement community. Today was David’s birthday. Therefore I thought it would be fitting to let you know that I am updating the “Only One Son” tract, and that it will be printed and available this fall.

If you wish to continue to support my part-time tract ministry, and my desire to minister to other widows, please feel free to contact my sponsoring church at the address below. They will provide you with a receipt.

Ray would often remind our supporters that our efforts would be futile without the backing of God’s people who pray. Thank you very much for your many prayers for us over the years. I would appreciate your continued prayers, and I would love to keep in touch with you. I would love to pray for you as you send me your requests.

In Christ’s boundless love,
