The Sunday before Valentines Day we went to New York to present our mission field to two different churches. From the morning to the afternoon we were with Pastor Burdick and Maranatha Baptist Church in Mayville. It wasn’t all that long ago that I filled in the pulpit for Pastor Burdick and met the congregation. It was good to see them again and some new faces too. Something fun and unexpected, in honor of Valentines Day a gentleman sang some love songs during lunch. This was definitely a first for us. Never before have we been serenaded in our travels! We had a lot of fun and enjoyed being with the church. After the afternoon service in Mayville, we traveled to Lockport to be with First Bible Baptist Church for their evening service. I’ve known Pastor Strobel for many years through the Teen Tristate meetings and looked forward to being at his church for the first time. During the service I was given the opportunity to preach and show our video presentation. It won’t be long now before we leave for the Philippines! Please keep us in prayer as we finish deputatation with just a few more meetings to go!
