Summer’s End

Well, it is hard to believe but the summer is quickly coming to an end! Most of the Bible Clubs have been completed. After our last update we held the Bible Club Blitz in Natchez, Mississippi. Our teams (Aaron and Laura’s) did 6 clubs a day in the Fayette/Port Gibson area. Boy, there are sooooo many daycares up there!!! There were a total of 8 teams doing 37 clubs that week with an enrollment of 1033 kids and 271 professions of faith! We were so grateful for the young people and parents that went along and worked so hard! God had truly worked in the hearts of the children and adults since last year and the harvest was plentiful. We thank the Lord for allowing us to see it.

Thank you to all the people who have prayed for us since Aaron’s sister, Christa, went to be with the Lord. God’s grace has been so evident and so sufficient for us during this time.

We had a great CHEF of Louisiana convention. The staff and volunteers did a GREAT job! We had around 100 children in attendance on our American Roadtrip adventure. During the two day seminar the kids saw and learned about the great heroes of our faith, George Washington, Dolly Madison, and Paul Revere. They even had the opportunity to go and listen as our Governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal, addressed the parents!

Our travels will take us next to the country of Ghana, West Africa! Lord willing, we will be leaving September 3rd and returning September 15th. This will be the first time that either of us have been in Africa and we are excited to see what God will do! We will be taking a team of 4 young people with us to present the Gospel in public schools, share the Gospel in local assembly places, and host a weekend training conference for some of the young people from several Ghanian churches. Please pray for us when the Lord brings us to your minds! Here are a few specific prayer requests:

-Health and safety of the whole team

-Spiritual preparedness of the team

-Hearts open to the Gospel

-The Christian young people that we will be training and discipling

We love y’all and appreciate your prayers so much,

Aaron, Laura, and Jonathan
