We want to share the PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE with you.
PAST: Our trip in December and January included Texas to Florida, to North Carolina (music conference), to Tennessee and back home. We were visiting supporters and ministering to them but they blessed us in so many ways of encouragement. We saw a lot more snow and ice then we expected in the deep South! Sadly, we missed seeing three long-time supporters in northern Alabama due to a sudden winter storm. However, we rejoiced when we heard from a former student and disciple in Guatemala who wrote saying he now had three choirs in his church. Also, he reported that their latest baby now bears the name “Felipe” named for his music professor!
PRESENT: This semester at Rio Grande Bible Institute has us also very involved with Bibleville Conference Grounds in the music program, as we both play in the orchestra. Also, Arleen sings in the ladies choir and Phil plays in the wind ensemble. RGBI actually owns Bibleville so God is using us in the outreach ministry of Bible conferences. Pray for our students that are now half-way through the Spring semester.
FUTURE: We would be remiss if we didn’t mention that our oldest granddaughter Martha Witt is getting married this month in Roseburg, OR. The groom’s uncle is a cellist so Phil has written a cello duet for the occasion, and the bride will come down the aisle to the tune of Grandpa’s trumpet! Then the end of May we have been invited to participate in a wedding of former students in Cuernavaca, Mexico. This is the year of our 50th wedding anniversary and we are looking forward to all four children being with us the end of June, and as many grandchildren as possible. We also expect many other friends and relatives. We have a lot of planning to do to get ready for their arrival for this joyous occasion of all being together.
Thank you so much for your support through prayer and finances in the PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE. It is such a joy to serve the Lord where He has placed us.
In the service of the King,
