Hello neighbor, this is Steve...
Can you believe it's May already? Where has the year gone?
May is the month we set aside to honor and remember our Mothers. So, if your mother is still living today make sure you call her or even better, go by and see her.
In January of this year, the Lord chose to call my mom home. I was privileged to be a part of her funeral. I will never forget my mom, she was a God-fearing woman who raised her children to serve the Lord. Mom led by example; she taught us about Jesus, she taught us the way we should go. My mom was the rock that held our family together. I believe a mother's love for her children is the closest love a person can have to the love of God. No one here on this earth could ever love you like your mother. If you have a God-fearing mother, you should be thanking God for her every day. Mom never stopped loving me no matter what I had done; just like Jesus, no matter how far away from Him we go, He will always be there waiting for us to come back.
Let's remember this Mother's Day to tell our mothers how much we LOVE and APPRECIATE them!
Here is an update on some of the projects we have been working on:
It has been a busy time for the ministry. There are so many people hurting and in need. Storm after storm has hit and caused so much destruction, even in the past month. We are still working in these areas-getting supplies to the folks who have lost so much.
We ask for your continued prayers for our missionary and all Christians in Nigeria and other parts of the world where persecution is so severe. Christians are being killed in horrific ways on a daily basis. Let us remember to cry out to God on their behalf.
Church #40 in Haiti is coming along; services are already being held at the site and lives are being changed. Our goal is to have the church completed this year; please help us pray for God to send in the funds.
Thank you to all of you who have sent in funds for the van. It will soon be on the streets of Rio Bravo, Mexico - bringing many to church to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Happy Mother's Day to ALL the Moms!
Happy Birthday Steve! - May 9th
