A quick note:
I depend on friends and readers for prayer support.
I need it and don’t take it for granted.
Here are three needs for the week:
- I am taking part in today’s funeral service for my lifetime friend and mentor, Jimmy Barrett. Jimmy was a principal, deputy, and a favorite of everyone in the Dry Creek area. Pray for Pastor Sam Burchard and I as we share. Pray for Jimmy’s wife, Linda, children James and Mary Jean, and others.
2. Our new book, Trampled Grass is now available. It is a memoir of our time in Africa. Pray that it will end up in the hands and hearts of readers worldwide.
3. DeDe and I travel to North Carolina at week’s end. Our son Terry, wife Sara, and Emma are moving to Boston. It’s a long way from Dry Creek to Boston (literally and figuratively). Terry is enrolling at Harvard for his PhD in Middle Eastern Studies/Hebrew. Pray for them to be strong in the Lord in a new city and environment.
When you pray, you are holding the rope.
