It’s been good to be “liberated” from the “quarantine” and back to work at the Mission. What a testimony it’s been to witness God’s hand of protection upon staff and clients during this “Lockdown” with no cases of the Corona Virus! In addition, you’d be pleased to see the progress on the new building site. I’m impressed that in the midst of the present turmoil in our nation, God has a strategic purpose for the Mission. A verse that’s been pressing on my heart is: “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” (Isaiah 59:19) Whatever Satan is up to in the world, our God is way ahead and in Sovereign control. Let’s take heart, and walk in resurrection power (1Cor.15:58)!
Your prayerful support is most appreciated during these days. Chris has been doing remarkably well, gaining in strength and blood count. She has really utilized the swing on the front porch for enjoyable “exercise”, while taking in “some rays.” We’re actually learning to relax a bit and “smell the roses.”
I’m attaching a requested article written by a local newspaper reporter, Burt Cole, resulting from a request to promote my book on “Facing Depression.” In light of the present Covid-19 lockdown, I thought the book could help the increasing number of depressed people. I just wanted to share some of its content and its availability through Amazon, etc. Well, Burt came to our home for the interview, which turned out to be a delightful and unexpected time of fellowship in the Lord.. He did a masterful job in capturing my heart and mission, and I wanted to share it with you. To God be the Glory!
With our ongoing love and gratitude,
Bill & Chris
