Lot's Going On!

Been a while since I posted so I thought I would get a bit caught up.

Just before our 25th anniversary, I had the opportunity to speak at the Father/Son Retreat at the Iowa Regular Baptist Camp. It was a great weekend! The program guy, Aaron, was hoping and praying for 40 guys to show up and God blessed and the final tally was 110!

I spoke and both Daniel and Philip shared their testimonies. That was the very first time that all three of us ministered together in that fashion. I was a very proud Papa.

Following the Father/Son Retreat we held Philip's graduation reception at the house, which was very well attended. Everyone seemed to have a great time. Good food as well!

Sunday May 18th was graduation day for Philip. Everything went off without a hitch.

May 23-25 we had the privilege of hosting Jason Nightingale at our church for an extended weekend of ministry. Jason is with Wordsower International, and among other things is speaking the Word of God in the Church across the United States.

While at Clear Lake this past weekend, He spoke Romans on Friday, 1 Corinthians on Saturday, Ephesians on Sunday morning and the Book of Hebrews on Sunday evening. It was an incredible time in God's Word! I'm so thankful for Jason's ministry and friendship.

While Jason was here he shared about his international ministry of caring for widows and orphans in Africa and India. God was working and two of our young ladies are contemplating a possible short term missionary trip to India in the future. How awesome it is to see God working in the lives of His people!

Waiting to see what God will do next!

I Remain,
Pastor Steve
