Thank you, South Texas
With itineration almost complete, our family would like to say thank you to all the churches who have graciously hosted us during 2005. Jim will travel to a few churches in 2006, but officially our full-time itineration is complete as the year draws to a close. We thank the Lord for His Hand of protection during this year of travel, His protection with Jim on the road and with the family at home. Thank you to the new churches who have joined in partnership with us in this ministry, and for those churches and individuals who faithfully continue in prayer and in contributions every month.
This year Jim helped raise over $40,000 for BGMC (Boys and Girls Missionary Crusade) in Louisiana, along with preaching regularly February – December. His father accompanied him during the year, while we joined him for the summer. In July we all were able to visit WRMV radio in Lynchburg, Virginia, which was one of the first stations to begin playing SpiritSongs music. We also completed the CD, “For the Nations” and produced “CrossTribe” for AIC graduate Patrick Matt.
Music Notes & Praise Report
We often hear from others around the world that have found our music on the web and have put it to use. Pastor Robert Westaway from Timaru, New Zealand sends news that in November during a series of meetings with Evangelist Dr. J.R. Roper, the pastor’s mother was healed of twobrain tumors as the congregation began to sing “The Spirit of the Lord,” one of Linda’s songs. As they sang, faith began to rise. Dr. Roper prayed for her, and the altars filled—to God be the glory!!
Italy Missions Trip
In January Jim will return full-time to American Indian College. In May 2006 Linda plans to travel to Italy with a team from Lighthouse Church. The group will be accompanying Mark Purkey in crusades in Rome and Florence. The cost Linda needs to raise for the trip is $3,000. If the Lord lays this on your heart to help win souls during these crusades, you may direct your funds either to us personally (contact us) or to our account with the Assemblies of God US Missions, #214468, 1445 North Boonville Avenue, Springfield, MO 65802.
